Draft Scout Stefon Diggs News
07/30/14 - Maryland's NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. WR Stefon Diggs, Junior...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. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
07/30/14 - Maryland's NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 1. WR Stefon Diggs, Junior...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. Diggs has easy acceleration and is a home run threat any time he touches the ball with excellent quickness in his cuts and speed to finish. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/13/13 - 2013 ALL-ACC HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): WR-Stefon Diggs, So., Maryland (8)...Before suffering a season-ending injury against Wake Forest on Oct. 19, Diggs ranked as one of the top wide receivers in the league. Through seven games, Diggs averaged 83.9 receiving yards a game, which would rank fifth in the conference if eligible, and 17.3 yards per catch. He totaled two 100-yard receiving games this season including a career-high 179 yards receiving against Old Dominion (Sept. 7). - Maryland football
12/04/13 - 2013 ALL-ACC HONORABLE MENTION (MEDIA): Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland (21)...Before suffering a season-ending injury against Wake Forest on Oct. 19, Diggs ranked as one of the top wide receivers in the league. Through seven games, Diggs averaged 83.9 receiving yards a game, which would rank fourth in the conference if eligible, and 17.3 yards per catch.

10/20/13 - Maryland WRs Stefon Diggs, Deon Long both out for season...Losing 34-10 to Wake Forest would have been bad enough for Randy Edsall and Maryland . But the Terps' trip to Winston-Salem proved even worse than that. Edsall confirmed after the game that both of his leading two receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, had broken their legs during the game and would require season-ending surgery. Long broke both the tibia and the fibula in his right leg, with Diggs breaking his right fibula later in the game. "It's unfortunate," Edsall said, per the Washington Post. "I feel bad for both those guys. We got to make sure we move forward."
Though seven games, the pair had combined for 66 receptions for 1,076 yards -- totals representing just over 50 percent of the Maryland's team receptions and just under 54 percent of its receiving yards. Diggs -- a preseason all-purpose All-American -- also ranked ninth in the ACC in receiving with his 587 yards. The timing for Edsall and the Terps could not be worse; after their promising 4-0 start, Maryland has been outscored 123-37 and gone 1-2 over their past three games, and now the Terps host a wounded No. 9 Clemson this Saturday. After the plague of injuries suffered by Maryland's quarterbacks in 2012, Edsall could have been forgiven for hoping for better luck on the injury front in 2013. But it looks like he'll keep have to hoping into 2014. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
