Dion Pellerin, RB/FB, Waterloo
Sticking the offensive side of the ball in the fifth round, the Argos decided to add to their depth in the backfield. Pellerin showed an ability to get into the endzone in his final year at Waterloo scoring 11 touchdowns after he had nine in his first three years combined.
He likely won’t be an every down back but he could see himself in a similar role to Declan Cross and be a key contributor on special teams. At the same time, he did register a 69-yard run which shows that he is capable of being explosive but that might be tougher to achieve against CFL defenders.
Samuel Baker, REC, Saskatchewan

With their final pick of the draft, the Argos surprisingly grabbed another receiver in Baker who had 70 catches for 980 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2019.
The Argos clearly liked the production Baker was able to provide and the six-foot-three, 210-pound receiver will get a chance to develop behind a strong group of Canadian receivers.
This pick was just one of the many the Saskatchewan Huskies to get taken but many of them were offensive lineman. Colton Klassen and Baker were the only none offensive lineman and defensive lineman taken in the draft.
It will be interesting to see which players can make an impact if and when the season happens and you can bet the Canadian talent, especially the local players, will be itching to show their stuff.
