1st pick- Hamilton: Dylan Barker - DB

Article about him: http://www.canada.com/reginaleaderpost/ ... fb20587ef9

I guess I (or we) will just keep updating for the picks as they happen.

I have not yet found how to watch the draft live. Although I am sure one of the sports channels has decent coverage.

WHY?!?!?! I hate it when teams trade picks. Way to go, Edmonton...

Right now the panel is talking about Calgary and saying they desperately need an Offensive Lineman to protect Burris and Dickenson.

Anybody know how long in between each pick?

Aha, my prediction (See "Closure would be nice" thread) Jimenez will get traded to Calgary! :lol: :lol:

2nd overal pick - Calgary - Dimitri Tsoukas OL

Calgary actually gets two back to back picks!
2nd and 3rd overall picks!

Funny you say that, they just traded one to Edmonton for the second pick.

Shoots my theory all to heck! :oops: :oops: :oops:

They traded one rookie OL for another? Go Calgary. :lol:

3 mins til next pick.

Did the site just crash for anyone else? CFL needs to fix that...

But did anyone else get the impression Dimitri actually wanted to go to Edmonton?

DAMN! Sask took Shologan

Does anyone have full details of the Edm/Cal trade earlier?

Coverage has been awesome so far.

Mother f... Now we have to put up with "Kel" for the rest of the year... :roll:

a suggestion for next year, put a clock on the side to show how much time is left between picks.

hamilton got the two best prospects in the draft

If the teams continue with this trend, we'll run out of OL before the end of the third round. :lol:

I guess that the three and a half hours that the NFL shaved off their draft ended up going north.

I'm not knocking it, mind you. I wasn't able to follow this much, but it looked REALLY well done. Much better than, say, a conference call.

Congratulations to my friends Dylan Barker, Brendan Labatte and Paul Waldu on their draft day. It is time to showcase your talent in the worlds most exciting pro football league. Good luck fellas, like you'll need it!
