The Canadian Football League will hold a supplemental draft on Wednesday.

Colorado State product Jake Bennett is the lone player available. He started 42 games at centre for the Rams after redshirting and finished his NCAA career by being named an All-Mountain West first-teamer in 2017.

The regular draft took place on May 2 and by league rules, supplemental drafts can happen any time in the 60 days following. Supplemental drafts are held when players miss the deadline for entry into the main CFL draft, usually due to citizenship issues.

Each CFL team has the option to “bid” on the player by forfeiting a selection in the 2020 CFL Draft and the process continues based on waiver priority – the reverse order of the 2019 draft – until the highest choice is identified. The team who puts up that pick (or possesses the top waiver priority) gets the player.
