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.
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.
