With the depth of the football talent in Canada continuing to expand, the CFL Draft is following suit.
The Canadian Football League announced today that it has expanded its draft from six to seven rounds.
“The talent of football in Canada is the strongest it’s ever been,” said Kevin McDonald, CFL Vice President of Football Operations. “And with this increase in the depth of Canadian talent, we wanted to ensure our teams had an increased opportunity to draft, train and coach Canadian players.”
The seventh round selection order is determined by waiver priority. The order for that round is as follows: Hamilton, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Saskatchewan, Montreal, BC, Calgary, Toronto.
The CFL draft can be seen Monday morning at 10 AM Saskatchewan time on TSN.
