Ben Heenan an O-lineman from Saskatchewan U taken #1 overall by the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Eskimos on the clock
Lions just made a trade to claim the second pick from Edmonton. Announcement to come soon
The BC Lions have traded up to the #2 spot.
The 2nd pick came by way of a trade with the Esks who take Lions 4th, 14th & 28th in exchange for 2nd and 20th picks.
Trade made official. BC is now on the clock...I'm thinking Westerman or Plesius.
#94 Jabar Westerman
Position: Defensive Line
Hometown: Brampton, Ontario, Canada
High School: Notre Dame Catholic
Earned a letter in his first year as a junior college transfer...Played in 11 games, earning nine starts on the defensive line, including the last eight in a row...Recorded 22 tackles on the year with three tackles-for-loss of three yards, 1.5 sacks for two yards...Had one fumble recovery, against Central Michigan (Sept. 18)...Had at least one tackle in all 11 games in which he saw action...
BC Lions go ahead and take Jabar Westerman out of Eastern Michigan. Great pick. Big hole to fill and the Lions improve a position of strength
Lions traded away the 4th Pick but retain their first round pick. Curious to see who's left at the 7th spot.
