The Terps' junior receiver, fresh off a terrific combine workout, continued to impress next-level decision makers today at Maryland's pro day.

Fast-rising receiver D.J. Moore stood on his combine numbers but did position drills and looked very good, running crisp routes and catching the ball well.

The workout was run by Norv Turner of the Carolina Panthers, and the team has a private workout scheduled with Moore. Moore will also be working out with the Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys later this week. He is making an official predraft trip to see the ‘Boys in the beginning of April. The Philadelphia Eagles will be working out Moore next week.

Cornerback JC Jackson looked solid in position drills. His workout was run by the New England Patriots.

Linebacker Jermaine Carter, who was graded as a potential late-round pick entering the season, ran much faster than anticipated. Carter measured 6-foot-1 and 222 pounds and timed as fast as 4.69 in the 40, a full tenth faster than expected. He also touched 34.5 inches in the vertical jump.

Carter has four official predraft visits scheduled with the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs. He was also interviewed by linebackers coaches from the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants.

Defensive tackle Kingsley Opara, stamped as a priority free agent, measured 6-foot-3 and 297 pounds and completed 31 reps on the bench. He then hit 36.5 inches in the vertical jump and 9-foot-7 in the broad jump before pulling a hamstring on his first 40.

Opara, who’s garnering interest from the Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins, participated in position drills despite the hamstring issue and looked good.
