Andrea Adelson ESPN Staff Writer 

Boston College defensive end Harold Landry returns to the Eagles to pursue a lifelong goal: becoming a first-round draft pick in 2018. But he has more on his plate than just football. Landry recently got engaged, had a baby boy in June and is on track to graduate in December. But he wouldn't want it any other way.

ACC commissioner John Swofford said he expects the revenue gap between his conference and the Big Ten and SEC to close once the ACC Network launches in 2019. "That's why we're doing the channel," Swofford said. "We fully expect a gap with particularly the Big Ten and SEC here for a couple of years but that's the very reason we've signed to do what we're doing. We fully expect that gap will narrow considerably when we get the channel up and running."

Welles Crowther, whose 9/11 heroism continues to inspire, would have turned 40, Wed., May 17. The former Boston College lacrosse player died while saving others in the World Trade Center. His family, friends, college, high school (Nyack, N.Y.) and people worldwide perpetuate his legacy.

Get ready for the Year of the Defense in the ACC

While strong QB play got the ACC's headlines in 2016, the defenses, which feature some of the league's top stars, may generate a national buzz in '17.

The Bills select Boston College LB Matt Milano with the No. 163 pick (fifth round), their first selection since No. 63. He was the No. 229 ranked player by ESPN but addresses the Bills' biggest remaining need, outside linebacker. Milano is 6-foot-1 and 223 pounds and should be an immediate contributor on special teams.

Third-round pick John Johnson said he "knew there was a shot" the Rams would draft him, "but I wouldn't say they were on me hot." How does he see himself? "I think I fit best as a safety, although I think I have a corner body type. I came into Boston College as a corner. I like covering man-to-man, and I like covering zone."


John Johnson fills Rams need at safety

Los Angeles drafted the Boston College safety in the third round, and get an instinctive and fluid athlete who shows quality range.

The Rams got their DB. It's John Johnson, a safety out of Boston College, taken with the 91st overall pick to complete Day 2. Both of the Rams' safeties (Maurice Alexander and Lamarcus Joyner, transitioning from slot corner) are unrestricted free agents next offseason. So is their main backup (Cody Davis). Johnson is deemed to have good athleticism and ball skills. 6 feet, 208 pounds.
