ROUND 1

1. TORONTO
DREW DESJARLAIS
OL | WINDSOR

Desjarlais snuck up on many people — myself included — through the winter evaluation process, but he made a loud and clear statement at the combine in Toronto that he has the build, athleticism and mentality to be a first round pick.

Toronto needs to start adding national depth on the offensive line for the near future. In 2018 the Argos took offensive lineman Ryan Hunter from Bowling Green who spent the season in Kansas City with the Chiefs and was recently re-signed to stay there, meaning the Argos need a lineman ready to play sooner rather than later. Desjarlais is that player. He could fall to the back end of the first round but based on my feel for what teams value I have to think he’s in consideration for the Argos with the top pick.

2. HAMILTON
HERGY MAYALA
REC | UCONN

Despite all the noise surrounding the talented crop of USPORTS receivers (and deservedly so), this year there is no doubt in my mind after watching him play that UCONN’s Hergy Mayala is the most refined and ready-to-play CFL Draft eligible receiver in 2019.

Mayala has a unique combination of smooth suddenness to his game that few others can offer and could be the immediate replacement for last year’s top pick in Central Michigan receiver Mark Chapman should he never arrive in Hamilton.

3. EDMONTON
MATHIEU BETTS
DL | LAVAL

Some people at the CFL Combine were less than thrilled when Mathieu Betts pulled the plug on his appearance last second, which can sometimes hurt the draft stock. I don’t think it will with Betts.

His raw size and motor are undeniable and could easily lead to him being taken over Laurier’s Robbie Smith. If he goes to the Eskimos he would be working in tandem with Laurier alum Kwaku Boateng, creating one of the more dynamic young 1-2 punches in CFL national pass rushing.

Betts could fall due to his recent signing with the Chicago Bears or could go even higher. Each team will view him differently so I’ve simply placed him at third overall, where I believe he belongs without all the other variables swirling about.

4. WINNIPEG (VIA BC)
ZACH WILKINSON
OL | NORTHERN COLORADO

Wilkinson has been one of the steadiest risers of the 2019 combine season. Just days out from the CFL Draft this Northern Colorado blocker has impressed many, as evidenced by his historic jump in the final CFL Scouting Bureau Rankings.

5. WINNIPEG
KAION JULIEN-GRANT
REC | ST. FX

Going into the national combine I believed Kurleigh Gittens Jr. to be untouchable as the top U SPORTS receiver available. His performance at the national showcase didn’t change any of that for me, but after talking to some personnel types I get the sense they prefer Julien-Grant’s speed and physicality to Gittens’ elite route running.

Julien-Grant showed top end speed at the combine and I’d love to see him develop in Winnipeg, where all the attention at national receiver will be on Rashuan Simonise in his second year and Drew Wolitarsky’s special connection to quarterback Chris Streveler.

6. SASKATCHEWAN
ALEX FONTANA
OL | KANSAS

Toronto native Alex Fontana had an outstanding pro day with the Kansas Jayhawks recently after deciding to skip the CFL Combine in order to maximize his pro day performance.

Fontana measures in at 6-foot-1, 298 pounds. He benched 225 pounds 29 times, broad jumped eight feet and 10 inches, vertical jumped 27.5 inches, ran a 5.20 in the 40, a 4.84 in the shuttle and a 7.78 in the three-cone. Saskatchewan needs to add some youth and depth to the offensive line. Why not do it with a dominant interior lineman?

7. OTTAWA
JESSE GIBBON
OL | WATERLOO

Gibbon showed at the 2018 East-West Bowl that he could block the best available players at left tackle, including Laval’s Mathieu Betts. He won’t blow anyone away with top end athleticism, but when asked to win a 1-on-1 Gibbon rarely loses.

I have a hard time imagining Gibbon falling deep into the second round and with his hometown Ticats waiting in the wings early in Round 2 I could see Ottawa wanting to scoop him up to boost their own offensive line while subtracting from a division rival’s talent base.

8. CALGARY
KYLE SAXELID
OL | UNLV

Saxelid is the real deal. A size and athleticism combo capable of servicing spot duty just about anywhere across the offensive line. Calgary always feels like a team to me that drafts based on need and priority but always seems to take players with the best all around skill set and molds them into what’s needed. In Calgary on the offensive line that could mean anywhere for Saxelid, a challenge I believe he’d excel at.

