Who talked to who: CFL prospects and teams that interviewed them

The CFL combine provides front office personnel the opportunity to get some valuable face-to-face time with the top Canadian prospects which also shows a little insight into which players are of interest to teams around the league.

It’s always difficult to predict what will happen on draft day, but there is information to be gleaned from which particular teams a prospect interviewed with. It’s also a rough indicator of how popular a prospect is: players interviewing with every team are more likely be picked near the top of the draft. Worth noting that many teams talk to hometown prospects in their city, such as Calgary interviewing Dinos prospects.

With that in mind, here is a look at some of the big names in this year’s upcoming draft and who they interviewed with at the CFL combine in Winnipeg.
