1. OL Jovan Olafioye B.C.

The skinny: The reigning CFL offensive lineman of the year apparently got NFL offers from Baltimore and Green Bay, but according to a CFL source he failed his physical with the Packers.

Who could use him? Everyone. But if he stays north of the border, there’s no way the Lions can let him go.

2. DE Odell Willis Saskatchewan

The skinny: If there’s one position that many teams need help at this year, it’s defensive end, and Willis is the best one available. He has 30 sacks in the last three years.

Who could use him? Hamilton, Toronto or Calgary. They are all looking for pass rush help, and Willis, who is looking at the NFL first, would provide that.


3. DB Dwight Anderson Montreal

The skinny: He can be a pest to play against and undisciplined at times, but he’s a good guy to have on your team. He has 14 interceptions and seven fumble recoveries in the last six years.
