Maryland sophomore T Jordan McNair has passed away.

McNair was hospitalized after collapsing on the field during a team workout two weeks ago. No details have been released on his exact cause of death. HC DJ Durkin described McNair as "an incredible young man," and "his passion and enthusiasm made him an invaluable and beloved member of our team. Jordan was a hard worker and he always had a smile on his face. He was an extremely talented football player and a humble and genuine human being."

Maryland sophomore T Jordan McNair was hospitalized for an undisclosed medical concern during a recent team workout.

A statement released by Maryland on Monday informed that McNair is in "critical but stable." No information has surfaced regarding the exact nature of the 6-foot-4, 325-pounder's hospitalization. The former four-star recruit played in one game during his true freshman campaign with the Terps last season. We'll pass along information as to McNair's recovery as updates become available.

Maryland received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 CB Tayvion Land.

Stellar spring pledge for Terps HC D.J. Durkin, who has made Virginia Beach, Virginia, something of a backyard for Maryland recruiting -- Land is the eighth player from the locale to either sign with or commit to Durkin's cause since he was hired to turn around the program three years ago. Land (5'8/160) is a legitimate four-star prospect, too, slotting into the Rivals250 board for 2019 as the No. 153 overall recruit in the class. While he's severely undersized, that has not been an issue for him against larger receivers according to Rivals analyst Adam Friedman. That's because the corner has Einstein-ian instincts on the field, which he couples with a strength which belies his stature.

Patriots signed Maryland CB J.C. Jackson.

Jackson (5’10/201) spent two years as a Terp after transferring from Florida to JUCO to Maryland, logging 17 pass breakups and four interceptions and earning honorable mention All-Big Ten from the conference’s coaches in 2017. Dismissed from Florida following armed robbery allegations, Jackson stayed out of trouble with the Terrapins and ran 4.46 at the Combine. Jackson was flagged for nine penalties the past two years and needs to polish his technique, but he offers NFL-level traits on tape.

Sports Illustrated's Andy Benoit assigned the Carolina Panthers an "A-" for their work in the draft.

Benoit was a fan of the Panthers' two notable offensive additions in first-round wideout D.J. Moore and fourth-round tight end Ian Thomas, the latter of whom he sees as a perfect complement to team rock Greg Olsen. He also notes that the team did well to focus on its deficiencies in the secondary, rolling with back-to-back corners in the second and third rounds in LSU's Donte Jackson and Tennessee's Rashaan Gaulden. The Panthers held off until later in the draft to pick up some help in the front seven, where they invested each of their final four picks in Dallas.

Panthers selected Maryland LB Jermaine Carter with the No. 161 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Undersized at 6-foot-even and 228 pounds, Carter was projected to go undrafted, but the Panthers take him off the board in the fifth round. Carter does bring good speed (4.69 forty), however, and stood out on special teams in college. He will try to earn a job there as a rookie.

Panthers selected Maryland WR D.J. Moore with the No. 24 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Carolina added Torrey Smith and Jarius Wright in free agency and should get 2017 second-rounder Curtis Samuel back healthy, but they still needed to add some playmakers. Moore certainly fits the bill. Moore (6’0/210) turned pro as a true junior after starting all three years for the Terps, logging a career 146/2,027/13.9/7 receiving line and earning 2017 Big Ten WR of the Year in a breakout, 80-catch, 8-TD season. Moore shredded the Combine with 97th-percentile SPARQ results, including 4.42 straight-line speed and an explosive 11-foot broad jump. Comfortable and tough over the middle and a post-catch tackle breaker, Moore profiles on the Pierre Garcon-Golden Tate spectrum as a versatile wideout capable of winning at multiple receiver positions.

Walter Football's Charlie Campbell projects the Cardinals to take Maryland WR D.J. Moore with the 15th pick in his final mock draft.

Campbell notes that he doesn't believe that Arizona values QB Lamar Jackson that highly, and if they are to make a trade up, it's going to be for someone like QB Josh Rosen. Campbell believes Moore is a reach at this spot, but notes that they need a WR, and that Arizona has often gone off-board -- our nice way of saying that Campbell believes they reach often -- to get a player they like.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein said, "It wouldn't shock me to see only one wideout go in the first round."

