As head coach Steve Addazio looks to continue to develop Boston College into a contender in his second year, he will have to depend on several new faces.

Josh Bordner, Dan Crimmins, Drew Barksdale and Tyler Murphy; expect to hear those names making plays for the Boston College offense this season. 

The Eagles lost most of their offensive production from last year when the trio of Chase Rettig, Alex Amidon and Andre Williams graduated. Amidon became the program's all-time leading receiver while at the school and Williams carried the Eagles down the stretch in 2013 while putting together a Heisman-worthy final year. However, Addazio must now rely on an inexperienced group of receivers and Murphy, a Florida transfer, to produce for the offense. Adding to the Eagles' worries is the torn ACL receiver Harrison Jackson suffered this spring.

Crimmins has the most experience of the group of receivers. He caught 10 passes for 61 yards. Bordner served as the backup quarterback for the last two seasons, and Addazio hopes to use the 6-foot-4, 220 pound athlete in multiple ways on offense this season.  

Murphy does have experience as a starting quarterback. He played in six games for Florida last season and threw for 1,216 yards and six touchdowns.
