Cats Uncover Punt Returners
Apr. 2 2008 The Hamilton Spectator
Also, Obie is looking seriously at starting five Americans
in the defensive secondary this season.
Canadian d-lineman Keith Shologan (Central Florida),
showed up at the free agent camp in Florida
He skipped the CFL evaluation camp,
but he is widely regarded as the best
defensive lineman in the draft
and could be an intriguing pick to provide
ratio room for the all-American secondary.
"He is a legitimate guy for this league,"
O'Billovich said of Shologan.
O'Billovich also likes Samuel Giguere from Sherbrooke.
"He was the best prospect among the receivers
at the (evaluation) camp," O'Billovich said.
And the possibility remains that the Ticats
will trade the top pick given the club
has the ninth and 17 selections as well.
At six-foot-two, 290 pounds, Shologan is
undersized for an NFL interior lineman,
but he is from the Edmonton area
and he has ties to Danny Maciocia.
If Edmonton doesn't target him
with their 2nd pick overall,
I wonder if we should grab him ninth?
