CFL Draft 2017: Big Board Version 2.0 (Top-30 Prospects)

I’ve long expressed my uneasiness towards the Winnipeg Blue Bombers possibly making Iowa nose tackle Faith Ekakitie the first overall pick in tonight’s draft. Most mock drafts around the CFL-realm, however, have Ekakitie going number one, and based on reports that Ekakitie and the Bombers have begun contract negotiations, I’d have to say the consensus belief among pundits is likely spot-on.

This doesn’t mean I agree with taking Ekakitie with the first overall pick, though. And that’s where the big board comes in.

Here are my top-30 prospects ahead of the 2017 CFL Draft.
