The Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders drafted University of Calgary Dinos’ wide receivers in the first round of the CFL Draft.
The Stampeders selected wide receiver Anthony Parker with their first round pick, number three overall. While the Eskimos selected wide receiver Nathan Coehoorn with their first round pick, number five overall.
Coehoorn was the second player selected by the Eskimos, as they originally drafted Scott Mitchell, an offensive lineman from Rice University, number two overall. Mitchell was the top ranked player by the Canadian Football League Scouting Bureau, but was passed over by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who drafted linebacker Henoc Muamba from St. Francis Xavier University number one overall.
