Battle at right guard will be on display in scrimmage

Maryland will run 40 to 50 plays in today’s scrimmage. Coach Ralph Friedgen will have his eye on a few things in particular as the Terrapins enter their second week of training camp after an off day.

1) The battle at right guard: Friedgen says he feels pretty good about the rest of the offensive line, which is the major question mark offensively heading into the season. Sophomores Bennett Fulper and Justin Lewis are engaged in a very competitive battle at the right guard position. We’ll see who takes the lead today.

2) Cornerback: Junior Cameron Chism is out for a week or so with a hamstring injury, so Friedgen gets to evaluate the depth he has at the position today. At the other cornerback slot, junior Trenton Hughes and redshirt freshman Dexter McDougle will see opportunities to impress. Cornerback is an area of concern defensively.

3) Kicker Nick Ferrara: After a strong performance as a freshman last season, Ferrara has been inconsistent in training camp, Friedgen said. Another problem is that too many kicks are getting blocked. Special teams should be a strength for Maryland. Special teams needs to be a strength for Maryland.
