Blue Bombers sign top 2022 CFL Draft pick DB Tyrell Ford

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed the 13th overall selection in the 2022 CFL Draft in Waterloo defensive back Tyrell Ford.

The five-foot-eleven, 194-pound cover man played four seasons at the University of Waterloo and was a big part of the school’s turnaround since his arrival.

Ford recorded six interceptions while playing for the Warriors and was a dynamic kick-returner. He ran the fastest 40-yard dash at the 2022 CFL Combine with a time of 4.42 seconds and recently attended rookie mini-camps with the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers. Ford was a three-time OUA all-star and was twice named a second-team All-Canadian.

The native of Niagara Falls, Ont. will be in training camp on Friday morning.
