Already feeling the college football withdrawal? Did the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl – a barnburner between Georgia Southern and Eastern Michigan – not cut it for you? Well, the games only get better from here on out. Enjoy them while they last, and do your best NFL scout impersonation so you know who to draft in your upcoming rookie or devy drafts.
SERVPRO First Responder Bowl
Boston College Eagles vs. Boise State Broncos
1:30 p.m. ET, ESPN
The Eagles finished their season with a 7-5 record, but started the season hot. They won seven of their first nine games, but then had a tough finishing schedule of Clemson, Florida State, and Syracuse. They had quality wins over Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Miami, while finishing fourth in the ACC. They will play the Broncos who finished 10-3 and finished first in the Mountain West conference. They had quality wins over BYU, Fresno State, and Utah State but lost the rematch in the conference championship to Fresno State in a snowy blizzard.
For Boston College, the most intriguing player on the field may be Zach Allen (For you IDP owners). Allen is listed at 6’5” 285 lbs, and he has all the intangibles you look for in an NFL edge rusher. He is not a Von Miller or Melvin Ingram type of body – Allen is a big dude. He is adept at stopping the run, has a good arsenal of moves, and can shed blocks well. I would expect Allen to be a top 15 pick in the 2019 NFL draft, and possibly a top-ten pick with a good performance at the Combine.
