Two players earn CFL combine invites out of Denmark international combine

Running back Michel ‘Junior’ Konate from Denmark and defensive lineman Leo Krafft from Norway are coming to Canada.

Both players had strong enough performances at the international combine in Copenhagen, Denmark on Saturday to earn invites to the CFL combine set for March 26-28 in Toronto.

The pair were among 10 players who took part in the combine conducted in association with the Danish Dansk Amerikansk Fodbold Forbund (DAFF) and the Norwegian Amerikansk Fotball Norge (AFN).

The full list of players invited will be released after combines in Brazil and Mexico in March.

The following players have been invited to the combine to date.
