After getting off to a hot start in 2013, the Maryland Terrapins went on a downslide after they were routed by the eventual national champion Florida State Seminoles. Part of the reason they went even further downhill after that game was because they were without their top two wide receivers, Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, and according to head coach Randy Edsall, the two won’t be ready for spring practices neither.

As a true freshman in 2012, Diggs was one of the most prolific players in the nation, and he was on his way to another stellar year in 2013 before the unfortunate injury. In seven games, he had close to 600 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
Maryland will be looking to make a big impact in 2014, as this will be their first season as a member of the Big Ten, and they will no doubt need both Diggs and Long on the field to make that impact as big as it could possibly be.
