MONTREAL — The Montreal Alouettes have inked their fourth-round draft pick, receiver Chris Osei-Kusi, the team announced on Thursday.

Osei-Kusi, a Queen’s University product, was selected 30th overall in this year’s CFL Draft. The receiver attended the 2019 CFL Combine presented by New Era and posted the fastest 40-yard dash time of the weekend (4.47 seconds) and led all receivers in the bench press with 19 reps.

The six-foot-two, 197-pound Brampton, Ont. native spent four seasons as a Gael. He enjoyed a stellar season in 2017, where he led the OUA in touchdowns (seven) and was second in the OUA in catches (49) and yards (723). That performance earned him an OUA first-team all-star nod.

The Alouettes also announced the team has signed Canadian quarterback Graham Kelly from Mount Allison and released international linebacker Jason Hall.
