I'm surprised at the rough play, most BCs are not big fans of wrestling, they just play super weird chase games that other dogs don't understand. :P
1 - Be very careful about letting her drag a leash. If you want that to happen/can't let her off-leash, I would put her in a harness, and leave a long line on her, but cut the handle. This will hopefully prevent her from getting caught, and the harness will prevent any neck damage.
They could very well be training her to play rough, so it is important she meets other dogs that DON'T play that way (see below).
Another thing you may want to consider, you are conditioning your puppy to 100% ignore you when she sees her friends, which is not ideal. I would also look into taking her out, and having her look at the dogs, and play with you instead (food or toys, whichever she prefers) so she learns you are as fun (if not more) than other dogs.
2 - Get her into a great puppy socialization class. A great class will have a very intensely monitored/supervised play session. Your puppy will learn if they are too rough, some puppies won't want to play, and there is a chance your puppy will be removed from play if they are being too rough. Don't let your dog be a bully, if another puppy is giving you signals they don't like it (hiding behind handler, growling, tense body language), remove your puppy.
