    Charlie Power admits he felt doubtful when his coaches told him it was time to stop tackling people, and to start catching footballs.

    That skepticism is completely gone, especially after the Calgary Stampeders selected the University of Saskatchewan Huskies' linebacker-turned-slotback in the fourth round of Monday's CFL Canadian college draft.

    Power, who went 28th overall, is one of two Huskies chosen Monday. Defensive end and long-snapper Levi Steinhauer went to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the fifth round, 40th overall.

    "When I was first told I'd switch to receiver (prior to last season), there was some mixed feelings. But it was obviously a good decision," says the 6-foot-3, 230-pound Power, who flashed athleticism, size and solid hands last season during his first crack as a receiver at the CIS level.
