Maryland HC Randy Edsall will not update redshirt senior QB C.J. Brown's status until Saturday's game against Ohio State.

Brown suffered a sprained left wrist last Saturday against Indiana and missed the second half. "We’ll see if he can practice," Edsall said. "But we won’t have anything [on his status] until game-time." This is just another example of why injury reports should be enforced for college programs. Caleb Rowe would start in Brown's place.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in a 37-15 win over Indiana on Saturday.

C.J. Brown's 29-yard scoring pass to Diggs put the Terps ahead 17-6 midway through the second frame. Diggs, one of the Big 10's most dangerous outside playmakers, has 29 catches for 398 yards and a pair of scores. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler compares Diggs to Ted Ginn Jr.

Maryland junior DE Quinton Jefferson will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

Jefferson recorded 7.5 tackles for loss, including three sacks and had already tallied one sacks this year. Senior Keith Bowers is expected to start in his place. Maryland faces Indiana on Saturday.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught six passes for 56 yards in the school's 34-20 win over Syracuse.

Diggs added 12 yards on one carry too. Watching Diggs, he is far more straight-line and less laterally explosive than people initially noted. Perhaps the injury only added to that, but Diggs plays an on the ground game as is in the mold of a "smaller" receiver.

Maryland junior WR Stefon Diggs caught five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in the school's 40-37 loss to West Virginia.

Most of Diggs' production occurred on a single play of 77 yards. In fact, some will think Diggs looks less explosive than he did prior to last year's injury. Rotoworld's Josh Norris thinks Diggs is a straight-line player.

Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs had seven receptions for 50 yards in a 24-17 win versus South Florida on Saturday.

The Terps entered the fourth quarter with a deficit but outscored the Bulls 10-0 in the frame to pull out the victory. Diggs, you'll recall, is returning from a fractured fibula. Prior to that injury, which occurred last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games. Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote over the summer that Diggs reminded him of Ted Ginn Jr.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Maryland HC Randy Edsall has noted that freshman QB Will Ulmer has been moved to wide receiver.

"It’s ironic that he was about to come see me to talk about exactly what I wanted to talk to him about," Edsall told the Baltimore Sun. "He’s all for it and believes that wide receiver will be his best position going forward." The 6-foot, 190-pound Ulmer,and former four-star recruit, has been quite impressive on scout team making plays against Maryland's first- and second-team defense. The Terrapins WR unit has took quite the hit in the last couple of months, with WR Taivon Jacobs tearing his ACL and brother Levern suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating the school’s code of student conduct. In the beginning of summer, Nigel King, the Terps’ third-leading receiver last season, left the team and transferred to Kansas in August.

Maryland redshirt freshmen WR Taivon Jacobs suffered a season-ending knee injury on the second drive of the Terps’ win against James Madison on Saturday.

Jacobs, one of three starting Terp receivers, took a redshirt as a true freshman after suffering a torn ACL during his senior year in high school. The Terps' receivers are beginning to look a little like Iowa's snake bitten AIRBHG running back unit. You might recall that Maryland’s top receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, both suffered season-ending injuries in the same mid-October game last year. Third WR Nigel King transferred to Kansas last month.

Maryland redshirt senior ILB L.A. Goree "is not a great athlete," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Goree rounds out the trio of no name prospects with next level potential," Pauline wrote, referring to Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil and Matthew Robinson. "Goree is not a great athlete but a tough, instinctive defender constantly making plays on the ball." Pauline slaps Goree with a Round 7-UDFA grade.
Aug 19 - 2:15 AM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that "scouts like" Maryland redshirt senior OLB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil.

"Scouts like Cudjoe-Virgil, who was rotated into the line-up last season," the expert wrote. "He’s a better athlete compared to Goree with great measurables but needs work to complete his game." Pauline sees in Cudjoe-Virgil a seventh-round prospect. Cudjoe-Virgil missed significant time due to injury last year, so proving his health will be of the utmost importance in the fall.
Aug 19 - 1:36 AM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wants to see more consistency from Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs before he'll bump up his Round 6 grade.

"Diggs is another wide out to watch," Pauline wrote. "He has the ability to stretch the field and make big plays from the line of scrimmage. One could argue he should be rated higher than our sixth round grade but I’ll wait for Diggs to up his game and show more consistency before doing so." Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said in July that Diggs is "one of the best players in the country." Prior to suffering a fractured fibula last October, Diggs had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games.

Maryland redshirt senior CB Jeremiah Johnson elicits a "shoulder shrug" from scouts, passes along TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"It's understandable to a point as Johnson sat on the sidelines in 2013 with a toe injury," Pauline wrote. "But go back to the 2012 film and there were times Johnson out played Dexter McDougle, drafted by the New York Jets in the third round last April." Pauline grades the fifth-year senior, limited to three games last year, as a Round 6 prospect. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last month that Johnson "is quick and fluid with the length and aggressive nature to be a factor vs. the run and on special teams."
Aug 18 - 12:03 AM

Maryland redshirt senior DT Darius Kilgo reminds TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline of Eagles' seventh-rounder Beau Allen.

"[Kilgo is] stout enough to hold the point but also nimble enough to get down the line and chase the action," Pauline wrote. "Surprisingly Kilgo’s name does not register with scouts at this time, something I believe will change in a few months." Pauline grades Kilgo as a Round 6 prospect. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last month that Kilgo "has garnered mid-round projections from some scouts."
Aug 17 - 11:33 PM

Maryland senior WR Deon Long would start on TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline's "all underrated team."

"He’s accomplished in all areas of the game; as a pass catcher, blocker and run after the catch guy," the expert wrote. "He also offers decent size and sprinters speed. I feel he deserves a middle round grade and could end up under drafted next April." Unfortunately, work ethic is one area of the game in which Long has come up short recently. Maryland coach Randy Edsall called him out earlier this month after a few lackluster practices. "Deon's got to get a lot better," Edsall told reporters. "I'm not happy with the way Deon is practicing right now." Long missed nearly nine months of action after suffering a broken tibia last season, so a little rust is to be expected.

Maryland coach Randy Edsall called out senior WR Deon Long after Thursday's practice.

"Deon's got to get a lot better," Edsall told reporters. "I'm not happy with the way Deon is practicing right now." Long missed nearly nine months after suffering a broken tibia last season. He recorded 32 receptions for 289 yards and a touchdown before sustaining the injury. Edsall clearly believes it's a lack of effort, as opposed to rust, that is stalling Long's improvement. Long and Stefon Diggs are expected to form one of the Big 10's best receiving duos in 2014.
