Top Canadians: Jon Cornish led all regular running backs in yards per carry last season while guard Dimitri Tsoumpas continues to establish himself among the CFL's elite blockers.

Breakout Canadians: Guard Steve Myddelton came on strong last season, proving himself as a solid CFL starter. On the other side of the ball, look for Corey Mace to become a force on the D-Line as he enters his first full CFL season.

Other Potential Canadian Starters: WR Arjei Franklin, OC Tim O'Neill, SB Jabari Arthur, OL J'Michael Deane

Canadians To Watch: Defensive back Eric Fraser played a lot of second down snaps last season and hopes to expand on his role in 2011. After two seasons spent as a developmental player, Jon Gott could push for full time duty on the offensive line.

Top Canadian Rookies: With offensive linemen J'Michael Deane, John Bender, and Spencer Wilson, receiver Anthony Parker, and defensive ends Junior Turner and Akwasi Antwi, Calgary appears well stocked for the future. Deane, in particular, could have an impact as a freshman.

In The Pipeline: Defensive tackle Brian Bulcke and receiver Spencer Armstrong are both expected to explore their NFL options after the lockout.
