No. 1 Reggie Diggs

Noticing a trend here? The Spiders have two of the more talented wideouts in the CAA in Brown and senior Reggie Diggs. Diggs has great size at 6’4/200 lbs. and can make any traffic in a crowded area. The Dendron, Va. native had 85 receptions for 1,157 yards and seven touchdowns during the 2014 season. Despite Brown averaging slightly more yards-per-catch, Diggs has phenomenal ability. The senior wideout has above-average leaping ability and really excels making catches right near the sidelines. In 2014, Strauss leaned on Diggs in this area quite a bit and it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise if Lauletta did the very same, especially in his first game as the full-time starter. Much like Brown, Maryland’s defense needs to know where Diggs is at all times.