ROUND 2

*Denotes territorial pick

1 (9). TORONTO
JUSTIN MCINNIS
REC | ARKANSAS STATE

McInnis is a unique body type with NCAA experience who could complement Llevi Noel and Jimmy Ralph’s skill sets nicely as a bit of a change of pace. Last year Toronto took Regis Cibasu who went back to school in Montreal. If they’d like to get return on investment now, McInnis alongside S.J. Green, Armanti Edwards and Derel Walker would be an intriguing lineup.

2 (10). HAMILTON (VIA MTL)
ZACK WILLIAMS
OL | MANITOBA

This is the final piece of the Mark Chapman trade with Montreal last season that saw Ryan Bomben exchanged for the top pick. Bomben served as a swing lineman while finding a stable home at right guard for a while in the Hamilton. Williams could challenge Darius Ciraco for that spot while also possibly serving in the near future as Hamilton’s sixth offensive lineman in their tight end set that June Jones loves so much — a role commonly held previously by another Bison alum in Landon Rice.

3 (11). HAMILTON
ROBBIE SMITH
DL | LAURIER

I believe Smith is a first round talent capable of cracking the top five of the draft, but his recent inexplicable drop in the scouting bureau rankings had me hesitant. In Hamilton, Smith would find solid footing as a young rotation piece while learning from Justin Capicciotti and Adrian Tracy.

4 (12). EDMONTON
KURLEIGH GITTENS JR.
REC | LAURIER

Kurliegh Gittens Jr. is the most accomplished receiver in the 2019 CFL Draft and I believe he’ll have success regardless of where he goes, but his polished route running and quick release, creating separation against man coverage, makes me believe he’d fit in well as competition for Western receiver Harry McMaster and recent NFL experienced addition Tevaun Smith.

5 (13). MONTREAL (VIA BC)
VINCENT DESJARDINS
DL | LAVAL

Finally, Montreal gets to make a selection. This pick coming via BC from the Tyrell Sutton trade is an important one for Kavis Reed, and he could do worse than acquiring a disruptive interior defensive lineman with Quebec roots.

6 (14). WINNIPEG
BRADY OLIVEIRA
RB | NORTH DAKOTA

Winnipeg has clearly made an investment in the running back position with nationals like Andrew Harris and Johnny Augustine, the latter having been acquired in 2018. Oliveira is a standout runner with great burst, even through contact, who calls Winnipeg home. A home run second round pick that could backfill when Harris needs a breather once every 10,000 carries.

7 (15). SASKATCHEWAN
MALEEK IRONS
RB | OHIO

When one NCAA back goes I expect the next will follow very quickly. Irons’ downhill mentality should fit in well to what Stephen McAdoo is attempting to build offensively in Regina.

8 (16). MONTREAL (VIA OTT)
CHRIS OSEI-KUSI
REC | QUEEN’S

Osei-Kusi blew people away at the national combine. Be it through his 19 reps on the bench press, interviewing with a maturity beyond his years or running the fastest 40-yard dash of the CFL Combine, Osei-Kusi was one of the biggest risers in attendance at the national showcase. Montreal needs to add playmakers and become more explosive. My belief in placing Chris to the Alouettes here is he could help quicker than with any other team.

One personnel man I spoke to said he believes Osei-Kusi could fall to the third or fourth round as a developmental project who needs to refine his route running. I have a hard time believing that. If Montreal doesn’t overthink it and he’s available in the second round, I don’t see why he isn’t worth the choice, especially considering their recent work in offensive line roster development.

9 (17). CALGARY
BRAYDEN LENIUS
REC | NEW MEXICO

Lenius is an exceptional athlete who has gone through an unorthodox evolution from receiver at Washington to tight end at New Mexico. With some questioning his blocking ability at the national combine despite his size, this one will be all about fit and I could see Dickey becoming a tweener fullback/receiver type weapon for Dave Dickenson’s Stampeders offence.

Dickenson and receivers coach Pete Costanza could shape Lenius into either style and I have a hard time imagining he wouldn’t be a productive player in Calgary.

10 (18). TORONTO*
MATTHEW BOATENG
DB | FRESNO STATE

Ahh yes, the territorial picks. Boateng is undersized and wants to be a true cover man. Where better to prove himself than in his hometown for a defensive minded head coach in Corey Chamblin?

