It’s draft night in the Canadian Football League.
League staff, front office personnel and draft eligible players have never all been in the same venue for the draft before, but the virtual draft goes one step further as it eliminates the traditional ‘war rooms’ where team officials huddle up to decide their next selection.
The Calgary Stampeders hold the first overall pick, followed by the Toronto Argonauts, B.C. Lions and Edmonton Eskimos.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have nine draft picks in total, including No. 5 and 8 overall.
The Ottawa Redblacks hold the sixth overall selection, the Saskatchewan Roughriders will pick seventh, and the Argos have the ninth pick courtesy of a trade that send quarterback Zach Collaros to the Winnipeg Blues Bombers.
Winnipeg is the only team that does not own a first round draft pick.
The draft kicks off at 8 p.m.
