Boston College junior DE Harold Landry recorded the best run stop percentage (13.5 percent) among edge defenders in the nation last year.

He also had the fifth-best run-stopping grade among edge defenders. "He can shed blocks at the point of attack and he improved greatly as a pass rusher," wrote Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo. "Landry has the skills to take yet another step as a pass rusher while providing excellent run defense on the edge." As a pass rusher last year, Landry finished with a +12.1 PFF grade, five sacks, 10 QB hits and 24 hurries on 317 rushes. Pro Football Focus sees him as the No. 49 player in college football.

Three-star 2017 WR Caleb Stoneburner committed to Boston College.

"I committed there because I just felt like they were my second family," Stoneburner said. "I really liked the campus and how they ran things down there. I also like how they see me in the future as an Eagle." Per Rivals' Josh Helmholdt, "Boston College sees him starting out as a big wide receiver, and then will monitor his growth and could move him to a flex tight end later in his career." Stoneburner measures out at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds heading into his senior season at Coffman High (Ohio).

Boston College HC Steve Addazio indicated that he wants the program to start winning this season.

"Will this be a group of guys that will win a bunch of games at BC? Absolutely. I just want it to be now," Addazio said. "I don’t want it to be two years from now, I want it to be now, and they want it to be now." Summer is certainly the time for optimism and ice cream, but the Eagles are in for a tough climb here. Continuity has been part of the problem -- current OC Scot Loeffler is the third person to take that position in Addazio's four years as head coach. Last season, they finished just 3-9 while fielding one of the worst offenses in the country. On the note of the offense, Addazio called the spring practices of junior QB Darius Wade and redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles (who transferred over from Kentucky this offseason) "phenomenal."

Boston College redshirt sophomore WR Troy Flutie has been suspended following his Saturday morning arrest for operating under the influence of alcohol.

Flutie -- the nephew of former BC QB Doug Flutie -- was arrested at 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning after he hit a curb while driving. Per the Metrowest Daily News, the 6-foot, 182-pounder was arrested for "OUI, possession of an open container of liquor while driving, being a person under-21 in possession of liquor, and marked lanes violations." Boston College put out a statement following that messiness, saying, "Troy has been suspended from the football team by Coach Steve Addazio pending further investigation and faces the possibility of additional University sanctions pending the outcome of the court proceedings." He is set for arraignment Monday.

Per ESPN's Matt Fortuna, Boston College graduate QB Patrick Towles was "pushed" by the now-healthy redshirt sophomore Darius Wade during the spring.

The Eagles enter the summer with a two-man race for the starting quarterback job, a decidedly better position to be in than the No!-Man! tire fire that became of the position last fall following Wade's ankle surgery. When right, Towles is an NFL prospect. When wrong, he's a sub-replacement (9/14 TD/INT ratio last season) player who got ejected from his spot last fall despite being the de facto face of Kentucky's program. This race could go down to the wire and is something to keep an eye on this summer.

College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread noted that "[e]ach of [Boston College graduate QB Patrick Towles'] two seasons as a starter [with Kentucky] were marked by a Wildcats collapse."

Kentucky lost their final six games in 2014 and six of their last seven in 2015. Towles jumped off that ship in the form of a transfer to Boston College earlier this offseason. That should be an adventure. The Eagles offered one of the worst offenses in the country last season and while the 6-foot-5, 238-pound Towles is not without his athletic charms, he is also inconsistent to the extreme. With the Wildcats, he never completed more than 58% of his passes and averaged just 6.7 YPA for his Kentucky career. Last season, he threw for 2,148 yards with a dismal 9/14 TD/INT ratio.

Titans signed Boston College DL Mehdi Abdesmad.

Abdesmad (6'6/284) was plagued by injuries in 2013-2014 before finally staying healthy as a fifth-year senior and registering 15 tackles for loss, including 5.5 sacks. The Quebec native's snaps were still limited coming off a torn patellar tendon, however, and NFL scouts have expressed concerns with the stability of Abdesmad's knees. Abdesmad was exposed as a sub-par athlete at the Combine, running 5.10 with a 29 1/2-inch vertical. Long term, Abdesmad projects as a low-ceiling role player at five technique.