11 (19). MONTREAL*
PHILLIPE DION
LB | WESTERN

A physical interior linebacker capable of contributing on special teams quickly, this Blainville, Que. native would be quickly celebrated by Alouettes fans as their first territorial selection since 1984.

ROUND 3

1 (20) . TORONTO
JONATHAN KONGBO
DL | TENNESSEE

Kongbo suffered a season-ending ACL injury against Auburn last season but upon full recovery has every bit of talent you would imagine from a Canadian playing in the SEC.

Recent reports have Kongbo on the fast track to recovery and accelerating faster each day. In Toronto he could be patient while learning the CFL ropes from veteran pass rusher Shawn Lemon and could be an eye-opening player for Argos fans after Labour Day 2019.

2 (21). MONTREAL
SHAI ROSS
REC | MANITOBA

Montreal needs some pop. Some burst. Some excitement! Similar to the Osei-Kusi pick, Shai Ross can add that. Both men are different players though. Osei-Kusi is a powerful strider while Ross adds that quick underneath route running flashed by names like Demski and Coombs.

Ross can jump out of the gym and run away from man coverage to help out Antonio Pipkin. He strikes me as someone who will get into a camp, earn his stripes and make a big memorable play in the pre-season, leaving Montreal’s staff little choice but to dress him Week 1.

3 (22). HAMILTON
JAMEL LYLES
RB | MANITOBA

With Mercer Timmis signing in free agency with the Argos and Sean Thomas-Erlington expected to get a much heavier workload this season in the backfield, I believe the Ticats could be in the market for another national running back. Lyles is the best available from U SPORTS and if left to this point in the draft he would be hard to turn down.

4 (23). TORONTO (VIA EDM)
CONNOR GRIFFITHS
DL | UBC

One of the more refined interior pass rushers in this draft alongside Desjardins, Griffiths would do well as an important young piece of a defensive line group developing together. He could be the ‘play now’ contributor to spell the Argos’ national line depth until Kongbo is ready.

5 (24). HAMILTON (VIA BC)
SHANE RICHARDS
OL | OKLAHOMA STATE

Richards left the CFL Combine after refusing to test or compete, but he has undeniable size and Big 12 experience. He’s a good fit for Ottawa after the loss of SirVincent Rogers to Edmonton in free agency, but the Ticats add Richards here as a young athletic tackle to pair alongside 2018 East Division Most Outstanding Lineman Brandon Revenberg.

6 (25). WINNIPEG
NICOLA KALINIC
FB/REC | YORK

The Bombers LOVE their fullbacks and Kalinic appears raw but primed to adapt perfectly to the swing receiver role while learning from CFL special teams legend Mike Miller.

7 (26). BC (VIA SSK)
NATE ANDERSON
DL | MISSOURI

The Lions lost Shawn Lemon to Toronto in free agency. Why not add Anderson to match their recent picks of interior defensive linemen like Junior Luke of Montreal and Julien Laurent of Georgia State?

Davone Claybrooks should be able to pair Mike Reilly’s passing attack with all kinds of unique personnel pressure packages on defence in BC, which could shake up the West in a big way. Anderson plays well into that theory and has the attitude to fight for playing time right now.

8 (27). OTTAWA
MALCOM LEE
DB | UBC

Malcom Lee is the most CFL pro-style DB in this draft. He already had some questions about fit, then had his A sample test positive for ‘Ligandrol’. If his B sample comes back positive as well, Lee will be subject to a 365-day suspension, meaning he won’t be eligible for the 2019 season or U SPORTS with UBC but can still be drafted.

I honestly don’t think teams will care all that much. They wait a year for players all the time.

9 (28). CALGARY
HAKEEM JOHNSON
DB | WESTERN

Calgary lost Tunde Adeleke to Hamilton in free agency and Johnson showed out at the Ontario Regional Combine, leading to a national combine invite. His recovery speed is elite which should fit well as a safety and special teams contributor in Calgary.

ROUND 4

1 (29). TORONTO
THOMAS GRANT
DL | ACADIA

Grant has the size to be a pro, he just needs to refine his skill set in a professional environment. I believe Toronto would be a great fit for him to develop into his AUS All-Star body.

