There are likely two safe bets when it comes to the 2014 CFL Draft; offensive linemen will dominate the early selections, and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will look to solidify one of their most glaring positional needs with the second-overall pick. Justin Houston Jersey . According to the CFL Scouting Bureaus January rankings, four of the top five Canadian prospects line-up on the offensive side of the trenches, which is good news for Bombers general manager Kyle Walters. With only one selection in the first two rounds — Walters sent his second-round pick to Saskatchewan in the days ahead of the 2013 trade deadline — the No. 2 pick is an opportunity to grab one of three top O-line prospects who are expected to play professionally in Canada. The No. 1-rated athlete overall, offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif out of McGill, is not attending this weekends CFL Combine in Toronto, opting instead to hold his own pro day in Montreal for both NFL and Canadian scouts. This leaves Laval University centre Pierre Lavertu as a very likely target for either the expansion Ottawa Redblacks who select first overall, or for the Blue Bombers. Lavertu would be an attractive choice for Winnipeg with the free agent departure of starting centre Justin Sorensen this past winter. "(I am a) centre, so it will help then if Im going to be a centre at the next level," said the 6-foot-3 300-pound All-Canadian. "But if I have to play guard or something like that, Im going to do it." Lavertu is both confident and aware of the two teams who may call his name on May 13. "I figure that will happen. Its going to be cool if Im drafted by one of those teams. I watch a lot of the websites of Winnipeg and Ottawa just to learn more about these teams." The offensive lineman that may have the most to prove during Combine weekend is 6-foot-4 294-pound Matthias Goossen out of the non-CIS school Simon Fraser. "I want to make sure that whatever I do here solidifies what Ive done in the season, and it can help show more athleticism — how I compare to guys in the CIS game, because obviously all these guys here I havent played against at all. So it would great to compare myself to these guys and sort of show myself and prove my worth, and obviously continue to make myself look better for the scouts." Goossen made a huge leap in the Bureaus rankings in just four months, moving from No. 15 up to No. 5 once more scouts and CFL team reps could see what he was capable of. The Combine is an opportunity for him to cement those assessments. "I think the biggest thing, like everybody knows, is the one-on-ones and showing how to compete and showing how I actually play because when it comes down to it, theres no bench press on the field." Goossen played every position on the offensive line over the past four years at SFU, but feels his body-type is an ideal fit for the centre position at the pro level. A third potential option for the Blue Bombers, if they desire an O-lineman with their first pick may not fill their vacant centre spot, but he is quite hard to ignore. David Foucault stands 6-foot-8 and weighs in at 320 pounds. "I played tackle last year, but two years ago I played guard. I can play on both sides — guard and tackle — left and right… If a coach asks me what do you prefer? I prefer tackle. But I just want to play football. If you put me at guard, I will play guard. I just want to play professional football, and thats why Im here." While the CFL Combine measures many things, the versatile 24-year-old out of Montreal University feels language may be the most critical area for him to work on. "Thats why I went to Florida for training because all the stuff (at the Combine) is in English. When I came to Florida my first week, I was very bad in my English. I need to practice every day… If a scout or a coach wants to do an interview in French I will say no, I need to practice my English." Another concern for the No. 3-ranked prospect could be his physicality, as Foucault may stand prominent, but he has been known to play smaller than his stature and lack finish when engaging defenders. "(Im looking most forward to) the one-on-ones because in the combine in Tampa (Florida) I did all the tests and some drills. Some mirror drills and O-line drills. But maybe the one-on-ones I need to do well in that (this weekend). For all my tests I need to be consistent or do better." *N.B. Winnipeg traded their 2014 second-round selection along with import defensive end Alex Hall to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in exchange for non-import offensive lineman Patrick Neufeld and a 2015 fourth-round selection. Phillip Gaines Jersey . The German has taken the pole for three straight races -- winning the first two. Hes aiming for a third consecutive win at the Yeongam circuit and, most importantly, a fourth consecutive F1 championship. Patrick Mahomes II Jersey . