    They are big time long shots to even make the practice squad. Most of the best HS football players in Canada go to NCAA schools. In Ontario many seem to end up at a MAC school. The skill level in the CIS probably slots somewhere between D2 and D3. Plus the rule differences make it hard to determine how good they can be. Matt Sewell went to McMaster which is a power program in the CIS.

    Still wish them the best of luck!The odd one makes it. There is Vaughn Martin, from my hometown, who played at Western and was drafted a few years back by San Diego. Signed by Miami this offseason. And I went to elementary school with a guy, Tim Tindale, who played for the Bills for a bit. Though he was 7 years older.

    A buddy of mine went to MAC, he said Sewell is the real deal. He was also just drafted top 10 in the CFL. But I highly doubt either guy makes the team.

    Guys that big tend to stick around somehow.

    The Jets have a guy by the name of Vladimir Ducasse, he's from my town, he's complete trash on the field, but because he's so big he's stuck with the Jets, plus they suck so it works out for him.

    Sewell was just waived. Titans say he left the team. Per Wyatt
