A total of 9 Eagles from this year's class are now in the NFL

Boston College already had 7 Eagles in the NFL from this year's draft class. Ian Silberman (6th round/49ers), Brian Mihalik (7th round/Philadelphia) and Andy Gallik (6th round/Tennessee) were all drafted in the 2015 NFL Draft. Soon after undrafted free agents Tyler Murphy (Pittsburgh), Josh Keyes (Tampa Bay), Manny Asprilla (San Diego) and Bobby Vardaro (San Diego) all signed rookie deals.

Today two more BC grads have found homes. Wide receiver/tight end Josh Bordner will be attending rookie camp with the Detroit Lions, while safety/cornerback Dominique Williams will be joining the Cleveland Browns.

Josh Bordner started at Boston College as a quarterback, with his most famous game being against Florida State in 2012 when Frank Spaziani pulled Chase Rettig for his backup. His senior season he changed positions to play a sort of tight end/wide receiver/full back position that did a whole lot of different things for the Eagles. He led the Eagles in receiving yards in 2014 with 346, and had three touchdowns and did a great job as a blocker and leader on the field and in the locker room.

Dominique Williams started all 13 games for the Eagles playing strong safety for the Eagles. He finished his senior season with 59 tackles, four of them for loss and an interception. He was also a starter for Boston College during his junior season as well.

Best of luck in the NFL Dominique and Josh!
