TODAY’S TV HIGHLIGHTS SOCCER TENNIS I T is a risk few Canadian Football League teams can take, especially so for an outfit desperate to upgrade its homegrown talent. That’s why the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — along with their eight CFL rivals — will be paying particular attention to the Canadian draft prospects who will be attending National Football League rookie mini- camps this weekend. If a prospect jumps off the page down south it could not only affect where he is selected in next Tuesday’s Canadian draft but, should he land a free- agent contract, whether he is available at all when CFL rookie camps open May 27. The Bombers might be the best and most recent case of the risk involved here, after drafting Andy Mulumba second overall in 2013, but seeing him spend the last two seasons with the Green Bay Packers. As well, in 2012 the organization drafted Christo Bilukidi 21st overall but he has spent the last three years bouncing from the Oakland Raiders to the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. Just one Canadian was selected in last week’s NFL draft — defensive tackle Christian Covington was grabbed by the Houston Texans in the sixth round — but two others signed free- agent deals afterward, with UNLV offensive lineman Brett Boyko landing a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and Yale running back Tyler Varga with the Indianapolis Colts. On top of that, a number of players who figure to have their names called early in the CFL draft are headed to rookie camps down south this weekend. And that uncertainty can mess up a CFL team’s draft plan. The New York Giants, who have Toronto product and University of Western Ontario grad Kevin Abrams as their assistant GM, have invited Simon Fraser receiver Lemar Durant to rookie camp, along with offensive linemen Sean Mc- Ewen and Sukh Chungh of the Calgary Dinos, Montreal Carabins linebacker Byron Archambault, Regina defensive back Tevaughn Campbell, Western defensive lineman Daryl Waud and Richmond O- lineman Jacob Ruby. Connecticut O- lineman Alex Mateas, whom the Bombers had in Winnipeg last week for a workout, will attend New York Jets mini- camp while Canadian quarterback Brandon Bridge, a product of South Alabama, will get a look- see from the Dallas Cowboys. Of note, University of Manitoba Bisons slotback Nic Demski — who did attend an NFL pro day this winter — was not invited to a rookie camp and that could actually help his draft position next week. Demski, ranked ninth in the CFL Scouting Bureau’s last predraft rankings, and Laval O- lineman Danny Groulx ( ranked fifth) are the only two prospects not heading to NFL rookie camp. The Bombers hold the second, 11th and 15th picks in next Tuesday’s draft and can ill afford to have their selections not at training camp. GM Kyle Walters is in Montreal this week for the CIS East West Bowl featuring the top prospects for the 2016 CFL Draft and planned to work out Laval O- lineman Karl Lavoie, who was injured during last month’s CFL Draft Evaluation Camp. ed. tait@ freepress. mb. ca Twitter: @ WFPEdTait Blue can’t afford any draft- day flubs By Ed Tait MORRY GASH / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Can’t tag me Los Angeles Dodgers baserunner Andre Ethier attempts to evade the tag at home plate from Milwaukee Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado during the fourth inning of an MLB game at Miller Park in Milwaukee Monday.
