After tight end Luke Willson was the lone Canadian selected in the NFL draft, five of his countrymen agreed to terms with NFL teams by Sunday afternoon as undrafted free agents.

The Tennessee Titans added arguably the two top prospects from the Canadian college ranks -- defensive lineman Stefan Charles of the University of Regina, and Matt Sewell, a two-time all-Canadian offensive lineman at McMaster University in Hamilton.

The others are long snapper Jorgen Hus also of Regina (with the St. Louis Rams), defensive lineman and Montreal native Andy Mulumba of Eastern Michigan University (with the Green Bay Packers) and Laval, Que., linebacker Carl-Olivier Prime of Wagner College in New York City (with the Indianapolis Colts).

The CFL Scouting Bureau ranks Charles No. 2, Sewell No. 4 and Mulumba No. 5 for the league's May 6 entry draft.

Sewell played in the East-West Shrine Game in January, a post-season all-star game for departing collegians.

The Seattle Seahawks drafted Willson -- a native of LaSalle, just outside Windsor, Ont. -- in the fifth round on Saturday.
