Big Day for The Eagles

Tomorrow, April 25th, 2009 is a big day for the Boston College Eagles football team.

First of all it is the Jay McGillis Spring game where the boys who have been practicing and scrimmaging hard this Spring get to show off and in some cases fight for a starting spot on the roster next August. For those of you who are unable to attend, Boston College is broadcasting the game on their website FREE of charge. (I know people will jump at this because who doesn't like free stuff)

Next the NFL Draft. BC has numerous players entered into the draft, lead by the Highly Touted prospect B.J. Raji. Pete King says he is going 6th to the Bengals. If Raji indeed goes top 5 or 6 it will be huge for BC. Producing 2 top talents in 2 years? That would be a huge and I mean HUGE recruiting booster, meaning there could be even more top talent coming from BC in the future.

Here are a few of the other BC players that could get drafted:
Ron Brace - DT (Likely 2nd Round)
Clif Ramsey - G (Likely 4th or 5th Round)
Brian Toal - LB (Likely 7th Round)
Chris Crane - QB (Likely Undrafted)
Ryan Purvis - TE (Likely Undrafted)
Kevin Akins - CB (Likely Undrafted)
Robert Francois - LB (Likely Undrafted)

Not the biggest or best BC draft class but there are some solid prospects and I expect everyone of them to get tryouts or drafted with teams because they are solid.

Oh and on other BC Football news. BC vs. Penn State?? Maybe.
