Boston College CB Al Louis-Jean worked out for the Bears and Patriots last week.

Louis-Jean (6-foot-1 3/8, 187 pounds) ran a 4.68 second forty against the wind and a 4.53 second time with the wind. The latter number isn't terribly impressive when you consider he was on FieldTurf and had 10-15 mile-per-hour gusts behind him. NFL.com's Gil Brandt says Louis-Jean is merely a free-agent pickup possibility.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports Boston College QB Chase Rettig will work out for the Falcons.

The workout will take place on Friday. Rettig is nothing more than a seventh-round or undrafted free agent quarterback, as he failed to improve during his time in college. This could be a nice gesture from a team whose starting quarterback also attended Boston College.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes that Boston College DL Kaleb Ramsey's durability concerns "makes him borderline undraftable."

"Shame that BC DT Kaleb Ramsey is walking episode of ER which makes him borderline undraftable. The guy can play and has some quality tape," Weidl tweeted. The 25-year-old Ramsey, has had his share of injuries during 6 year career with the Eagles. Ramsey didn't help his cause by missing his recent Pro Day with a right-calf injury. Moving forward, he'll have to prove to teams that his body can hold up, if he wants a spot on an NFL roster.

Boston College DL Kaleb Ramsey was unable to work out at the school's pro day due to a right-calf injury.

This is not a good development for a prospect with serious durability questions. He's been shelved at various times over his career with injuries to his head, hip, shoulder, foot, knee and calf. Ramsey (6-foot-2 7/8, 292 pounds) just completed his sixth season with the Eagles. He'll be 25-years-old as an NFL rookie. NFL.com considers him a priority free agent.

Boston College RB Andre Williams improved on his 4.56 second forty from the combine at the Eagles' pro day.

Williams, however, elected not to share the new number with the media. The 6-foot, 227-pound back showed improvement as a pass catcher at the event, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt. He's coming off a season in which he won the Doak Walker award and set the school's single-season rushing record with 2,177 yards on 355 attempts. "Today, for me, I really wanted to improve on my 40 and just perform better at catching the ball," Williams said. "I think I did very well on both of those, and it was a good day for me." Gushed BC coach Steve Addazio: "A lot of NFL teams are looking for big, strong running backs, first- and second-down running backs that can pass protect. He's tremendous in pass protection and can stop a linebacker on a dime. He can get that 4-yard carry for you and he has home run hitting capability, and I think that's what makes him very attractive."

NFL.com's Gil Brandt believes that Boston College RB Andre Williams showed improvement as a pass catcher, at Boston College’s pro day.

"Williams had a good workout, and most important for him, he showed dramatic improvement catching the football, with only two drops at his pro day. That’s something everyone will be checking on when they evaluate him, because if he does that he’ll have an excellent chance to advance in the draft," Brandt wrote. No one questions Williams skills as a downhill-runner, but the NFL is a passing league these days and he'll have to prove he can be effective on passing downs. Williams did not catch one pass last season for the Eagles, but his recent performance at his Pro Day was a step in the right direction. While Brandt was high on Williams running ability, He thinks Williams could slip to the third or fourth round because of his receiving skills.

Scout.Inc's Todd McShay says Boston College DE Kasim Edebali has the "best snap anticipation of 2014 pass rushers studied."

"Intriguing Day 3 rusher if lower-strength/leverage improve," McShay tweeted. Edebali hails from Germany and hasn't been as developed as most other prospects. Still, he shows great burst and aforementioned anticipation off the edge. The 6-foot-2, 253-pounder is currently projected to go between Rds. 6-7.

Scout.Inc's Todd McShay believes Boston College LB Kevin Pierre-Louis will be a contributor in the NFL.

McShay loves Pierre-Louis' speed. "Still developing as player (instincts, hands)," he tweeted. "But can contribute in NFL. If nothing else, can cover kicks right away." NFL.com's Charles Davis recently called Pierre-Louis one of the draft's big sleepers due to his speed. Pierre-Louis lacks ideal size (6-foot, 232 pounds), but ran the fastest 40-yard dash amongst linebackers (4.51 seconds) at the combine.

NFL.com's Charles Davis believes Boston College LB Kevin Pierre-Louis will be one of the draft's sleepers due to his size.

Pierre-Louis' ridiculous combine included the fastest 40-yard dash amongst linebackers (4.51 seconds). He also tied for third in the bench press (28), finished third in the vertical jump (39), tied for second in the broad jump (10-8) and placed second in the 20-yard shuttle (4.02). "He's not just a workout warrior -- he was very productive in college, but lacks ideal size (6-0, 232) and is not a name people hear very often. I'd keep an eye out for him, though," wrote Davis. Pierre-Louis is projected to go undrafted, though his combine performance may earn a Day 3 selection.

NEPatriotsDraft.com's Mike Loyko reported that Boston College senior WR Alex Amidon will forgo an opportunity to play in the NFL to pursue a career as a Navy Seal.

"Boston College WR Alex Amidon will not pursue an NFL Career. Instead he will try to become a Navy Seal. That's pretty awesome,"Loyko tweeted. BC's all-time leading receiver finished 11th in the nation in receiving in 2012 with 1210 yards, and led the Eagles in receiving in 2013 with 1032 yards. Amidon set records at BC for most receiving yards in a season and in a career, and had an opportunity at the next level as a possession receiver.

Boston College RB Andre Williams could move up in the draft if he runs well, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

"If Andre Williams runs well will move up in draft. Told me he's working hard on catching balls and will run faster than people think," Brandt said. Williams rushed for 2,177 yards and averaged 6.1 yards a carry. He also added 18 touchdowns to his resume in 2013. One major stat that was missing from his breakout season was the fact that he had zero catches. If he can show teams that he has the ability to catch out of the backfield and run well in space, it would be an added bonus to pair with his tough downhill running style.

Former Gators offensive guard Ian Silberman has enrolled at Boston College.

Reports last month had Silberman ticketed for Louisville, but those plans fell through, perhaps because Charlie Strong, a former UF assistant, left for Texas. Silberman will now be reunited with former coach Steve Addazio (as well as former teammate QB Tyler Murphy, who also transferred to BC). The senior-to-be Silberman will be eligible to play next season. Silberman, a former four-star recruit who used to possess the athleticism to play tight end, never earned the confidence of Florida's coaching staff.

Florida redshirt junior QB Tyler Murphy has transferred to Boston College.

He began classes on Tuesday. Boston College coach Steve Addazio recruited Murphy when he was at Florida. The fifth-year senior graduated in December and has one year of eligibility remaining. He's eligible to play immediately and is a top candidate to replace outgoing three-year starting QB Chase Rettig. Murphy will have to fend off freshman early enrollee Darius Wade, Josh Bordner and James Walsh to win that job.

Boston College senior WR Alex Amidon caught 10 balls for 129 yards in Tuesday's 42-19 loss against Virgina Tech in the Advocare V100 Bowl.

The 22-year-old finishes the season with 77 catches for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns. It wasn't a fluke, as Amidon's numbers were actually a tad better in 2012, when he set school records for receptions (78) and receiving yards (1,215) as a junior. Amidon is a tough receiver who excels going over the middle, though he lacks the height and build to project comfortably as a possession receiver at the next level.

Boston College senior RB Andre Williams rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries in a 42-19 loss to Arizona in the Advocare V100 Bowl on Tuesday.

Williams beat out Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey for the Doak Walker Award, but he lost decisively to the Wildcats' back on Tuesday as Carey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns. Williams entered the game with 2,119 yards and 17 touchdowns, which earned him a ticket to the Heisman Trophy presentation in New York.
