Boston College TE Long to enter 2021 NFL Draft
Boston College tight end Hunter Long declared for the 2021 NFL Draft on Thursday.
Long announced his decision via social media with a thank you to coaches and family. The move comes as the Eagles (6-5, 5-5 ACC) voted to skip any potential bowl games after a trying season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“To my brothers at BC, I would not have wanted to play next to anyone else,” Long’s statement read in part. “The brotherhood we formed will last forever and I can’t wait to watch you all achieve greatness. With that being said, I am officially entering my name for the 2021 NFL Draft. The journey is just beginning.”
Long caught 57 passes for 685 yards with five touchdowns in 11 games as a junior in 2020. In three seasons, he posted 89 receptions for 1,297 yards and nine scores.
