And as far as 96's the only one that in my opinion would be on the radar is Mcmanaman from Ch'town
Neither of those players will be drafted very high. As much as Jacob is talented, he is 5'5" and 130lbs....legitemately! Someone could gamble on him as a later pick, although he has to go in the first 8 rounds because he's 15. I'm pretty sure he's as close to being wildcats property as you can get without signing! his father is a scout for the organization.
Leblanc IMO is putting up points, but thats not indicative of his overall game. It will be clearer after xmas (halifax tournament/gatineau tournament) on where he will end up.
PEI - Larter and Steele i would say are the only sure bets at this point to be drafted. It's a very weak year in PEI.
IMO - it's a very weak year in atlantic canada overall, and i mean that in the sense taht there are very few first round calibre players. There are a few, but not many. Noel from NFLD is probably the best from the maritimes at this point. Beyond him, and 2-3 other players, there are a bunch of players that are able to be selected in rounds 4-12. As you all know, each team has different views on all players! that's what makes the draft fun to follow and watch
