Love and hate the Dobson pick....but closer to loving it. He is a bluechipper. Best OL in the drsft and has a mean streak a mile long. I dont mind taking the futures approach to the 1st 2 rounds.

I suspect it’s Patty Nuefelds  last year in football in 2021 so Dobson should have an opening in 22 after college.

Kito was doing alot of work with youth in the city. Basically helping them get better at football and school. 

I actually like the idea of futures picks but I trust Walters. I mean we haven't lost a game in two years.

Idk the last time we saw an OL prospect in the draft with his size and athleticism, little on his pedigree.  Its a risk, but this is the type of guy who could start day 1 as a guard imo. Worst case scenario, both our long shot picks never come north and we dont move their rights, but we still end up with a boost to our back up lb/dbs and immediate special teams play as well as an extremely versatile athletic back who can back up and contribute at the same time. 

If either (little on both) of rene and dobson come north its an A+ draft imo.

Unless this year is a disaster for him in college he will be in the nfl in 22.  Even then, if hes healthy at next years combine he is the type of guy who can move up very far very fast.

Dobson will have NFL interest after Texas they think... So we'll see. If he comes north, he's gonna have to drop some weight. That seems about 40lbs too heavy for our field... 

Doesnt matter when you move like he does. See larry allen running down a db on what shouldve been a pick 6. But if he does drop a bit say good night.  320-325 range would probably make a big difference for him.

For sure. Lots of competition for Neufeld's spot though. Gray, and Eli are not chopped liver.

I agree. I view the Dobson pick as very risky. The NFL loves to keep a lot of OL around a lot longer than any other position. Dobson is a guy we may never see. Far riskier than DB future picks. In my mind this pick is just a hair less risky than a pick that we destroyed Joe Mack about.....Andy Mulumba.

I trust Kyle's judgement on Dobson.....I'm sure he's done his homework on his availability ...There are plenty of O Line guys in the states looking for work and they'll get priority....Unless he's super,super good I think he might be here sooner than you think...'The Roadgrader' ....I like his nickname

The futures picks like mulumba werent what sunk mack, its that the none futures guys were awful picks. We have a lotto ticket on a ni ol who is a generational athlete and would want to be here mulumba never wanted to be here imo. We have a better shot at the db  Rene who is also a big ratio breaking blue chipper, and a bunch of useful pieces. Also with the stocked offensive line depth we have we can afford the risk.

How many NI Dbs to the Bombers need?🤠

Always good to have them on STs.  Exume was such a gem in 2019 maybe hoping for some of that form these guys.

I could very well see the Bombers starting Two in the secondary in the near future.  Rene can play CB.  Kramdi was a SLB in college, but can play anywhere in the secondary at the pro level.  Weekes is supposedly a natural safety.  Add in the Halett brothers and the Bombers probably have the deepest national DB room in the CFL.

That's the biggest difference here.  We couldn't afford to hit and miss in the draft back in the Joe Mack days.  Thanks to Kyle Walter's we now have the best Canadian depth in the league so we can afford to take some risks trying to get a couple of high impact players down the road.  On top of that we've got another draft class from last season coming in to compete with the guys we drafted this year. Also this was a futures heavy draft due to the pandemic.  A lot of eligible players opted to hold off on the draft this season and go back to college so the league expended the availability of nationals who are playing in thr ncaa and added some guys to the draft who we know are going back to school for one more year.  There is no comparing this to what Joe Mack did imo.

Imo just the guys we will have in camp from the last two years of drafting is a grade A batch. We have a bunch of very athletic canadian mafia guys coming in to scrap for spots. If we get one futures guy its gonna be a big win fall.  And honestly Dobson and the mafia sound very confident that he will end up in blue and gold. Usually they talk about guys very tentatively.  Stuff like, the can do this and they can bring that. They have opportunities down south but we think they'd fit in really well if that doesnt pan out etc. 

Both groups have been saying when he gets here, he is gonna be a road grader etc etc.  And instead of talking about potential to make and impact they talk about him like hes a vet and you know what to expect. I dont think any shenanigan's are a foot, I suspect hes the surest thing, highest graded guy theyve picked thus far.

Dobson flat out said that he will pursue the NFL so I'm not sure where you get the notion that he exuded confidence at being blue and gold. He said all the right things after being drafted and was very complimentary to the Bombers but he made it very clear he desires to play the highest level of football he can. That doesn't mean he is a shoe-in for the NFL, but he will keep that option open as long as he can. He is a very similar type of pick to Dakoda Shepley imo.
