"Our philosophy getting into this is to take the best players, it wasn't going to be a function of offence or defence,'' Ottawa REDBLACKS DM Marcel Dejardins said shortly after making the picks. "Really, we're sticking to that philosophy.''
Shologan played six season, all with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and generated 138 tackles and 15 quarterback sacks. Last year, he racked up a career-high 31 defensive tackles and 4 sacks while helping the Riders to the 101st Grey Cup.
Patrick Lavoie was drafted by Montreal in 2011 and spent most of his time in the tight end and slotback position. He hauled in 39 passes for 353 yards and 4 touchdowns. He impressed in his rookie season where he had 307 yards and 4 touchdowns on 33 receptions.
Joe Eppele was taken second overall in the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft by the Argonauts. The Washington State product was a starter for the majority of his last two seasons in Toronto.
James Green was also a draft pick of Toronto's in 2009 but spent the last few seasons in Winnipeg as a key contributor on special teams.
John Delahunt is an Ottawa native that played his rookie year in Hamilton in 2013. Lining up primarily as a fullback, he caught 9 passes for 104 yards and 2 touchdowns.