2 (30). MONTREAL
TARIQ LACHANCE
DL | MANITOBA

LaChance was a Winnipeg Rifle, he has special teams experience, has played fullback and has great length as a defensive lineman capable of keeping blockers off his chest. These are all aspects that should create interest Thursday.

3 (31). CALGARY (VIA HAM)
MICHAEL O’CONNOR
QB | UBC

I have a hard time imagining O’Connor getting past the fourth round. Even with plenty of talent available at ‘play now’ positions, his value is too great, especially if the Canadian quarterback ratio rules are tweaked in the near future.

The simple fact is this: the ball comes out of his hand in a special way and he will be driven to succeed as a pro regardless of early assigned depth chart role. Whoever drafts O’Connor could be drafting not just a passer but history, as he has all the potential required to break through for Canadian quarterbacks everywhere and make his name remembered for a long time.

Dave Dickenson sees these kinds of things; Calgary would be the best place for O’Connor to develop behind Bo Levi Mitchell while preparing to challenge the throne.

4 (32). EDMONTON
STAVROS KATSANTONIS
DB | UBC

One U SPORTS coach told me they believe Katsantonis actually has a better chance to succeed in the CFL than UBC teammate Malcom Lee thanks to a natural fit as a rangy, ball-hawking playmaker at free safety, whereas Lee will have to evolve on the fly. Stavros has the advantage of being an experienced free safety where many other defensive backs, like Lee, will have to pick up the nuances of playing centre field. He is facing a one-year suspension for a positive drug test pending results of the B sample.

5 (33). BC
MALIK RICHARDS
REC | MOUNT ALLISON

Malik Richards is a difficult evaluation. His raw athleticism and pass snatching suggests a top-20 pick, and you can’t discount him for not having more success based on the passing offence he played in at Mount Allison, but Richards still found productivity with 85 catches and eight touchdowns over the last two seasons of AUS play.

6 (34). WINNIPEG
REID MCMORRIS
OL | MANITOBA

Overshadowed by some of the bigger-name recent Bisons selections, don’t sleep on McMorris’ ability to create movement. The Bombers should know better than anyone what he’s about.

7 (35). SASKATCHEWAN
EVAN MACHIBRODA
DL | SASKATCHEWAN

He’s as prairie as prairie gets and was one of my favourite sit down interviews at the national scouting combine. Machibroda needs to be a Rider. He just does.

It’s the perfect situation to allow continued development while he completes his degree in engineering. He will not be in a CFL uniform this season thanks to school but he’s worth the wait for the Riders.

8 (36). OTTAWA
JESHRUN ANTWI
RB | CALGARY

Ottawa’s selection of Alberta’s Ed Ilnicki at running back prompted this one. With Ilnicki gone in short order and only Greg Morris and Brendan Gillanders in-house, I believe Ottawa could be ready to invest again.

Antwi is a strong and quick runner capable of sticking his nose in on pass protection and would add great variety in the shovel and screen game.

9 (37). CALGARY
SAMUEL THOMASSIN
OL | LAVAL

Thomassin’s prestige and film don’t lie. He’s ready to contribute quickly as a physical inside presence. Calgary’s draft should be all about Bo, and Thomassin would be a welcome addition.

ROUND 5

1 (38). TORONTO
VINCENT ROY
OL | SHERBROOKE

A solid stout interior lineman who can add depth now and develop behind fellow rookie Desjarlais and as knowledgeable a group of interior nationals as there is in the CFL.

2 (39). MONTREAL
ERIC STARCZALA
OL | GUELPH

Just a solid all-around building block on a Montreal Alouettes offensive line that suddenly has top-end NCAA talent in Tyler Johnstone from Oregon and last year’s second overall selection Trey Rutherford from UCONN.

3 (40). EDMONTON (VIA HAM)
HUNTER KARL
REC | CALGARY

Hunter Karl is so under the radar it’s crazy. He appeared in seven of eight games in 2017 with 767 yards on 50 catches, including seven touchdowns, good for third in Canada West.

I believe Karl could be the steal of the draft with five years of hindsight. Don’t be surprised if Karl becomes a Sinopoli-like contributor on a very talented and suddenly rebuilt Edmonton roster. Can you imagine a kid from Okotoks, Alta. hoisting the Grey Cup while wearing green and gold in the stadium where he played all his college ball come November of 2019?

