Top Canadians: Defensive tackle Doug Brown remains amongst the CFL's top defenders and guard Brendon LaBatte has been as consistent as they come since being chosen in the first round in ‘08.

Breakout Canadian: With the release of veteran Brock Ralph, second year wide receiver Cory Watson will be counted on as a full-time starter this season.

Other Potential Canadian Starters: OC Obby Khan, OG Steve Morley, FS Ian Logan, SB Kito Poblah

Canadians To Watch: James Green makes the move from free safety to fullback to replace Jon Oosterhuis. Don Oramasionwu continues to attempt to entrench himself as the heir apparent to Brown.

Top Canadian Rookies: The Bombers Canadian contingent is bolstered by the simultaneous arrivals of three first round picks. Linebacker Henoc Muamba (1st overall) and receivers Jade Etienne (4th overall) and Kito Poblah (first round of supplemental draft) should all contribute, with Poblah expected to have the most immediate impact.

In The Pipeline: Winnipeg doesn't currently have any draftees playing in the NFL or NCAA. However, it is possible that either or both of the offensive linemen drafted last month, Brendan Dunn and Paul Swiston, could return to school for more seasoning, with an eye towards developing them for the future.
