College Football Preview: Best of the Rest: Maryland Terrapins

32. Maryland Terrapins
QB Danny O'Brien- Sophomore
RB Taylor Watson- Senior
WR Tony Logan- Senior
DT Joe Vellano- Junior
S Kenny Tate- Senior
Talent is still alive in Maryland, the best it has been in a few years 14 returning starters and many of those returners being stars. Sophomore Danny O'Brien begins his second year as starter and should improve despite losing electric wide out Torrey Smith. He has a good arm but isn't too flashy of a quarterback. Senior Jamarr Robinson isn't too good at throwing the ball but he is somewhat of a dual threat. Senior back Taylor Watson is good and a powerful option for the Terrapins. Haroon Brown and Davin Meggett are the other guys who are going to get carries now without Da'Rel Scott. The wide reciever core lost tons of talent now: gone is Smith, Adrian Cannon, LaQuan Williams and tight end Will Yeatman. But senior Tony Logan may be a bright spot. He doesn't make a lot of plays on the offensive side because he is more of a threat in the returning game. They're hoping for some plays from Kevin Dorsey and Ronnie Tyler. The offensive line is strong with Andrew Gonnella, R.J. Dill and others. The defense is okay too but the front seven might need some tweaks to improve it. Tackle Joe Vellano is a beast up the middle and A.J. Francis can hit hard. The linebacker core is led by junior Demetrius Hartsfield, he's the only returner. Maybe Darin Drakeford can do something. The secondary is solid with seniors Trenton Hughes and Cameron Chism. The best player in the back is senior saftey Kenny Tate who's a ball hawk and hits hard. Special teams is pretty good especially with Logan but the loss of punter/kicker Travis Baltz will hurt.

Heisman Hopeful: Taylor Watson
ACC Rank: 5th
