Interesting. Calgary has 4 QB's on the list, including Jake Browning who will likely be cut by the Vikings. ABLFQB's - always be looking for quarterbacks! Montreal has no QB's on their list.

Just a reminder that this isn't the complete list, just a ten player sample.

I don't know (or really care much) about NCAA......anybody know if any of these guys are any good?

I know a few names only. The interesting thing to me is teams placing players on there who actually might come to the CFL versus ones who never will. I think some team had Kyler Murray on their list last year. Not sure why. First overall pick in the NFL draft will never set foot in Canada. Smart teams put players on who actually may end up here. Like Jake Browning. Highly sought after UDFA in the NFL, but may not stick on a roster.

Can someone explain how the neg list works? Do you just tell the CFL you want this guy on your list before anyone else?

Naylor did a story on it last year.

Yes, you just put the guy on before he's signed or on someone else's list. This is one of those bizarro things that's uniquely CFL.

You never know... 3rd overall Trent Richardson ended up in Canada eventually. He wasn't any good but still, he showed up!

I think you want a balance of guys who might show up soon along with some "home run" shots.

That's fair. Balancing makes sense. Maybe target a few highly touted dudes who like the marijuana a bit too much for the NFL 😄

From this year's list, Barriere is the guy who most interests me. Eastern Washington is a breeding ground for CFL quarterbacks:
 

Quote

Erik Meyer, the first in Eastern Washington?s string of All-American quarterbacks since 2005, nearly swallowed his whistle the first time he saw Eric Barriere operate.
...
?I wasn?t expecting Barriere to play the way he is this early,? Meyer said. ?He has a little bit of Vernon Adams? game, but with his own thing going on.?

Adams, another Los Angeles product, lauded Barriere.

?He?ll be better than me,? Adams said on Twitter. ?He?s definitely already faster.?
...
Matt Nichols, a veteran CFL quarterback, was EWU?s quarterback the next four seasons (2006-09), setting a Big Sky Conference career passing record (12,616 yards).

He was an All-American and the Big Sky Conference?s Offensive MVP.

Replacing Nichols was SMU transfer Bo Levi Mitchell (2010-11), who led EWU a to a FCS national championship his first year in Cheney before winning the Walter Payton Award in 2011.

Mitchell, a two-time CFL MVP who has led the Calgary Stampeders to two Grey Cup titles, has the attention of NFL teams. He recently worked out for a few, including the Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts.

A year after Mitchell exhausted college eligibility, the electric dual-threat Adams starred at EWU the next three seasons, becoming an All-American and Walter Payton Award finalist. He transferred to Oregon his senior year, where he helped the Ducks reach the Alamo Bowl.

I wouldn't give the Bombers credit for Grant since he was on Hamilton's neg list not ours.  They do get credit for snagging him when the Ticats cut him in camp though.

Fans and media: "So just who's on these neg lists anyway".

CFL: "It's a secret.

Fans and media: "Why"

CFL :"Because, anyway here's  a list"

Fans and media: "Why not do that all the time, hey, that last trade you made included a neg list player, who was it?"

CFL: "Cant tell you, it's a secret"

McKay went 19th overall in this year's NFL Draft... he's fast!

Bryant is a 5th year, senior transfer from Clemson playing for Missouri this year (GO TIGERS!)... he was displaced on Clemson's starting roster last year after game 4 by Lawrence, but he's good...

Bently could be interesting though and possibly a CFL candidate down the road... he's decent and has played well at South Carolina, ranked just outside of the top 30 in the NCAA for all D1 QBs, 7th in the SEC...

They have none on the list they provided. It's bigger then just 10 players.
