Davon Jones was the Eagles’ second-leading rusher in 2016 before switching to the linebacker position the following season.
Nine BC players signed with NFL teams after the end of the annual draft, including Jeff Smith, Hamp Cheevers, Lukas Denis, and Connor Strachan.
BC is expected to have seven or so players selected in this year’s NFL Draft—but what about the guys that might not hear their name called in April?
