Trey Rutherford Selected With Second Overall Pick in CFL Draft

Run of O-lin

In return, the Bombers landed B.C.'s 2019 first-round selection as well as its second-round choice (No. 12 overall) in this year's draft. He led the Chippewas with 59 catches for 875 yards in 2017, and finished his career with 147 receptions for 2,035 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Chapman is deemed a Canadian in the CFL because he has dual Canadian-American status as his mother is a native of Sarnia. Ont.

Chapman also has a minicamp invitation on the table from the New York Giants of the NFL.

The Ticats also hold the 6th, 11th, 15th, 31st, 37th, 44th, 62nd and 66th overall picks. "It's really exciting for me and I really can't believe it".

Hamilton, with its second first-round pick, continued bolstering its offence line by taking Calgary lineman Darius Ciraco. Chapman had been projected to go to Hamilton before the trade. "I'm eager to get there and join my teammates and get to work".

"(Montreal) brought me down to do a little workout and interview down in Florida when they were doing a camp down there", said Rutherford, who, according to reports this past week, turned down National Football League interest to pursue the CFL. "It's a great run-and-gun offense that I think I fit well in".

The B.C. Lions selected Rice offensive lineman Peter Godber at No. 3, a pick they obtained from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Wednesday. The six-foot-three, 300-pound Toronto native was sent home early from the CFL combine after not testing but six CFL clubs went to his pro day.

As a substitute, they have to use instrument touchdown programs or satellite-based programs to line up for the right runway. The captain, who was flying the plane, had more than 20,000 hours of flying time, and the co-pilot had about 10,000 hours.

The Ottawa Redblacks took Alberta's Mark Korte at No. 4.

The last Chippewa selected in the first round of the CFL draft was defensive back Eric Fraser, who was selected No. 8 by Calgary in 2009.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders may have to wait on Dakoda Shepley, who has an undrafted free-agent deal with the New York Jets, but if the risk pays off, it will be well worth the fifth overall pick.

Neither Winnipeg nor the Edmonton Eskimos had first-round picks.

Rounding out the final two picks in the first round were the Calgary Stampeders, who chose OL Ryan Sceviour at No. 8 and the Toronto Argonauts, who snatched up Ryan Hunter at No. 9. The Stamps needed offensive line help after the retirement of former first overall pick Pierre Lavertu.

Sceviour shared a stadium with the Stampeders as a member of the University of Calgary Dinos a year ago, while Hunter, who played for Bowling Green State and was the consensus No. 1 pick by the league's scouting bureau, rounded out the first round of the draft.
