2014 CFL Canadian Draft

The Top Prospects

The Canadian Football League Scouting Bureau published its January winter edition of the top 15 ranked prospects eligible for the 2014 CFL Draft.

For the second-straight ranking, McGill offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is the top ranked prospect. Duvernay-Tardif is followed by two other offensive linemen - Pierre Lavertu from Laval is ranked second and David Foucault from Montreal is third. Rounding out the top five are St. Francis Xavier wide receiver Devon Bailey and Simon Fraser offensive lineman Matthias Gooseen, who made the largest jump in the rankings, moving up ten spots to fifth.

The 2014 CFL Combine will be held in Toronto from March 21 to March 23 and the 2014 CFL Draft is on May 13.
