CFL holding (another) supplemental draft Thursday

There was one supplemental draft, then another and one more, but we’re not done yet. A fourth installment will be held on Thursday.

Yale product Austin Reuland, whose dad was born in Canada, will be available. For the first three years as a Bulldog, Reuland played receiver and switched to running back in 2015 after fellow Canadian and roommate Tyler Varga graduated and made the Indianapolis Colts roster. Reuland has older brothers, Konrad and Warren, who played NCAA football at Notre Dame and Stanford with Konrad moving on to the NFL where he lasted five seasons.

Over four years at Yale, Reuland made 20 catches for 214 yards and rushed 49 times for 183 yards while seeing time on special teams. Potential production was slowed by injuries. Earned the Jim Keppel Award as Yale’s most valuable offensive back in his senior season. The five-foot-11, 210 pounder runs a 4.59 40-yard time, 4.25 shuttle, 7.02 3-cone, 32.5-inch vertical and nine-foot, seven-inch broad jump.

Some CFL scouts see him as a poor man’s Anthony Coombs-type who can play in the slot and take the occasional hand-off. Experience on special teams should help Reuland’s chances of getting picked up.
