2015 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh vs. BC Scouting Preview

Neither Boston College nor Pittsburgh faced serious challenges in Week 1, as the Eagles scored 24 second-points to beat UMass, 30-7, and the Panthers shut out FCS-level Delaware, 62-0.
While Pittsburgh sophomore receiver Tyler Boyd is this matchup’s most exciting prospect, each team has a few key senior prospects that will get late-round looks at the NFL level. Offensive and defensive line play will be the focus for NFL scouts evaluating this game’s eligible talent for the 2015 NFL Draft.

Boston College Eagle
Brian Mihalik, DE, #99
At 6-9, 288 pounds, Mihalik’s size stands out before the ball is even snapped. He impresses once the play begins as well and shows the ability to get out of his stance quickly, especially for such a tall defender. He uses his long arms well to get great extension on opposing offensive linemen, and keeps his head up to watch the play develop and get off blocks. Mihalik’s motor never quits and he fights hard to make plays inside, while staying with longer plays all the way to sideline and downfield. He shows the awareness to recognize situations where he can strip the ball out as well, and while he lacks the upside of an NFL starter, his skill set will intrigue teams on Day 3.