Eagles signed Boston College LB Connor Wujciak.

Wujciak (6'3/291) started 3 1/2 seasons at B.C., tallying 21.5 career tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles. Selected first-team All-ACC as a senior, Wujciak showed NFL-level athleticism by posting the top SPARQ score among defensive linemen at the Combine. Despite his athletic profile, Wujciak is an average run stopper and lacks the burst and get-off of a three-technique pass rusher. There was some pre-draft buzz that Wujciak could play interior offensive line in the pros.

Redskins selected Boston College ILB Steven Daniels with the No. 232 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Daniels (6'0/243) started 35 games at B.C., logging 30 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. As the Eagles' starting middle linebacker in 2015, Daniels earned first-team All-ACC honors as the playcaller for the nation's No. 1-ranked defense. A two-down, north-south thumper, Daniels has some Stephen Tulloch to him as a physical overachiever who stamps out the run. Daniels' non-stop motor helps atone for his average athleticism, possessing 4.86 speed with a 9-foot-4 broad jump. He should open his career on special teams and eventually push for snaps inside.
Apr 30 - 5:59 PM

Broncos selected Boston College S Justin Simmons with the No. 98 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

Simmons (6'2/202) was a 32-game starter at B.C., seeing action at both corner and safety and finishing his career with eight interceptions and four forced fumbles. Simmons helped himself in Indy, running a mediocre 4.61 forty but shining in the vertical (40") and broad (10'6") jumps as well as agility tests. Simmons' best NFL position will be free safety. A plus tackler with center-field range, Simmons has some similarities to Bengals FS George Iloka.

Boston College LB Steven Daniels will visit the Washington Redskins this week.

Daniels previously visited the Patriots and has worked out for the Saints, Browns and Colts. He's an underrated inside run-stuffer suited best to a 3-4 defense. Pro Football Focus compares him to Brandon Spikes.

Pro Football Focus compares Boston College LB Steven Daniels to Brandon Spikes.

Interestingly, Daniels just visited the Patriots and is considered an ideal fit for that defense -- just as Spikes once was. Daniels is a pure rock-em, sock-em run stuffer, finishing with PFF's highest run-stopping grade among linebackers in 2015. He wins with power and sound diagnostic skills. "Daniels and Spikes also used that same power and aggression to attack in the blitz game, where they could overpower running backs to create pressure," PFF concluded.
Apr 15 - 1:36 PM

Boston College LB Steven Daniels will visit the Patriots on Thursday.

As a local prospect, we're pretty sure New England won't have to use one of its 30 prospect visits to host Daniels. Daniels is a pure run-stuffing inside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He's quite good at what he does and would be a nice fit with the Patriots.
Apr 13 - 7:03 PM

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Boston College LB Steven Daniels to Jeff Luc.

While the analyst first thought that Daniels looked too big and stiff to project as NFL linebacker, he eventually concluded that Daniels' "motor and strength makes up for some of his deficiencies." Interestingly, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler also made the Luc comparison last summer. Great minds. Zierlein concluded: "He plays better football than he tests and could become a consideration for 3-4 teams looking for a thumper to add some depth."

Boston College turned down an offer from the Red Sox to play their November 19 showdown with UConn at Fenway Park.

Sox president Sam Kennedy had previously offered an open invitation, saying, "Given the positive feedback we received on last November’s Shamrock Series, the Red Sox would love to see a return of BC football to Fenway Park in the near future. We have extended the invitation for BC to return whenever it works for their schedule." The Eagles are opting to pass on the opportunity, at least for the time being. While the team has had a business relationship with Fenway Sports Management since 2004, AD Brad Bates would prefer not to give up any home games for a neutral site (regardless of how neutral Fenway would actually be).
