Every Canadian player ever selected in the NFL draft

Since 1966 — the start date of the Super Bowl Era — there have been 61 players from north of the border selected in the NFL draft.

At least one Canadian has been chosen in the NFL draft from 2011 to 2019, the longest-ever streak — nine years — for our home and native land. It definitely will continue in 2020.

Receiver Chase Claypool and defensive lineman Neville Gallimore are surefire NFL draft picks and three others — quarterback Nathan Rourke, offensive lineman Carter O’Donnell and defensive lineman Michael Hoecht — could hear their names called in the later rounds.
