1. First round, third overall: OT Mike Gyetvai, Michigan State -- "He was injured last year and only played four games. He's very athletic, a knee-bender. He's everything you look for in a left tackle. He may as good as being a first-day guy next year in the NFL draft. We had him graded as the top player in the draft by quite a ways."

2. First round, fifth overall: LB Justin Phillips, Wilfrid Laurier -- "He's an undersized defensive end but the right size for linebacker. He played defensive end at college but we'll change him to linebacker. He has a lot of the same qualities as Scott Coe. He is athletic and loves to play."

3. First round, sixth overall: WR Jabari Arthur, Akron -- "He's a big wide receiver and fits the bill of what they want in the NFL but may not be fast enough. He's a 4.6 guy and they want a 4.4. He's very nifty with the ball in his hands and very physical. He was a quarterback in junior so he has great knowledge of the game."

4. Second round, 14th overall: WR Kevin Challenger, Boston College -- "He played for Frank Spaziani (at B.C.), who used to coach here. Spaz thinks he's a 10-year CFLer. He's a lot like Ben Cahoon, very quick and catches the ball very well. He makes a lot of catches at the end of games, which was important to us. He went there as a walk on and became one of their better players. He may be a late-round NFLer or free-agent."

5. Third round, 21st overall: DE-LS Patrick MacDonald, Alberta -- "We were in Miami at a showcase camp and he was there. We timed him and I've never had anybody as quick as he was snapping. We brought him to our minicamp because we didn't just want a long-snapper. We had to see if he could play defence and he did very well. He just loves to play football. He signed with New Orleans and we may not see him for a while."

6. Fifth round, 35th overall: SB Henry Bekkering, Eastern Washington -- "We think he has as much athletic ability as anyone in this league. We were going to take him third round until Challenger fell and were hoping he would fall to the fifth. He might go on to play pro basketball."

7. Fifth round, 38th overall: LB Ian Hazlett, Queen's -- "He missed most of last year with injury. (Queen's coach) Pat Sheahan talks about him being similar to Marc Mitchell but a bit more physical."

8. Sixth round, 45th overall: SB Greg Hetherington, McGill -- "He played for our receivers coach, Chuck McMann, at McGill. He's a very bright kid and a guy we expect to bring in and move him around because he could play all five positions. We'll find out if he's physical enough to be a slot.
