Ohio State HC Urban Meyer believes Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs is "one of the best players in the country."

"I'm 110 percent," Diggs said when asked about the major leg injury he suffered last year. "They say when you break your leg you get a little taller and a little faster, and I got both, I think." Diggs will be labeled as one of the nation's best playmakers. We loved his long speed, but feel Diggs was a bit straight-linish in his play style.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Maryland redshirt senior LB Matt Robinson must stay healthy in 2014 to attract the NFL's attention.

Robinson moved to linebacker last season after beginning his career at safety and produced immediately, ranking fourth on the squad with 73 tackles, including 10 for loss. "The adjustment was smooth, but he also has a lot of developing left to do at the position," Brugler wrote. "Robinson looks the part, but is leggy with little muscle definition and needs to groom his body more for the rigors at linebacker. He takes sharp, aggressive angles to the play with good pursuit speed to chase and a natural nose for the ball. Robinson's lack of functional strength is easy to spot on tape, struggling to shed or generate much pop at the point of attack, but his motor continues revving even when locked up." Robinson has missed a huge chunk of playing time in recent seasons with a torn labrum, rotator cuff problems, and a groin injury.

If production were the basis of draft position, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler writes that Maryland senior DE Andre Monroe would be an early-round pick.

Unfortunately, it isn't, and Monroe stands just 5-foot-11 and 270 pounds. Because of his determination and huge collegiate production (led the team with 17.0 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks last year), he'll probably get a shot at the next level anyway. "He has a tweener body type and skill-set, but plays with a nonstop motor and finds ways to be effective, drawing some comparisons to former Rutgers DT Eric Foster who went undrafted in 2008, but played meaningful snaps with the Colts for a few seasons," Brugler wrote.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Maryland senior FB Tyler Cierski must stick on special teams to make it in the pros.

"A traditional fullback prospect, Cierski is a smash mouth, downhill blocker who takes pride in clearing holes for running backs to pick up positive yardage," Brugler wrote. "He has only 15 career rushing yards so his value will have to come on special teams if he hopes to stick on a NFL roster." Cierski, a jumbo-sized 5-foot-11 and 260 pounds, runs a 4.74 40-yard dash.

Maryland senior cornerback Jeremiah Johnson "needs to stay strong in 2014 to bolster his NFL resume," notes CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Injuries limited Johnson to three games last year. He was a full-time starter and flashed NFL potential in 2012, however. "He is quick and fluid with the length and aggressive nature to be a factor vs. the run and on special teams, but needs to stay strong in 2014 to bolster his NFL resume," Brugler wrote.

Maryland redshirt senior QB C.J. Brown "has some passing skills that translate favorably to the next level," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler

"Although the production has been pedestrian, Brown has some passing skills that translate favorably to the next level," Brugler wrote. "However the big red flag with Brown is durability as he has had to deal with a number of injuries the past few seasons and desperately needs a healthy senior campaign if he has any hopes of playing professionally." Brown was named the team’s offensive player of the year and MVP last year, becoming the first Terrapin to pass for over 2,000 yards and rush for over 500 yards in a single season.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler passes along that Maryland redshirt senior DT Darius Kilgo "has garnered mid-round projections from some scouts."

Kilgo is a clogging presence in the middle of Maryland's 3-4 scheme, a DT who generates "movement with his brute strength to bully blockers backards," according to Brugler. "Kilgo is built like a bookcase with a stout, sturdy frame and flashes some lateral quicks to sidestep-and-go when working off blocks," the analyst observed. "He plays with heavy, aggressive hands, but is still learning how to use his big paws with inconsistent shed and rush moves. Kilgo tends to pop upright and needs to improve his pad level, relying on his ability to overpower rather than leverage or mechanics. He doesn't have much range and needs to show more instincts on the field, but his anchor and raw strength has garnered mid-round projections from some scouts." He tallied 37 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks last year from the zero and one techniques.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs reminds him of "former OSU WR Ted Ginn Jr."

"Maryland WR Stefon Diggs reminds me a lot of former OSU WR Ted Ginn Jr....both the good and the bad. Hopefully he stays healthy in 2014," Brugler tweeted. Diggs suffered a fractured fibula back in October. Prior to injury, Diggs was one of the more dynamic offensive weapons in the country. Unfortunately for Diggs, he only played in seven games as a sophomore and had 34 receptions for 587 yards (17.3 yards per catch) and three TDs in seven games for Maryland in 2013.

ESPN's Mel Kiper says Maryland junior OW Stefon Diggs' "exceptional change-of-direction quickness reminds a little bit of Peter Warrick."

"There might not be a more elusive target in the college game than Diggs," writes Kiper. Diggs suffered a fractured fibula in October. Prior to the injury, he was one of the most explosive offensive weapons in the country, so we hope his joystick quicks weren't lost on the operating table. Diggs hinted at playing four years with the Terrapins last August. If he has a big season, it'll be interesting to see if Diggs' tune changes.

Maryland sophomore T Moise Larose has been suspended for the 2014 season for violating the athletics department’s student code of conduct.

Larose started a few games at left tackle in 2013 as a true freshman after the team's starter abruptly departed the team. The sophomore-to-be then suffered a foot injury against Syracuse, which ended his season. "According to the Maryland student-athlete handbook, a one-year suspension is dealt for a third positive drug test," the Washington Post writes.

Jets selected Maryland CB Dexter McDougle with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

McDougle (5-foot-9 3/4, 196) lasted only three games as a senior before a year-ending shoulder injury, which should be healed by camp. He finished college with 27 starts and six interceptions. McDougle ran 4.47 at the Terrapins' Pro Day, adding a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. A quick-twitch mover with a physical playing style but short arms (30 5/8") and sub-optimal height, McDougle's size limitations may force him to slot corner in the pros. He does offer upside to develop into a quality nickel back. McDougle will likely be limited mostly to special teams as a rookie.

Maryland CB Dexter McDougle met with the Raiders this week.

McDougle (5-foot-10 1/4, 196 pounds) worked out for representatives from 24 NFL teams at Maryland's pro day on April 8. The corner ran forties in 4.53, 4.47 and 4.51 seconds. He added a short shuttle of 4.18 seconds and a three-cone drill of 6.84 seconds. As with the combine, a shoulder injury prevented McDougle from doing the bench, but that won't affect his stock any. NFL.com's Gil Brandt calls the Terrapin "a probable third-round draft choice."

Maryland sophomore OW Stefon Diggs will miss spring practice while recovering from a broken leg.

Diggs suffered a fractured fibula in October which required surgery. Prior to the injury, Diggs was one of the more dynamic offensive weapons in the country. Hopefully that explosiveness was not lost with the injury.

Maryland junior LB Cole Farrand (shoulder) won't play in Saturday's game against Boston College.

Farrand, the Terps's leader in tackles per game (8.3), won't be around to help slow down the nation's leading rusher Andre Williams. He suffered the injury in Saturday's victory over Virginia Tech. Farrand missed the Syracuse game earlier this month due to a head injury.

Maryland junior QB C.J. Brown took the blame for the Terrapins' current 1-4 skid.

The Terrapins were 4-0 and ranked No. 25 six weeks ago. Maryland is now 5-4 and it doesn't have a great chance of winning this weekend at Virginia Tech. "It's definitely on me," Brown said. "That reflects that (quarterback) position. I've got to be able to lead the team down the field and make plays." Maryland's top two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, are out for the season with broken legs. "To me," Maryland coach Randy Edsall said, "C.J. gives us the best opportunity to win."
