As the Ottawa Redblacks and the rest of the world look to flatten the curve and help stop the spread of the coronavirus there has been a lot going on in the CFL. Out of all that’s happened, Thursday night’s CFL Draft is one of the biggest moments of the Redblacks’ off-season. Coming off a 3-15 season in 2019 it will be tough to bounce back and make it top a Grey Cup anytime soon but after bringing in Nick Arbuckle and Cleyon Laing it looks like the Ottawa Redblacks have really come together and most recently they’ve been able to get even better in the draft.
On Thursday’s 2020 CFL Draft the Ottawa Redblacks made 8 selections, mostly improving on the defensive side of the ball. Drafting Adam Auclair and Daniel Basambombo from the Laval Rouge et Or’s defense the team really got better and Mike Benevides will enjoy having the young Canadians on the defense.
Also being improved is the Ottawa Redblacks offensive line. They’ve already established a good group of Canadian linemen from past drafts but when they saw Laval’s Ketel Asse fall to the eighth round the Ottawa Redblacks could have seriously found their next big offensive lineman. Standing tall at 6 foot 7, 300 pounds Asse was looked at by multiple NFL teams and even played in the NFLPA Bowl last year so him being with the Redblacks now could be a big move for the future as they continue to build their legacy.
