    Betts was our # 1 pick, 3rd overall in the 2019 draft. Was a DE at Laval , likely not considered to have the size for an NFL D line position. No mention about possible ST players though.

    Projection above doesn't have Betts making the team. Learning to pass rush in training camp from Hicks and Mack hopefully pushes him further on his development at least.

    Thanks for that. Good read. Betts quickness bought him success in CIS ball but just wondering if not being off the los a yd. might be a tough adjustment being nose to nose with a big OT in the NFL. Maybe he can be used in passing situations. Is he quick enough to be an NFL LB or gets to play ST's.

    As you said Hicks & Mack are the best to learn from. Hicks sure has had a good career for a guy that played at U. Regina.
