So not sure now much of a BC fan you are but in 2004, BC actually had Matt Ryan as a FR QB. Is he on your roster?

The game actually takes place in the 03-04 season, so no Matt Ryan yet.

Meet The Eagles: Previewing the defense

As discussed in our last column -- Previewing the offense -- BC is looking for a culture change following the hiring of head coach Garvin Kemdichi IV. This defense has a few more bright spots than the offense in terms of playmakers. The Eagles front line is capable of pressuring the quarterback, while the defensive backs will be expected to stick with most receivers in the conference. Again, it's unsure of what Kemdichi plans to do in terms of game planning and play calling, but I'd expect a lot of cover two out of the 4-3 formation.

But enough speculation, let's meet the key players on defense:




DT Douglas Goodwin (RS Sr.)
Anchoring the defensive line is the big fella', 88 OVR Douglas Goodwin. At 6-1, 285, Goodwin brings strength and good veteran savviness to the defense. He's decently strong (84 STR) and rarely misses making the tackle (88 TAK).

DT Tom Martin (RS Sr.)
At 6-foot-4 and 282 pounds, Martin is a bit bigger than his running mate, but not as good (78 OVR). He's a good secondary DT with decent strength (82 STR) and tackling skills (82 TAK). However, if he doesn't get the job done, junior Tim Bulman is more than capable (75 OVR) to step in and take over.

DE Mathias Kiwanuka (RS So.)
One of the more exciting pieces of the BC defense is the 6-8 sophomore d-end, Mathias Kiwanuka (80 OVR). With top-end size, Kiwanuka boasts great speed (70 SPD), but sub-par tackling skills (68 TAK). Nonetheless, he's on the radar of pro scouts because of his sheer size and athleticism and has a chance to be special if he puts in the work.

DE Phillip Mettling (RS Jr.)
On the opposite side of the line is the 79 OVR junior. Mettling grades out as the better tackler (70 TAK), though is much smaller than Kiwanuka at 6-2, 257 -- though is also slower (64 SPD). Hot on his heels is the 6-4 sophomore Ryan Thompson (74 OVR), who could potentially be a better fit to grow with Kiwanuka as a tandem over the next few seasons.




OLB Josh Ott (RS Sr.)
Ott lines up on the outside, but he's the clearcut leader of this linebacking crew. The 86 OVR senior is the best tackler (81 TAK) of the group, though is possesses just average speed (69 SPD). Still, at 6-2, 225, he has excellent play recognition awareness and tracks down ball carriers at a good clip.

MLB Ricky Brown (So.)
At middle linebacker is the 6-2 sophomore Ricky Brown (67 OVR). Brown is a bit of a prospect still, but has some potential to grow into a solid contributor over the course of his college career. He doesn't have the savvy "know-how" that Ott possesses, but he's got great size and good speed for his position (70 SPD). He'll need to work on his tackling skills (70 TAK), but he's still young and has time to develop.

OLB Brian Flores (RS Sr.)
Opposite of Ott is the 5-foot-11 Flores (71 OVR). Though undersized, Flores boasts the best speed of the three starters (74 SPD) and will be expected to roam around in coverage schemes, and should be able to cover most tight ends in the conference. Overall, he's a bit of a linebacker-safety "tweener" with lackluster tackling skills (64 TAK).




CB Will Blackmon (So.)
Heading what just may be the most exciting unit to keep our eye on over the next few seasons because of their youth and potential is none other than sophomore CB Will Blackmon (80 OVR). At 6-0, 175, Blackmon clocks in as the fastest player on the team (90 SPD, 92 ACC) and will be a staple in this defense for this season, as well as future seasons. Expect to see Blackmon in the return game as well.

CB Peter Shean (RS Jr.)
Opposite of Blackmon is the 5-foot-9 junior, Peter Shean (73 OVR). Shean thrives more in zone coverage than man (82 SPD, 79 ACC), but he's got this season and next to continue improving. In the Big East, he's not a bad CB2, and should complement Blackmon fairly well.

Getting some reps in the nickel is another sophomore (redshirted), 5-foot-7 Larry Lester (71 OVR). Again, he's young and has time to grow with his counterparts in the defensive backfield. Lester is a step quicker than Shean (84 SPD, 78 ACC), but may also struggle getting beat off the line in man coverage. Nonetheless, this group has a bright future and will be one of the team's real strengths in time.

FS TJ Starcil (RS Jr.)
In the free safety spot is TJ Starcil (75 OVR), a 6-foot-1 zone coverage specialist (75 SPD, 74 ACC). The trend continues here... not spectacularly fast by any means, but he's got a good eye and will have success in cover two defense schemes.

SS Paul Cook (RS Sr.)
The eldest of the backfield, Cook (74 OVR) is the lone senior. He will be expected to have a leadership role on this unit, though he doesn't possess the strongest skillset or talent (77 SPD, 75 ACC). Cook has similar size to linebacker Brian Flores, at 5-foot-11, 201 lbs.

Just Kickin' It
Let's not waste too much time here... I present to you BC's kicker and punter for the upcoming year:

K Sandro Sciortino (RS Sr.) - 5'10", 201 lbs, 80 OVR
P Rob Leuffen (Sr.) - 6'5", 232 lbs, 60 OVR

The kicking game isn't necessarily fun to discuss, but having a 6-foot-5 punter is pretty rare to see. Both Sciortino and Leuffen are pretty balanced at what they do, favoring neither power or accuracy over the other. Both are seniors however, so BC will have to use recruiting points to pick up two replacements -- otherwise they face the risk of having walk-ons head up the special teams game.

Hopefully Kiwanuka and Blackmon develop into the stars they became IRL for BC!

Re: The Heights / dfsjunkie's BC Eagles

Was expecting there to be some kind of joke that Flores is like having a coach out there on the field for BC, aha.

That is definitely the hope! Blackmon already seems to be a stud. This game really nerfed the speed ratings, so to have 90+ speed is really impressive.

Kiwanuka has a little work to do. He's already good, especially considering he's still a sophomore, but I don't think he will turn into the stud he was IRL... but we'll see! Definitely fun having a few familiar names on the roster though.

I'm kicking myself now for not thinking about that. I was more focused on thinking, "wow, Flores really wasn't that good.."

Going to get a national preseason update in next before week 1 kicks off. Still a couple updates to go before our first game. Thanks for following along!

Re: The Heights / dfsjunkie's BC Eagles

If you finish 6-6 and make a bowl game, I would consider that a success in your first year. Good luck sir.
