Eagles in Atlanta and Indy and other places

As expected, none of BC's current seniors were selected in the NFL Draft. But when you are a potential late-rounder, being an undrafted free agent is not a bad thing. It enables the player to select a team with a favorable roster.

Nick Clany will be joining Matt Ryan with the Atlanta Falcons. I am obviously biased by fandom and geography, but this is a good fit for Nick. The Falcons are very thin on defense and at Linebacker (yet they didn't draft another LB). Clancy will get a chance on special teams and should probably get a very good shot at the practice squad.

Another team that loves BC guys is Indianapolis, so it was not a surprise to see them sign Emmett Cleary. He joins former Eagles Anthony Castanzo and Gosder Cherilus as protection for Andrew Luck. The Colts had a need at OL and only drafted one lineman. I guess that means Cleary's chances to make the team are decent.

Chris Pantale signed with the Jets. I have no idea who is going to be QB there this year nor how they will use him. I hope he gets a fair shot. If he hadn't been injured this season, I think he would have been drafted.

John Wetzel signed with the Raiders. They are another team with a lot of holes, so hopefully he gets a chance.

This is the first time since 2005 that no BC player was selected.

This draft provides yet another snapshot of Spaz's ineptitude.

Consider that BC produced Zero draft picks.

UConn -5 picked
Rutgers - 6 picked
Syracuse - 3
UMass - 1
Harvard -1
Princeton - 1
Cornell -1

17 excellent athletes that chose (lesser??) NorthEast football programs.

Did BC recruit any of these guys (many 2 stars) ?

Let's hope Dazz has a good eye for "under the radar" talent . It can be done (as we all know)

Actually, Rutgers had 7 selected in the draft

UNH had 1

Total "NorthEast" football players selected 20!

Total from BC --> 0

My, oh, my, how far BC has fallen.

Mod34b- don't be ignorant, we all know this is Jags fault, not Spaz's

HUGE win for the baseball team today. Two out of three ain't bad vs. Miami.
More importantly, this team has shown it is not giving up, and that they are continuing to improve. Once again, another great performance by Andrew Chin...

I'm glad for the BC guys who have signed free agent deals; however, having no one drafted just underlines what a total disaster Spaz was as a head coach. I get so angry whenever I think of the magnitude of the damage he did to the program.

Here's looking forward to bright days, once again. I am most encouraged by Addazio's recruiting thus far; let's hope it pays off on the field, and soon.
