I don't mind being called out and challenged on it...and never said any highschool team or JUCO team would thump em or give them (CIS) teams A GOOD RUN FOR THEIR MONEY....  BUT many would....and yeah some Canucks made  A JUCO team after not making their Canadian team...so they just quit at end of camp and went south?..seems highly suspect, and some JUCO loops are garbage ball...especially the ones in the Northern parts of the U.S...that I will give you in your argument.

But further south and especially on the coast many are DIV 1 calibre but are in JUCO for a myriad of reasons..not talent reasons or lack there of.

I find it hard to believe all this top tier first round NFL talent that you faced in the CIS fell through the cracks and never became first rounders in the NFL draft, as they were much better than the Sports Illustrated ranked guys...do you have names of said NCaa guy who sucked in comparison to the CIS competition?

I've seen U.S highschool teams have O-lines average 300+ pounds as seniors and all go on to start in top NCAA programs the following year and you would be hard pressed to find 5 guys in all of the CIS who could be dominat starters in the same programs, and it's not like they have no opportunity..especially these days because if they were good enough..they would be there already...like 99 percent of the talented Canadian kids are, and the rest stay in CIS schools....to tell me a kid would balk at a scholarship and all that went with a top U.S college to play CIS ball is laughable...at least with all the players former and current that I have worked with



Never said a kid would balk at the chance for a scholarship to a US school, that is something you are trying to pin on me. My point is...Canadian players in the CIS have talent and can compete with American players in fact our younger kids are beating their American opponents in head to head games down south. The guy from the University of Northern Arizona Lumberjacks that I was referring to was a fellow named James Guy.

The hype is on BLM receiving an offer but it wouldn't shock me if Reilly gets one first, despite his age he's going to impress any team that works him out enough with his ability and toughness that they might be willing to gamble on a few years of instant production.  I think he'd make a great #2 QB in the NFL, especially when compared honestly against many of his rookie competitors.

Wasn't JSK getting some love down south?  Surprising no Bombers at all on that list.  I saw a piece where Streveler was listed as having potential looks, except he does not have the NFL window in his deal.

Another note: Hardrick, Briggs and Miller's contracts were all made official on Jan 3. Any signing bonuses would be going against the 2019 cap.

Resigned means quit.  Re-signed means he signed a new contract.  Punctuation is important...
