The Saskatchewan Roughriders currently hold the top pick in the draft and while the football-crazed province of Saskatchewan would love to see Heenan suit up in Green and White, the Edmonton Eskimos appear to be very interested in Heenan.
"There's been a handful of teams that have shown interest in me, so we'll have to see what happens after the NFL Draft shakes down."
Crawford, who stands 6-4, 275 pounds, was the 81st overall pick. He was drafted in the third round by the Dallas Cowboys and was the first Canadian selected in the draft. The big question surrounding the Windsor, Ontario native, is, will any CFL team take a chance on drafting him, knowing that they can't match the money that Crawford will make from the Cowboys?
Linebacker Frederic Plesius from Laval is No. 5. Plesius, who redshirted at Baylor, before heading back to Quebec to take care of his sick mother, compared the coaching he received at both institutions.
He didn't appear to be concerned how a team uses him once he is drafted. There have been suggestions the 6-1, 245-pound native of Laval, Quebec, would be a prototypical CFL rush end. Plesius knows the onus is now on him to perform at a high level.
"The team that is going to draft me is the team that is going to need me," he said, "and I'm going to have to compete and take the spot off the guy in front of me."
Eastern Michigan defensive tackle Jabar Westerman, Simon Charbonneau-Campeau, a receiver from the University of Sherbrooke (Quebec), and Matt Norman, an offensive lineman from Western University (London, Ontario) round out the rest of the Top 10.
The 2012 CFL Draft starts at 3 p.m. ET on Thursday.
