Boston College gave OC/QB coach Scot Loeffler the added title of "deputy head coach."

Not exactly the most orthodox of titles and it would appear to be mostly of the decorative variety. Loeffler's responsibilities with the Eagles will not be changing moving forward. He was initially hired as offensive coordinator in the winter of 2016, when he came over to the Eagles from Virginia Tech. This past season, Boston College surprised with a frisky offense, most notably when they posted 35-plus points in three consecutive contests.

Football Scoop reports that Boston College is hiring Garden City Community College OL coach Josh Beekman.

The ever-plugged in outlet does not specify what position Beekman might take on staff, but there's a good chance that it will involve the offensive line. The former Boston College guard has worked as OL coach with Garden City and Concord University over the past two seasons. His only previous jobs with FBS programs came when he served as a graduate assistant at Western Kentucky back in 2012 and then later as a graduate assistant at FIU from 2013-15.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein compared Boston College CB Isaac Yiadom to Washington CB Bashaud Breeland.

Yiadom (6'1/190) gets strong reviews for his length and ability to press, which Zierlein mentions in his report. He does question his ability to "mirror routes," however, and that he can sometimes struggle with disengaging with bigger receivers. The latter can be improved upon with getting stronger in an NFL training situation, the former's a little tougher. Zierlein gives him a third-round grade, so he should be off the board late on Day 2 or early on Day 3.

ESPN's Todd McShay believes that Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry helped himself with his workout on Sunday.

McShay says that Landry looked "really quick and fluid in drills on Sunday." He also posted a 4.64 40 yard dash, which was one of the fastest among edge-rushers who participated. McShay also notes that his 2016 tape is better than his 2017 play, and that he looks like a Day 2 prospect on film this year. Most mocks have him currently going late in the first round, and his performance in Indianapolis could have helped solidify that status for now.

Boston College CB Isaac Yiadom ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Yiadom (6'1/190) with a solid run. This was by-and-large the case with the defensive backs group testing on Monday. It's a fast position in this draft class. While he managed just eight reps on the bench press, we like his playing strength and his assertiveness on the field. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom slots him into his positional rankings as the No. 11 cornerback in the draft class.

Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry's official forty time at the NFL Combine was 4.64.

Landry's (6'2/252) 40-yard dash was one of the fastest among all edge-rushers. Landry is an exciting prospect that has speed, balance, body control, and produced in college. He was compared to All-Pro Von Miller as well as Vic Beasley prior to the combine and with a strong showing has solidified his draft stock as a player likely to be selected in the first round.

With Boston College redshirt sophomore QB Anthony Brown (knee) sidelined for spring practice, sophomore E.J. Perry will work as starter.

Perry (6'2/200) did not see the field for the most recent campaign. He'll be receiving reps a-plenty with the first-team offense this spring. John Fadule should also receive a look.

Boston College redshirt sophomore QB Anthony Brown (knee) is not participating in spring practice as he continues his rehab.

Brown (6'1/210) sustained a season-ending knee injury on a non-contact play during an early November loss to NC State and subsequently underwent surgery. In 10 games prior to his sidelining, he had thrown for 1,367 yards with an 11/9 TD/INT ratio. Sophomore E.J. Perry figures to see the bulk of first-team spring reps in his absence. Eagles HC Steve Addazio said earlier this month that Brown was "probably ahead of schedule" and that he expects the signal-caller to be at full health (or close to it) by the summer.

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press believes the Lions should take Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry with their first-round pick.

"[Landry] fills a need at the Lions’ thinnest position," Birkett writes. "He doesn’t have Julius Peppers’ size or Von Miller’s athleticism, but his skills should translate into a long NFL career as an edge rusher." Landry has been going anywhere from the top 10 to a late-round first in recent mocks, so it's not unrealistic to see the edge-rusher land in Detroit, who have the 20th pick in April. This is a match that makes a lot of sense -- at least on paper.

Yahoo's Pete Thamel reports UCLA has hired Boston College OL coach Justin Frye.

Frye spent the last five seasons at Boston College and has 11 total years of coaching experience. Frye helped construct multiple top-20 rushing offenses at Boston College, likely a big reason UCLA HC Chip Kelly's interest. Frye will likely have similar responsibilities to that of his current position with Boston College.
Feb 22 - 8:13 PM

Football Scoop reports that UCLA has interviewed Boston College OL coach Justin Frye.

Per the outlet, there's a "pretty good shot" that Frye ends up on HC Chip Kelly's staff when all is said and done. He would be working in a similar capacity to that of his current position with Boston College. Frye has been on staff with the Eagles since 2013.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein compares Boston College CB Isaac Yiadom to Washington Redskins Bashaud Breeland.

Zierlein projects Yiadom (6'0/187) to be drafted in the 3rd round, saying he "looks long and lean, but he plays with adequate strength in disrupting routes and has the aggressiveness to challenge and muddle the catch-point." Zierlein also mentions his "special teams value may move him ahead of similar cornerbacks in this draft." Yiadom continued to help his draft stock after standing out in the Senior Bowl during one-on-one drills and recording three pass breakups during the game.

NFL.com Analyst Bucky Brooks compares Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry with Denver Broncos star Von Miller.

This is very lofty praise, as Miller is considered by many of the best players in the game. Still, there's a reason why Landry is getting top half of the first-round draft talk by some, and he was a productive player during his time at Boston College. "When I look at Landry's game, he reminds me a lot of Von Miller during his time at Texas A&M," Miller writes. "Now, that is a helluva comparison for a top prospect based on how the Super Bowl 50 MVP has dominated the league as a pass rusher, but Landry's first-step quickness, balance and body control are eerily similar to Miller's movement skills, including the dip-and-rip move that the Boston College star seemingly stole from the Pro Bowl pass rusher."

Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reports that Bill Sheridan will join the Boston College staff as a defensive assistant.

Football Scoop reports that Sheridan will be the linebackers coach. His last collegiate job was with Michigan, where he served as the defensive line coach in 2003-2004. Since that time he's coached in the NFL, including a two-year stink as the defensive coordinator for the Buccaneers from 2013-2014. His last job was as linebackers coach for the Lions; a job he had held since 2014.

An NFL pro personnel director believes the similarities are strong between Boston College DE Harold Landry and Vic Beasley.

The evaluator believes the two share a common get off when the ball is snapped, and that each lack a pass rushing plan after that. Landry's 2016 season was fantastic and might be the best tape at that position in this class. So that leads to questions about his 2017 campaign and who Landry really is as a player. It would be difficult for Landry to replicate Beasley's athletic profile.
