    Would he really trade the first pick away?? I can't see it but never say never.

    Has to be Heenan. Any other pick will disappoint me.

    The Riders have holes. Offensive line is the foundation of the entire team so Taman would be crazy to trade him away. Heenan will still go #1. Tyrone Crawford is an interesting choice even though he has been drafted. I could see Calgary picking him as he'll drop down to Round 2 or 3.

    Lineman Ben Heenan, seen here playing for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

    The Saskatchewan Roughriders confirmed Thursday morning they will take offensive lineman Ben Heenan with the first overall pick in the CFL Canadian draft. The draft is scheduled for later Thursday.

    It would have been funny to see Taman trade the first pick (Heenan) to Edmonton just to see the angst by Rider fans. Nah, Taman is too smart for that...But still, it would have been quite hillarious.
