The 2021 NFL Drafted ended with just one Maryland football player hearing his name called.

The Los Angeles Rams selected Jake Funk in the seventh round, No. 233 overall.

This is a quiet year for Terps looking to go to join the NFL as just four players participated in the 2021 Maryland Pro Day. DJ Turner who played with the Terps before transferring to Pitt for his grad year also has hopes of joining the NFL.

Here is the list of names of the players with ties to the University of Maryland who hope to sign with NFL organizations over the next three days.
