Five Terps Join NFL Teams
The Green Bay Packers drafted Wide receiver Kevin Dorsey in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft this past Saturday. Dorsey started every game last season and he had 18 receptions for 311 yards and 4 TD's.
Tight end Matt Furstenburg signed with the World Champion Baltimore Ravens.
Furstenburg caught 16 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns last season.
Defensive lineman A.J. Francis signed with the Miami Dolphins. Francis, a four-year starter and three-time Academic All-ACC, recorded 149 total tackles and 9.5 sacks in his career.
Defensive lineman Joe Vellano signed with the New England Patriots. Vellano was a three-time All-ACC averaged 1.17 tackles for loss per game last season, had 12.5 sacks for his career and was a tireless worker on the Terps defense.
I will always remember this play Vellano made against Miami in the 2011 season opener. Vellano recovered this fumble and scored a touchdown. It was my first game on the sidelines taking photographs for Inside Maryland Sports
