2022 CFL Draft prospect Riley Boersma shredded the Western Regional Combine in Edmonton on Friday, placing first in a number of testing events.

The five-foot-ten, 187-pound receiver out of the University of Regina ran a 4.53 forty-yard dash, leapt a 41.5-inch vertical jump, and recorded a ten-foot, eight-inch broad jump. These results were the best in each of their respective categories, though Manitoba receiver Gavin Cobb tied Boersma with a 41.5-inch vertical jump.

Boersma also recorded 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which led all receivers, as well as a 7.11 three-cone and 4.42 shuttle.

The native of Cambridge, Ont. made 18 receptions for 285 yards and two touchdowns in six games with the Rams in 2021, though the club failed to make the playoffs with a 1-5 record. His best season came in 2019 when he caught 21 passes for 478 yards and four touchdowns in eight games.

The highest bench press total of the day was shared in a three-way tie by Regina defensive lineman Garth Knittig, Regina offensive lineman Joel Braden, and UBC offensive lineman Diego Alatorre Montoya at 22.

Manitoba receiver Brandon Poulin recorded the fastest three-cone at 6.88, while Manitoba defensive back Marcel Arruda-Welch has the best shuttle at 4.12.
