I saw Pavlovic play in a Bowl game for S. Carolina this past season; i believe he was considered a blocking TE more for that team, but i saw a pass thrown his way in that game (incomplete / un- catchable).
And I'll beleive the Ticat O this year employing a TE on anything close to a regular basis when i see it - very doubtful IMO, but love to see it actually; Pavlovic will not be around for Ticat TC if he hopes to play his final year of NCAA ball; if the Ticats are so set on using a TE or H-back why would they not have signed Ray Thomas - who was reported working out in hopes of a CFL comeback attempt - for another look unless his medical condition is too iffy? The notion that Kania or Goncalves are going to be looked at as TE "projects" is very iffy IMO but good for a typical CFL big reach draft thinking laugh - what, let me guess, these guys are big and special "athletes? The Ticats could have drafted Jeremy Marchand from the same StFX team as Kania - Marchand has been actually playing TE, been a leading receiver for StFX and is a 2 time AUS all-star receiver who goes at 6-3, 250+; maybe Desjardins never heard of him though; and maybe the TE/H-back talk is just for rationaliozing those picks; Kania might get a real honest look for the vacant DE jobs - that's his real position by the way Marcel - he was a 2 time AUS all-star DE.
Wonder if Rempel and Sutherland (from last year's draft) will get lined-up to try out as OTs (where they were all-stars in CIS ball) or be thought of as interior O-linemen in the mix with all the other NI vets there while OT is pencilled in for imports.
Passing on Crawford - with his US college ball play-making stats and good numbers at the CFL Combine tests, is still a real head scratcher to me. He must have done something at the Combine to un-impress the clique of CFL same old / word gets around thinkers so that all CFL teams passed on him in the early rounds? Kyle Koch not getting drafted at all is pretty strange too IMO.
Look forward to hearing about the competition in Ticat TC, including how the draft picks - this year's and last year's - look or fare.
