The way we hear it, the list of NFL prospects might start, and end, with B.C. Lions DE Cameron Wake, who could draw interest from clubs looking to bolster their pass rush. The 6-3, 241-pound Wake, who played collegiately at Penn State, had 23 sacks this season, 12 more than any other player, and was voted the league's top defensive player for a second consecutive year. Wake, who’s entering his option year, also notched 65 tackles and forced five fumbles, a league high.Start, and end? One does wonder what that says about the CFL as a developmental league.
Wake, who will be 27 in January, is likely to be a 3-4 outside linebacker or pass-rush specialist in the NFL, according to the personnel man interviewed by PFW.
