During an interview on The Fan 590 radio the other day, Ticat GM Marcel Desjardins placed a high priority on upgrading the receiving corps for 2007.
Given that the Ticats will have an entirely new coaching staff in 2007, it may be better to sign young import receivers with some previous NFL experience rather than rookies so that the receiving corps can quickly get on the same page.
As a few Ticat fans have pointed out on this website, there are many receivers out there in the marketplace. To get the ball rolling, here are a few available young import receivers with height who have either spent some time in the NFL on an active roster or a practice roster within the past year:
Tyrone Calico (6-4, 220 lbs, Nov 9/80), Middle Tennesee State, 4.42 speed, 38" vertical jumphttp://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/395937 http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/calico_tyrone
Todd Devoe (6-2, 198 lbs, Apr 5/80), Central Missouri State, 4.44 speed, 37" vertical jumphttp://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/397233 http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/devoe_todd
Ryan Hoag (6-2, 200 lbs, Nov 23/79), Gustavus Adolphus, 4.42 speed, 40" vertical jumphttp://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/395982 http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/hoag_ryan

Donovan Morgan (6-2, 195 lbs, Jul 29/82) Louisiana-Lafayette, speed and vertical jump stats n/ahttp://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/484882
no draft profile available
Darius Watts (6-2, 190 lbs, Dec 19/81), Marshall, 4.49 speed, 35" vertical jumphttp://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/493109 http://www.nfl.com/draft/profiles/darius_watts
Although Triandos Luke lacks the height of the other receivers, he was included in this list because his draft profile points to a strong work ethic. A good work ethic is also mentioned in the draft profile of Ryan Hoag.
Tyrone Calico and Jason McAddley both seem to have a good combination of size, speed and prior NFL experience.
And while the draft profiles of Todd Devoe, Jeris McIntyre and Darius Watts suggest that they are players that need to have more self-discipline, their talent may make them worth a look.
Ticat fans, and other CFL fans for that matter, are welcomed to add more receivers to this thread if desired.
