    Pair of players after the draft. RB Nathan Riva and WR Brogan Raic.

    Riva was the fastest of this year's draft class RBs. Fantastic runner when he's healthy and he has been for the past year and a half. Didn't put up huge career numbers at Western but that was more because of the full backfield they had there. If Nathan had played at a different school he'd have put up monster numbers.

    Brogan Raic had a big time E-Camp and that made up for his not so ideal draft season in Ottawa. Best feature is that he's a 6'3" 218 pound target. Potentially a great find for the Riders that was overlooked in the Draft (can you say Rob Bagg?).

    Training camp minimum is 68 players, training camp maximum is 75 with all non-import QBs, drafted players from this year, drafted players from last year joining the club and 2 additional players from the 2012 Draft Class are all non-counters.

    Riva and Raic will both be non-counters as members of the 2012 Draft Class that weren't selected.

    Let's look at Hamilton for an example of the system:

    They could bring in a full camp roster of 75 players plus add the three players from last year's draft that didn't join the club (Moe Petrus, Patrick Jean-Mary and Tyrell Francisco), plus the seven from this year's draft (if they could get their future picks to leave school), plus two that weren't selected, plus a Canadian QB (technically they could add a dozen Canadian QBs without penalty) for a total of 88 players in camp.
