ACC in the afternoon

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

The lunchtime links were geared towards the NFL draft, so here's an afternoon edition with more of a focus on this past weekend's spring games:

  • Boston College coach Frank Spaziani is realistic about the progress his team needs to make before its first kickoff. Quarterback Dominique Davis gave himself a B- for his performance this spring, and that's without an injured starting center. The good news? There's still time.

  • The strong performance by Maryland's second-team offense on Saturday was proof that depth is starting to develop in College Park. Ralph Friedgen can thank his young receivers for part of that, and Quinton McCree was their leader on Saturday.

  • Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams isn't asking much of his offensive linemen -- just that they get him "past the first level." He'll make the rest happen.

  • And when he does, he won't forget to blow a kiss to mom.

  • Here are some more odds n' ends from the Hokies' spring game.
