David William Naylort @TSNDaveNaylor

Can confirm Oklahoma OL Shane Richards recently flew into Toronto. The @TorontoArgos have the top pick and a draft party they are hosting tonight. #CFL #Argos



Hamilton, you are on the clock....

Canadian offensive lineman Shane Richards is in Toronto, per CFL sources.

The Argonauts have the No. 1 overall selection in the 2019 CFL draft.

A good choice most people figured an o-line would probably go first a few names could have been at the top, curious as to who goes 2-3. Will a receiver break top 3 or does a team like Betts enough to take him that early or will we see the top 4 picks belong to o-line?

OL first 4 picks, then Bombers grab Betts.

O-Day seemed to pick much "smarter" than what we have seen from Sask, recently. Calgary looks to have had a good draft. Bc IMO picked unique, I wouldn't say they had a good draft.

Riders were very thin at CDN. receiver.

O'Day made two solid picks with Justin McInnis and Brayden Lenius.

yeah but with no QB..and aging and weak O-line with zero depth on it...good luck those guys seeing much in terms of balls to them, let alone making much of an impact..also Mcinniss has a very good shot of bouncing around down south for a while...not to be a Rider hater but I think their draft was an epic fail

They needed a CDN receiver and got 2, I think for their needs they did allright.

Exactly.  Picking anything but a good receiver or 2 would have been a fail.  Can't fix QB in this draft...O-line needs depth not starters.  They did well.  I think the only problem was giving up that 3rd round pick for Vernon Adams a few years back.  It would have been a good year to have that pick.

Your OL needs starters it has plenty of depth calibre OL. An ancient Labatte is arguably the only starting calibre NAT you have. When you have a Faberge egg for a QB, his protection has to be top priority. You simply cannot keep him upright for another season by never throwing more than 2 yards down field and expect to win this season. Not when your dominant D of last year is in shambles now. Lots of Rider fans don't understand how putrid their OL is because McAdoo put in an offence that had the ball out of the QBs hands in a nano second last year after ZC took incredible, almost biblical, amounts of punishment because of how bad the OL was early in the season. Even with a 2 yard passing game, the Riders couldn't keep him upright. It's a disaster.

I, too, am not sure what they were thinking. I can understand McInnis but they should have went OL after that.

Labatte is older and a walking injury now, and not nearly as good as he was..Bladek coming off ACL injury at end of season so doubt he ready anytime soon..and he wasn't stellar to begin with so this time off and rehab won't bring him back better..Shepley totally unproven and a lesser player than Gray..whom many think won't start this year here, so what does that tell you..Clarke...eeegads...bottom barrel o-line starter in league...no Canadian depth behind any of that and 2 average American tackles...so how the faithful there think they are sitting good at o-line is baffling...They also picked up Blake last year, but he is a 30 something average guard who isn't on the upside of his career...so to not take a top ranked o-line man IS a major fail..as thats one more year behind in developing a potential starter..

Riderfans want to point to the vast improvement the line made after the first 6 games last year in sacks surrendered. However, what they fail to factor in was McAdoo completely revamping their offence so that the QB was never passing for more than 5 yard quick hitters. Sure he didn't get creamed as much, but opposing defences only needed to defend within 10 yards of scrimmage and their offensive production was non existent because of it. If the Riders want to play a regular style offence they needed big improvement along their OL....they have made zero moves to make that happen.
