Western Oregon DL Court Hammond added to 2020 CFL draft

The 2020 CFL draft class just got bigger. Literally.

Court Hammond has been added to next year’s draft following a four-year career at Western Oregon. The six-foot-six, 275-pound defensive tackle is sure to draw the attention of scouts with his impressive frame, physicality, and high motor.

Hammond was born in Corvallis, Oregon but his mother and father have Canadian citizenship. As such, the six-foot-six defender has been granted national status by the CFL.

The converted tight end appeared in 23 games with the Wolves, recording 38 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, and one forced fumble.

Hammond has experience at defensive end in the American game but projects as a defensive tackle north of the border.
