Boston College received a verbal commitment from three-star 2019 QB Sam Johnson.

Johnson picks the Eagles over fellow finalists Michigan, Missouri, Iowa and Syracuse. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound signal-caller ranks 15th in the 247 Sports composite ranking of the top pro-style quarterbacks in the class. Reports indicate that Johnson can sling it with excellent velocity and get the ball through tight windows, but also has excellent touch on the football. This could be a huge get that pays big dividends for Boston College down the road.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller ranks Boston College senior S Lukas Dennis as the top safety on his 2019 Big Board.

Denis (5'11/185) ranks 15th overall on the board, and he's the only safety ranked among his top 25 player. The senior defender was excellent in 2017, making seven interceptions and forcing two fumbles for the Boston College defense. A team looking for a roamer in their defensive backfield could take Denis in the first round next year -- assuming he plays at the same level in 2018.

Saints selected Boston College CB Kamrin Moore with the No. 189 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

A three-year starter at BC, Moore (5'11/203) compiled 50 tackles and nine pass break-ups for the Eagles in 2017. Moore struggled in man coverage and only recorded two interceptions throughout his college career, though he's a plus tackler with experience on special teams. He seems best suited to play nickel back in the pros.

Broncos selected Boston College CB Isaac Yiadom with the No. 99 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Yiadom (6’1/190) was a three-year starter in B.C.’s secondary, tallying 26 career pass breakups and three interceptions. Not a decorated collegiate, Yiadom helped himself in man-to-man drills at the Senior Bowl, then ran 4.52 at the Combine. Yiadom’s calling cards are his plus length and physical style, both in press-man technique and as a tackler. He doubled as a dominant gunner for the Eagles’ special teams. Although he likely lacks Pro Bowl upside, Yiadom’s versatility gives him a chance at a long career.

Titans traded up with the Raiders to select Boston College DE Harold Landry with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.

Titans gave up the No. 57 and No. 89 picks to move up 16 spots. Landry (6’2/252) set a B.C. single-season record with 16.5 sacks as a 2016 junior, then managed five sacks in eight games as a senior before suffering a year-ending ankle injury. Healthy for the Combine, Landry blew it up with a 4.64 forty and 87th-percentile athleticism. Landry’s tape reveals an edge-bending speed rusher who is unlikely to be a run-defense factor early in his career. Still, Landry’s outside pass-rush skills raise his floor as a sub-package contributor at worst with a double-digit-sack ceiling.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that there is buzz surrounding a trade up for Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry.

Rapoport also lists Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph and Georgia RB Nick Chubb have trade-up buzz. Landry (6'2/252) was one of the most surprising players not to get selected on Thursday, but it doesn't sound like he'll be on the board much longer on Friday. We wouldn't be surprised to see the Colts use their draft capital to move up to procure the services of the elite pass-rusher.

NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports some teams have Boston College edge rusher Harold Landry flagged medically.

This helps to clarify why Landry dropped out of the first round. We aren't exactly sure what the flag is, but Pelissero said it's related to his knee and back. Landry is a legitimate top 15 talent when healthy and will likely be a steal for a team who isn't as worried about his injuries.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline has Boston College edge rusher Harold Landry as the best available player after the first round of the NFL Draft.

Landry was projected to be drafted within the top 15-20 picks and it's still a bit of a surprise he's available. Landry has been compared to edge-rushers Vic Beasley of the Falcons and Von Miller of the Broncos by notable draft analysts. One of his biggest flaws that could have caused him to drop is his lack of prowess in defending the run. He will likely be one of the first few picks in the second round.

One NFL scout told Packers beat writer Rob Demovsky that Boston College edge rusher Harold Landry "is one of the most overrated players in the draft."

This scout must hate disruptive pass rushers. Landry offers fantastic athleticism and bend to win on the outside, then work back inside when the tackle compensates. He won't be known for his run defense, but Landry offers uncommon pass rushing skills. Every team needs that.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein compares Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry to Atlanta Falcons edge-rusher Vic Beasley.

This is the second Vic Beasley comparison we've seen recently for Landry, as Draft Wire's Luke Easterling also compares the 6-foot-2, 252-pound defender to the star pass rusher. Zierlein raves about Landry's "willingness to attack the throwing arm and not just the quarterback" and that his fluidity and angles make him tough to block. He also mentions that Landry is still learning to string moves together, and his production was way down in 2017 compared to 2016. He still projects Landry to be a first-round pick; one that could be off the board in the first 15-to-20 selections.

Boston College gave OC/QB coach Scot Loeffler the added title of "deputy head coach."

Not exactly the most orthodox of titles and it would appear to be mostly of the decorative variety. Loeffler's responsibilities with the Eagles will not be changing moving forward. He was initially hired as offensive coordinator in the winter of 2016, when he came over to the Eagles from Virginia Tech. This past season, Boston College surprised with a frisky offense, most notably when they posted 35-plus points in three consecutive contests.

Football Scoop reports that Boston College is hiring Garden City Community College OL coach Josh Beekman.

The ever-plugged in outlet does not specify what position Beekman might take on staff, but there's a good chance that it will involve the offensive line. The former Boston College guard has worked as OL coach with Garden City and Concord University over the past two seasons. His only previous jobs with FBS programs came when he served as a graduate assistant at Western Kentucky back in 2012 and then later as a graduate assistant at FIU from 2013-15.
Mar 30 - 1:49 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein compared Boston College CB Isaac Yiadom to Washington CB Bashaud Breeland.

Yiadom (6'1/190) gets strong reviews for his length and ability to press, which Zierlein mentions in his report. He does question his ability to "mirror routes," however, and that he can sometimes struggle with disengaging with bigger receivers. The latter can be improved upon with getting stronger in an NFL training situation, the former's a little tougher. Zierlein gives him a third-round grade, so he should be off the board late on Day 2 or early on Day 3.

ESPN's Todd McShay believes that Boston College edge-rusher Harold Landry helped himself with his workout on Sunday.

McShay says that Landry looked "really quick and fluid in drills on Sunday." He also posted a 4.64 40 yard dash, which was one of the fastest among edge-rushers who participated. McShay also notes that his 2016 tape is better than his 2017 play, and that he looks like a Day 2 prospect on film this year. Most mocks have him currently going late in the first round, and his performance in Indianapolis could have helped solidify that status for now.
