Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman is listed as Maryland's third string QB.

Garman was listed as a co-starter in the initial depth chart, with Perry Hills and Caleb Rowe. The competition was wide open and Perry Hills emerged. The redshirt junior started seven games as a freshman before suffering an injury and missing the remainder of that season and the next. Garman was granted immediate eligibility and even had starting experience during his time at Oklahoma State.

Maryland HC Randy Edsall has confirmed that senior RB Brandon Ross will be the team's starter at the position for the 2015 season.

No huge news here. Edsall specifically cited the work Ross had done in looking to tamp down on fumble issues, saying, "He's been more decisive, he's been not putting the ball on the ground." A season ago, he rushed 86 times for 417 yards and four touchdowns. NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter calls the 5-foot-10, 205-pound senior an "underutilized asset," and the numbers back that up given how few carries the compact, shifty back received a year ago.

According to Maryland HC Randy Edsall, junior QB Perry Hills is leading the team's quarterback competition at this point.

Said Edsall, "After we evaluated that, right now, Perry is No. 1 with Daxx [Garman] being a very close second, and then Caleb [Rowe] would be third right now." Hills received most of the first-string reps in scrimmage on Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound junior tore his ACL in 2012, missed the 2013 season and threw only 10 passes a year ago. Perhaps the most surprising part of Edsall's statement is that Caleb Rowe--who many expected to start--is currently third on the depth chart.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Maryland senior RB Brandon Ross has been "underutilized asset" with the Terps.

"He has an ideal compact build, shifty feet in the hole and the ability to set up and blow by tacklers in the open field as both a runner and receiver," Reuter wrote. "More opportunities this season will put him on scouts' radars." The 5-foot-10, 205-pound Ross had just 419 rushing yards on 85 carries last season, mostly because he had only two games with 10 or more carries. He chipped in 14 catches for 212 yards and one score.

Maryland HC Randy Edsall labeled senior transfer QB Daxx Garman a "football junkie."

Edsall and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley have been impressed by Garman's commitment to studying his new playbook with the Terrapins. The quarterback himself called the system "very versatile" and likes that it "implements everything." He put up unimpressive stats while starting for Oklahoma State last season (152-of-277 passes completed for 2,041 yards and a 12/12 TD/INT ratio), but he's part of the Maryland QB competition this August along with Caleb Rowe and Perry Hills.

Maryland sophomore DT Malik Jones will miss the 2015 season with an ankle injury.

Jones suffered the ankle injury during Wednesday's practice. 247 Sports rated the 6-foot-4, 269-pound sophomore as a three-star recruit out of high school. This loss is just the latest for the Terrapin defense, as projected starting linebacker Abner Logan also suffered a season-ending injury earlier this month.

Maryland is conducting a true three-player competition for starting QB duties between Caleb Rowe, Perry Hills and Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman.

"We’re going to evaluate how they do in the practices, how they do in the scrimmages. I’d like to make a decision as quickly as I can so we can get some continuity going with a guy in there. They’re competing," Edsall said. Rowe is coming back after a torn ACL last season. "I don’t feel like I’m very rusty," Rowe said. "It’s just being faster, a little quicker with my reads. I feel fine. My feet are good."

Maryland junior LB Abner Logan has torn his ACL.

According to a tweet sent out by head coach Randy Edsall, the ACL was a non-contact injury. Logan will miss the entirety of the 2015 season. He was projected in a starting role and the Terps will have to scramble for his replacement. Sophomore Jalen Brooks and Connecticut transfer Jefferson Ashiru will likely take the starting outside linebacker spots moving forward.

Maryland senior K Brad Craddock "could land ... in the third round," believes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

"Sure, no team has used a pick in the top three rounds on a kicker since 2005 ... but three of the last four kickers picked that high have come from a Big Ten school, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Craddock joined that club," Reuter wrote. "Don't forget that kickers score about one-third of their teams' points during a course of a season, and they will become even more important to their teams with the extra point moved back to the 15 yard-line." The 6-foot, 189-pound Australian won the Lou Groza Award in 2014 by converting 18 of 19 field goal attempts. You might remember his 57-yard field goal against Penn State. If he repeats his 2014 performance, Day 2 is a possibility.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports that Maryland junior S Sean Davis' draft evaluation is up in the air at the moment.

"It’ll be interesting to see how teams project Sean Davis at the next level," he wrote. "I have him as a late round safety but I’m told some scouts feel he can line-up at cornerback." As a matter of fact, Pauline only grades Davis as a seventh-rounder at the moment. Terrapins head coach Randy Edsall submitted Davis' information to the NFL Draft Advisory Board over the winter, but he decided to return to school.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that NFL scouts have marked Maryland junior DE Quinton Jefferson "as a junior to watch."

In other words, they have no idea what to make of him yet, but have seen enough to be intrigued. "Off the 2013 film I ranked Jefferson as a 5th rounder with the arrow pointing north," Pauline wrote. "Jefferson played three games in 2014 before suffering a season ending knee injury." That injury allowed Jefferson to take a medical redshirt.

Former Oklahoma State QB Daxx Garman has been granted immediate eligibility to play for Maryland in 2015.

Garman will be a part of the quarterback competition. Maryland fans hope their quarterback woes from a few seasons ago are behind them. Garman produced a few solid games while starting for the Cowboys.

Maryland junior CB William Likely's "NFL stock will be hampered by his size, but I promise that you will see Likely's No. 4 jersey all over your screen throughout the afternoon when watching Maryland," observes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 5-foot-7, 175-pounder posted six interceptions (two for touchdowns) and 83 tackles and averaged 11.1 yards per punt return (one touchdown) and 31 yards per kick return (another touchdown). "Desire and tenacity fuel Likely's fire and make him an outstanding all-around talent," Zierlein wrote. "He's quicker than fast as a cornerback, but has exceptional instincts and ball skills and uses his waterbug burst to jump passes anywhere near him." Zierlein ranks Likely as the No. 7 defensive back in the nation. "Likely is one of the top kick returners in the nation and also has 17 special-teams tackles to his credit," Zierlein wrote. Likely made the 2015 Phil Steele Preseason All-Big Ten First Team (defense) and Third Team (special teams).

Former Maryland sophomore WR Juwann Winfree is scheduled to visit Pittsburgh on July 20.

"He may visit other schools, but he has no current plans to do so and hopes to enroll somewhere in time for the fall semester," according beat writer Jerry Paola. Winfree withdrew from Maryland after learning of his suspension, his second since the start of the 2014 season.

Maryland junior OLB/DE Yannick Ngakoue "is a classic 'tweener with the burst to challenge tackle's reach," CBS Sports' Rob Rang observes.

"Ngakoue is a classic 'tweener with the burst to challenge tackle's reach but only average flexibility and closing speed while running the arc. Ngakoue has a powerful hand slap and good lateral agility to keep opponents from latching on. Unfortunately, he isn't yet powerful enough to rip free quickly when they do and doesn't possess ideal length to project great improvement in this area," Rang wrote. Ngakoue earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors from the media last season, posting 37 tackles, with 13.5 tackles for loss and six sacks on his 2014 resume. With the Terrapins switching to a 4-3 defense this year, the Maryland prospect could have a huge year as a defensive end.
