2015 Draft Stuff

Before next week's big event (The Senior Bowl).
This weekend is the Shrine Bowl, the first event heading to the Spring draft.

Three first round (CFL draft) projected player are on the rosters.
Brett Boyko, OT from University of Nevada Las Vegas
Darryl Waud, DT from Western University
Addison Richards, WR from Regina University.

None of them stood out in practice, I would say even Boyko's stock has dropped some. The other two are unlikely to get any NFL interest at all. Richards had the worst reviews of all with a terrible first day where he dropped most and this Example:

WR Addison Richards from Regina is 6’5? but lacks twitch and sorely lacks both power and burst

I would not be surprised to see Boyko at the CFL combine.

Next week in the Senior bowl, the player to watch will be RB Tyler Varga who is regarded as one of the top RB prospects this year.

But so far there is no standouts like LDT or Foucault the NFL may be interested in drafting.

Just to add to your thread, an article/list of Canadians that were in Bowl games this year. Some have already been drafted, some are up for grabs.

Woops, that was last years. :oops:

Tyler Varga having a great week of practice at the Senior Bowl. Likely on his way to being a mid-round draft pick. He's been the talk in Bama.

I would not rate Varga as an early pick. We have not had a home brew since LaPointe but, our backfield is unsettled as Whitaker has the injury prone label in my books. I don't know why Diedrick is still listed with the team. Does Varga play STs?

I do hope Addison Richards gets good game time, as this would help evaluate him for the Canadian Draft.

Richards was part of the Shrine game as opposed to the Senior Bowl. He caught two passes for 20 some yards. Caught the two passes thrown at him but I he acknowledged himself that scouts over there told him what he lacked in his game. So it is likely the CFL for him at least for a couple years.
