Alouettes New Director of College Scouting

Russell Lande is the new appointee. Tweets through Joey Abrams, etc. I assume an official announcement will be forthcoming.

He does and will continue his U.S. media work, and also looks like he puts out a draft guide. Has a high regard for Jim Popp.

I have always been fascinated by these NFL "draftnik" types.

Russell Lande ?@RUSSLANDE 6h Just finished great open tryout in Miami for Montreal Alouettes. Saw a number of good/intriguing players with CFL/NFL potential.

Russell Lande ?@RUSSLANDE 19 Apr Boarding plane to begin crazy 17 day stretch on road - Tryouts for Alouettes, cover NFL Draft from CHI & then CFL Draft meetings in FLA.

Russell Lande ?@RUSSLANDE 19 Oct Went to CIS Game between Montreal & McGill & saw two VG prospects with real chance of playing in NFL &/or CFL.

I guess he is referring to o-linemen Duvernay-Tardif and Foucault.

Max Caron probably

But Caron is at Concordia.

Le gars semble avoir une certaine crédibilité. Nous verrons dans quelques saisons si les résultats sont là.
