The 2014 NFL Draft begins in three weeks in New York City. Coming off of a rare shutout year in 2013 at Radio City, the Boston College Eagles have several solid candidates for the National Football League this time.
Given his status as a Heisman finalist and an overall good collegiate resume, Andre Williams looks headed to the pros. What other Boston College Eagles will be chosen?
As we typically do around this time, we pulled together some of the more extensive mock drafts online and tried to take a snapshot of where NFL fans and analysts think our Eagles will land in the 2014 NFL Draft. The answers will probably not surprise you. Sites are organized from highest pick to lowest per player.

Williams, Pierre-Louis, and Patchan seem to be the only Eagles with a realistic shot three weeks out. Most people at Boston College and elsewhere have come to accept that Andre will be drafted. Assuming that the Eagles’ tendency to underperform in the later rounds continues — that is to say, players that we think might be drafted late actually won’t be — let’s say one of the other two makes it, probably KPL.
