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.

--Dane Brugler (7/24/14)

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.

11/11/2014 - Report: Terps lose WR Diggs for season...This season is not ending like Maryland's preseason All-American wide receiver Stefon Diggs could have imagined. First, Diggs was suspended for Saturday's home game against Michigan State for his role in refusing a pregame handshake against Penn State on Nov. 1. To make matters worse, Diggs was injured in that game and now The Baltimore Sun reports Diggs will miss the rest of the season because of a lacerated kidney. The junior wideout leads Maryland with 52 receptions and 654 yards this year. He appeared to be hurt while stretching for a touchdown in a game won by the Terps. Diggs' 2013 season was cut short after seven games when he suffered a broken leg. Maryland did not play this past weekend. - The Sports Xchange
