Brandyn Bartlett selected by Riders in supplemental draft

National linebacker Brandyn Bartlett has been selected by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Thursday’s CFL supplemental draft.

The Riders gave up a fifth round pick in the 2018 CFL draft for the six-foot-one, 230-pounder, who started for three seasons at Tusculum College in Tennessee, making 224 tackles, nine tackles for loss, six forced fumbles, four sacks, four pass break-ups, two fumbles recoveries and one interception in 31 games

The 23-year-old had a tryout with the Atlanta Falcons in advance of the NFL draft, but he went unselected and has been working with former NFL and CFL linebacker Rennie Curran.

Born in Vancouver, Washington, Bartlett went to high school in Georgia but can play in the CFL as a national because his father was born in Canada, making his son eligible for dual citizenship.
