    Only Canadians can be drafted in the CFL draft. Only a few non-Canadians can play in the CFL & no non-Canadians can be drafted.

    Good luck to Brian. A long career in the CFL can be a comfortable living doing what you love. And if he really excells he will get a shot or two in an NFL camp.

    Outside of Matt Reynolds, who is our best bet to make an NFL team next year? Just like this season we are very young so we don't have a ton of people who would even qualify. But if he can come back healthy I see Pendleton getting a lot of looks. He is the kind of player who can really open eyes with his freaky athleticism at combines and pro workouts.

    "There will likely be another 10 utes picked before a single byu player is picked in the NFL draft."

    Name the 10 Utes who will be drafted ahead of Matt Reynolds in the first round of the next NFL draft.

    Really Ken? You banking on that? After the utes tank to the bottom of the PAC, highly unlikely that a single ute will be picked especially from a losing team. The utes are losing their luster when it comes to draft picks, down to what, only 2 went in this years draft.

    How many utes have won a Super Bowl?

    I see Wagner being able to contribute right away in the CFL.

    He would have been part of one of the most feared LB corps in the nation this year had he stayed. In fact, one of his former teammates, Uona Kaveinga, was bestowed the honor of all-Spring practice team on Rivals earlier today.

    Congrats to Logan. A good player and a great person. Good luck to him in the CFL. Might not be the NFL, but he gets to forego a desk job for a while. Not too shabby.

    Where were you drafted wedgie? You live close enough to Canada that you could pretend to be a Canuck. Maybe they'd let you hold the cord for the coach's headphones.

    Good to hear Logan is getting a chance to continue playing. Any of those games on TV in the US?

    DNEWS: "BYU linebacker Jadon Wagner was drafted by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL on Sunday. He was the 44th overall pick."

    Sounds good until you realize that there are only 46 picks in the draft. thank goodness Wagner is Canadian... ( as a certain % of canadians are required to be part of each the team).
