The 2016 Canadian Football League Draft, set for next Tuesday, is going to expand from seven to eight rounds. The league says the emergence of Canada talent at all levels is the reason the decision has been made to add nine more homegrown products to the mix.
General Managers from around the league agreed, saying this move will be good for the league. The idea being the development of even more Canadian players will be enhanced by the professional experience they gain before returning for their 5th year in the university ranks.
The CFL also announced the 2016 draft will begin at 6 p.m. CDT next Tuesday on May 10th.
