Two Canadian linebackers headed to New York Giants rookie mini-camp

Canadian linebackers Christophe Mulumba and Frederic Chagnon have accepted invites to New York Giants rookie mini-camp.

Mulumba, who was selected in the third round, 22nd overall in the 2017 CFl draft by the Edmonton Eskimos, recorded 97 tackles, seven tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and two pass break-ups in 10 games during his senior year with the Black Bears. He racked up 347 career tackles while playing four seasons at Maine. The six-foot-one, 245-pounder was selected to the New England Football Writers’ All-New England team and garnered his third All-CAA (Colonial Athletic Conference) first-team selection after the 2016 campaign.

Chagnon, picked in the third round, 24th overall by the BC Lions, registered 22.5 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, one sack, four pass breakups, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception for a Montreal defence that gave up the fewest points (72) and yards per game (267.4) in Canadian university football last season.
