Which 2021 NFL Draft prospects are you watching in Syracuse vs BC?
We are over halfway through the ACC football schedule and our draft prospects look completely different than they did a little less than two months ago. There have been some risers, some fallers, and some players who have severely benefited from their teammates opt-outs. In a season that once looked like it would have never happened, we have been treated to some great football.
The 2020 season offered opportunities for so many prospects, mainly because of opt-outs from premier players. The conference was without star players such as Caleb Farley, Gregory Rousseau, Jaylen Twyman. There were much more, which just opened the door for a lot of guys to contribute.
This week in the ACC, the Boston College Eagles, coming off of a historical near upset vs Clemson, are hitting the road to take on the Syracuse Orange, who did not win a game in the month of October. Boston College nearly upset the Clemson Tigers in death valley last week, ultimately blowing a late lead. Granted the Tigers were without all-world quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Syracuse, BC 2021 NFL Draft primer
While the two teams playing may not be very exciting, there are certainly some players worth watching in this game. The Eagles’ offense has some life after the addition of Notre Dame quarterback transfer Phil Jurkovec.
On the Syracuse side, their defense has fallen off tremendously after the loss of star safety Andre Cisco. Just this week as well, the Orange saw cornerback Trill Williams opt out and declare for the 2021 NFL Draft as well.
