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.
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.
Four of BC’s top-six offensive linemen were sidelined with injuries against Wake Forest. Two of them won’t return this season. All head coach Steve Addazio can do is turn to the next man up.
