Boston College junior edge rusher Harold Landry will return for his final season of collegiate eligibility in 2017.

Interesting one, here, as Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline was hearing in late December that Landry's teammates believed he would jump for the draft. Landry will be coming back to wreak havoc for the Eagles in 2017, though, which should allow HC Steve Addazio a good night's sleep on Monday. This past season, the 6-foot-3, 245-pounder led the country with 16.5 sacks. In addition, he also turned in 50 tackles -- a whopping 22 of which went for loss. Landry also forced a hearty seven fumbles over the course of 12 games played.

Boston College teammates believe junior edge rusher Harold Landry will declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.

If true, Landry's final game was outstanding. His bowl performance against Maryland included 1.5 sacks, one interception and two pass breakups. Landry has flashed on a number of occasions and will likely find himself in the second day area.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles completed 10-of-22 passes for 151 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while catching a 20-yard touchdown pass in Monday's 36-30 win over Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Bowl season is always good for a few kitchen sink trick plays. The Eagles pulled off a sweet one on a double-reverse pass in which Towles went out on a route after getting the Rube Goldberg Machine working. The ball came back to him on a 20-yard scoring pass from WR Jeff Smith, boosting BC to a 23-7 advantage midway through the second quarter. Towles finishes out the final season of his college career having thrown for 1,730 yards with a 12/7 TD/INT ratio. He doesn't figure to be drafted in the spring.

Boston College junior DE Harold Landry is requesting an evaluation from the NFL Draft Advisory Board.

Landry produced some outstanding performances during his collegiate career, namely as a sophomore against FSU in September of 2015. That's not to say Landry is definitely turning pro, but Landry is a very solid run defending edge rusher with upside to get after to the quarterback.

Boston College DB John Johnson accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Johnson has starting experience at both safety and cornerback, so evaluators will no doubt be watching him in Mobile with an eye on identifying his best positional fit at the next level. Johnson is a team captain who collected three interceptions apiece in each of the past two seasons. In 2016, he was the team’s second leading tackler.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles was woefully ineffective in Friday's 45-7 loss to FSU, completing 3-of-11 passes for 29 yards.

And 19 of those 29 yards came on one completion. This was the fourth time in 10 games that Towles has failed to pass for 100 yards and the second time in his last five games that he has thrown for fewer than 50. The 6-foot-5, 238-pound Kentucky transfer has tossed just one touchdown pass in his last four games.

USA Today's Dan Wolken relays that there is a "school of thought" at Boston College that HC Steve Addazio should be given at least one more year.

Wolken wrote that the thought is that "it might just be better from a timing perspective to give Addazio one more chance to turn it around and start fresh with a new athletics director next year." Regarding the latter portion of that comment, AD Brad Bates' contract is set to run out at the end of 2017 and, per Wolken, it is not expected to be renewed. This season, Addazio and the Eagles have limped out to a 3-4 record. They are currently working on a 12-game losing streak in conference play.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles completed 11-of-22 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 56-10 loss to Clemson.

No interceptions for Towles, but this was a downright dominant performance by the Clemson defense regardless. They held the 6-foot-5, 238-pound redshirt senior to just 4.1 YPA. Their work against the run was no less strong, as Boston College did not have a player surpass 50 yards on the ground. Syracuse's defense should allow Towles to surpass 100 yards passing next weekend, but there is absolutely no fantasy intrigue here.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles completed 14-of-25 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-3 win over Buffalo.

Towles tossed both of his touchdown passes in the second quarter. This was his third contest with a pair of scoring passes. The 6-foot-5, 238-pounder also has a pair of games under his belt in which he failed to throw for any touchdowns at all, though, and there is no fantasy intrigue here.

Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles made his first start for the team in a losing effort to Georgia Tech, completing 11 of 17 attempts for 137 yards and an interception.

Towles added another 27 yards and a touchdown on the ground, but it was not enough. Boston College led for most of the second half, and Towles will almost certainly hold on to the starting job moving forward. His longest completion went for 26 yards.

Boston College junior RB Jonathan Hilliman carried the ball 17 times for 102 yards and a touchdown in the school's 17-14 loss to Georgia Tech.

Hilliman reeled off a 73 yard run early in the third quarter, making a number of Yellow Jackets miss in the open field. The running back broke his foot last September and this was his return to the field. Hilliman is BC's lead ball carrier.

Former Kentucky OC Shannon Dawson hinted that Boston College redshirt senior QB Patrick Towles handicapped him as a coordinator.

Dawson moved on to Southern Miss this offseason, but offered what appeared to be a shot at former Kentucky QB Towles, who himself moved on from the Wildcats to eventually hook up with Boston College. Said Dawson, "Typically, if I have a good quarterback, I’m a pretty good coach. And typically, if I don’t, I’m not a very good coach." The 6-foot-5, 238-pound Towles responded on Twitter with a sad emoji. He would take that post down, later writing on the social media platform, "I love that guy, and he loves me. Words get twisted all the time." This all appears to be water under the bridge, now.

An anonymous ACC coach who spoke with Athlon Sports about Boston College noted that the transition from DC Don Brown to DC Jim Reid should be noticeable.

Noticeable not only because Brown -- who joined Michigan's staff over the winter -- is one of the best defensive minds in the game, but also because he and Reid run almost polar-opposite styles. One coach called Brown's BC defense last year "legit," at least in part because of their creative use of pressure. "Reid played a base defense when he was at Virginia," another explained, "and on third down you get maybe one or two different pressures, so it’s like one end of the spectrum to the other. It’ll be interesting to see what they do." As for the Eagles' offense, "[y]ou felt like from an offensive standpoint if you scored 14 points the game was over and it really was." Former Kentucky QB Patrick Towles transferred over in the offseason and should provide something vaguely resembling a semblance of a spark this coming season. Boston College kicks off against Georgia Tech in Ireland at 7:30 a.m. EST on September 3.

Boston College HC Steve Addazio said that sophomore G Chris Lindstrom is "going to be a first-rounder in a few years."

Lindstrom earned his first start against Northern Illinois on September 26. He didn't look back, punching the clock with eight consecutive starts after that contest. Addazio is encouraged by the fact that Lindstrom has managed to put on a fair bit of weight, moving from an OL-scrawny 265 pounds in 2015 to a much more stout 305 pounds this offseason. During high school, ESPN twice named a Boston All-State selection.