The teams Zierlein spoke with "seem more than willing to wait for a wide receiver this year." This would be bad news for receivers like Maryland's D.J. Moore, SMU's Courtland Sutton, and Alabama's Calvin Ridley who all expect to be selected in the first round. The problem Zierlein suggests is that all of these three receivers have huge question marks in their profiles and none are truly elite prospects. While that may be true, teams consistently need difference makers at the position and will likely snag at least two of them in the back half of the first round.

An NFC Director of Player Personnel says Maryland CB J.C. Jackson is "nothing special right now but he'll get better."

"He's going to be a cover-2 and cover-3 guy," he said. "Nothing special right now but he'll get better. Don't underestimate the way he handles press because teams value physical cornerbacks." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares Jackson to Zach Bowman. "Jackson is a physical cornerback with quality size and an impressive ability to challenge and disrupt in press coverage," he wrote. "He doesn't have great long speed or short-area acceleration to match routes, but he's more than capable of handling bump-and-run coverage and all forms of zone. Jackson needs to improve his ball skills, but has eventual starting talent." Zierlein projects Jackson to go in Rounds 5 or 6. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom ranks Jackson No. 145 overall -- an early fifth-round grade.

One anonymous scout speaking with Bob McGinn Football panned Maryland WR D.J. Moore as "not nearly as good as Mohamed Sanu."

Moore finished WR2 behind Calvin Ridley in McGinn's annual poll of NFL evaluators. "I didn’t think he’d run that well," said the scout of Moore's 4.42 40 time at the NFL Combine. "I thought he’d be 4.6. He’s a good little player. Good hands. I just thought he was really slow. You didn’t see a whole lot of quickness and speed. More of a third receiver, to be honest with you. Not nearly as good as Mohamed Sanu." Other scouts polled by McGinn were higher on the Terps star. "He earns your respect because he has excellent hands, he’s fast enough, he’s big enough and he’s a really good route runner," another scout said. "Plus, he doubles as an effective punt returner." Said a third: "He can go deep and catch over the shoulder. He’s really good at that. He will go over the middle and go get the football. He snatches it out of the air. Off the film he looks like a 6-2 or 6-3 kid."

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Maryland WR D.J. Moore to San Francisco WR Pierre Garcon.

Moore has seen his stock rise as much -- if not more -- than any wide receiver in the class over the past few months. Zierlein compliments the former Terrapin's size (6'0/210) and speed combination, and calls him a "slippery runner" who has good catch-and-run skills. He also notes that Moore struggled with 50/50 balls, and that he'll need to improve the crispness of his routes. Zierlein gives him late-first, early-second grade, and we've heard rumors of Moore going as high as 16 to the Baltimore Ravens.

ESPN's Todd McShay projects the Ravens to take Maryland WR D.J. Moore with the 16th pick in his "dueling" mock draft with Mel Kiper, Jr.

In this scenario, Moore would be the second wide receiver off the board, as McShay and Kiper project Calvin Ridley to go to the Packers with the 14th selection. Moore has really seen his stock rise over the past few months, and at this point it would almost be an upset if he didn't go in the first 32 picks. As McShay notes: "Moore is a speedster who would give Joe Flacco another weapon on the outside."

Maryland WR D.J. Moore visited the Cowboys, Bills, and Patriots this week.

Moore is one of the top receivers in this class among Alabama's Calvin Ridley and SMU's Courtland Sutton. All three of the teams Moore visited this week have picks in the range of 19-to-23. This seems to be where at least one of the three receivers listed above will be selected but there doesn't seem to be a consensus of which. Moore is a crisp route-runner that posted an athletic composite score in the 97th percentile and has a good chance to be selected in the middle of the first round.

Draft Wire's Luke Easterling lists Maryland WR D.J. Moore as a potential replacement for Dez Bryant for the Cowboys.

The Cowboys were likely going to take a wide receiver early even with Bryant, but without him, their wide receiver group is very thin. Moore is one of the more intriguing wideouts in the class, and Easterling believes he'd be an excellent fit for Dallas. "While Moore might be undersized for those role in the opinions of some, Moore’s well-built frame and physical playing style would make him a perfect it to replace Bryant," he writes. If he's still on the board, this one makes an awful lot of sense.
