Oline questions and other links

Eric Hoffses posted a good interview with our Offensive Line coach Sean Devine. The coach gives assessments of most of his prospects without tipping his hand on the starters. Everyone has good things to say about Devine, but this is really a make or break season for him. The Oline has not been as consistent or as great as BC needs it to be. This year the old excuses of talent or scheme don't fly. These are Devine's guys. Let's hope he closes Spring Ball with a good idea of who his starting lineup is and doesn't have to reshuffle midseason like he did last year.

The seniors are getting read for Pro Day. Although the Panthers's writers are covering Castonzo, I think there is 0% he goes No. 1 overall. If Carolina likes him, they can trade down.

BC is one of many schools interested in Florida DB Jordan Diggs.

As expected, Tennessee fired Bruce Pearl. Andy Katz explained how the smaller secondary violations really broke the camel's back. As I have said, BC shouldn't ever touch him as a coach, but I expect him to land at one of our rivals. If it is not Providence or NC State this year, it could be another ACC or Big East school in 2012.

Hard to overlook last year. Devine had 3 NFL prospects on the line, solid underclassman and a great RB, yet did not meet expectations -- not even close.

As I have said before, because the OL 2010 could not dominate weak defenses, such as Weber State, Wake, Duke, etc. something was wrong with the coaching.

Castonzo-- widely projected to be a first round pick

Lapham -- projected by NFL Draft Scout to be a late-round selection or a priority free agent in April's draft.

One site has Claiborne projected as a 5th rounder.
