Maryland star wide receiver Stefon Diggs is scheduled to visit the Miami Dolphins, according to league sources.

Diggs has also visited the San Francisco 49ers and met with the New England Patriots.

The Dolphins could use an influx of talent at wide receiver after trading Mike Wallace to the Minnesota Vikings.

Diggs declared for the NFL draft after his junior season with the Terps. In his college career, he had 150 receptions for 2,227 yards and 14 touchdowns.

The former blue-chip recruit from Good Counsel ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds during the combine. Diggs' time was nearly as fast as New York Giants standout wide receiver Odell Beckham's 4.43 last year at the combine.

Diggs has been rated as a third-round draft target by analysts, but the fast time could boost his stock into second-round consideration.

Diggs led Maryland with 62 catches for 792 yards and five touchdowns last season and was named to the All-Big Ten Conference second team despite suffering a lacerated kidney that sidelined him for two games before he returned for a bowl game against Stanford.
