REGINA, Sask. – A dozen Canada West athletes are set to take part in this weekend's Canadian Football League Combine in Regina, as they look to impress ahead of May's CFL Draft.

The CFL's main combine follows regional events in Montreal (March 10), Toronto (March 17), and Regina (March 23), and is part of the inaugural Mark’s CFL Week, which has brought fans, players, and other representatives from across the CFL to Regina.


Leading the way in terms of Canada West content at the Combine are the Calgary Dinos, who will have five players showcased, while the Saskatchewan Huskies (3), Regina Rams (2), Manitoba Bisons (1), and UBC Thunderbirds (1) are also represented in the Queen City.

This season Canada West fans will have unprecedented access to the combine, as for the first time ever, CFL.ca will broadcast player one-on-ones and individual drills live from Evraz Place in Regina as the stars of tomorrow showcase their talents to try and improve their stock ahead of the 2017 CFL Draft.


Coverage begins on Friday, March 24 with the bench press, where prospects showcase their brute strength, followed the 40-yard dash on Saturday morning where players blaze through the ultimate test of speed and acceleration. Coverage culminates with the Saturday afternoon airing of player 1-on-1s and on-field testing, where prospects strap up the pads and prove to scouts and general managers why they should be cemented on the draft boards of teams across the league.
