Canadian quarterback a late addition to the CFL draft

The CFL has made another late addition to 2018 CFL Draft – and this one is a Canadian quarterback.

Syracuse University pivot Zack Mahoney has been included on the list of eligible players for Thursday night’s pick-fest. The 6-foot-2, 192 pounder is originally from LaGrange Park, Illinois but has dual citizenship. 20 NFL teams were at the Syracuse pro day and one CFL franchise.

Mahoney played one season of junior college ball before transferring to Syracuse and making the team as a walk-on. He began as the fifth-stringer but started four games, then served as the back up his last two seasons. Overall, Mahoney played in 25 career games, starting nine, and threw for 1,949 yards and 18 touchdowns against 10 interceptions with a 53 percent completion percentage. He added 100 carries for 242 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
