    With the 2013 season quickly wrapping up, who do you think will be this year's top Rookie?

    The CFL's criteria for being eligible for the award:

    1. He had, in the current season, been named to the active roster of a member Club of the Canadian Football League at the time it played in a regular season game; and
    2. He had not:
    a) In any prior season dressed for a member Club of the Canadian Football League at the time it played in a regular season or playoff or championship game;
    – and –
    b) In the current season or in any prior season, dressed for a member Club in the National Football League, at the time it played in a regular season or post-season or championship game.

    Does CJ Gable run away with the award? Or has Brett Jones stellar performance for our Stamps made him a lock?

    Cast your vote and give us your take.

    Talent wise its CJ Gable hands down. Jones is a real comer though, he should be the western nominee. Just don't remind me about Jones anymore. OK. Another example of that psychopath vermin Joe Mack drafting a box of kleenex instead of Jones.

    There was considerable adjustment made by many CFL teams because of the strong possibility of Jones not being available for 2 years had he gotten into med school. Imagine if the Bombers had drafted Jones and Mulumba and didn't see either of them for 2 years? The fan base would be livid....oh wait.

    You don't have to feel for Slow Joe. He pulled one of the greatest heists in CFL history. Getting himself hired...Kris Robertson was a bad pick, period. Panzy Pencer? You gotta be kiddin' [email protected]@@ Mike Edem woulda made bomber secondary better but Joe spend all his psychic energy coaxing couchy to come to Wpg.....how is andy doing in Green Bay....???

    Where would they have played Edem? As Henoc's back up or as Cauchy's back up? Remember when the knock on the Bombers was not signing CFL Free Agents? There are a lot of legit reasons to rag on the Blue and Gold but the non-drafting of Brett Jones isn't one of them.

    Same with the Mulumba pick. 100% a high risk/high reward type draft pick.

    The argument could be made that the Bombers needed more results this year than rewards, but at least attempt to see the vision here that the Bombers selected a young man that would be a ratio breaker as a starting non-import DE in the CFL.

    Since you want to talk Joe Mack Drafting let's go through it.

    2013
    First Round - Mulumba (see above)
    Second Round - Kris Robertson - overdrafted, would have been available later on but again Bombers were looking for a ratio breaking defensive player to upgrade the safety spot.
    Third Round - Carl Fitzgerald - complete overdraft. Should not have been selected there.
    Fourth Round - Michael DiCorce - made 40 catches for McMaster this fall in 7 games. Could be a future injury concern but a good non-import receiver that if healthy in 2012 would've been a 1st-2nd round draft pick. Good value.
    Fifth Round - no pick
    Sixth Round - Stephen Alli - a future pick. In the future they could have two of the fastest non-import receivers if they could ever get Alli and Poblah on the field at the same time.
    Seventh Round - Billy Pavlopoulos - Nobody was prepared for a seventh round and it shows with 3 kickers selected. Not a terrible selection and had a couple good days at training camp but not ready to kick at the pro level.

    2012
    First Round - Ty Pencer - overdrafted but when healthy not a bad pick. Should've been a 3rd round pick or so.
    Second Round - no pick
    Third Round - Johnny Aprile - overdrafted, some talk about him flipping to DB but instead returned to the CIS as a receiver.
    Third Round - Christo Bilukidi - NFL pick. Hoping for his eventual trip to Canada. Could be a ratio breaker.
    Fourth Round - Rene Stephen - still on the team, injured for 17 games in 2012, key special teams guy
    Fourth Round - Jake Thomas - still on the team, special teams guy and rotational DT.
    Fifth Round - no pick
    Sixth Round - no pick

    Serious drafting pattern there. Top 2 or 3 picks in both 2012 and 2013 are high risk, high reward picks. Followed by very strong picks in the fourth round of both years. It's a similar pattern to what BC does in the draft.
