Ticats sign fourth overall selection, DL Connor McGough

Canadian defensive lineman Connor McGough has signed with the Ticats after Hamilton selected him fourth overall in the 2017 CFL draft, per sources.

Tiger-Cats sources feel the 21-year-old will make an impact early in his pro career. He could team up with fellow Canuck Justin Capicciotti to form a national option at defensive end for Hamilton.

From 2013-16, the 21-year-old played in 26 games for the University of Calgary Dinos making 67 total tackles, 17 tackles for loss and nine sacks. McGough, who checks in at six-foot-two, 251-pounds, was “the best guy on our board” according to vice president of football operations, Kent Austin.
