Clemson Football's Mike Reed might be a candidate for the head coaching job at Boston College

It was made public yesterday that Jeff Hafley is leaving Boston College to become the defensive coordinator for the Green Bay Packers.

Today, 247Sports' Brandon Marcello posted that Clemson Football cornerbacks coach Mike Reed is a candidate to replace Hafley in Chestnut Hill.

Marcello notes that this list is from insider sources, and isn't just one person's speculation.

Reed is an Eagles alum. He played defensive back for three years under Tom Coughlin and one season for Dan Henning before being drafted with the final pick of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. He also played in NFL Europe.

Reed came to Clemson in 2013. He had previously coached with the Philadelphia Eagles, NC State and Richmond. He started his coaching career with the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes in Germany.

Losing Reed would be a big blow to the Tigers coaching staff, especially at this point in the offseason. On the other hand, he would be a great hire for Boston College.

CBS ranks Will Shipley as 4th best running back prospect

As noted in this post on X, Will Shipley is currently the fourth-ranked running back available in the NFL Draft by CBS Sports.

It should be noted that CBS ranks Shipley as the 76th overall player, which would infer that he is a third-round pick. The No. 1 running back on the list, Braelon Allen from Wisconsin, is the 65th overall player.

This helps illustrate the deflated value of running backs in the NFL these days. It will be a surprise if any running backs are selected on Day 1 of the draft.
