The 6-foot-3, 304-pound Ottawa native is the front runner, in due large part to his shotgun snapping abilities. "He just looks to me like being a centre is a natural thing for him," said head coach Doug Berry. "He's real comfortable with it, and some guys don't like the extra burden on their shoulders."

AARON FIACCONI

The 6-foot-3, 304-pound Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., product had the job last season, but he's been pushed out by Khan. Berry said Fiacconi, who is a natural guard, isn't totally out of the picture, however.

THE REST

Draft pick Dominic Picard, Matt Sheridan and Marc Parenteau also have done some snapping in camp, but it looks like a two-horse race. Sheridan is a starting guard, so he's just doing it for insurance purposes. "Parenteau has been a nice surprise because he can play all three positions," said offensive line coach Mike Gibson. "He's pretty comfortable at centre, which is surprising."
