Ben Heenan - Shamawd Chambers - Patrick Lavoi - Jabar Westerman

Have proven that the Canadian Draft can produce starters in their rookie season to make an impact on offense and defense and not just special teams anymore.

For me Lavoi gets the nod over these the other three top rookies. He may have single handedly changed the way CFL teams starting offensive line ups look.
At 6'2" 240 he can not only Block out of the TE position but he has become a dangerous receiver. His size is something that CFL teams may look for when drafting a power CIS RB that will be converted to not just a FB but a TE allowing teams to have some Max protection without losing a receiver in the process.
For any team looking to emulate what the Als have done with their Offense there is free agent Daryl Stephanson, a skill player and 5,000 yard rusher at Windsor as a power back, Moving to FB in the CFL his offensive skills have gone mostly wasted up until this point and near the end of the season began taking this role with Hamilton. He also has the size at 6'2" 230. For any team looking to get ahead of the trend Stepahnson could have suddenly become a hot commodity as a free agent or he could be a steal for some team if no one is looking to use a main offensive set that includes a TE. Coming back to the CFL from the NCAA AUstin and his OC he brought with him from Cornell have a playbook that would involve a TE
