Below are notable Boston College players eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft. The Eagles bounced back from a 3-win season in 2015 to go 7-6 last season, and the team touts one of the most highly regarded pass rushers in the country.
Offensive Tackle Marcell Lazard – 6060, 311 – Graduate Senior
Lazard is a graduate transfer from West Virginia; having started 6 games for the Mountaineers in each of the last two seasons. He’ll be looking to showcase his abilities for the next level this season and is penciled in as the starting Left Tackle on a youthful offensive unit.
Defensive End Harold Landry – 6030, 250 – Senior
Landry is widely regarded as one of the star prospects in the country entering the season. Some reports have even indicated that NFL scouts have a historically good baseline assessment of Landry entering the season. Why does it matter? Teams conduct assessments to set their understanding of a player; if Landry’s pre-season assessment is this high it could be develop into a high valuation.
Landry shows ideal twitch and tilt as a boundary pass rusher. His ability to flatten and pressure in tight spaces will be highly coveted to NFL coaches. Uncoachable skills, such as flexibility and explosiveness, are often regarded as the most desirable of traits; Landry has multiples of them.
