Roughriders select Lineman Jake Bennett in the 2019 Supplemental Draft

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have selected Offensive Lineman Jake Bennett in the 2019 supplemental draft.

In doing so the Riders will forfeit their third round selection in the 2020 CFL Draft.

The six-foot-three, 290-pounder was most recently a member of the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF, suiting up at centre for the team.

“The CFL Supplemental Draft features a much smaller draft pool to choose from because of its nature. Players who were not declared Nationals in time for the CFL Draft now fall to the supplemental selection process. Each team has a chance to select the player(s) eligible but the team willing to forfeit the highest pick in the draft would receive the rights to any player eligible.”
