Winnipeg fish wrap had an interesting breakdown of NI talent rankings from "anonymous CFL scouts". This is the order of their overall rank by team NIs. Followed by my comments, of course.
Hard to argue with the Riders being among the top NI groups. These guys are still young and entering their prime.
More top end talent on the Stamps, but having two kickers as part of their Top 10 NIs lowers their grade for me.
I'd put Montreal ahead of Calgary because of the depth of quality they have.
When a team's picking at the top of the draft more often than not, it should accumulate NI talent almost by default. Unless of course, Joe Mack is the GM.
No idea how anybody could put Hamilton's NIs ahead of either BC or Edmonton. Weak NIs are one of Hamilton's biggest problems.
Much better than this ranking gives credit for.
Considering how often Toronto either trades away their top picks or wastes them on guys headed to the NFL, it's no surpsise how brutal their NI talent is. Other than Durie, there's nobody on this list that would start for any other team.
Seriously? A joke to see this considered to be the worst NI group. If I'm Toronto, Hamilton or Winnipeg I'd trade 10 for 10 with Edmonton in a heartbeat.
