OTTAWA - In a CFL draft that's top-heavy in offensive lineman, where at least two of them may wind up with NFL contracts, the Ottawa RedBlacks could throw an interesting twist into the May 13 event.

Whether or not they hold onto the No. 1 choice in the draft -- they could be taking a hard look at a guy who was rated fourth in the final CFL Scouting Bureau rankings, released on Tuesday. And if they draft that fourth-ranked guy, Concordia defensive lineman Quinn Smith, they might want to move him to the offensive side of the ball.

"I like to think of myself as a defensive lineman," said Smith on a CFL conference call for prospects on Tuesday. "I've played both. If a team drafted me to play offensive line, I'd have no problem with that. I just want to play pro football."
