Draft insider Tony Pauline reports Boston College QB Chase Rettig will work out for the Falcons.
The workout will take place on Friday. Rettig is nothing more than a seventh-round or undrafted free agent quarterback, as he failed to improve during his time in college. This could be a nice gesture from a team whose starting quarterback also attended Boston College. Thu, Mar 27, 2014 11:31:00 AM

Boston College senior QB Chase Rettig completed 22 of 29 attempts for 279 yards and two touchdowns.

Rettig is the long time starter for the Eagles and flashes borderline NFL talent. The quarterback looks fine on short to intermediate levels, hitting open receivers with timing, but he struggles in the face of pressure, as do many. We look forward to seeing him versus better competition.
Sat, Aug 31, 2013 03:15:00 PM's Mike Huguenin writes that Boston College senior QB Chase Rettig "has good size, a good arm and a quick delivery."

Rettig must work on his accuracy and pocket presence, according to Huguenin. The four-year starter was sacked 36 times last season. "At times, he simply holds onto the ball too long," according to Huguenin. Rettig (6-feet-3, 206 pounds) threw for 3,060 yards with a 17/13 TD/INT ratio last season and has thrown for 6,258 yards with a 35/31 TD/INT ratio and a 53.4 percent completion rate over his career. He will study under his fifth different offensive coordinator (Ryan Day) at Boston College this upcoming season. Day is expected to deploy a run-heavy scheme with spread elements.

Boston College senior QB Chase Rettig will work under his fifth offensive coordinator in the last 3.5 years in 2013.

"Every spring ball is like freshman year," Rettig told reporters. The comment is noteworthy, as Rettig showed promise and potential early in his career, but has failed to reach it since. There hasn't been a tremendous amount of improvement in areas like touchdown to interception ratio, however, Rettig should get a look from NFL teams.

Boston College senior QB Chase Rettig has a career completion percentage of 53.4.

"Rettig has improved his footwork in the pocket to step up and avoid pressure, but he is a limited athlete and his lower half is too inconsistent in his throwing motion," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler writes. "He has a bad habit of staring down his targets and not effectively using his eyes to hold defenders with questionable field vision, struggling to see all 11 defenders." We were impressed with Rettig at times, but he's closer to a late third day prospect at this time.

Boston College is telling recruits that they expect to implement more spread or read-option calls on offense starting in 2013.

This is a change for head coach Steve Addazio, who has a history of pounding the rock between the tackles with running backs who thrive on single cut, upfield games. Eagles quarterback CHase Rettig is not overly mobile, but he could do well in a quick read system. There are times where he holds the ball too long while in the pocket, however.

Boston College junior QB Chase Rettig completed 21-of-39 attempts for 287 yards and two touchdowns Saturday against Maryland.

Rettig was sacked a handful of times, which is an area he struggles with, but the junior is rarely discussed in the quarterback conversation. There are times when Rettig looks great, but he is known to make poor decisions, although he stayed away from mistakes today.

Another season of preparations at Boston College means another system for Chase Rettig.

Rettig had three offensive coordinators in his first two seasons at BC. With spring practice underway on Chestnut Hill, he is preparing under a fourth: former Kent State coach Doug Martin. Rettig, who returns along with a few experienced receivers, says the whole offense has changed and everybody is buying in. Rettig started all 12 games for the 4-8 Eagles last season and threw for 1,960 yards with 12 TDs and 9 picks.
