    Here's the latest installment. Always interesting to see the gamemanship and the threads of truth that show up here. The CFL acknowledges that last year's winter rankings (January 2012) saw 12 of the 15 players drafted so that's sort of their admission that it's not really the Top 15 players. Now Ty Crawford was on there and everybody knew he was going to be NFL drafted and he's doing well with the Cowboys but still that means 2 other "Top 15s" didn't get drafted.

    December 2012:
    1. (3) Bo Lokombo LB Oregon
    2. (4) Matt Sewell OL McMaster
    3. (2) Linden Gaydosh DL Calgary
    4. (1) Stefan Charles DL Regina
    5. (10) Ben D’Aguilar DL McMaster
    6. (--) Andy Mulumba DL Eastern Michigan
    7. (6) Corey Watman OL Eastern Michigan
    8. (7) Jesse Joseph DL UConn
    9. (--) Brent Urban DL Virginia
    10. (14) Nolan MacMillan OL Iowa
    11. (9) Brett Jones OL Regina
    12. (11) Stephen Alli WR Florida
    13. (5) Steven Lumbala RB Calgary
    14. (--) Mike Edem LB Calgary
    15. (8) Kalonji Kashama DL Eastern Michigan

    Rids, do you think Lumbala is as good as Walter? Can Lumbala play in the CFL?

    I believe Steven Lumbala is a CFL caliber running back. He's a solid tailback and can really run.

    In the CFL as of the end of the season there were 21 non-import running backs (tailbacks + fullbacks) on the 46 man rosters.

    I think he'll be the first running back taken in the draft and should be taken in the first two rounds.

    In other breaking news the bombers have decided to go OFF the board with their picks and are now expected to select - - -

    1. Either Oscar Pastorius (Bladerunner State), WR/Special Teams or Christine Sinclair (footballer) with their first pick....

    2. With their second pick they're still trying to find the guy who broke both of Tyson Pencer's shoulders....!!!!

    Seriously, some hypnotist must have planted a suggestion decades ago that prevents the bombers from thinking/scouting logically during the draft process. Mace is a perfect example as the bombers feel they got burned by a guy who hid himself in the NFL to avoid playing in the bomber system and came back to the CFL only after the NFL found they had a guy hiding on their roster. Thus, Matt Sewell won't be a bomber selection as everyone figures he'll be an NFL starter or sixth OL for years to come. Bombers have a crying need for an effective starting canuck offensive or defensive lineman.... which in JoeMackSpeak means 'We drafting a receiver!' YAY!!!!

    I believe I've posted this already but couldn't find it.


    There will be changes made to the CFL Evaluation Camp this year. Looks like they will have more players involved although the main camp in Toronto will still have the same 50ish. Hope that they announce it soon!

    We need to see more qbs. Sorry state of affairs. I don't believe the CFL should draft Canadian qbs every year if there aren't any ones capable of playing. But in the years that there are, they need to be. Rids, who is Cayman Shutter? Understand he is a Canadian by birth playing for Hawaii. Mike at ourbombers says he is turning pro. Looked at his stats & he has none. Well, virtually none.

    Cayman Shutter is a QB whose family moved to Hawaii when he was 10 so he qualifies as a non-import. By all accounts he's a good QB and had a really strong high school career. The plan was for him to challenge for the starting job as a redshirt-junior but then this past year he got into some trouble with a DUI and so Hawaii bumped him back into a depth role because of it.

    I believe he's turning pro because he's graduated already.

    He has absolutely no body of work in college. He attempted 4 passes last season. How is that going to carry him into the pros?

    Really his only other option would be to find a school with a graduate program that he qualifies for and would be willing to take him for a final year. So while he doesn't carry much of a resume he really doesn't have the options since Hawaii has moved on.

    The best thing for him is that the CFL has the non-counter rule for Canadian QBs at training camp.

    Some guys were meant to play pro football & some aren't. Not the first time a collegiate athlete made a poor choice in his life that had major repercussions. Tough lesson to learn. He virtually hasn't played since high school. His chances of sticking with a CFL team are between slim & none. And Slim just went home.
