Great report! Just curious if they take video of these tryouts?

I don't think so, I didn't see anyone doing so anyway... plus at the end they told everyone to send in their highlight reel and to be sure to include their 'number' that was given to them that day so they could cross reference with their notes...  I thought about doing some video on my phone, but I didn't want to be that guy, you know, the one that is politely asked to leave the facilities for recording the tryouts, lol...

An awesome insider report into something we as Bomber fans don't hear much about. Thanks Chevelle.

and besides the ridicule of public embarassment, I didn't want to make public something that some may consider private workouts. I know that it's an open call out and some of these guys are probably trying out for other teams as well... but I remember early on reading something posted by the mods here relating to divulging 'too much' information, so, trying to be cognizant of that request as well.

because based upon the number of 'lurkers' there are on our board, there seems to be a lot of interest generated by what we have to say. that's not to hard to believe based upon what I've seen on the other Bomber boards that are primarily made up of a few grumpy people shouting really loud about how everything sucks... we are by far the best Bomber board when it comes to being respectful (did I really say that, lol) and talking knowledgeably about the team... at least in my opinion...

We have signed 21 players from our Free Agent Camps in the past two seasons--including 7 current starters on our roster--Looking for more in New York

7 current starters on the roster in 2 years came from the free agent camps?

Jeffcoat, Johnson, Alexander, Walker, JSK are current starters I can think of that probably came from free agent camps last year. Who were the other two?

I can't think of any starter that might have been from a free agent camp in 2016 that is still a starter.

Alexander and Walker may not be starters or even with the team in 2018.

So yes free agent camps are a great necessary idea but I think the 21 signed and 7 starters left in 2 years is a bit over stated and somewhat underwhelming??

The report said 7 current starters. Bond was great. Bass was good and made plays but he was here in 2015 -16, not 2017.  The others were part time and forgettable.

Carmichael is probably still on the suspended list but wasn't very good and certainly not still a starter.

Maybe this is the year we find some real talent among the rookies. To this point our scouting has been a weak point of concern.

Success signing CFL players in free agency is different issue with greater results:

1. Receivers: Adams, Dressler, Bowman, Coates, Demski, Lankford ( back up? )
2. QB: Nichols, Durant ( back up )
3. OL: Bryant, Hardrick, Neufeld
4. RB: Harris, LaFrance, Flanders ( back up?)
5: DB: Randle, Fenner, Gaitor, Clarke
6. DL: Okpalaugo, Nevis, Roh ( DI? )
7. ST: Medlock, Remple

That's 17 starters and 2 critical players on the kicking / ST. Four possible and / or recent back ups.

That's a very good collection of starters with a couple of DI's ratio not withstanding.
