This weekends CFL draft might not be as good as we all thought as many prospects have signed on with NFL teams and all teams will be reluctant to draft these player's as they could be a risk of these player's never seeing a CFL field (remember Cory Mace?).
The prospects that just signed NFL deals are
The number 3 prospect Concordia Linebacker Cory Greenwood is in negotiations with Kansas City Chiefs
The number 10 prospect Bishops WR Shawn Gore signed on with Green Bay
The number 11 prospect waterloo OL Joel Reinders has signed with Cleveland
Three other player's who were not among the CFL scouting Bureau's top 15 were also signed down south
Concordia OL Kristian Matte signed with Houston
Regina Reciever Jordon Sisco signed with Indianapolis
Wilfred Laurier DL Chima Ihekwoaba has signed with detroit.
Apparently Mack was very interested in Gore and Ihekwoaba, i am not saying they will all make the NFL but it is a HUGE risk drafting any of these player's.
THE POSSIBLE GOOD NEWS is NFL Mini Camps begin this week and DB Heffney, LB Doggett, WR Titus Ryan, WR Dudley Guice JR and DE Pat MacDonald will all be trying out for the respective teams and if they don't cut it during the mini camps they are still Bomber Property. All or some of these player's may be released/cut as early as the end of the mini camp (end of this week). I wish them all the best but i am really hoping to see Heffney, Doggett and Ryan back in Bomber colors sooner rather than later.
