When former Maryland star Shawne Merriman watched the Seattle Seahawks play the Green Bay Packers earlier this month, he saw a Seahawks offense that found different, creative ways to get the ball in the hands of their top playmaker -- wide receiver Percy Harvin. The Seahawks lined Harvin up in the backfield, used Harvin as a traditional wide receiver and also put him in motion and handed him the ball on jet sweeps. In all, Harvin touched the ball 11 times. Merriman said he wants to see the Terps do more of those types of things to get the ball in the hands of wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland star receiver Stefon Diggs was relegated to working with the second-team offense for most of the second half of preseason practice, and coach Randy Edsall made clear he would remain with the second team until he improved. Edsall was trying to motivate Diggs, and it worked. "The good thing is with Stefon, I did something there, and it motivated him and it got him back on track, and sometimes you have to do that," Edsall said. "You all have kids. You know how it is. You've got to do the same thing.

COLLEGE PARK -- Maryland star wide receiver Stefon Diggs scored two touchdowns during the Terps' final scrimmage of preseason practice Wednesday. One was on a catch in the back of the end zone. The other was on a short pass that Diggs turned into a touchdown of around 80 yards by making several defenders miss in the open field and then outrunning two defenders to the end zone. Here is a look at that touchdown . mzenitz@tribune.com twitter.com/mzenitz

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland's practice Wednesday did not produce the same amount of noteworthy plays that the second practice of Tuesday did. But there were some good moments for both the offense and the defense. Of note, star wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long each had probably their best practices of the preseason. Long had a 25-yard catch over cornerback Jeremiah Johnson early in practice and looked good throughout the session. So did Diggs, who had several catches, including a sliding catch during team drills and some short passes that he turned into bigger gains later on. Wide receiver Levern Jacobs also continues to stand out. Jacobs, who is part of the group competing for the Terrapins' No. 3 receiver job, has been praised several times by coach Randy Edsall during the past few days and had some good plays Wednesday.

CBSSports.com NFL draft analyst Dane Brugler spent part of last week watching Maryland game tape from last season. He wanted to get a more extensive look at Stefon Diggs, the Terps' dynamic junior wide receiver and kick returner who many pundits feel could be an early-round pick in next year's draft. But Brugler said the Terps do have other players besides Diggs who are already on the radar of analysts and NFL teams for the 2015 NFL draft. In particular, Brugler focused on 6-foot-3, 320-pound nose tackle Darius Kilgo.

The Big Ten has named Maryland junior wide receiver Stefon Diggs one of 10 players to watch heading into this season. Unlike other conferences, the Big Ten no longer selects a preseason all-conference team or preseason Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year. Instead, the conference selects 10 Players to Watch, five from the East Division and five from the West Division. Diggs, who was one of the five for the East, missed the second half of last season after breaking his leg, but he ranked eighth nationally in all-purpose yards as a freshman in 2012 and had 34 catches for 587 yards and three touchdowns in seven games last year.

CHICAGO -- Stefon Diggs has typically been out on the practice field with Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown at least once a week leading up to preseason practice. He has been running routes, stretching his legs and continuing to work his way back from the broken his right fibula  that ended his season just seven games into last year. And while the leg may have prevented him from taking part in the majority of spring practice, the junior wide receiver said Monday at the Big Ten media days that it's no longer an issue.

Baseball Nationals sign 1st-round pick but not 2nd-rounder The Washington Nationals signed first-round draft pick Erick Fedde with a bonus worth just over $2.5 million, a deal that softened the blow from the club's inability to sign its second-round pick. Fedde, the 18th pick overall, settled on rough terms with the Nationals on Friday around 2 p.m., three hours before the 5 p.m. deadline. A right-handed pitcher from Nevada-Las Vegas, Fedde played on the same high school team as Bryce Harper , who said Fedde has "the best slider I've ever seen.

Maryland junior wide receiver Stefon Diggs was named to one final watch list before watch list season came to a close.  The watch list for the Walter Camp Award was released Friday.
