 The CFL draft, still a month and a half away, could provide an interesting dilemma for the Ottawa RedBlacks.

Do they pick the player who is the consensus top prospect -- McGill offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif -- or do they look elsewhere, based on signability?

It's expected Duvernay-Tardif will get an NFL look-see, with a good chance he'll be selected in the league's draft, May 8-10. He chose to skip the CFL Combine which was held Saturday and Sunday, instead showcasing himself in front of CFL and NFL Scouts at a pro day Thursday in Montreal. He's already got an April visit lined up with the Arizona Cardinals and a dinner scheduled this week with the Buffalo Bills.
