As DraftKings gets ready to welcome the Canadian Football League and contests to the site, it’s time to get a little more familiar with the players you’ll be picking for rosters.
That being said, in the spirit of Key & Peele’s East/West Bowl videos, let’s start with some of the CFL’s best names – who just so happen to also be pretty good players:
The 5 Best Names In The CFL
5. QB Bo Levi Mitchell, Calgary Stampeders
If Bo Levi Mitchell isn’t the ideal name for a quarterback, then I don’t know what is. Mitchell threw for 26 touchdowns and 4,551 yards last season for Calgary, securing a 96.8 QB rating.
4. WR Adarius Bowman, Edmonton Eskimos
Another ideal name for the wide receiver position, Bowman is among the top receivers in the CFL. He scored 7 touchdowns while compiling 1,304 receiving yards in 17 games for the high-powered Eskimos offense last season.
3. LB Bear Woods, Montreal Alouettes
Limited to just two games last season after a barrage of injuries, Woods is one of the elite linebackers in the CFL. The name is awesome, but the hair might be even better.
2. LT SirVincent Rogers, Ottawa Redblacks
The former University of Houston stand-out has resurrected his career up north in Ottawa. One of the league’s premier left tackles, it’s not Vincent… it’s SIR Vincent, to you!
1. LB Solomon Elimimian, BC Lions
Gesundheit! That name’s a mouth-full. Another premier linebacker with a season ravaged by injuries, Elimimian – say that 10 times fast – is looking reclaim his spot as the top linebacker in the CFL.
