2022 Prospect Recap: Maryland Wins a Fun One over West Virginia

A fun offensive game between Maryland and West Virginia ended with the Terrapins on top 30-24.

Let’s look at the 2022 NFL Draft prospects from this game.

UMTerps

MARYLAND TERRAPINS

11   QB   Reece Udinski             Sr  6-4    224

The VMI transfer did not play.

3      QB   Taulia Tagovailoa    Jr   5-11 205

The younger brother of Tua moves well in the pocket. Tagovailoa has an above-average arm. He does have nice deep ball accuracy. The Terrapin QB completed 26 of 36 passes for 332 yards and three scores.

8      RB   Tayon Fleet-Davis    Sr  6-0    220

Fleet-Davis runs hard and has some shiftiness. He seems to lack that elite burst. TFD had 22 touches for 141 yards against West Virginia.

9      TE   Chigoziem Okonkwo     Sr       6-2       245

Okonkwo missed last season with a heart condition but was given a clean bill of health going forward. He is another h-back type who is a decent blocker. Okonkwo had three catches for 20 yards and a TD.

7      WR Dontay Demus, Jr.    Sr  6-3    217

Demus is a tremendous talent. He has elite speed and agility for a tall wide receiver. Demus is a true deep threat and a solid route runner. I believe he has the potential to end up in the first round conversation. Against WVU, Demus caught six of his nine targets for 133 yards. He also had a 66-yard TD catch where he beat the corner on a double move.

18   S       Jordan Mosley            Sr  6-1    210

Mosley has a solid range on the backend and is a crisp tackler. He notched five tackles (three solos) against the Mountaineers.

3      S       Nick Cross                     Jr   6-1    210

Cross is a big hitter and he finishes plays. He showed excellent range and playmaking abilities. Cross had seven solo tackles, forced a fumble, and picked off a pass. He is going to rise up my rankings.

WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS

55   DL  Dante Stills            6-2     280

I was really high on his brother Darius last year. Stills has tremendous pass rush upside. He racked up three tackles and one sack against Maryland.

95   DL  Jordan Jefferson 6-2     298

Jefferson was mostly a reserve in this one and saw limited action. He did share a TFL, however.

72   G     Doug Nester          6-5     327

Nester played right guard for the Mountaineers. He has a solid base and is strong. Nester uses his hands well. He opened up a few holes in the run game.

4      RB  Leddie Brown       5-11  210

Brown runs like he is a bowling ball yet is explosive. He is also a good receiver out of the backfield. Brown had 21 touches for 117 yards and three total touchdowns.

87   TE  Mike O’Laughlin 6-5     252

O’Laughlin was listed on the participation but I never saw him. He had zero targets.
