Riders dive into draft w/ Lake Korte-Moore at third overall

TORONTO — The Saskatchewan Roughriders have selected UBC defensive lineman Lake Korte-Moore with the third overall pick in the 2023 CFL Draft.

Through four seasons at UBC, Korte-Moore established himself as a defensive presence for the Thunderbirds.

“I think he’s an explosive playmaker. I don’t think he’s reached the top of his abilities yet,” TSN’s Marshall Ferguson said of Korte-Moore.
