TORONTO -- Only one day remains until Commissioner Mark Cohon announces the first overall pick of the 2014 CFL Draft, and the speculation as to whose name will be called is as rampant as ever.

As opposed to the last three drafts where there was a clear-cut number one pick (2013 - Lindon Gaydosh, 2012 - Ben Heenan, 2011 Henoc Muamba), the 2014 class is jam-packed at the top, with several key prospects each worthy of being taken first.

Interestingly enough, it's likely that the most talented player in the group - McGill OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif - won't be taken until the later rounds, as he was grabbed in the 6th Round of the NFL Draft by the Kansas City Chiefs over the weekend.

According to CFL Draft Insider Justin Dunk, Duvernay-Tardif's CFL Draft stock is expected to drop, as it's expected he'll be down south during the 2014 campaign, and potentially beyond.

As a result, prospects such as University of Montreal OL David Foucault, Laval centre Pierre Lavertu, SFX receiver Devon Bailey and Simon Fraser offensive lineman Matthias Goossen, could see their stocks improve come Tuesday.

At the end of the day, however, anything can happen on Draft day, which is why we're asking you for your opinion once again.
