The draft is really starting to heat up for Boston College, as the second Eagle has been selected in the sixth round of the NFL Draft. Center Andy Gallik, projected by many to be a Top 3-4 round center, was selected by the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee had a notoriously bad offensive line line last season, joining OL Jeremiah Poutasi, a guard from Utah who was selected in the third round.
Gallik concluded a stellar career at Boston College in which he really came into his own over the past two seasons. When he first came to BC he really struggled under Frank Spaziani, but showed a real knack his junior and senior year for the Eagles. He was the anchor of an offensive line that blew open huge holes on the run. It'll be interesting to see what the Titans do on offense this year after drafting QB Marcus Mariota. Gallik clearly has experience running an mobile QB offense. His senior season capped off with a nomination for the Rimington Award for best center in the country.
Gallik joins Ian Silberman as two of the newest Eagles in the NFL. Congratulations Andy and best of luck with the Titans.
