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.
Jan 11 - 4:53 PM

Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

It's highly doubtful that Murphy gets drafted, but he could potentially compete for an NFL roster spot if he learns a new position this winter. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Murphy doesn't have the arm of an NFL quarterback, but he rushed for more than 1,000 yards this year.
Jan 7 - 7:24 PM

Boston College senior OG Ian Silberman will play in Saturday's Medal of Honor Bowl.

The former four-star recruit began at Florida but transferred to BC in January to finish his career. The 6-foot-5, 293-pound Silberman "boasts a tackle-like frame with a chiseled upper-half and impressive muscular definition throughout, but plays with the nasty demeanor and blue-collar approach of a true trencher," CBS Sports' Derek Stephens wrote over the summer. Stephens believes Silberman plays tight and is a non-agile athlete -- which is surprising for a former TE -- though Silberman does get a head of steam when his number is called to pull or trap.
Jan 7 - 2:58 PM

Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy completed 11-of-19 passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 31-30 loss in the Pinstripe Bowl.

He chipped in 105 rushing yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Murphy, who transferred from Florida in 2013, ends a successful final collegiate season having passed and rushed for more than 1,000 yards apiece. He became the first ACC quarterback to rush for more than 1,000 yards since 2009. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Murphy will have to show evaluators he can handle a different position, as he doesn't have the arm of an NFL quarterback.

Boston College senior C Andy Gallik accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline is a huge supporter, 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, while CBS Sports' Derek Stephens believes Gallik "could be one of the top three centers off the board in 2015."

Boston College senior DE Brian Mihalik "offers the skills to be a rotational lineman for both three and four man fronts," according to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Mihalik only has 26 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and an interception this season, but the analyst believes his impact transcends numbers. "on film the lineman, who stands a shade under 6-feet/9-inches, is consistently getting pressure up the field, making quarterbacks uncomfortable or forcing ball carriers to alter the angle of runs," Pauline wrote. "He’s someone who must be accounted for on every down." Pauline thinks Mihalik is "likely a later round choice."
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 12:22:00 AM

Boston College redshirt senior QB Tyler Murphy said that he's been "very happy" with his decision to transfer from Florida to Boston College.

Murphy transferred from Florida in 2013. Several weeks ago, he broke Doug Flutie's team record for rushing yards in a season when he rumbled over 968 yards for the season. Then, against Louisiana-Monroe on November 8, he became the first ACC quarterback to rush for more than 1,000 yards since 2009. Murphy said, "I'm having a blast, and it's just fun to just go out with these guys that just care, that really just want to not let the team down." After the season has ended, Murphy is considering getting into coaching. "I think his age, his maturity, his intelligence really helps him in his preparation," head coach Steve Addazio said.
