Boston College Eagles:
Logan Tyler, Offensive Tackle: One place the Eagles struggled last season was the offensive line. The offense averaged just 2.1 yards per rush and 4.6 yards per play. The Eagles were 129th in sacks allowed; only Akron and Colorado State were worse. Virginia transfer Logan Tyler gives the Eagles a solid anchor at tackle.
At 6-foot-7, Tyler has excellent length and is difficult for defensive ends to get around. He has good feet and doesn’t lunge at defenders. Tyler should be a plug-in-play starter for the Eagles.
Jaeden Skee, Wide Receiver: Boston College has to figure out how to replace the production of do-everything wide receiver Zay Flowers. One candidate to replace some of that production is Jaeden Skee. Like flowers, Skee can play on the perimeter or in the slot.
At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Skee has the collegiate size and should see some reps at receiver, despite the experience returning at the position.
Kye Robichaux, Running back: Pat Garwo led the Eagles in rushing. However, the Eagles need playmakers to score points. Western Kentucky transfer Kye Robichaux could be a playmaker Boston College needs. Robichaux is a shifty runner who can also pop out of the backfield and catch the football.
He can give the Eagles’ offense some punch in the backfield, something that was sorely lacking last season.
