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.

ESPN's David M. Hale believes Boston College sophomore RB Jonathan Hilliman is a darkhorse candidate for ACC offensive player of the year.

"Two years ago, Andre Williams rushed his way to New York for the Heisman ceremony. Last year, Tyler Murphy became one of the most prolific rushing QBs in ACC history," Hale wrote. "So what’s to suggest the Eagles won’t have another monster rusher in 2015? Hilliman certainly has the talent to make it happen, and few runners in the league are more fearsome near the goal line." The 6-foot-1 224-pounder earned All-Atlantic Coast Conference third-team honors as a true freshman last year, ranking second on the team with 712 rushing yards while starting six games. He's in line for a far bigger work load in 2015.

Boston College senior LB Steven Daniels "will likely draw comparisons to former Cincinnati linebacker Jeff Luc," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"A prospect who will likely draw comparisons to former Cincinnati linebacker Jeff Luc, Daniels lacks ideal height for the position, but he's thickly put-together and carries his weight well to make plays all over the field," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot, 257-pound Daniels was second on the Eagles' defense with 68 tackles, including 57 solo tackles, two tackles for loss, and one sack in 2014. While Daniels was sound versus the run and attacking downhill, Brugler notes that the Boston College prospect "lacks ideal experience moving in reverse in coverage."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes that Boston College senior DB Justin Simmons's "best position as a NFL prospect is likely at free safety."

"After playing most of his career at free safety, Simmons kicked outside and lined up at cornerback the second half of last season due to injuries. And understandably, he looked like a safety trying to play corner, gaining experience at a different position, but also showing his best position as a NFL prospect is likely at free safety," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-3, 201-pound Simmons lead the Eagles defense with 70 tackles, 57 solo stops and two interceptions in 2014. Brugler adds that Simmons "plays fast and decisive in all directions, closing with purpose in coverage and as a run defender."

Boston College redshirt senior DT Connor 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," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"As a run defender, he holds the point of attack with elevated eye level to track the ballcarrier and muddy the trenches," Brugler wrote. "While stout vs. the run, Wujciak struggles to consistently generate power as a pass rusher (three sacks in 26 starts), but he does move well laterally to work around blockers, displaying the nonstop motor to make frequent visits in the backfield." The 6-foot-2, 296-pounder runs a 4.84 forty. He should spend this season trying to add bulk for the pros.

Boston College sophomore QB Darius Wade exited spring camp as the team's top QB.

Head coach Steve Addazio said to never close the door on a potential change down the road as to always allow for competition. Wade saw minimal action during his true freshman season in 2014.

Eagles selected Boston College DL Brian Mihalik with the No. 237 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Mihalik is one of the best athletes in this class, posting the second best SPARQ score among defensive linemen. The Eagles along with the Seahawks prioritize athleticism on the third day in the trenches. Mihalik played end and tackle at BC, but we wonder if he gets moved to offensive line.

Titans selected Boston College C Andy Gallik with the No. 208 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Gallik (6'2/306) made 40 starts at B.C., earning first-team All-ACC honors as a senior. Painfully short on athleticism, Gallik ran 5.50 at the Combine with a 27-inch vertical and 8-foot-flat broad jump. Gallik is a pure power blocker who wins with big hands (10 1/4") and a fighter's mentality. He has short arms (32 3/4") and projects as a center only, but could become a functional starter or better in a gap-running scheme. We wouldn't rule out the possibility of Gallik putting immediate heat on incumbent C Brian Schwenke.

49ers selected Boston College OT Ian Silberman with the No. 190 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Silberman (6'5/306) transferred from Florida to Boston College ahead of his senior season where he started all 12 games at right tackle. He plays with a nastiness and is a plus run blocker. Silberman will likely have to kick inside to guard at the NFL level.

Boston College QB Tyler Murphy is visiting the Steelers on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson.

We doubt it is at quarterback. Muprhy is a good athlete who scrambles and moves the pocket from the quarterback position. He lacked accuracy and timing far too often. Murphy did put together a solid workout, led by a 1.59 10 yard split. He is a Florida transfer.

Boston College WR Shakim Phillips clocked a forty in the 4.3s at the school's pro day.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline passed along that NFL scouts considered Phillips a draftable prospect entering the season. Unfortunately, Phillips struggled with injuries all season -- finishing with only 13 catches -- putting his stock in flux. "While today's workout doesn't push him into the late rounds, it will make Phillips a commodity as an undrafted free agent," Pauline wrote.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers met with Boston College C Andy Gallik "for several hours" on Tuesday night.

Tampa Bay also dispatched their assistant offensive line coach to Chesnut Hill in order to take in Gallik's pro day workout, so don't be shocked if you see the Eagle prospect snapping to Jameis Winston on a lovely Sunday afternoon this fall. "By all accounts, Gallik looked terrific in position drills," Pauline wrote. "The senior sat on his Combine numbers but looked smart and smooth with his footwork and body control." Pauline is a big fan of the center, believing the 6-foot-3, 299-pounder to be "a better version of former Boston College center Tom Nalen," who had a 15-year NFL career.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports that Boston College senior C Andy Gallik (ankle) has been forced to pull out of the Senior Bowl.

Gallik suffered the ankle injury in the Pinstripe Bowl. Pauline is a big fan of the center, believing the 6-foot-3, 299-pound Gallik to be "a better version of former Boston College center Tom Nalen," who had a 15-year NFL career. The analyst calls Gallik a potential top-100 choice.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy completed 2-of-12 passes for 31 yards and an interception in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

Murphy additionally lost 20 yards via sacks. It was an ugly showing, and only went to show again that Murphy doesn't have the arm of an NFL quarterback. This year, Murphy, who transferred from Florida in 2013, became the first ACC quarterback to rush for more than 1,000 yards since 2009. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Murphy isn't likely to be drafted.
