CFL and NFL Receiver Pool

Any names jump out amongst these AAF names,
or amongst those trying out now for the NFL from the CFL,
for sake of CFL talent (again)?

In

A) reading the following excellent article on NFL receivers that analyzes each NFL team’s current needs at receiver,

B) noting that half the NFL teams, and more than I think the author indicates, need an OVERHAUL at the receiver position,

C) noting a few CFL receivers who are trying out for the NFL now AND

D) a number of names in the AAF are doing well at receiver, which is I think the only position on offense that has a good number of names for a higher level of play (sort by yards receiving),

(Note at time of this writing, one more game remains to be played for Week 5 so it might be updated by the time you check the link on Monday)

I figure between all these CFL and AAF names you have much of the receiver pool for the CFL (nationals excluded) and the NFL.

In the AAF, the receivers in Orlando and in San Diego jump out on the list, with each team having the best QB and crappy QBs respectively. Otherwise the names with 199 yards receiving and above jump out to give us about 10 names.

For the NFL, there are also in particular about the first four rounds or so of names in the NFL draft, so much can depend on how well this receiving draft class does in the NFL such that the remaining names left make their way either to the CFL or out of football given that also very few in the AAF will crack an NFL roster (again if already):

I didn’t know this did you?

Each CFL team has been paired with one of the eight AAF teams:

Edmonton Eskimos with Phoenix(actually Arizona) Calgary Stampeders with Salt Lake B.C. Lions with with San Diego Saskatchewan Roughriders with San Antonio Winnipeg Blue Bombers with Memphis Hamilton Tiger-Cats with Orlando Toronto Argonauts with Atlanta, and both the Montreal Alouettes and Ottawa Redblacks with Birmingham.

When you look at receiving stats and sort by yards receiving, and look at every receiver with 199 yards and above after 5 games, every team but Memphis has good receivers and San Diego has a number of them spread out with the catches despite having crappy QBs.

BC should have quite their pick from San Diego along with Hamilton from Orlando assuming the NFL does not pounce first for training camp.
