CFL MOCK DRAFT

crop_19774834027

Round 1

1

OTTAWA OL – Pierre Lavertu – Laval
Good solid pro-ready lineman who can play centre. Good replacement for Marwan Hage and solid core piece for years to come.

2

WINNIPEG OL – Matthias Goossen – Simon Fraser
Another lineman who can anchor the O-Line in the middle, something Winnipeg desperately needs

3

EDMONTON OL – David Foucault – Montreal
Another solid offensive lineman. Eskimos will take the chance that his NFL prospects don’t pan out.

4

MONTREAL WR – Devon Bailey – St. FX
Best playmaker available in the draft. Will provide Troy Smith with a solid Canadian weapon through the air.

5

BC DB – Antoine Pruneau – Montreal
Hard hitting durable safety. Will challenge for the starting job in the BC secondary. Mike Edem like.

6

TORONTO DL – Evan Gill – Manitoba
Ferocious D-Lineman. Will compliment Cleyon Laing and replace Khalif Mitchell at defensive tackle

7

CALGARY DB – Adam Thibault – Laval
Not the most polished DB available, but has athleticism that is off the charts. Calgary can mold him in their vision. Can also provide an option at returner

8

SASKATCHEWAN(via HAM) LB – Beau Landry – Western
Speedy, All-Canadian at both DB and LB. Will fill a void left by Craig Butler. Another Western product the Riders can turn into a star.

9

HAMILTON(Via SSK) LB – Andrew Lue – Queen’s
Hamilton doesn’t have any glaring needs, so this could be a Best Available situation, giving them depth on D.

Round 2

10

OTTAWA RB – Anthony Coombs – Manitoba
Several people have compared him to Andre Durie. What team wouldn’t want a multi-talented Canadian skill player they can build around.

11

HAMILTON(via SSK-WPG) DL – Quinn Smith – Concordia
His stock took a hit when he failed a drug test, but with Hamilton looking for depth, they will gladly pick him up on the chance that he is the real deal and not artificial

12

BC LB – Casey Chin – Simon Fraser
Number 1 ranked LB by Ridley Scouting. Very instinctive and a good tackler.  Can also long snap.

13

MONTREAL LB – Jesse Briggs – McGill
Special Teams Demon. Can back up at WLB or even learn the Safety spot.

14

BC OL – Terry Hart – St. FX
Aggressive Tackle who will likely be moved inside to guard. Versatility in an O-Lineman is never a bad thing

15

TORONTO WR – Kris Bastien – Concordia
Second ranked WR in the draft by Ridley scouting. A big solid target that will provide headaches when he draws a LB in coverage.

16

CALGARY DL – Dylan Ainsworth – Western
Will need to bulk up a little to start at DE, but quickness was undeniable at the combine. Will start on Specials as he develops.

17

HAMILTON OL – Jas Dhillon – UBC
Versatile Guard who could also play centre. More depth for Hamilton

18

SASKATCHEWAN OL – Kyle Paterson – Regina
Saskatchewan always likes their home province boys. Had a solid showing at the combines (Regional and National).

Round 3

19

CALGARY(via OTT) WR – Scott Macdonell – Queen’s
Big bodied inside receiver. Impressed in 1 on 1 drills at the Combine, could also be used as a TE. Can block and catch.

20

WINNIPEG DB – Derek Jones – Simon Fraser
Can play the corner or move inside. The Bombers need Canadians all over the place. If he starts, he could open a spot for another import.

21

EDMONTON DL – Kirby Fletcher – Acadia
Big and immovable on the middle of the D-Line in the CIS.

22

MONTREAL OL – Tchissakid Player – Northwestern State
Jim Popp likes his big Canadian Lineman. Keeps his blocks very well and has the potential to be a pulling guard in the CFL.

23

OTTAWA(via CGY-BC) DL – Derek Wiggan – Queen’s
Why not add some more Canadian depth on the DL. Didn’t test well, but his tape tells a different story

24

CALGARY(via WPG-TOR) LB – Max Caron – Concordia
A little drop off in his last year at Concordia coupled with a subpar combine drops this former CIS Defensive Player of the year down to round 3. Instinctive linebacker, who should be playing like he has something to prove.

25

CALGARY OL – Laurent Duvernay-Tardif – McGill
Drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs, the Stamps can take a chance on securing his CFL rights here, as they have 5 pick in the first three rounds

26

WINNIPEG(via CGY-HAM) K – Johnny Mark – Calgary
Best Kicker in the draft and Winnipeg needs one. O’Shea, as a former Special Teams Coordinator, knows the value of solid kicker. Will need to extend his range as he never attempted a kick over 50 yards at Calgary

27

BC WR – Evan Pszczonak – Windsor
Speed to burn and can climb the ladder to get the ball. Had the top vertical and ran a 4.59 – 40.
