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.

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.
Apr 8 - 1:01 AM

Maryland DT Darius Kilgo visited the Packers and Dolphins and will visit the Bengals, according to Aaron Wilson.

He will participate in the Panthers' "local prospect day" and has met with the Patriots. The Bengals and Packers are in the market for a nose tackle or 1 technique. Kilgo fits the bill, as he is best when defending the run with power. He should be a third day selection.
Apr 4 - 8:05 AM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs met with the New England Patriots after his pro day, according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs has the potential to be a weapon in the slot and contribute as a returner in the NFL. The biggest knock on the Maryland prospect is that Diggs has some durability concerns. Diggs dealt with season ending injuries the last two years in a row, with a broken leg and lacerated kidney.
Apr 2 - 5:17 PM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs has been dubbed "Playmaker's 2015 sleeper favorite."

Football Outsiders' Playmaker Score ranks Diggs as the No. 10 receiver, ahead of far more heralded prospects like Devin Funchess, Phillip Dorsett and Dorial Green-Beckham. The model apparently gave Diggs much credit for his huge freshman campaign -- when he caught 54 passes for 848 yards and six touchdowns while also rushing for 114 yards on 20 attempts -- while Maryland attempted only 304 passes due to playing three freshman quarterbacks. "He is regarded as only a mid- to late-round prospect by conventional wisdom because his sophomore and junior years were marred by injury and inconsistency," wrote FO's Nathan Forster. "It's true that these injury concerns could return to haunt Diggs' professional career, but at a low price, the upside that Diggs teased as a freshman is well worth the gamble." Playmaker compares the former five-star recruit to Antonio Brown and Az-Zahir Hakim.
Mar 30 - 1:58 AM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is scheduled to visit the 49ers in early April, according to Aaron Wilson.

Diggs received a lot of attention early in his Maryland career, but a serious leg injury in 2013 and a disappointing 2014 has stalled that buzz. This might surprise you, but Diggs tested like a below average athlete for his size. He is a straight-line role player in the NFL, and will likely be selected on the third day.
Mar 24 - 10:32 AM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs has a scheduled a visit with the San Francisco 49ers in April, according to the Baltimore Suns' Aaron Wilson.

The 49ers are looking to add some depth to their receiver corps, with the departure of WR Michael Crabtree and Stevie Johnson, San Francisco recently signed former Raven and former Terrapins' WR Torrey Smith. The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs has the potential to play in the slot and contribute as a returner at the next level. However, Diggs has some durability concerns as he dealt with injuries over the last two seasons.
Mar 23 - 4:02 PM

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs is "a potential first-rounder" on "his best tape," according to ESPN's Mel Kiper.

"But Diggs has been dogged by injuries over his time at Maryland," Kiper wrote. "But teams will see that good tape, and he could land here." The 6-foot, 195-pound Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine. We see him as almost exclusively a straight-line player, like a poor man's Ted Ginn Jr.

Maryland WR Stefon Diggs recorded forty times of 4.46 and 4.50 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

A decent -- but not breathtaking -- showing by the 6-foot, 195-pounder, especially since he is almost exclusively a straight-line player, like a poor man's Ted Ginn Jr. Diggs made a mistake in leaving school early. We'll let TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline explain why: "Most [NFL teams] grade Diggs as a last day pick and feel another season on the college field would’ve potentially pushed him into the draft’s initial 75 selections."
Feb 21 - 10:16 PM

Maryland is seeking a medical redshirt for redshirt junior QB Caleb Rowe.

Rowe tore an ACL during an October practice and missed the remainder of the season. He only appeared in four 2014 games, none after mid-season, which gives the Terps' Rowe a decent chance of winning a waiver. If given the medical redshirt, Rowe will be eligible through 2016. If rejected, 2015 will be his last collegiate season. Rowe will take over for C.J. Brown as the undisputed starter next season.
Feb 8 - 8:36 PM

Maryland senior WR Deon Long caught four passes for 29 yards in Saturday's East-West Shrine Classic.

Long had been drawing rave reviews all week for his work in practice, with both NFL Media analyst Charles Davis and TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline saying that he might have been the most impressive wide receiver they saw over the last week. In 2014, the 6-foot, 185-pound Long caught 51 passes for 575 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers aren't exactly eye-popping, but as a prospect, Long is quick off the catch and has shown an ability to haul in contested balls. It will be interesting to see how Long grades out individually now that he's no longer playing second-fiddle to teammate Stefon Diggs.
