Maryland WR Stefon Diggs to enter NFL Draft
Maryland wide receiver Stefon Diggs will enter this year's NFL Draft.
Maryland fans have seen the last of Stefon Diggs in a Terrapins uniform. The receiver told the Baltimore Sun's Matt Zenitz that he'll enter this spring's NFL Draft.
Just talked to Stefon Diggs, who told me that he has decided to forgo his final year at Maryland and enter the NFL draft— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) January 3, 2015
It's not that surprising of a decision, though earlier this week Diggs said he hadn't made up his mind.
Diggs missed three games for the Terps this season but still led the team with 62 receptions for 792 yards and five touchdowns. He's an explosive playmaker, but he has been injured each of the last two seasons, playing only seven games in 2013.
So when you consider that, it makes sense that Diggs would want to move on to the NFL rather than run the risk of getting hurt again in college.
Diggs is projected to be a mid-round pick.
