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.

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).

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Boston College S Justin Simmons interviewed with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.

Simmons dined with the franchise and also did film work with them. What makes this intriguing is that, per Pauline's report, is that Detroit spent time with Simmons during Shrine Game week and also interviewed him at the Combine. For his part, Simmons ran an impressive low-4.5s forty at his Pro Day event.

Rotoworld's Josh Norris believes the Seahawks might target Boston College DT Connor Wujciak as a potential OL conversion.

The Seahawks have a history of converting big, athletic non-offensive linemen who project as late round picks into blockers. Look at J.R. Sweezy and Kristjan Sokoli. Wujciak stands 6-foot-3 291-pounds and tested like the top defensive tackle at the NFL Combine. He is a sixth-round to undrafted free agent projection. Tom Cable sticks to his process, and this one fits. We'll be interested to see if a private workout or in-house visit pops up during the process.

With the Boston College basketball team's loss to Clemson on Saturday, the Eagles became the first team since Georgia in 1943-1944 to post win-less conference records in both football and basketball in the same cycle.

Wow. Just wow. There's not much else you can say. When the record you're breaking was set at a time when World War II was still actually a war in the world, that's terrifying enough. On the football side of things, the situation's made all the more depressing by the fact that Boston College boasted one of the best defensive teams in the country in 2015. Didn't matter, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Their offense was just that bad. Look no further than their 14-0 loss to Florida State on September 18. The Eagles played near-perfect defense and fell to the Seminoles, anyway. With sophomore QB Darius Wade recovered from an ankle injury and graduate transfer QB Patrick Towles now in the fold, there should be at least a little more offensive spark (and maybe a win or two in conference?) come 2016. Regardless, yikes.
