Great news! The third string QB race got a lot more interesting. Leak definitely has the attributes to develop into a CFL QB -- running Meyer's offense in Florida is no picnic and that gives me confidence that on the cerebral side he's capable of learning intricate systems.
He will have to adjust to the vagaries of the Canadian game, particularly the game speed as it pertains to coverages. He's going to be somewhat raw, but with his pedigree, it's definitely worth a look. Depth at QB is vital in the Canadian game and you want the clipboard guy to be evolving into a potential starter in the medium term. Many pivots (including Danny Mac) paid their dues in that kind of scenario before getting their break and running with it.
Chuck Ealey's experience is probably the closest thing to a leadpipe cinch out of the blocks the Cats have had (lights-out college career right into rookie stardom)...Zuger's smash debut at QB was after coming up here as a DB, so Leak might be able to accomplish a similar splash as Chuck with the right timing, guile, and luck.
Regardless. if camp works out well for him, he's in a good place behind Casey and Richie at a minumum to get acclimatized to Canadian ball. Best of luck to him!
