    Calgary takes Pierre Lavertu with first-overall pick: how will he fit in with the Stamps?
    Andrew Bucholtz | 55 Yard Line

    The CFL draft may have started in unconventional fashion, with Ottawa dealing the first-overall pick(and the rights to retired lineman Marwan Hage) to Calgary for offensive lineman Jon Gott, but the player eventually taken with that pick wasn't a huge surprise. Laval centre Pierre Lavertu was the third-highest-ranked prospect in the league's April rankings, and with #1 and #2-ranked prospects Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and David Foucault receiving notable NFL interest, he looked to be one of the best players out there. TSN analyst Duane Forde said on a call last week that he saw Lavertu as a player who can step in to a CFL role right away, especially when compared to other potential centres such as SFU's Matthias Goosen.

    "Lavertu is the most instantly ready," Forde said. "Lavertu may be more ready to step in and go from day one."

    It s interesting that the Stampeders have drafted a kicker/punter in this years draft, and last year. I wonder if either, or both, will be in camp?

    I believe Dumirtru Ionita was released during camp last year making him a free agent.

    Went through the transactions leading up to camp last year and it doesn't appear as though he was signed. Instead he was playing semi-pro in Ontario.

    I did however find a clip of his punting this year:
