With the 18th pick in the seventh round of last month's NFL draft, the first - and only - Maryland football player went off the board. Kevin Dorsey , whose long wait ended two Saturdays ago with a call from the Green Bay Packers, is set to take part in his first rookie minicamp later this week. Dorsey, a Forestville grad, was a consensus four-star recruit for the Terps in 2008. He bided his time behind Torrey Smith and other veteran receivers before breaking out as a junior with 45 catches for 573 yards and three touchdowns in 2011.

The Green Bay Packers signed former Maryland wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to their active roster Monday. Dorsey, who was selected by the Packers in the seventh round of last year's draft, spent the first five weeks of this season on Green Bay's practice squad after spending last year on the team's injured reserve because of a toe injury. Dorsey, who had five catches for 52 yards for Green Bay during the preseason, only had 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns as a senior at Maryland in 2013.

After catching 45 passes last season, senior Kevin Dorsey entered this year as Maryland's No. 1 receiver. Through three games, Dorsey has three catches for 26 yards. Tight end Matt Furstenburg , who was voted by the media to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference preseason team, has three catches for 33 yards. Terps coach Randy Edsall said Tuesday that the pair's scarcity of early-season catches is partly a function of Maryland spreading the ball around to a number of players.

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Before Maryland's nightmarish 2011 football season came to an end, wide receiver Kevin Dorsey already knew changes were afoot. Many of his teammates were about to flee for other college programs, and Dorsey wasn't too surprised to see the exodus. After ther Terps ' 2-10 campaign, he watched 13 players choose to transfer, including quarterbackDanny O'Brien to Wisconsin, left tackle R.J. Dill to Rutgers and right tackle Max Garcia to Florida. In the midst of the exit process for several of the players, Dorsey offered the kind of simple advice he thought was appropriate - make up your mind and live with your decision.

The Maryland football team might be without another one of its captains in Saturday's season finale at North Carolina. Defensive tackle Joe Vellano has been listed as doubtful on Maryland's injury report. The fifth-year senior is battling an ankle injury. If Vellano misses Saturday's game, he will be the third Terps captain sidelined, joining quarterback C.J. Brown (ACL) and linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield (ACL). Senior wide receiver Kevin Dorsey, who is healthy, is Maryland's fourth captain.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and editor Matt Bracken weigh in on the three biggest topics of the past week in Maryland  sports. How would you evaluate Maryland football's senior class that will appear in its last home game on Saturday? Jeff Barker: This year's outgoing class possessed good talent, particularly on defense. There was Joe Vellano, A.J. Francis, Demetrius Hartsfield, Kenneth Tate, Justin Gilbert and Kevin Dorsey, among others. But it's hard not to feel for this class a bit. It just didn't end right for these guys.

This is not at all how Maryland hoped to send off its 17 seniors - mired in a four-game losing streak and trying to make a final stand in a season characterized by injuries and two particularly wrenching losses. After Maryland went 2-10 last season, senior starters Joe Vellano, A.J. Francis , Kenneth Tate, Kevin Dorsey and others imagined that their final seasons would coincide with a turnaround performance punctuated by a bowl game. But if college is partly about learning life lessons, then this year's was that things don't always go as expected.

Maryland receiver Stefon Diggs and running back Wes Brown attended the same high school (Good Counsel) and have a friendly rivalry. On Saturday against Connecticut, Diggs accumulated 223 all-purpose yards - the freshman's best output of the season. Diggs also scored his first collegiate touchdown on a tipped ball. But Brown, also a true freshman, bested Diggs by scoring a touchdown before his former high school teammate. Brown, who had 74 yards on 14 carries after fumbling twice last week, scored on a 19-yard run in the second quarter.

COLLEGE PARK — Maryland's two punt blocks on Saturday were the team's third and fourth of the season, doubling last season's total. More than that, the blocks continued a streak. The Terps have now blocked 16 punts to their opponents' zero over a span that covers 129 games. Maryland's special-teams players include an unusually large number of wide receivers. "We have seven or eight wide receivers in there," said special teams coach Charles Bankins. The list includes LaQuan Williams (Poly)

For nearly three quarters Saturday at BB&T Field, a young and undermanned Maryland defense kept the Terrapins from continuing their two-month freefall. And, for a few seconds at the end of the first half against Wake Forest, the offense seemed to come to life, too. It didn't last. The defense got tired and the offense made a crucial mistake — an illegal shift penalty against junior wide receiver Kevin Dorsey that negated what would have been a 17-yard touchdown run by senior tailback Davin Meggett that could have put the Terps into the lead.
