Taman and Miller have all but said that they are looking at the defensive side of the ball in the early rounds of this draft.
I am assuming that TO will draft Cory Greenwood number 1 overall but if they do not, one could probably put money on it that the Riders will take him at number 2. If Greenwood goes number 1, I think the Riders then will take LB Joash Gesse. Although he is not participating in most of the drills at e-camp because he is still recuperating due to knee surgery, I think he will be the Riders first pick. Athletically, when he is healthy, he is right on par with Cory Greenwood. Shomari Williams just does not have the speed that teams are looking at in the CFL for linebacker (Queen's figured that out quickly so they used him at rush end), so I think the Riders may pass on him. Williams is okay as a rush end, but just so-so as a linebacker. He does not have the speed or the pass coverage ability that folks in the CFL like in their linebackers.
Number 4 pick if he is still available, will likely be Eddie Steele. I am certain that Joe Eppele will be BC's pick at 3, which will suit Taman and Miller just fine. Eppele may be TO's pick overall, which I hope it is, which in that case, the Riders will certainly grab Greenwood. Greenwood is supposedly even a better prospect than Dylan Barker when he went first overall two years ago.
But overall I think the Riders will take Joash Gesse and Eddie Steele at number 2 and number 4.
Later on in Round 5, I think the Riders could take two U of S boys... Patrick Neufeld and Grant Shaw. Miller said he would like to draft an O'lineman and if a good one is available in the fifth round, they will grab one which could be Neufeld. Grant Shaw would be an extremely versatile special teams player. He was an all star at corner back and he was also the U of S's kicker. He could be Jamie Boreham's replacement.
