Surprised to see Saxelid leave. He's played G & both T spots his 1st 2 seasons. Had 10 starts, mostly LT last year & 6 in his rookie year. Great addition for the TiCats who need help on OL. McDonald was a really good ST for them last year as a rookie. Moving up to 8th gives the Elks a shot @ 2 highly ranked players so we'll see what Jones & Simon do with that. Overall, a pretty good trade for both clubs in a weak draft depending how the draft picks turn out.
