Orange LB top pick in CFL draft

May 3, 2022

Orange LB top pick in CFL draft … Montreal selected Syracuse LB Tyrell Richards with the first pick overall at tonight’s CFL draft. Montreal had acquired the first pick earlier in the day from Edmonton in exchange for the 4th pick and the rights to OT Carter O’Donnell. Ottawa then took OT Zach Pelehos from the University of Ottawa with the second pick, while B.C. took Saskatchewan DE Nathan Cherry with the third pick. Here is the full, 6-round selection order. The top two prospects for the CFL draft, Alabama WR John Metchie and Penn State OLB Jesse Luketa, likely won’t be selected until later as both were selected in this past weekend’s NFL draft and likely won’t be available to CFL teams for some time.
