With Chris Lindstrom as the latest example for BC, no other school has had a higher percentage (36 percent) of their draft picks come from the offensive line since 2000.
Nine BC players signed with NFL teams after the end of the annual draft, including Jeff Smith, Hamp Cheevers, Lukas Denis, and Connor Strachan.
Ranking second in the conference only behind three-time defending league champion Clemson, BC boasts 13 All-ACC players this season—including four First Teamers—both of which are program records.
David Bailey ran for 112 yards on 28 carries as BC controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage, holding Louisville to just 47 yards rushing on 32 carries in its 38-20 win over the Cardinals Saturday.
For the first time in a few years, BC—a team that’s returning the majority of its 2017 starters, particularly on the offensive side of the ball—is experienced and healthy entering the preseason.
Fourth quarter aside, the Eagles’ defensive performance on Saturday was encouraging to say the least. Their offense, on the other hand, was hit with another injury in the trenches and failed to reach double-digits.
