Boston College junior edge rusher Zach Allen will return for the 2018 season.

While the Eagles will be out one Mr. Harold Landry come the start of the 2018 season, partner in crime Allen will be bringing it all back home for one more run. He played fantastic ball during the 2017 season, registering 100 tackles (15.5 for loss), four sacks and three passes defended on the year and did not miss a game during the campaign. Once he does enter the draft pool following his final year in 2018, he's very likely to be in the Day 1 conversation.

Boston College redshirt junior QB Darius Wade will transfer.

Wade (6'0/201) was a three-star recruit coming out of high school, but never saw a real run at starter during his time with the Eagles. The redshirt junior ends his time at BC having put up 883 passing yards (54.9% completions) with a 4/3 TD/INT ratio for his career. Transferring as a graduate, he'll be eligible to play immediately with his new program come the start of the 2018 season.

Boston College redshirt junior TE Tommy Sweeney caught seven passes for 137 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 27-20 loss to Iowa in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Sweeney (6'5/258) hauled in a 39-yard touchdown pass in the opening minutes of the second quarter for his score on the frosty afternoon. The 137 yards receiving marked a season best for the redshirt junior, who had not previously topped 100 yards in a game this season. While he could potentially declare for the NFL Draft, now, and would be doing so as part of a relatively thin tight end class, the current consensus would have him as a likely undrafted free agent in the spring.

Boston College redshirt junior QB Darius Wade completed 16-of-27 passes for 208 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Wednesday's 27-20 loss to Iowa in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Wade (6'0/201) had his moments in this one, but couldn't come through with the game on the line. After the Hawkeyes took a 27-20 lead near the end of the fourth quarter, the senior had a chance -- with several minutes remaining -- to potentially tie the game up and force overtime. Instead, he was picked off by Joshua Jackson. BC would get the ball back once more, but that drive, too, sputtered out. It's been a largely disappointing career for the former three-star recruit, who was never able to truly grab the reigns and establish himself as a starter.

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon rushed for 157 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries in Wednesday's 27-20 loss to Iowa in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Dillon (6'1/239) did the bulk of his damage in the first half, including a gliding 66-yard run in the second quarter which almost -- but not quite -- went for a touchdown. He notched his lone score of the game from a more modest four yards out in the closing seconds of the first quarter. In no uncertain terms, Dillon has been a revelation for the Eagles. The true freshman closed the campaign rushing for at least 140 yards in six of his last seven games, finishing his inaugural season in the collegiate ranks having rushed for 1,589 yards and 14 touchdowns on the whole. We can't wait to see what he does for an encore next year.

Boston College senior DE Harold Landry (ankle) has been ruled out for the Pinstripe Bowl on Wednesday.

Landry (6'3/245) missed the final four games of the regular season due to the ankle injury and even with a month to recover, he's still not ready for game action. With the senior set to sit on Wednesday, that's a wrap on his collegiate career. He has said that he's "fully committed" to taking part in Senior Bowl festivities in January, though just how much he's able to participate will depend on his health. As a draft prospect, Landry is a headache to opposing passing games -- Walter Football's Charlie Campbell refers to him as a "pure speed defender" -- and a potential first-round pick. He registered 50 tackles (22 for loss) and 16.5 sacks during a healthy 2016 season.

Boston College senior DB Isaac Yiadom accepted an invitation to play in the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Yiadom has been a productive player for the Golden Eagles the last two years, finishing with 17 pass defenses as a junior and senior, and intercepting two passes in 2017. The consensus seems to be that he could move to safety, and that he currently projects as a late-round draft pick.

Boston College DE Harold Landry is "fully committed" to participating in the Senior Bowl despite recovering from an ankle injury.

Landry has been sidelined since week 8, but at this time there is no announcement on if he will play in the school's bowl game. Landry will be one of the names listed at the top of the edge rushing group.

Boston College junior edge rusher Zach Allen ended up with 42 stops in 2017, the most of any FBS edge rusher on the season.

Allen (6'4/280) reportedly has made the decision not to enter the 2017 draft, but if he were to enter, he'd likely be one of the first defensive ends off the board. Not only has excelled against the run, he also has three sacks and 14.5 tackles for loss for the Eagles in 2017. Assuming he doesn't enter, he'll rank near the top of edge rushers in the 2018 class.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that Boston College junior DE Zach Allen will return to school for his final season of eligibility in 2018.

"Those close to the situation point to several reasons," Pauline writes, "including the fact that Allen, who comes from an accomplished family, has not graduated and is only 20 years old." The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder could potentially land as a top-45 pick if he did declare. This season, he registered 93 tackles (14.5 for loss), three sacks and three passes defended while playing in all 12 of Boston College's games.

Boston College senior DE Harold Landry accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Landry (6'3/245) has drawn comps to Falcons DE Vic Beasley and will be in the first-round conversation this spring. Just how high he might be able to rise will depend on how the evaluating process plays out. The stalwart senior has registered 38 tackles (8.5 for loss) and five sacks this season. An ankle injury has sidelined him for the past four games, hence why those numbers are not particularly eye-popping. You want eye-popping, though, look no further than the 2016 season. Landry put up 50 tackles (22 for loss) and 16.5 sacks a year ago. When he's healthy, he has dominant upside.

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon ran for 193 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 42-14 win over Syracuse.

Dillon has rushed for at least 149 yards in four straight games and five of the last six. As he's taken off, so has Boston College's developing offense. The freshman sensation closes out the regular season with 1,432 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. His 7-5 Eagles are going bowling.

Boston College CB Kamrin Moore received an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Moore has started for Boston College since 2015 at both left and right corner. Moore is now the seventh known corner who received an invite. The other six include three FCS prospects and another from the Division III level.

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon ran for 200 yards on 24 carries with two scores in a 39-16 victory over Connecticut on Saturday.

What a run Dillion is on. Over his last five games, he's run for 272, 84, 149, 196, and 200 yards. Not bad for anyone, much less a freshman. His first touchdown was a 53-yarder that gave the Eagles a 14-3 lead over the hapless Huskies, and he scored again on a 20-yarder that made it 33-3 Boston College. Dillon just might be the Freshman Of The Year in the ACC. The 6-5 Eagles are going bowling, and will finish their regular season against Syracuse next week.
Sat, Nov 18, 2017 10:44:00 PM

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

Brown suffered the ever-terrifying non-contact injury on a cut in Saturday's 17-14 loss against North Carolina State. Darius Wade replaced Brown, and will presumably do so going forward. Brown flashed some dual-threat potential in 10 games, completing 51.9-percent of his passes for 1,367 yards and an 11/9 TD/INT rate. In addition, he rushed for 210 yards and caught a 25-yard touchdown pass.
