Above ive listed some players that Edmonton has had or has on their neg list. Out of that list, i believe the two hardest guys to get to the CFL are: #1) Rec Isaiah Stanback, currently on the practise roster of the New York Giants. & #2) QB Dennis Dixon, currently on the practise roster of the Baltimore Ravens.

Both guys (imo) would be impact players. Unless Edmonton moves Isaiah to QB which would then create a bit of a learning curve.

Heres a link to what Eric Tillman had to say about some of the players listed above:

As for Dan Persa, i was told he is one of the strongest QB's to play in NCAA football in the last 10 years. Tillman talked about bringing in both Persa and Jeremiah Masoli to camp in 2012, but that did not happen.

Once Eric Tillman released this list to the media, i would believe he took off alot of the players and added others. This way some people may think Edmonton is protecting guys like Blaine Gauthier etc, but are not.

Here are 4 players that the Edmonton Eskimos are VERY high on and are trying to bring into camp in the near future:
#1) QB, Dennis Dixon, currently on the Baltimore Ravens practise roster. Dixon is in his late 20's this NFL backup QB has alot of Pro experience. For his size, he has very good foot speed and has been mentioned to be interested in the CFL for 2013. If Edmonton can land his services, their QB issue may be solved.
#2) QB, Everett Golson, Notre Dame. Has great potiental and will certainly be scouted by many pro football teams. Including the NFL & CFL.
#3) QB, GJ Kinne, former UFL Nighthawk. This guy is "the real deal" according to some CFL scouts. I've been told its VERY likely Kinne is in Eskimos trainingcamp in 2013.
#4) Reciever, Isaiah Stanback, currently for the New York Giants practise roster. He's got alot of pro experience. And scouts say he can play QB. Interesting to see if he chooses playing time in the CFL over money sitting on a practise roster in the NFL next season.

That's some great scouting CFLNFL. I've been speculating on Dennis Dixon for quite a long time myself:


Someone else wrote about Dan Persa some time ago, and I have to agree with his prospects for the CFL as well.

Isaiah Stanback? Are you kidding me? Did you even watch him play in college? NO THANKS!

For Everett Golson, and mind you I am a big fan for sake of my alma mater, for the pro game I say no way given subpar passing accuracy.

You can develop a young QB in many ways for the pro game, but passing accuracy and a new throwing motion in my opinion, based on plenty of failed efforts, cannot be developed enough after college. Tim Tebow is the last such failed experiment.

Also QBs who played merely in a spread offence out of the shotgun in college, as in much of the Big 12, don't fare well in the NFL though can for the CFL. The only exception that comes to mind is perhaps the turn-around of Alex Smith of the 49ers last season and his great performance this season, and now even Alex Smith is fighting for the starting spot with a rookie with a hot hand.

Great posting cflvsnfl you put a lot of work into that :thup: I have no idea what it would be like to have that much free time.

Dont have that much free time. But when i come across something, i will post it.

These are mostly quarterbacks except for one wr and lone kicker. Any word in your grapevine on a return specialist. I still am of the belief that that is one of the Eskimos top concersn this off season.

Out of 35 players, the most postion is OL, then QB, then DL, and a slipt between the rest i am told. It changes alot though.

Yes, Scotty McGee, kick returner in the NFL is on the Eskimos Neg List. Or was. He may have been removed recently.

The Edmonton Eskimos didn't escape the NFL draft unscathed when a pair of negotiation list prospects were selected on Saturday.

Oregon State's Gabe Miller, a six-foot-three, 242-pound defensive end, was chosen in the fifth round by the Kansas City Chiefs while the Baltimore Ravens drafted Virginia Tech quarterback Tyrod Taylor in the sixth round.

The Eskimos still have at least a pair of prospective QBs on their negotiation list in University of Mississippi and former University of Oregon pivot Jeremiah Masoli plus Scott Riddle of Elon University.
