Dejon Brissett, REC, Virginia
With the second overall pick, the Argonauts decided to add to their already strong group of receivers taking Brissett.
The Mississauga, Ont., native was a bit of a surprising pick only in the fact that many believed the Argos would try to get him with their second first-round pick. Instead, they decided to pull the trigger on the top receiver heading into the draft.
There were some concerns about his injury history which impacted his final season at the University of Virginia where he played in 12 games but only had two catches for 18 yards. He was a far more productive player at the University of Richmond where he had 1,282 yards and nine touchdowns on 86 receptions.
Going into the season, Toronto will look to rely on their Canadian additions to be major contributors especially at the receiver position which includes players like Natey Adjei, Juwan Brescasin, Llevi Noel and Jurleigh Gittens Jr., as some of their top national pass catchers.
Brissett will not only get a chance to start but he can also be a factor on special teams that provides the Argos with some much-needed versatility.
