Stefon Diggs may have been left out the odds for the Heisman, but that doesn't mean his season-ending injury in 2013 has completely taken him out of the national spotlight. Diggs is still considered one of the top receivers in the nation, and via Bovada we have some projected numbers for this season.

Diggs's over/under for receiving yards has been set at 950.5, higher than Stanford's Ty Montgomery or Alabama's Amari Cooper. That number would be a career high for the junior wideout, who recorded 848 yards in 11 games as a freshman in 2011. His over/under for touchdowns is set at 6.5, which would also best his career-high of six as a freshman.

In terms of the Big Ten, Braxton Miller (unsurprisingly) gets the bulk of the attention. Diggs is up there as well, however, ranking third and fourth, respectively, in the odds at receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. The difference makes sense -- he's a shifty, speedy receiver but he's not exactly a big end-zone target, and Maryland has a deep enough receiving corps that the ball will be passed around friendly.
