HOW OTTAWA FACTORS INTO THE 2013 DRAFT
The new Ottawa franchise will enter the league in 2014 but will make their first ever set of roster moves on Monday when they close out the first four rounds with selections.  They are, however, only eligible to select from the list of NCAA redshirt juniors which are listed below.  Two players on the list that may garner some headlines if not attention from other clubs prior to Ottawa's selection is Oregon's Bo Lokombo and Iowa's Nolan McMillian.  They sit #2 and #6 respectively on the latest edition of the CFL Scouting Beureau released last month.

WHO'S STOCK IS RISING AND WHO'S FALLING?

The final edition of the Scouting Bureau for this draft class was released on April 18 but a lot has changed even since then. Defensive Lineman Stefan Charles (2) and Offensive Lineman Matt Sewell (4) have both signed contracts with the Tennessee Titans which will likely force them to drop down into the later rounds if selected at all.  Many have said that a pair of Calgary Dinos, Linden Gaydosh and Mike Edem, may have risen their stocks in light of the aforementioned NFL signings combined with their performances at Combine.

Fan Comments
als rule
yes the draft logic/moves have changed with ottawa involved!! underclassman playing in the USA would be passed over early by the current 8 teams in prior years and then selected in the later rounds BUT this year if they pass early ottawa rough riders may draft the player they would have wanted to draft later!! this only occurs because ottawa can only draft NCAA underclassmen in the last position of the 1st 4 rounds!! which really puts a monkey wrench into how teams will game plan!!
