Now that camp is coming to a close, what’s the toughest adjustment for a new player to a CFL team?
If you could take any two CFL Defensive Tackles, other than the guys in SK, who would you want on your interior defensively?
Steele is an outstanding athlete and has really come into his own since making the jump from Hamilton. I think he’s one of the best Canadian Dlinemen in the league. Last season he had a break-out year, and he’s looking to make the next step this year. Don’t be surprised if he’s pushing for all-star recognition in 2015. He’s one to watch this year.
‘Mondo’s a beast. There’s not much you can say after that. I thought he was the best defensive lineman in the league last year, and I don’t think many if his colleagues would disagree. He’s as strong as they come in the CFL and uses the leverage, that comes with being compact and powerful, to play the run and rush the passer effectively.
Sewell and Steele’s ability to collapse the pocket is a nightmare for opposing QBs. Their ability to subtract the area in which a QB is able to step into the pocket and throw the ball is key, especially in an Edmonton defence that always wants to be aggressive on passing downs.
What teams are you excited to see play against each other early on in the CFL season?
***NOW...here's a question for you guys...leave your answer in the comment section because they'll be used on a piece that will be posted at the beginning of the year. There's no wrong answer, and you can be as candid as you'd like.***
