BC Lions Take Seven in 2019 CFL Draft
(Vancouver) Another successful night at the draft table has yielded seven new BC Lions as GM Ed Hervey and his player personnel staff draw months of work to a close.
The Lions had to wait until the seventh selection of the third round (26th overall) to snag their first player of the night following a pair of transactions last year which cost them choices in the first two rounds this year.
Ultimately, the Leos added four players on defence and three on offence including:
Rnd Ovrl Player Pos School
3 26th Noah Robinson LB Missouri
4 33rd Hakeem Johnson DB Western
5 42nd Jonathan Harke OL Alberta
6 49th Charles Nwoye DL UBC
6 51st Mario Villamizar FB Laurier
7 60th Brad Lyons DL Simon Fraser
8 69th Jamel Lyles RB Manitoba
BC Lions season tickets for 2019 start at just $29.90 per seat. Single game tickets for all home games are also on sale now.
BC Lions Training Camp presented by Sun Peaks Resort kicks off in Kamloops on Sunday, May 19.
