2014 Boston College Backs Preview: Dave Dudeck, RB Backup

Our Preview: David Dudeck, RB

Dudeck still seems like a new face on the Eagles, but is about to enter his third season.

As a running back in 2013, he only got five carries for a handful of yards, but during the course of the year, the Eagles coaches elected to swing him to wide receiver. There, Dudeck managed 84 yards on eleven catches, snagging one touchdown reception.

Dudeck is still listed as a running back, however, but do not rule out the possibility that he will spend more time split out as a receiver, as that is a position that needs more help than this one.

If he does remain as a running back in 2014, expect a limited number of snaps from him in a backup role.

It is also possible that he will continue to be used in a special teams role; Dudeck had nine kickoff returns last season and three punt returns.
