Also named outstanding player nominees were quarterbacks Ricky Ray (Toronto) and Henry Burris (Hamilton), running backs Jon Cornish (Calgary) and Kory Sheets (Saskatchewan), linebackers Chip Cox (Montreal) and Adam Bighill (B.C.) and receiver Fred Stamps (Edmonton).

Other multiple nominees included Cox and Bighill (both top defensive player), Cornish (Canadian), Montreal safety Mike Edem (Canadian, rookie), Edmonton linebacker Eric Samuels (rookie, special teams) and Hamilton defensive lineman Brian Bulke (Canadian, defensive player)
