This probably won't come as a surprise for those who paid attention to Maryland's unusual football 4-8 season a year ago, but the lasting impression far, far from College Park is that wide receiver Stefon Diggs is pretty good.
As for the rest of the roster, there might not be quite as much faith.
A spin through the all-conference teams in four publications --- Athlon, Lindy's and the Sporting News in print form, Phil Steele in an online version --- reveals a general consensus that Diggs will be among the best receivers in the ACC, as well as one of the top kickoff returners.
And everyone else? There's a Cole Farrand mention here and a Brandon Ross mention there. But not much else.
The rundown, on both an individual and team scale:
WR STEFON DIGGS
* First-team all-ACC wide receiver (Athlon, Sporting News, Phil Steele)
* First-team all-ACC all-purpose (Lindy's)
* Second-team all-ACC kickoff returner (Athlon, Phil Steele)
* Second-team all-ACC wide receiver (Lindy's)
RB BRANDON ROSS
* Third-team all-ACC running back (Lindy's)
LB COLE FARRAND
* Second-team all-ACC linebacker (Lindy's)
WR DEON LONG
* Fourth-team all-ACC wide receiver (Phil Steele)
* Picked third in the Atlantic Division with a 7-5/4-4 projection and a No. 53 national ranking (Athlon)
* Picked third in the Atlantic Division with a No. 47 national ranking (Lindy's)
* Picked fourth in the Atlantic Division with no projected bowl bid
