Looking for a late round speedster Earthlings? So am I. With my alien sixth sense I found this guy from Maryland, Stefon Diggs, a bit of a day 3 seeper that might help the Dolphins stretch the field. After the Dolphins parted ways with Mike Wallace, the Dolphins may look to add a young speedster. I propose Stefon Diggs as the replacement.
When the ball is in Diggs’ hands its magic. Zoooooooooooooooooooooom! Diggs can fly. Now he didn’t turn heads per se at the combine. He ran a 4.46 which is fast but not exactly Mike Wallace combine numbers…is that what you want now? Watch Diggs and see how quickly he accelerates. Watch his balance as he accelerates. That is, if he doesn’t flash right by you… This 6’0, 190 pound wide out from Maryland had 150 catches in three years at Maryland. He gained over 2200 receiving yards and scored 14 TDs. In addition to a receiving threat, Diggs can return kicks returning 2 for TDs in his time with Maryland.
So why is this speedster a day 3 pick? I don’t know….but the fact is sleepers happen, and you have to be on a lookout for them to have it happen to you. Diggs isn’t one of the big red zone threats that are going to go early in the first two days of the draft, so that might hurt his stock too. And he struggled with injuries during his college career – but what do you expect a sleeper to be?
If Stefon Diggs was an alien weapon of destruction he would be a organism seeking missile streaking across the galaxy! Zoooooooooooooooooooooooooom! Better hope the Dolphins are the team shooting the missile!
