The Eagles had their third player picked in the 2019 NFL Draft last night as safety Will Harris was selected by the Detroit Lions with pick 81:

As a freshman he saw the field immediately, snagging an interception against Maine in his first game with the Eagles. He played on and off with BC in his first year, playing in all 12 games, and starting the final three games of the season at strong safety. He finished his freshman year with 20 tackles, 1 pass defense, and one forced fumble along with his interception. HIs sophomore year he saw even more playing time, starting all 13 games at strong safety, finishing the season with 2 interceptions and 47 tackles. His junior year he started all 13 games, with another interception, and a whopping four fumble recoveries and had a touchdown on a lateral against Iowa in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. His final season at BC saw Harris start all 12 games again, with two more fumble recoveries and an interception.

Harris will reunite with former defensive line coordinator Paul Pasqualoni who is now the defensive coordinator for the Lions. Congrats Will!
