CFL.ca presents ‘Off-Season Depth Chart’, a series of articles reviewing every team’s depth chart at is stands to date. Note that these are not official team-issued depth charts, but projections based on insight and analysis from around the league, and don’t include 2022 CFL Draft picks.
It appears receiver Thomas won't be coming & I thought I heard that David Mackie won't either. My biggest question on the offence, outside of QB, is RB. Is Butler the real deal? Are Lions going to commit to the run?
Size wise under the new CFL field with the hash marks, we may be evolving to, essentially, 2 nickelback positions. In fact I've heard a new term for the WIL position - SPUR LB - a hybrid of LB & Safety. In Lokombo & Williams the Lions basically have 2 guys of MIKE size. It will be interesting how things play out this year around the league.
Thanks for the update. It's too bad, though good that Mackie is still around. I'm hoping that their future running attack involves handing the ball off to a running back who is actually moving and not standing still. I take it that is still legal in the CFL.
I love whats going on here. BC needed to clean house a few years ago. New ownership makes it easy,
Running game was pretty much non existent last season so that needs fixed.
Post draft Jones in Edm. was talking about the changes the hash marks make to linebackers. Basically - no more Will and Sam, both outside linebacker's need the same skill set because there really won't be a short side of the field.
