Canadian running back Daniel Adeboboye has announced his intention to declare for the 2022 NFL Draft, which means he will also automatically be added to the 2022 CFL Draft.

The five-foot-eleven, 220-pound ball carrier was born in Toronto, Ont. but played his high school football at The Hill School in Pottstown, Pa. He has spent the past four years at Bryant University, located in Smithfield, R.I., competing in the Northeast Conference (NEC) of the FCS.

Adeboboye rushed 383 times for 1,816 yards and 16 touchdowns in 34 career games, averaging 4.7 yards per carry and 53.4 yards per game. He also made 49 receptions for 264 yards and three touchdowns.

The ball carrier had his best season this past spring during the Bulldogs’ pandemic-shortened campaign. He carried the ball 76 times for 445 yards and two touchdowns in just four games, averaging 111.3 yards per start.

Adeboboye will be arguably the best running backs available in the 2022 CFL Draft, which personnel experts around the league consider to be a relatively weak class.
