Representatives from 24 NFL teams — including defensive backs coaches from the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers — were present to watch eight Terrapins players work out outdoors on FieldTurf on a sunny, 60-degree day in College Park, Md. on April 8.
Dexter McDougle, CB (5-foot-10 1/4, 196 pounds) — McDougle ran the 40-yard dash three times, doing so in 4.53, 4.47 and 4.51 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.18 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.84 seconds. Like at the NFL Scouting Combine, a shoulder injury prevented McDougle from doing the bench press. He looked very good on the positional workout, which was conducted by the defensive backs coach from the Giants. McDougle — who is a probable third-round draft choice — just returned this morning on a red-eye flight following a visit with the Oakland Raiders.
Marcus Whitfield, OLB (6-2 5/8, 234) — Whitfield ran the 40 in 4.66 and 4.72 seconds. He had a 33-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-5 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.34 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.42 seconds. Whitfield, who has 34-inch arms, performed 18 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Whitfield might be a priority free-agent pickup following the conclusion of the draft.
