For every team across the Canadian Football League the focus has turned to the 2016 CFL Draft class – assessing the next group of Canuck talent is top priority.
Draft boards are just beginning to take shape and there could be a lot of change between now and the CFL Draft on May 10. With that said, let’s take a look at who might go in the first round at this point in time.
1. SSK Josiah St. John, OL Toronto (Oklahoma)
Linemen with the upside to play offensive tackle as a Canadian are rare.
2. MTL Arjen Colquhoun, DB Windsor, Ont. (Michigan State)
Some CFL teams view Colquhoun as a player who can step in and start immediately.
Charles Vaillancourt, OL Coaticook, Que. (Laval)
A number of scouts believe Vaillancourt is the most pro-ready blocker in the draft.
Philippe Gagnon, OL L’Ancienne-Lorette, Que. (Laval)
Yet another strong and tough Rouge et Or offensive lineman.
Jason Lauzon-Seguin, OL Pointe,Claire, Que. (Laval)
2015 first team CIS All-Canadian brings versatility up front.
