Boston College will be sending two football players to the NFL combine held this year in Indianapolis, Indiana. The event that will be held from February 28- March 6 will feature athletes from all over college football, and will be joined by defensive back John Johnson and linebacker Matt Milano. Johnson finished the season last year with 77 tackles and three interceptions, while Milano had 55 tackles and 6.5 sacks along with a blocked kick.
No surprise either of these guys will be attending as they both seem to be the type of players that NFL teams are looking for. Milano, who could be a straight linebacker, or could be a tweener/safety combo, is a fast hitting linebacker who has the speed to attack the play at the line of scrimmage or get back in coverage. He is much different than Steven Daniels who was drafted last year, who is more of the traditional linebacker.
John Johnson, is a multi-positional defensive back who also has experience on special teams. He’s played safety, corner back, and was on most of the special team packages the past year. That flexibility and versatility will be looked upon highly by teams like the Patriots.
Of course both men are going to need to have good combines to catch the eyes of scouts, but we can all watch along on the NFL Network, as they will be broadcasting most of the events.
Good luck Matt and John.