What a sight it would be for his family and friends.

4 (41). EDMONTON
JACOB JANKE
DB/LB | YORK

Speed, physicality and mentality. A perfect national depth pick to improve the Eskimos’ all-around roster.

5 (42). BC
MAURICE SIMBA
OL | CONCORDIA

The simple reality here is if a team is in absolute love with size and potential, Simba will go in the top-20. If it’s technical prowess, you’re in search of other players that will be taken much earlier. He has an incredible frame that looks at home in a CFL huddle day one of training camp.

6 (43). WINNIPEG
CHARLES NWOYE
DL | LANGLEY RAMS

With length and a really quick first step for his size, Charles Nwoye is this year’s pleasant surprise from the regional combine ranks. I’d love to see him learn how to refine that length and athleticism in the same meeting rooms as new Bombers acquisition Willie Jefferson.

7 (44). SASKATCHEWAN
LUKAS REDGUARD
DL | CONCORDIA

A solid, low-centre-of-gravity interior defensive lineman with really refined hands and the best motor of any pass rusher from his regional combine.

8 (45). OTTAWA
JAMIE HARRY
DB | OTTAWA

I haven’t been able to get a true tell on Harry’s game other than to say he’s a very physical and quick-to-arrive defender. A day one special teamer with a chance to develop alongside fellow Ottawa college alum Justin Howell.

9 (46). CALGARY
MICHAEL SANELLI
DL | CONCORDIA

Sanelli isn’t a Derek Wiggan type of producer early on but I could see the Stamps finding value in this regional combine call up.

 

ROUND 6

1 (47). TORONTO
FRASER SOPIK
LB/DB | WESTERN

Sopik is perhaps the player most stuck between a rock and a hard place in the 2019 draft. Too small to be a linebacker, too slow to be a true defensive back and no real man coverage skills. Who cares. The kid can straight up ball. It’s often all about fit but this pick is one made in faith that you’re just getting a great football player.

The Argos took Evan Foster from Manitoba a couple years ago who was in a similar spot between defensive end and outside linebacker. He’s made it work on special teams admirably alongside Nelkas Kwemo, the exact antithesis of the build found in Foster or Sopik.

2 (48). MONTREAL
KALEM BEAVER
REC | OTTAWA

Undersized but with great shake and elite acceleration in a straight line, if the Alouettes want to invest in Canadian pass catchers as suggested above, Beaver is a great depth pick. His true challenge will come in finding a way to contribute on special teams in order to make a dress roster.

3 (49). BC (VIA HAM)
BRAD LYONS
DL | SIMON FRASER

Brad Lyons was one of the more impressive pass rushers from the Western Regional Combine which, combined with his athletic testing and length, should place him comfortably inside the top 50.

4 (50). EDMONTON
ZEPH FRASER
REC | GUELPH

A possible replacement for Nate Behar who left in free agency to Ottawa, Fraser posted athletic testing numbers worthy of a higher pick, especially when considered alongside production, but it’s a jam packed receiver class.

5 (51). BC
CHRIS MERCHANT
QB | WESTERN

I just want Chris Merchant to get the best possible place to develop and enjoy the game. He’s earned that through a stellar U SPORTS career at Western where he led the Mustangs at the most crucial playoff moments with big throws and smart decisions.

One U SPORTS coach I spoke to actually believes his ceiling is higher than Micheal O’Connor’s based on the limitations of Western’s passing game, which rarely allowed Merchant to flourish in the type of wide open system others have prospered from.

Mike Reilly. Coastline. BC it is.

6 (52). WINNIPEG
BEN VON MUEHLDORFER
LB | ST. FX

Another regional combine standout, Von Muehldorfer is a solid backup middle or weak side linebacker who can compete on specials immediately if his speed improves.

7 (53). SASKATCHEWAN
GORDON WHYTE
LB | ST. FX

X-men ride together. Gordon Whyte has a well rounded skill set and should find a very similar day one role to his Antigonish, N.S. teammate.

8 (54). OTTAWA
DEREK DUFAULT
DL | MANITOBA

One of the best sleeper picks in this draft, Dufault has powerful hips on contact that allow a wide variety of pass rush moves from inside out rip moves to bull rushes and more.

