Lucky Whitehead and Tim Bonner are CFL teammates
Lucky: 20 catches (on 27 targets) for 339 yards and the touchdown.
Tim: four tackles and two sacks in three games.
So we’re looking at anywhere from 9-13 FAU players who should realistically open the 2021 NFL season (James Pierre could start for the Steelers) on either a 53, IR, or practice squad. It could be as high as 16-17. Plus these two in Canada and a few others (Tevin Homer, Jakobi Smith) who are still in the Arena League.
Tim has three sacks and a forced fumble in four games.
Lucky is at 24/421/1 across five games. Only two other CFLers have more receiving yards this year.
Also, Lucky did this.
