NEW YORK - Just days before the NFL draft, at least three teams were seeking more information on Canadian college player Matt Sewell, QMI Agency has learned.

He's one of two Canadians with the best shots to be selected in Thursday's NFL draft. University of Regina defensive lineman Stefan Charles is the other.

A two-time all-Canadian offensive lineman at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ont., Sewell played in the East-West Shrine Game in January, a post-season all-star game for departing college players.

It's still a long shot whether any NFL teams would select the Milton, Ont., native on Saturday – when the last four rounds (4-7) of the draft are held – but after the last pick of Round 7 is made early Saturday night, all undrafted players become free agents, able to sign with any team.

For Sewell, the last-minute interest expressed by three NFL teams might foretell such a signing.
