BC beat WPG, so we are locked into the #2 spot in the draft. ;D

Thanks to @Doc_Dave for sig

HA, always nice to pick high but in years where we had top pick the player just rarely panned out for us.

of course

The replacement for Fantuz is Shamaud Chambers, and his back-up is Mike Jones.

But it wouldn't hurt to have a third Canadian receiver in the pipeline to learn, and to step in, in case of injury to #1 and #2.

Just please don't draft another Evan "I've played one game in three years due to injury" Gill.

8 Ontario boys kids ranked in the top 8...NICE.

Seems to match up to Mercer Timmis, Burlington boy who played in Calgary.

We also have Edmonton's second pick . So that gives us #2 , # 11,  and perhaps # 16 or # 17 (based on Esks final position).

You can never have enough good Canadian depth players who can develop into starters !  The number one ranked kid , Knevel, the huge tackle from Nebraska, is from Brantford . It would be nice to see the local guy do well in Cat stripes !

Not sure, but, I don't think he is eligible until the 2019 draft.  :o

It's encouraging to see that 9 of the top 10 picks are from Ontario, so it's less likely that we will lose them to a western or Quebec team. But then there's the NFL....

Football players like every other athlete and human can be "injury prone"

And just how do you guarantee that we won't draft another??

Our drafting last season was extremely successful!

Of the 7 picks we made in the 2017 Draft, 6 are on the roster this season.
4 made the active roster and 2 are on the practice roster.

The only pick that was not on the roster was WR Jacob Scarfone, who returned to Guelph to play his last season.
He had a very good season in Guelph and is a terrific prospect

In 2017, Scarfone is averaging almost 150 all-purpose yards per game, split between 622 receiving yards and 405 punt return yards. He has six touchdowns in seven games – five receiving, and that electrifying kick return last Saturday against Laurier.
