    There will be lots of additions after the Regional Combines.

    Wonder why the top 2 RBs - from US college ball - Irons (Ohio) and Oliveira (N Dakaota) are not going? - declined to concentrate on an NFL shot? Same with receiver Hergy Mayala (U Conn) ?

      Hope we can snag a good receiver in the draft. Our NI receivers have really fallen over the last four or so years.

            3 tight end types (Savard, Kalinic, Dickey) amongst the 10 receivers invited so far ???; and yet no CFL teams deploy a true tight end, and even if the position of H-back is considered, only a couple of teams (Ottawa & the Argos) do much with that position now anyways?. Guess they can have a decent role on special teams?

                I think a few will be added after the Regionals - like DT Evan Machibroda & DB Payton Hall from the Huskies.

                  Or maybe also cause the guy is a very good receiver prospect (i believe set the CIS single season receptions # mark with Laurier)' also an all-star punt/kick returner.

                      every catch they could play the meow mix song and if at home you need to take a shot. Never combine with the Rod Black game. Very dangerous.

                        Just over a month after the French Federation of American Football, FFFA, agreed to work together with the Canadian Football League to provide new opportunities for players, the FFFA announced the names of four players who will be attending the National CFL Combine in Toronto March 22-24.

                        Benjamin Plu, a wide receiver for the Thonon Black Panthers along with defensive lineman Valentin Gnahoua, who plays with the Berlin Rebels in the German Football League. running back Asnnel Robo, (University of Montreal) and linebacker Maxime Rouyer, (McGill University) will compete with the best Canadian prospects for spot on the rosters of one of the nine CFL teams.

                        Two CFL teams already have French players on their rosters. Boris Bede, originally from Toulon, France, is a kicker for the Montreal Alouettes while fellow kicker Anthony Alix is on the roster of the BC Lions.

                        The combine, which already showcases top Canadianprospects from U SPORTS, or Canadian university football, Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)will also feature participation from a number of prospects from Germany.

                        The National CFL Combine presented by New Era in Toronto at Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport and Varsity Stadium bubble is where players will undergo medical examinations, performance, strength and speed tests, on-field football drills and team interviews over the two day combine in front of general managers, coaches and scouts from all teams.

                        The Canadian Football League reached historic agreements with a number of European federations last month which also included discussions on creating better pathways for more young Canadianplayers to continue playing in Europe once their university or junior football careers have ended and for aspiring European football players to gain an education and opportunities to play football in the Canadian university system.

                        In addition to France, CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie met with the leaders of federations fromGermany, Austria, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark in a pioneering effort to raise awareness of the Canadian Football League and expand borders for football players.

                          The CFL draft is becoming a big crap shoot. So many top prospects are opting to try the NFL and to the surprise of some they are making it. Others who became final cuts seem reluctant to try the CFL. Shepley is a one example. The draft must be a real challenge to the CFL GMs and scouting system.

                            Reduce the ratio by half.

                            The grossly inflated cost of good Canadian players will decline, as will CFL roster costs generally. Fewer of them will hold out for an NFL opportunity if they knew that returning to Canada wasn’t a lock.

                              Black is clearly unaware that those 2 players are from France.
