    Brett Jones was one of four University of Regina Rams to be selected in the 2013 CFL Draft. Brett was taken 17th overall by Calgary - hear his thoughts along with Rams coach Frank

    Stamps’ gamble on Regina o-lineman could pay off in spades
    Decades ago, John Hufnagel learned to manage risk — the fine art of deciding when to throw the quick out and when to unleash the long bomb — as a starting quarterback with the Denver Broncos, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Calgary Stampeders and Saskatchewan Roughriders.

    The modern-day Stampeders head coach/general manager opted to go deep into double coverage Monday by selecting University of Regina offensive lineman Brett Jones in the second round (16h overall). In doing so, Hufnagel just might have pulled off the steal of the 2013 Canadian Football League draft by taking a gamble on a player other teams shied away from.

    Playing it safe is often overrated — especially for a team like the Stampeders blessed with one of the best collection of Canadians in the land.

    At least the guy was honest by letting CFL teams know of his intentions. The Stamps know exactly what they are getting. Admire the guy for that.

    Getting Jones in the second round is a steal. Reminds me of Matt Walter and the patience the Stamps showed with him.
