Last week we released our top 25 CFL draft prospect list and this week we’re taking a look at the next 25 players who are up for grabs.
It should be noted that these rankings are based on talent alone. Though we’ve acknowledged drug infractions and injury concerns below, we wanted to rank players purely based on skill.
Enjoy our rankings and check back soon for more draft coverage throughout the month of April.
26) K/P Marc Liegghio, Western
Arguably the best specialist prospect of the last five years, capable of placekicking, punting, and kicking off at the CFL level. You can read his full draft profile here.
27) FB Liam O’Brien, Saint Mary’s
The converted quarterback will contribute in several ways at the pro level, including fullback, H-back, tight end, and on special teams. You can read his full draft profile here.
28) LB Brian Harelimana, Montreal
2019 second-team All-Canadian whose size (six-foot-two, 230 pounds) and skill set as a pass rusher could get him reps at defensive end.
29) REC Rysen John, Simon Fraser
30) RB Kayden Johnson, York
Once-dominant ball carrier who missed virtually all of 2019 due to injury. A former gold medalist in the heptathalon and 60-metre hurdles at six-foot-three and 245 pounds.
31) K/P Dante Brown, Fort Hays State
Brown went 47-of-56 (83.9 percent) with the Tigers on field goals, many of which came from beyond 50 yards.
32) DL Andrew Seinet-Spaulding, McGill
He lacks an elite frame at six-foot, 285 pounds but was a one-man wrecking crew in 2019, winning the prestigious J.P. Metras Trophy.
33) RB Dion Pellerin, Waterloo
Has deceptive speed for a 225-pound ball carrier. Likely won’t get many carries in the CFL, but should contribute heavily as a fullback and on special teams.
34) OL Coulter Woodmansey, Guelph
A violent blocker who lacks finesse but plays to the echo of the whistle. You can read his full draft profile here.
35) OL Jakub Szott, McMaster
A fleet-footed interior blocker who is a prime candidate to move from guard to centre.
36) REC Kian Schaffer-Baker, Guelph
Lacks elite production with the Gryphons, but runs and jumps well for his six-foot-three, 203-pound frame.
37) OL Mattland Riley, Saskatchewan
Stocky interior blocker who packs a mean club against opposing pass rushers.
38) DL Nicholas Dheilly, Saskatchewan
Lanky pass rusher who should rotate at defensive end while also contributing on special teams.
39) DB Nolan Putt, McMaster
Played boundary cornerback with the Marauders but should contribute as a safety and special teamer in the CFL.
40) DL Reshaan Davis, Ottawa
Old school defensive end who plays well against the run.
41) LB Aaron Chabaylo, Alberta
Big-bodied linebacker who put up 147 tackles in three seasons with the Golden Bears.
42) FB Jonathan Femi-Cole, Western
Undersized fullback (six-foot and 212 pounds) who should contribute on special teams and as a change-of-pace ball carrier.
43) OL Theren Churchill, Regina
25-year-old blocker who moves better than he tests. Will likely move from tackle to guard at the CFL level.
44) LB Kurtis Gray, Waterloo
Long-framed defender who projects as a CFL safety due to his six-foot-two, 195-pound frame.
45) DL Rossini Sangjong-Djabome, York
Athletic defensive end who should contribute heavily on special teams while rotating along the defensive line.
46) LB Malik Tyne, Towson
Converted basketball player who reminds some scouts of Boseko Lokombo. Could potentially line-up at defensive end, linebacker or safety.
47) DL Gabe Dansereau, Merrimack
Undersized defensive tackle at six-foot, 265 pounds but had a nice showing at the CGS Small School Showcase.
48) OL Jonathan Zamora, St. FX
A stout blocker in run and pass protection. One of the few centres in this year’s draft.
49) DL Benoit Marion, Montreal
Big-bodied defensive end who put up nine tackles for loss and six sacks in 2019 for the Carabins.
50) RB/REC/KR Colton Klassen, Saskatchewan
Arguably the most versatile member of this year’s draft class, capable of contributing as a ball carrier, receiver, and return specialist.
