TORONTO -- With Monday's CFL Draft only hours away, CFL.ca takes one more look at the final Scouting Bureau rankings, as voted on by scouts, player personnel directors and general managers from the league’s eight teams.
 
Bo Lokombo, a 6’3”, 233 pound linebacker from the University of Oregon, remained the top prospect heading into the draft.
 
Rounding out the top five are University of Regina defensive lineman Stefan Charles (2), University of Calgary defensive lineman Linden Gaydosh (3), McMaster University offensive lineman Matt Sewell (4) and Eastern Michigan defensive lineman Andy Mulumba (5).
 
The players who made the biggest jump after a strong showing at the CFL Combine presented by Reebok were University of Calgary linebacker Mike Edem who jumped four spots to 10 and Universite de Laval wide receiver Seydou Junior Haidara who appears on the ranking for the first time at 11.

well interesting 3 new players make top 15!! OT sewell drops 2 to 4 and will be the 1st pick in the draft by Hamilton!! RIGHT AUSTIN? montreal with the 3rd and 5th picks in the 1st round can grab either DT Charles or gaydosh or both!! LB lokombo who pulls the surprise of the draft and takes him earlier instead of later? montreal's focus needs to be on defence and as a result is DHB Robertson their 2nd round pick?

Can't make any predictions until the NFL draft is over.. Too many of these players have potential to either be drafted or sign free agent contacts with the NFL. Bad for the CFL, but it shows that theres a lot of Canadian talent out there!

You're REALLY dreaming if you think Gaydosh will still be available for Montreal! If the Ticats don't pick him, the Bombers will assuming there is no trading of picks! LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!
