Gunnell was an offensive captain, the first wide receiver to hold that honor at Boston College since 1990.  He started all 13 games, was an All-ACC honorable mention selection and named team MVP.  Led the team with 60 catches, 880 yards, 7 touchdowns and average yards per game (67.7).  Served as Boston College’s primary punt returner, averaging 13.7 yards per return including a 56-yard return for at touchdown.

Holds the career receiving yards record with 2,459, breaking the record that was held by Pete Mitchell (91-94).  Also ranks second in career receptions and fourth in receiving touchdowns.

Unlike the other WR they signed after the draft — Jeremy Horne — Gunnell is a big time performer from a solid conference.  He is a little undersized at 5-10 but his production and where he did it cannot be ignored.
