Riders just gave up a 3rd round selection for Bennett.

I'd pass on him as I don't see the need. We have Speller, Desjarlais and Gray as developmental (and playing) young offensive lineman. Neufeld will play when he's ready and it will be hard enough to roster everyone as it is. There will be plenty of shiny things next draft we can spend our first rounder on.

Good break for them.

Injuries and ratio. In any case he was drafted by the Riders. Whether we bid or not I don't know.

Plus Eli on the PR.

Right, but the question becomes how you roster him if he's essentially an injury replacement.

Right. Forgot. Good point. Who is also a natural centre. There's no way to fit him really.

The GMs quite obviously did not view him in the same light as the media.

Very few OL can start in their 1st year. Might depend on whether any of them can play RT eliminating the need to roster an import on the 1 man DR. Especially when the import is just another CFL rookie on an ELC. Might have been different if Foketi was the extra import OL.

Don't know anything about Bennett or even Eli for that matter. Perhaps some of the 2019 drafted OL are more versatile or perhaps not.

The original comments were that Bennett could have been a top 1st round pick. In theory that would have made him a higher prospect than Eli even if we stole him so to speak.

But you are correct that finding a space for him or any new player is not black and white. Roster size, SMS all have to be managed.

To answer the direct question I would have moved McGloster to PR and put Bennett on the 1 man DR. Even though Bennett got picked with a 3rd round choice, a Canadian OL over an import is a good option.

We're 1 nick away from starting a 2019 draft choice already.

Obviously when other teams were/are in need of National lineman to get him with only a 3rd means that most G.M's didn't see any value/upside to him other than a body.

Undersized and not an overwhelming performer at the College level so pretty much a meh pick and hardly any kind of coup....but when you are desperate for talent and depth..especialy National you will scramble for what you can get

I?d take a Canadian guy that has started some games in a pro league at C for a 3rd rounder any day.  Hate the Riders, like the value pickup.

What?  Risk?  You mean we might get stuck with a quality Olineman who is game ready after playing in the AAF and exhausting his NFL window?  24 years old and a C?  

Yeah, lets hope we don't get stuck with that... our first rounder next year is going to be 8 or 9 at best, this way we get a player a year early as well...

No way it gets left at our pick, EDM, TOR or BC... heck HAM might even bid...

But bidding makes one of them use thier first, and takes MTL out of the running... the Manzeil trade mucks them up again...
Sure he might be fine. But we don't need that and adding him takes away Speller or Eli and once Neufeld returns an even bigger headache.

Neufeld's injury is puzzling since we didn't really hear much about it. He may be pulled off early or he may be gone for an extended part of the season.

At 288 pounds, he's 10 pounds lighter than our lightest guy. From what I've read, hes more finesse than power. So a guy like Richardson, who is powerful, might be able to push him around.

Besides Wagoner and Johnstone, I cant recall a 1st round Sup pick recently. I'm sure during the regular draft Bennett, just like Wolitarsky, would have been a 1st rounder
