Boston College: Phil Jurkovec could be the number one quarterback in the 2022 draft class. Here’s how

The question is, is he a first round talent? Jurkovec has the size, arm strength and athleticism to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. Before he gets there however, he needs to refine his game in several areas. At…

Boston College: The transfer portal has been a highway of movement for the Eagles this off-season

Last off season, Boston College took advantage of the transfer portal landing quarterback Phil Jurkovec, safety Deon Jones (Maryland) and defensive tackle Chibueze Onwuka (Buffalo).

Patriots: Comparing Mac Jones and…Drew Bledsoe? It’s not that crazy

For months now, Mac Jones has been compared to Trey Lance, Zach Wilson and Justin Fields. For some ungodly reason, Jones has already been compared to Tom Brady as well. Let’s get this out of the way first. STOP COMPARING HIM TO BRADY. It’s one thing to say he has mannerisms like Brady (footwork in the pocket, arc on certain throws…maybe) but to put that type of pressure on the…

Boston College: A few more Eagles soar into the NFL during draft weekend

Another year, another convocation of Eagles heading to the NFL. And before we go any further, yes I googled whether it was a “flock” or not. Having players elected to the National Football League is obviously nothing new for anyone associated with the program, but the feeling felt from teammates, coaches, administrators and the alumni when one of their own moves on to the next level never gets old. Hunter…

Patriots: Was this a bounce back weekend for Bill Belichick?

I should have known. On Thursday morning, I wrote that Bill Belichick was drafting for his job this weekend. In fact, I said Belichick needed to show Pats fans he wasn’t just going to be content riding out his days here in New England like he just wanted to play shuffle board with Frank Costanza at Del Boca Vista. I truly believed if there wasn’t a legitimate direction for people…

The development this spring…
