I would take him at 5 without blinking an eye.

4 would be a better spot to take him... especially if he isn't going to be signed this year... then #5 will carry a lower pricetag Wink

cant see Betts sticking there....he is too small to play the edge there, and has little to no experience to be slotted in as an outside linebacker type there and not worth the time and effort for an NFL tam to put years worth of work into him to just be a marginal guy at best..there are hundreds of undrafted guys coming out of U.S schools with his measurable's or better, who would need less work to make a team, if only as a special teamer and 3rd tier depth guy, so he will get a look, but be shocked if he gets a PR spot

DE has become the domain of super athletic players, not sure any Canadian prospect is going to be able to compete with top-grade athletes like Jefferson and Jeffcoat even with a ratio advantage.  Trends being what they are this looks to be the direction the CFL is heading, better to focus on DT or OL prospects and pick up a solid grinder.

There is no difference in salary between 4 and 5, therefore, you take the player you want now at 4 and see if your phone rings for a potential trade at 5. In the past several years, outside of number one, the first round payscale has been virtually even between picks 2-9

If Betts or Kongbo are available at 4/5 we have to take one of them. After Richards, Wilkinson and Fonatna are the only other OL's in the top 10.

 Sounds good I don?t know crap about any of these guys.  I?m just excited to see some new Canadian blood Flowing through these blue and gold veins.

Pick well Kevin!

I would take Betts at #4 or 5. Doesn't matter which. I don't think he'll be coming to the CFL this year anyway so it's a pick for the future.

Kongbo  ripped up his knee pretty good with a torn ACL and MCL. Eke!

 I understand he will be back in July but is there any injury concerns more than a normal player?

https://www.cfl.ca/2019/04/30/will-nfl-aspirations-impact-thursdays-draft/

Windsor OL Drew Desjarlais ? New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers

My top overall pick in Mock Draft 2.0, I have to imagine that Desjarlais will impress Giants brass the same way he did anyone in attendance at the CFL National Combine but the Giants are notorious ? in the most positive way ? for bringing in plenty of Canadians to get a look at rookie mini camps thanks to front office man Kevin Abrams? Canadian connections.

Desjarlais should go, learn, gain some unique experiences and bring them back to be a CFL difference maker.

Jonathan Kongbo | DL | Tennessee

In two seasons with the Tennessee Volunteers, Kongbo has appeared in 24 games, starting in 12. Through 24 games he?s amassed 40 tackles (15 solo, 25 assisted), 5.5 tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks. Kongbo, a native of Surrey, B.C. also notched a interception versus Missouri that he returned 59 yards for a touchdown. Prior to going to the University of Tennessee Kongbo attended Wyoming as a freshman where he reshirted. Following that he went to Arizona Western College (JUCO) where he played a season and was rated the number one JUCO prospect.

Jonathan Kongbo ? The top prospect in the first of three scouting bureau rankings last September, Kongbo suffered a season-ending injury that could sideline him well into 2019. That shouldn?t deter anyone, as the Surrey, B.C. native started at defensive end for a Division I NCAA school with the Tennessee Volunteers.
