How they'll pick the Renegades

The Sun's Barre Campbell forecasts how the first round of today's Renegades dispersal draft might play out:

1. HAMILTON -- *QB Kerry Joseph. Word is the Ticats will select the 32-year-old and flip him to Saskatchewan, which will need to sell extra Rider Pride shares or get rid of mascot Gainer the Gopher to pay his $400,000 salary.

2. WINNIPEG -- *QB Brad Banks. Often sidelined by injury, but the 2002 Heisman runner-up has never been able to prove himself playing behind Joseph. If he works out, would be awesome pick-up.

3. SASKATCHEWAN -- *WR Jason Armstead. Speedster is always a threat catching the ball or on kick returns. Any team would love to have him. Could end up in Hamilton if the teams swap picks.

4. CALGARY -- *DB Korey Banks. The Stamps had a great defence last year and would get even better with the addition of last season's CFL's interceptions leader (10). But the brash Floridian will cost $160,000, including bonuses.

5. TORONTO -- OL Ibrahim Khan. The 25-year-old Ottawa native would be happy playing close to home. Would be a great PR coup for the Argos to draft a devout Muslim to play in a city with Canada's largest Islamic population. He's a bargain now at $48,000, but will make more in the future.

6. B.C. -- *DL Anthony Collier. The man tied a league record by recording five sacks right at B.C. Place Stadium early last season and would cost only $66,000.

7. MONTREAL -- *LB D'Wayne Taylor. Could be one of the biggest bargains of this dispersal draft. One of the most underrated players with the Renegades last season, and comes with a $65,000 price tag -- including bonuses.

8. EDMONTON -- LB Cam Yeow. The second overall pick of the 2005 draft has loads of potential. A good fit for any team. He'll make $56,000, including bonuses, during the upcoming season.
