    1) Justin Senior, OL, Mississippi State

    The Montreal, Quebec native has manned the right tackle position for two seasons with the Bulldogs and that’s exactly what he’s doing in his senior year. Senior had 26 starts at Mississippi State entering the 2016 campaign. An NFL calibre talent, six-foot-five, 300-pounder is on the Senior Bowl watch list.

    2) Kwaku Boateng, DL, Wilfrid Laurier

    2015 OUA J.P Metras award winner, Boateng recorded 18 tackles, nine tackles for loss and four sacks last year. The Milton, Ontario product is a tough defensive end with athleticism that projects to the pro game. He’s a major part of a stout Laurier defence.

    3) Akeel Lynch, RB, Nevada

    After rushing for 1,318 yards and seven touchdowns on 262 carries during three seasons at Penn State, Lynch graduated and transferred to Nevada for his final year of NCAA eligibility in 2016. He’s far and away the best Canadian running back available in the 2017 CFL Draft class.

    4) Dan Vandervoort, REC, McMaster

    Broke onto the CIS scene by posting 31 receptions for 594 yards and eight touchdowns as a freshman in 2013. That campaign earned him the CIS Rookie of the Year award. The six-foot-one, 190-pound receiver has shown steady improvement and developed his frame ever year since landing at Mac.

    5) Eli Ankou, DL, UCLA

    Started 11 games for the Bruins as a redshirt junior one year ago and wreaked havoc on the inside, making 47 tackles and five for loss. At six-foot-three, 325 pounds, Ankou possess size, skills and quickness needed to thrive at the professional level.

    6) Christophe Mulumba, LB, Maine

    Named CAA and ECAC Defensive Rookie of the Year after making 118 tackles, four tackles for loss, two interceptions, 1.5 sacks and a fumble recovery. Mulumba has caught the attention of scouts north and south of the border, a strong senior season could vault him into legitimate NFL consideration.

    7) Rashaun Simonise, REC, Okanagan Sun

    The rangy receiver has intriguing potential which caught the attention of NFL scouts and in particular Cincinnati. Based on pure talent, Simonise is the best pass catcher available.

    8) Nathaniel Behar, REC, Carleton

    Fast (4.67 40), strong (22 reps of 225 pounds) and explosive (10-foot, one-inch broad jump), Behar packs a punch at six-foot, 190-pounds. No. 11 has been the face of Carleton’s rising program since committing to the Ravens. Scouts love Behar the young man – great attitude.

    9) Qadr Spooner, OL, McGill

    When NFL scouts came to see Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft and currently starts at guard for the Chiefs, they discovered Spooner. He’s agile for a six-foot-four, 303-pounder and that ability to move smoothly with his stature will garner lots of interest from three-down talent evaluators.

    10) Antony Auclair, REC/TE, Laval

    Big, physical athlete who can win with quickness. Auclair looks like a classic Canadian slotback in the CFL – six-foot-five, 246 pounds. NFL personnel men could be interested in him as a tight end.
