Don’t know if any of you guys are wondering but what talent is there for the CFL draft in the upcoming month.
any Canadian QBs?
not really. Chis Sutherland an O-linemen from U of S should go pretty high. The guy is a beast.
at qb brad smith from Missouri is pretty good. he can run like a mug, and has a good arm.
another good one who is reggie mcneil from texas a&m. if he does not go to the nfl he may would probally go to the cfl. he is alot like brad smith.
The CFL doesn'tdraft americans sooner. They just sign them as free agents. You have to be a non-import, which has some loop holes, but basically you have to be Canadian
and really, isn't that the way it should be?
Bit disapointing about the Canadain QB, I would really love to see a great canadian QB in the CFL someday in my lifetime. Guess I have to wait and hope.
After how many years of university can a guy be eligible for draft?
The three guys I believe could make it to the CFL in the U of Montreal Carabins are Maxime Gagnier (DB) whos start on defense, and Joseph MrouÃ© (RB) and Yves BÃ©riault (WR), who could both become kick returners (but I doubt they would ever start on offense).
I believe it is after using 4 yrs of eligibility. At least thats when it always seems that people from the huskies are getting drafted, never in their 5th or 3rd
This year's draft is loaded with talent and Edmonton has the first pick. My Cats traded the pick for some guy named Maas. We got the Esk's #9 pick in the first round.
Pat Lynch(the old guy in section 7 at Ivor Wynn)
Billy I not sure about that. CFL teams have the rights to certain players which I assume are acquired in a draft!
I am pretty sure that that's how it goes. Players from the states are more of a first come first serve thing. Usually Teams just say hey, you are now on our negotiation list, and the rest of the league has to abide by it. As for the draft itself it is most defiently for only non-imports.
Billy is right. The Cfl drafts only Canadaian players. They must have completed 4 years of college eligibility. If they don't make the team they can go back to college and finish their eligibility or 5th year. American players are put on a negotiation list. Each team has around 35-40 players on the list and can add and drop players any time but can not add a player that another team has on their list. The CFL does not draft any American players...
Wow that's interesting there WHo.

Excellect, there is alot of talent to chose from there.
Some familiar surnames in that list. Does anyone know the relationship (if any) between:
Fernand Kashama and Hakeem?
Gordon Radlein and Julian?
Others I may have missed?
Fernand Kashama is the youngest of the Kashama brothers, Hakeem (former Ticat) being the older and Alain (Seahawk, drafted by the Alouettes in 2004) the middle one. They also are the cousins of Tshimanga Biakabutuka (former HB for the Panthers).
When I was younger, Biakabutuka was my neighbour. Well, in theory... He owned a house on my street, but I never saw him. His relatives were living there.
So how come there's NO info on the CFL site about the draft in April? I't in a month.
