Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle may be the only Terrapin to be selected in the 2014 NFL Draft, but he wasn’t the only player on the Maryland roster to make it to the next level.
Per Randy Edsall’s Twitter account, Maryland linebacker Marcus Whitfield and cornerback Issac Goins were signed as undrafted free agents by NFL teams. Whitfield signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars while Goins inked a deal with the Miami Dolphins.
Whitfield was second on the team with nine sacks (Andre Monroe had 9.5) to go along with 52 tackles (25 solo). The Germantown native only started seven games in his career prior to his senior campaign. He was a three-star linebacker out of Northwest High School and also played tight end at the high school level.
Goins started 11 games for Maryland after cornerbacks Jeremiah Johnson and McDougle each missed significant time due to injury. The California native recorded 60 tackles (45 solo) and had two interceptions. He’ll join former Terp A.J. Francis in Miami.
We’ll keep an eye on both situations as training camps and preseason games unfold this summer.