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. http://www.thechiefsshoponline.com/Youth-Eric-Fisher-Chiefs-Jersey/ . This is the final meeting of the season between these teams.? The Capitals were 5-4 winners in a shootout Oct.TORONTO -- If the Toronto Argonauts are going to defend their CFL title, theyre going to have to do it without their Grey Cup MVP. Chad Kackert underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a broken ankle and is done for the year, the final blow in a season full of them for the Argos explosive running back. If the Argos can take any measure of comfort into Sundays East Division final versus the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, its that theyve been in this spot for the better part of the season -- having to make do without the player who led them to Grey Cup glory a year ago. "All injuries are frustrating," Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said after Tuesdays walk-through. "From his perspective it was very disappointing, it was a tough year for him with the injuries and finally felt like he was getting healthy, finally felt like he was getting his chance to get in there and do what he wanted to do all year. "Our team is very disappointed for him, but its football, but youve got to rally, and weve got guys who fortunately have played well." Milanovich said he will rely on backups Jerious Norwood and Curtis Steele to fill in for Kackert, and -- regrettably for Kackert -- it wont be the first time. The speedy running back missed 10 of 18 games this season after injuring his knee and shoulder (twice), plus suffering a concussion. The five-foot-eight, 206-pound Kackert was still Torontos leading rusher this season, running for 480 yards on 71 carries (6.8-yard average) with three touchdowns. The former New Hampshire star added 23 catches for 184 yards and a TD. A season hed surely love to forget finally came to a crashing halt Friday afternoon when he injured his ankle at practice at Rogers Centre. The disappointment in losing Kackert is tempered, Milanovich said, by the fact other players have stepped up all season when others have been hurt. "Absolutely, (Norwood and Steele) have played and played well, and played in big games, even on the road, Jerious played in Calgary and Saskatchewan and helped us get wins," Milanovich said. "It would be more nerve-wracking had they not played, and you didnt have the confidence level that theyre going to be in there and execute what youre doing. "As disappointing as it is for Kack, me as a coach and the players as a team have faith in the guys who are going to fill in for him. Were just going to have to move on, unfortunately." Norwood, who is still adjusting to Canadian football, is coming off a big game, running for 102 yards on eight carries in Torontos 23-20 loss to Montreal in the Nov. 1 regular-season finale. Norwood added four catches for 62 yards in replacing Kackert, who in a cruel twist was healthy that night and given the game off to rest for the playoffs. "It was just a terrible accident, and all our thoughts and prayers go out to Kack, but weve got to keep rolling," Norwood said. Derrick Johnson Jersey. "Its a team game, when one guy goes down, the next man has got to step up, stick together as a team. Just finish strong." Norwood, who spent five seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and was signed by the Argos on Aug. 14 as an insurance policy, has been by Kackerts house to visit his injured teammate. "I just let him know that I loved him and we loved him as a team, and we support him," Norwood said. "He was actually feeling pretty good. . . hes in a good mood, good spirits, hopefully we can go out and get a win for him." Quarterback Ricky Ray said sometimes unfortunate, crazy things happen in practice, and that it was a big blow to see a teammate go down, especially Kackert with his big-play potential. "Its tough not having him but weve got some guys that got a lot of experience this year when he was out, and guys that we feel can go in and do the job," Ray said. "It would be more difficult if Chad had been there the whole year and played every game and now were trying to find guys that can come in without any experience to fill that role. But weve got guys that got significant playing time this year that can come in and do a good job." Steeles best game came in his Argos debut, running for two touchdowns in Torontos 38-12 romp over the B.C. Lions on July 30. "We just knew the situation, (Milanovich) told us that hes got the guys, weve been in this situation before since early in the year when Kack went down and I had to step up and fill those shoes," the rookie running back said. "He just told us to be ready, prepare like we always have." The broken ankle is a heartbreaking ending for Kackert, who was a major part of Torontos success late last season. Just a couple of weeks ago, on the eve of his most recent return to the lineup -- this time after missing two weeks with a shoulder injury -- he had talked about finding solace from Rudyard Kiplings inspirational poem "If." Two lines of the poem read: "If you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two impostors just the same. . ." "(The poem offers) perspective and that if I let anything get to my character, then Ive lost," Kackert said in an interview the day before Torontos Oct. 24 game versus Winnipeg. "I kind of had to take that in and understand thats the one thing I do have that cant be taken away." Kackert was presented with last years Grey Cup MVP after powering through the Calgary Stampeders defence for 133 yards on 20 carries in Torontos 35-22 victory. He added 62 yards on eight catches out of the backfield. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
