Mock Protected List: Calgary Stampeders

Mark Stephen |

Quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell: His youth and productivity make him the QB of the future in Calgary
UNPROTECTED QBs: Kevin Glenn, Drew Tate.


Nik Lewis – Slotback: Coming off the first serious injury of his career, Lewis is still a great pass catcher and a devastating blocker. Likely has another couple of productive years left in him.

Maurice Price – Wide Receiver: Price is a perennial candidate for Fastest-Man-in-CFL award.  His blinding speed netted him 57 catches in 2013.

Marquay McDaniel – Slotback: McDaniel filled in for Nik Lewis and had career highs in 2013.  He’s a great blocker in his own right as well.

Charleston Hughes – Defensive End: The league sack leader in 2013 presents matchup problems for every other team in the league.

Stanley Bryant – Offensive Lineman: Bryant helped keep Stampeder quarterbacks upright in 2013, while playing left tackle.

Deron Mayo – Linebacker: Great sideline-to-sideline quickness. Also a blossoming special teams star.

Jeff Fuller – Wide Receiver: The late addition to the Stamps’ roster in 2013 possesses intriguing combination of size and reach.

Brandon Smith – Defensive back: Who is the best receiver on the opposite side of the field?  Whoever it is, Brandon Smith will be there covering him all night long.

Micah Johnson – Defensive tackle: Johnson battled injuries in 2013, but was productive when in the lineup.

Keon Raymond – Linebacker: Raymond’s a versatile player who can be plugged in just about anywhere.  Well-respected dressing room leader.


Jon Cornish – Running back: The reigning CFL MOP is in the prime of his career. It might be the easiest decision in the entire league to keep him off-limits.

Rene Paredes – Kicker: The Concordia product is coming off one of the greatest kicking seasons in CFL history.

Brad Sinopoli – Slotback: Sinopoli made switch to receiver from QB with relative ease. His great athletic ability is something the Stamps should cherish.

Brett Jones – Offensive Lineman: The 2013 Most Outstanding Rookie seems poised for a long, productive career.

Jon Gott – Offensive Lineman: He’s a tenacious battler in the trenches and a dependable blocker for Cornish.

Spencer Wilson – Offensive Lineman: The local product has been making tremendous strides, allowing his athletic ability to catch up to his hulking size.
