Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Easy acceleration and is a home run threat any time he touches the ball with excellent quickness in his cuts and speed to finish.

WEAKNESSES: While athletic, he has a thin frame and lean muscle tone with limited growth potential to get much bigger or stronger than he is now. Diggs is still developing as a route-runner with a bad habit of rounding off routes and while he can explode out of his breaks, he isn't overly fluid with some straight-line tendencies, reminding me of former Ohio State receiver Ted Ginn.

He appears disinterested as a blocker too often on tape and an opposing coach pointed out to me the poor body language that Diggs tends to show on the field. Those concerns along with the fact that he is returning from a broken left fibula, and Diggs has a lot of room to improve as a junior before he's ready for the NFL level.

COMPARES TO: Ted Ginn, Cardinals.

Player Overview

A former five-star wide receiver recruit from Gaithersburg, Maryland, Diggs spurned offers from Ohio State, Florida and dozens of others so he could stay close to home and play for the Terrapins.

He made an instant impact in College Park as a freshman with 1,896 all-purpose yards, which is the second-best season total in school history. Diggs was off to a productive sophomore season with 34 catches for 587 yards (17.3 average) before a leg injury prematurely ended his 2013 campaign. He returns as the top playmaker for the Maryland offense in 2014 and is arguably among the top skill players in the Big Ten along with Wisconsin's Melvin Gordon and a few others.

10/21/2014 - Will Likely returned an interception 45 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown, and Maryland rallied from an early 14-point deficit to beat Iowa 38-31 Saturday for its first Big Ten home victory. The Terrapins (5-2, 2-1) scored 24 straight points after falling behind by two touchdowns with 8?? minutes elapsed. It was 24-21 before Likely picked off a Jake Rudock pass and sprinted untouched into the end zone with 12:29 left. Stefon Diggs caught nine passes for 130 yards and a touchdown for Maryland, playing its first season in the Big Ten after leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Terps are now 1-1 at home in league play after losing 52-24 to Ohio State two weeks ago.

Iowa (5-2, 2-1) committed three turnovers, sputtered offensively after its quick start and had its three-game winning streak end. Rudock went 32 for 56 for 317 yards and two touchdowns, and Mark Weisman ran for 78 yards and two touchdowns. Maryland starting quarterback C.J. Brown was temporarily knocked out of the game in the third quarter after taking a hard hit to the upper body. Backup Caleb Rowe wasn't available after tearing his left ACL in practice on Tuesday - an injury announced by Maryland on Saturday. - AP Sports
