Madani: Bombers in negotiations with Ekakitie, will draft him first overall

According to SportNet reporter and 3DownNation contributor Arash Madani, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have entered into negotiations with Iowa defensive lineman Faith Ekakitie and will draft him first overall in Sunday’s CFL Draft.

Ekakitie was the fifth ranked prospect in the final version of CFL scouting combine and 3DownNation’s Justin Dunk has him as the second-ranked defensive line prospect behind UCLA’s Eli Ankou, who signed with the Texans as a priority free agent.

The Bombers are likely to start two Canadians on the defensive line and Ekakitie could provide depth behind tackle Jake Thomas.
