Huge dude. Even if he loses weight he's going to be an inside guy who specializes in the run game.

3 DB's, 1 LB, 1 OL and an RB?  This is a weird draft for sure, looks like good value all the way through, and future...  ST help right away...

He's not playing here this year... then maybe not next if he gets an NFL sniff... but if he ever does come north, he is a beast... can dunk at 344 lbs...

I get that we needed some depth at DB, but it seems odd to pick 3 of them when we pick no receivers, and our depth there is equally shaky.

We could have taken Terrell Jana in the second, and still had our pick of the two DBs in the third. SMH.

As I have said a number of times, I wasn't sure the Bomber where going to pick a player for right now with our #3 pick. However I didn't expect an OL, I was think a D player like Amen or Joseph.

I would have like to have seen a DL, but I am very happy with Kramdi and Rene. Rene is another future pick but he is tall, just need to fill out.  

Borsa is an interesting pick. 6' 200lbs. 4.38/40.

Weekes is a Manitoba kid that is a pretty solid player.

Lowes have no idea.

Was hoping for Diallo in the first, and then he dropped to us at the end of round 2 and we still passed on him... odd choice. 
Seems we're going to be starting a Canadian in the secondary with both Hallets and now Kramdi & Rene coming to camp as high picks.  Hopefully management doesn't just see them all as special teams depth, cause that could've been addressed in the later rounds.

I am surprised we took an OL with our 1st pick and that he's a " future " option. OTOH, it defers a 1st round draft choice salary with the effort for reducing the SMS this season.

It also reduces the number of draft choices coming to TC when you combine the 2020 draft choices. Two of our choices won't be available for 2021. So I see the logic in that.

I knew we needed some bodies at DB and 2 will be available for TC 2021.

That said, Jana was available at receiver and he was on my mind as a good option.

All in all I wonder if this means we may be looking at a Canadian starting at safety?

I'm not unhappy with the picks but somewhat surprised in the direction of the choices.

I agree with you, but I have my reservations as to whether Jana can make the transition to the pros. He is slow. Great route runner, hands and smarts but a 4.75/40 sets off alarm bells to me.

I would think we would love to start a NAT at S. Don't know if this crop cements that though.

Dunking a basketball is neat but really means absolutely nothing to his value as a football player. I have mixed feeling any time we draft a futures guy that early. Andy Mulumba still weighs heavily on my mind when we do that. It did work out with Gray though.

Borsa was my favorite pick in the draft. I know we have Augustine and Oliveira already but I like the commitment to finding our next Andrew Harris.

Yes but I also don't see 4 Canadian DB's on the AR either. Adding the 2nd Global player takes away a roster spot on the AR 44. Roster: 22 imports, 2 Global and 20 Canadians on the AR 44

We have a long list of import DB's that suggests an all import secondary more probable at the moment. Some of those players look impressive.
