08/12/2012 - Boston College football coach Frank Spaziani sat behind a table before Friday's media day at Alumni Stadium with a fungo bat resting at his side. No curveball questions, he declared. No forkballs either. Turns out, Spaziani had already faced a breaking pitch in the morning. Chris Pantale, a fifth-year senior and the ACC's most experienced tight end, will miss significant time after breaking a bone in his foot. Pantale, who had appeared in 38 straight games and finished last season with 21 catches for 236 yards and three touchdowns, suffered the injury during practice earlier this week, and it flared up Thursday. Spaziani made the announcement after viewing X-rays Friday. "He's a tough kid and he pushes himself through a lot, but you can't push yourself through a broken bone," said Spaziani, who was unclear about which foot Pantale broke, but speculated it was his right. "The leadership, that intangible itself is going to be missed on the field." - Alex Prewitt, The Boston Globe

Cleary, a 6-foot-7, 313-pound product of Arlington Heights, Ill., has started 25 games along the offensive line over the last three seasons.

06/13/2012 - Top-five Boston College prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. TE Chris Pantale (6-6, 255)...The top offensive player on the list, Pantale isn't a household name, but he might be the most talented tight end in the ACC. After 25 catches as a freshman and 31 grabs as a sophomore, Pantale's statistics declined with only 21 receptions, 236 yards and three scores last year as a junior. But the blame for his dip in production can be linked to the Eagles' struggles on offense, ranking 112th in the nation in total offense and scoring. Recruited as a defensive end/tight end out of high school, Pantale spurned offers from Michigan and Florida to enroll at Boston College. He is still a work-in-progress as a blocker, missing too many assignments in the run game, but he is a good-sized pass catcher with the movement skills and reliable hands to be a legitimate NFL prospect. Scouts would like to see Pantale double his 2011 production as a senior, but he'll need help from the offensive players around him in order for that to happen. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
