Reigning Vanier Cup champion Adam Sinagra of the Calgary Dinos highlights a group of 10 U SPORTS players on the December prospect list released by the Canadian Football League’s Scouting Bureau Tuesday in advance of the 2020 Draft.
A year after capturing the Hec Crighton Trophy and being named a finalist for the Lieutenant Governor Athletic Award for U SPORTS Male Athlete of the Year, Sinagra completed 159 of 256 passes and ranked fifth in the nation with 287.7 passing yards per game in six contests in the 2019 season. He also threw for 13 touchdowns. Sinagara, who was ranked 18th on the initial prospect list in August, rose to No.14 on Tuesday’s second list.
Alberta offensive lineman Carter O’Donnell is the highest-ranking U SPORTS product at No. 4, rising up seven spots from No. 11 after receiving First Team All-Canadian honours in 2019.
The first Scouting Bureau list also includes players from Laval and Carleton (two each), as well as Montreal, Queen’s, Waterloo and Western (one each). Two Ravens see their names added to the list this year – LB Jack Cassar and OL Jesse Lawson.
Last year, 52 U SPORTS players were selected in the 2019 CFL Draft out of 73 total picks (71.2 per cent).
The CFL Scouting Bureau releases its rankings three times each year, usually in the Fall, Winter and Spring. The Bureau is comprised of CFL scouts, player personnel directors and general managers from the league’s nine teams.