9 (55). CALGARY
JESSE WALKER
REC | MANITOBA

Walker has a route runner’s athleticism with quick cuts and a brilliant first step. What most impressed me at the 2019 Western Regional Combine was his prepared approach to route definition. He knew where he wanted to get to and how to get there with some creative thought.

 

ROUND 7

1 (56). TORONTO
MALCOLM THOMPSON
DB | LAURIER

A big body capable of helping on special teams quickly.

2 (57). MONTREAL
CEDRIC JOSEPH
RB | WESTERN

A value pick for the Alouettes. Joseph should go much earlier but his national combine felt uninspiring.

3 (58). HAMILTON
JOB REINHART
LB | GUELPH

Good bloodlines and classic backup linebacker and special teams contributor body type.

4 (59). EDMONTON
COLIN JEROME
OL | GUELPH

Think University of Alberta’s Justin Sorensen. Jerome is an undersized centre type that showed a superior level of physicality during Ontario regional 1-on-1s.

5 (60). BC
BLAKE WHITELEY
FB | UBC

A true mystery. Former Texas Longhorns tight end who was originally in the 2018 CFL Draft before landing at UBC and producing less than expected. I’m not sure what his CFL fit is but I’m excited to see him develop and think being back in BC is the right spot.

6 (61). WINNIPEG
COLTON HUNCHAK
REC | YORK

A depth receiver pick with solid hands and above average route running.

7 (62). TORONTO (VIA SSK)
GABRIEL POLAN
RB | SHERBROOKE

Polan could be off the board much earlier with his downhill running style and high production with the Sherbrooke Vert et Or, but fit is the important measurement here. As a hybrid back alongside Declan Cross and Simon Gingras-Gagnon, Polan could flourish.

8 (63). OTTAWA
JAY DEARBORN
DB | CARLETON

All the athleticism in the world to cover sideline to sideline in space, just not a true every down defensive back at any position. Let the REDBLACKS take this Sydenham High School grad from north of nearby Kingston, Ont. and develop him on special teams to be a game changer alongside fellow freaky special teamer, Laval’s Marco Dubois drafted by GM Marcel Desjardins last year.

9 (64). CALGARY
PHIL ILOKI
REC | CARLETON

Can’t teach size and speed but you can teach an improved approach to route discipline. Iloki deserves to get into a camp and develop while finding every way possible to contribute in the pre-season in hopes of laying down quality film that other teams might jump on should he become available.

 

ROUND 8

1 (65). HAMILTON (VIA TOR)
DALE CUMMINGS
OL | MONTANA STATE NORTHERN

A stout centre with size limitations but a solid developmental piece for Ted Laurent to work on against the scout team.

2 (66). MONTREAL
ERIC BLAKE
LB | MCMASTER

Ability to positively impact all special teams units and cover with speed. If he can put some healthy weight on, Blake might become a sneaky great depth weak side linebacker.

3 (67). HAMILTON
LERONE ROBINSON
REC | SAINT MARY’S

Not an overwhelming physical presence but tall and long enough to accentuate his wide strides. What I loved about Robinson’s game was the refusal to allow natural length to negatively influence his crisp route running.

4 (68). EDMONTON
DANIEL OMARA
OL | CARLETON

A massive, lumbering tackle, Omara will make for a good project for whoever decides to invest in him Thursday.

5 (69). BC
JESSE AMANKWAA
RB | YORK

A thick and powerful runner that is likely best in a Rolly Lumbala type role.

6 (70). WINNIPEG
JAYLAN GUTHRIE
OL | GUELPH

Guthrie is a mystery to many. All it takes is one team to fall in love, and many teams appeared to after he dominated pass rush 1-on-1s at the Ontario Regional Combine. In Winnipeg he can develop behind top-end blocking talent.

7 (71). SASKATCHEWAN
WESLEY LEWIS
REC | HOUSTON BAPTIST

A giraffe in pads. If you can teach Wesley Lewis to catch more than a fade you’ve got something in Saskatchewan.

8 (72). OTTAWA
JORDAN LYONS
RB | MCMASTER

Under-the-radar productive player who was the steadiest back at the 2018 East-West Bowl before being overshadowed by the explosion of Manitoba’s Jamel Lyles.

9 (73). CALGARY
JONATHAN HARKE
OL | ALBERTA

The 2019 combine bench press champion deserves the right to make a camp and try to earn his CFL stripes.
