There has been a lot of buzz about some of our UDFA pickups, and for good reason- we got some players that a lot of us had thought a lot of prior to the draft. However, I am absolutely stunned that little-to-none of this chatter has been about Davin Meggett, who I believe will become the player from this UDFA class that we remember the most (for good reasons, at least. Dwight Jones may be remembered as well).

He runs with excellent pad level, and is not shy of getting hit. He falls forward when tackled, often gaining an extra yard or two. I do worry about ball security, as he occasionally seems to struggle when switching the ball to the outside arm. He displays plus hands out of the backfield, and is a willing blocker, sometimes to a fault. I had a 5th round grade on him after the scouting season. Other: The son of former NFLer Dave Meggett, Davin Meggett has the bloodlines to make it in this league. And despite his fathers conviction and subsequent jail time, he seems very comfortable in his own skin and is poised when answering questions. Meggett served as team captain last year, and by all accounts seems like a great kid. His lack of production at the NCAA level is due to the multi-back system that Maryland employs, but I consider this to be a blessing, as it reduces the amount of wear and tear on his body. Projection: I think Meggett makes the roster out of camp by taking Wards spot on the roster, and I think he easily outstrips Wards production of 154 yards on 45 carries and 2 TDs. In an ideal world, Foster receives 275 carries, Tate receives another 175 and Meggett sees the rock around 50. This trio could easily total 2,500 yards next season.
