2011 CFL Draft (Round Six)

The Picks
1) Saskatchewan - Kyle Exume, RB, Bishop's
2) Winnipeg - Liam Mahoney, WR, Concordia
3) BC - Chris Hodgson, DL, St. Mary's
4) Toronto - Michael Knill, OL, Wilfrid Laurier
5) Hamilton - Jadon Wagner, LB, BYU
6) Calgary - Jared Manchelenko, TE, Concordia
7) Edmonton - Youssy Pierre, WR, Montreal
8) Montreal - Blaine Ruttan, DB, Carson-Newman

My Thoughts
Jadon Wagner lasted until the last round, and that means great things for the Cats. Wagner, who was considered a borderline first-round prospect, is not returning to BYU, so he will be in camp this summer. This could be a huge get for the Tabbies.

The last round was also the landing spot for bench-press champion Michael Knill. At E-Camp, Knill bench pressed a whopping 47 reps. To say he's strong would be an understatement. Could be a beastly get for the Argos.

And with that, the 2011 CFL Draft is over. After having a chance to digest everything I will have some more thorough thoughts either tonight or tomorrow. I will also have more to say about the picks the Tiger-Cats made (and didn't make).

I hope everyone enjoyed the draft. I know I did.
