It wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Linden Gaydosh be taken first overall by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Monday’s CFL draft.

Nor would it be that much more of a stretch to see him wearing Green and Gold sometime in the future.

“He probably, by all accounts, could go first overall depending on what happens,” Eskimos general manager Ed Hervey said of the six-foot-three, 314-pound defensive lineman from Peace River. “But he’s a player who we’re very fond of here in Edmonton, who we know very well.

“And we would hope at some point that he would want to come back and play here in Edmonton in front of his family.”

To which Hervey quickly smiled and added into the mic: “Hope you’re listening, Linden.”

Should that situation happen to play itself out, it wouldn’t be the first time the Eskimos plucked a Ticats first-overall draft pick who grew up in this part of the province.
