    Wouldn't mind if the esks added another O’Donnell to the lineup in the upcoming draft...perhaps the pants he's wearing in the image below is a precursor to come...Shrine_Bowl.jpg

    It will be a miracle if he lasts til our # 4 overall pick. I can't see Huf not taking O'D... at # 1. Maybe with the success Calgary had with Singleton he might go for Jordan Williams at LB but even then the Lions won't let O'D.. get to us. Chris Morris iirc said O'D is the best Oline prospect from U.A. in the past decade.

    When is the last time a UofA alumni went first overall in the CFL draft? Can't recall off the top of my head...Just looked it up Rottier in 2009...from what I can tell he has been the only one so if O'D does go first he'll be in select company.

    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    O'D would be the safer pick for a CFL team. He likely is a FA pick or late draft choice for the NFL. Will get a shot down there though. Gallimore and Claypool , most likely 2nd rd choices and a longer wait if they do come north. If the world ever returns to normal there will be a lot of AAFL and XFL guys looking for work also ,so maybe NFL clubs won't be as patient waiting for a young player like O'D. to develop. More brawling for the Olinmen down there and a Cdn kid is used to having that one yard gap.

    I hope O'D goes down there and wins himself a job. Someone mentioned that we could possibly trade up. Huf might want a couple of 1st rounders and Connor McDavid.

    Interesting. We let David Turner go who was our director of player personnel last season and Will Homer ( asst. dir.) is no longer with us. Can't remember if there was an announcement of his leaving. Merritt becomes asst. GM and now I see Matt Boockmeier is added to the scouting staff who iirc was a scout with Sask. in the Taman days. Maybe getting a multi tasking staff together with the reduction in numbers and salary with the mgt. CFL cap.

    I'll just put this here since we don't have an official 2020 team thread running just yet...

    Mackie was a little spark plug on defense; similar to the attitude of a JC Sherritt where you had an undersized guy playing a hard defensive position. Loved his lunch pail type of attitude, and he sincerely seemed grateful to be here. Not bad for a last round pick in the 2017 CFL draft.

    Much respect and good luck to Milk Truck! Loved watching his motor and he was quietly one of our better teamers last season.

    Who I am not seeing there is Calvin.

    Has he officially retired, and I just missed it or something?
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Don’t think he retired, but he and the esks couldn’t come to terms on a contract.

    Calvin is a Free Agent. This is only people who are signed with the Eskimos (and not nearly all of them)
