The Carolina Panthers drafted former Maryland football linebacker Jermaine Carter in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft on Saturday.
Carter was the second Terp selected by the Panthers, who also took wide receiver DJ Moore with the No. 24 pick in the first round Thursday.
Carter started all 37 games for Maryland in the past three seasons and led the Terps in tackling in each of those years.
The Fort Washington native spent five years at Maryland, redshirting in 2013 after graduating as a three-star recruit from Friendship Collegiate Academy.
Carter is the first Maryland linebacker drafted since Moise Fokou was a seventh-round pick in 2009.
After not having any players selected in the 2017 draft, this is the second time in three years Maryland has had two players selected in the first five rounds.
The last time one team picked multiple Maryland players was the 1991 draft, when the New England Patriots selected quarterback Scott Zolak in the fourth round and offensive guard O’Neil Glenn in the ninth round.
CORRECTION: Due to a reporting error, a previous version of this article stated the last time one team drafted multiple Maryland players was 1989. New England selected two Maryland players in 1991. This article has been updated.
