Oklahoma State graduate QB Daxx Garman will play the 2015 season for Maryland.

Garman played a significant number of snaps in nine game last season after J.W. Walsh went down with an injury. During that time he completed 152-of-277 passes for 2041 yards, with 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Garman could absolutely compete for the starting gig with the Terps.

High school quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., the No. 25 prospect in the ESPN 300, committed to Maryland on Friday.

Haskins picked the Terrapins over a host of suitors including Penn State, Rutgers, Florida, Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. "To be honest it just felt right. At first, everyone knows I was an Ohio State fan and I definitely wanted to go there," he said. "I wanted to commit there at some point in my recruitment, but I decided to wait it out and after meeting all these coaches and getting to know people, I just felt like I could build a relationship with Coach Edsall." The four-star recruit is the No. 2 pocket passer in the class and a centerpiece of Edsall's future plans.

Titans signed Maryland WR Deon Long.

Long (6'0/192) spent two seasons as a Terp after transferring from JUCO, catching 83 passes for 1,064 yards (12.8 YPR) and three TDs. He ran 4.51 at the Combine with a 34-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Neither physically dominant nor explosive enough to win as a perimeter wideout in the NFL, Long is likely headed for the slot and has special teams value.

Giants signed Maryland ILB Cole Farrand.

Farrand (6'3/244) was a three-year starter at middle linebacker, leading the Terps in tackles as both a junior and senior. Although Farrand was a solid college player, he lacks NFL-caliber athleticism and the ability to run down ball carriers or match up in coverage. Farrand will have to make his big-league living on kickoff and punt coverage.
May 3 - 7:49 PM

Broncos selected Maryland DT Darius Kilgo with the No. 203 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Kilgo (6'4/320) made 36 starts for Maryland, collecting 19.5 career tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and six fumble recoveries. He pumped 33 reps on the bench at his Pro Day, also running forty times of 5.13 and 5.20. Kilgo projects as a one or "zero" technique nose with some ability to push the pocket and hold the point of attack.
May 2 - 4:39 PM

Vikings selected Maryland WR Stefon Diggs with the No. 146 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Diggs (6'0/195) was a five-star recruit out of high school, but endured a disappointing and injury-plagued college career. He posted 2,227 yards and 14 TDs on 150 catches (14.8 YPR), missing time due to a suspension, lacerated kidney, and fractured leg. Diggs clocked 4.46 at the Combine, but disappointed in the vertical (35") and broad (9'7") jumps. Diggs will have to earn his NFL keep as a sub-package receiver and on special teams, where he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in college.
May 2 - 2:14 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay believes Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "is a potential Day 2 pick because he is exceptional in one important trait -- the ability to create with the ball in his hands."

"He is a twitched-up wide receiver with really impressive stop-start ability and lateral agility, and while he doesn't have elite top-end speed, he is above average in this area and does possess elite initial burst (just a 4.46 40-yard dash, but an excellent 1.53-second 10-yard split)," McShay wrote. "He almost always makes the first defender miss either after the catch or as a returner (which might end up being his best role in the pros), and he can string together multiple moves with the ball in his hands." The analyst clarifies that Diggs "isn't likely to go in the first two rounds" because of his size and health concerns, but calls him a "big-time playmaker in the open field" who could be a potential steal. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs was called the "sleeper favorite" of Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score metric.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "has the skills to be a productive NFL receiver" despite a lackluster collegiate career, notes CBS Sports' Pete Prisco.

"He is also a capable return man," Prisco wrote. "A team using a mid-round pick on him might end up with a steal. The talent is there." The analyst is far from the only person who thinks so, which is why it's basically impossible to peg where Diggs will go in the draft. Diggs was dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Apr 22 - 8:00 PM

Maryland DT Darius Kilgo has visited the Buffalo Bills, Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers and Miami Dolphins, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Kilgo also met with the New England Patriots prior to the Terps' Pro Day workout. He completed 33 reps on the bench at that event. Kilgo's other testing times (5.19 second 40, 7.6 second 3-cone) were mediocre, but he "looked terrific in position drills," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline. The 6-foot-2, 313-pounder posted 31 tackles, eight for losses and two sacks last season.
Apr 19 - 8:35 PM

ESPN's Todd McShay is concerned about Maryland WR Stefon Diggs's durability, but writes that there's "a lot to like about his game."

"He is special with the ball in his hands, with impressive stop-start ability, lateral agility, shiftiness in the open field and the top-end speed to hit the home run when he catches a crease," McShay wrote. "He's a zone-buster who can locate soft spots underneath but also threaten vertically with his speed. He's a very good return specialist as well." Diggs is a former stud recruit coming off an up-and-down college career who was dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Apr 16 - 9:21 PM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is scheduled to visit the Dolphins, according to Aaron Wilson.

Diggs also visited the 49ers and has met with the Patriots. It was a somewhat rocky career for Diggs, who flashed plenty of promise as a freshman until a major leg injury derailed his sophomore campaign. It seems the NFL still views Diggs as an intriguing slot receiver. His biggest contribution could come on returns early on.
Apr 9 - 10:07 AM

Maryland WR Deon Long ran disappointing forties of 4.67 seconds (against the wind) and 4.58 seconds (with the wind) at his pro day workout.

Long "struggled in catching the ball later in drills and had a number of drops," Tony Pauline added. The prospect's good week at the East-West Shrine Classic should ensure a draft pick, though we can report analysts essentially haven't discussed Stefon Diggs' former running mate since then.
Apr 8 - 9:47 PM

Maryland DT Darius Kilgo completed 33 reps on the bench at his pro day workout.

This was scouts' opportunities to dissect Kilgo, as the prospect was snubbed from the combine. Measuring 6-foot-2 7/8, 313 pounds, Kilgo had mediocre testing times (5.19 second 40, 7.6 second 3-cone) but "looked terrific in position drills," according to Pauline. We think Kilgo is going on Day 3.
Apr 8 - 8:33 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Maryland OLB Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil "looked smooth and explosive in drills" at his pro day.

Cudjoe-Virgi didn't work out at the combine due to a patella injury. He clocked between 4.74 seconds and 4.88 seconds in the forty, had a 30 inch vertical jump, a 9-10 broad jump and posted 27 reps on the bench. Cudjoe-Virgil added a short shuttle of 4.25 seconds and a 3-cone time of 7.23 seconds.
Apr 8 - 3:11 PM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs "ran scissor-sharp routes and caught the ball very well" at his pro day, according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

In the days surrounding the event, Diggs met with the New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. Standing on his forty time, Diggs timed 4.11 seconds in the short shuttle, besting his combine time by almost two-tenths of a second. Diggs was recently dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite" by Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score.
