The Edmonton Eskimos, as well as all seven other CFL teams can only protect so many players as the new Ottawa franchise can select current roster players from all teams in an expansion draft. The E-draft (as i call it) date is not annouced yet.
- The new Ottawa franchise selects 3 players from every CFL team (1 import, 2 non imports).
*If you dont know what that means, imports are American Born players. Non imports are Canadians.
- The Ottawa franchise will get a total of 8 Imports & 16 Non Imports from the E-Draft.
- Ottawa can only select NON protected CFL players.
Teams can only protect 10 imports and 14 non imports.
- Ottawa can select a MAX of 2 QB's in the E-Draft. 1 Kicker/Punter Max.
Ottawa cannot take a QB & Kicker from the same team.
- CFL teams can ONLY protect 1 QB.
