Boston College LB Steven Daniels "is one of the most underrated prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft," according to Pro Football Focus' Zoltan Buday.

"He was not only the best linebacker in the ACC, but he also received the highest grade among all college linebackers, which is largely due to his work in defending the run," Buday wrote. "Although, he improved in pass coverage in the 2015 season and allowed only one touchdown in coverage; it is still to be seen whether he can be a three-down linebacker in the NFL, which will probably impact his draft position." Daniels led all Power-5 ILBs with a 15.3% run stop percentage and 50 of his 56 tackles in the running game were stops, which tells you that if he gets his hands on you, you're going down.

Boston College hired former Texans DL coach Paul Pasqualoni to serve in the same capacity.

Pasqualoni was the head coach at Syracuse from 1991 to 2004, but his last gig at the college level came when he served as head honcho for UConn from 2011 to 2013. He was fired in September, 2013, and has spent the last two seasons on the coaching staffs of the Bears and Texans. In a statement, Boston College HC Steve Addazio said, "Coach Pasqualoni brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from both the collegiate and professional level to our program."

Rotoworld's Josh Norris ranks Boston College S Justin Simmons as the No. 3 NFL prospect participating at the East-West Shrine Game.

"Simmons looks the part at safety, closing in on ball carriers in alleys or disrupting the catch point after anticipating passes," Norris wrote. The 6-foot-3, 201-pound Simmons has experience at both corner and safety, though you can expect him to play safety at the next level. That's what Norris and CBS Sports' Dane Brugler both think. Brugler specifically says Simmons's best position in the NFL is free safety, calling the Eagles' star "fast and decisive in all directions, closing with purpose in coverage and as a run defender."

Boston College hired Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler to the same position.

Loeffler has his work cut out for him. The Eagles finished No. 126 in total offense, 121 in scoring offense, 73 in rushing offense and 125 in passing offense last fall. "Scot and I have worked together at Florida and he was my offensive coordinator at Temple where we won nine games, including the first bowl victory in 32 years," HC Steve Addazio said. "He is regarded as one of the best quarterbacks coaches in the country and has a tremendous insight into the passing game and the offense as a whole. He is bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge to BC."

Boston College redshirt senior DT Connor Wujciak accepted an invite to attend the East-West Shrine Game.

Wujciak was named to the All-ACC first-team on Wednesday. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote in June that Wujciak "won't make too many plays away from the line of scrimmage, but he fills run lanes and takes pride in the dirty work." Wujciak is a run defender with a good motor. The 6-foot-2, 296-pounder runs a 4.84 forty.

Boston College senior S Justin Simmons will participate in the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-3, 201-pound Simmons has experience at both CB and S. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Simmons's best position in the NFL is at free safety, analyzing that the Eagles' star "plays fast and decisive in all directions, closing with purpose in coverage and as a run defender."

Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman suffered a broken foot and is out against Duke.

Hilliman was BC's leading rusher, with 198 yards and two touchdowns on 51 carries. The school has done a good job of splitting the carries, with Tyler Rouse and Myles Willis also receiving touches. The Eagles have now lost their top running back and quarterback.

Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman spun 24 carries into 119 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 17-14 win over Northern Illinois.

In a slog of a game, Hilliman was the most effective offensive player for either team and it wasn't particularly close. He averaged an even 5.0 YPC to carry the Eagles to victory while scoring his touchdown on a 21-yard dash near the end of the third quarter. The 6-foot, 224-pound sophomore's performance is made all the more impressive by the fact that he had compiled just 79 rushing yards on 27 carries through three games. He'll take on a tough Duke run defense next weekend as he tries to build on Saturday's nice effort.

Boston College senior LB Steven Daniels has "enough talent to get consideration as a back-up linebacker in a 3-4 alignment," TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline observes.

The 6-foot, 257-pound Daniels was a big reason as to why Boston College slowed down the Florida State ground game last weekend. Daniels finished the day with 7 tackles, with 2 tackles for loss. Pauline notes that the run stopping Daniels, "was ignored by scouts entering the season," and labels him as a "sleeper" prospect.

Boston College sophomore DE Harold Landry was sensational against FSU, totaling 4.5 tackles for loss including 1.5 sacks.

This was a coming out party for the talented edge rusher. Landry doubled his sack total for the season and lived in the opponents' backfield. He is not draft eligible, but keep Landry's performance in mind moving forward.

Boston College sophomore QB Darius Wade will miss the remainder of the season with a broken left ankle, according to Pete Thamel of SI.

Wade will have surgery next week and has a three month recover ahead of him. Wade was injured during Friday's game against FSU. Freshman Jeff Smith entered the game as the starter ahead of Troy Flutie, Doug's son. Both could play moving forward. The Eagles face NIU next week.

Boston College redshirt senior DT Mehdi Abdesmad is a "well built interior lineman who plays with great quickness," according to TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-7, 286-pound Abdesmad has posted 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks through the first two games of the season. Despite Abdesmad dealing with season ending knee injuries, the last two seasons, Pauline notes that Abdesmad is "highly considered by scouts entering the 2015 campaign."

Boston College sophomore Darius Wade completed 14-of-25 passes for 155 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-3 win over Maine.

Wade notched his touchdown with just under 30 seconds remaining in the first half, when he rolled out to the left and found Bobby Swiggart for a nice diving score. The Eagles ran a relatively vanilla scheme with their 6-foot, 201-pound sophomore, who worked mostly with short-to-intermediate passes. They'll likely continue with this gameplan in the early going, as Wade barely played as a freshman and needs to build his experience.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that NFL scouts are monitoring Boston College redshirt senior DT Mehdi Abdesmad's return from a knee injury.

Pauline gave Abdesmad a seventh-round grade. "Scouts will closely monitor the return of Mehdi Abdesmad whom they’ve stamped as a late round pick," he wrote. "He’s big and athletic but must prove he’s fully healthy and start piecing together a full game." Abdesmad missed all but three games last season due to the injury.

Former South Carolina redshirt junior QB Brendan Nosovitch has transferred to Boston College.

South Carolina switched Nosovitch from quarterback to tight end prior to last season, something the player didn't seem in favor of. He stuck with the team for the season, but after graduating last spring Nosovitch will transfer to Boston College and will likely play quarterback.
