ESPN.com college football blogger Mike Fortuna kicks off a series on the most important player on each ACC team by looking at linebacker Steele Divitto of Boston College:
The departure of record-setter Luke Kuechly for the NFL draft obviously presents a significant hole in production to account for, but the Eagles are looking to build off last year's strong finish by having multiple linebackers up their production.
