Combine Spotlight: CFC100s top results in two categories

It was the week every pro prospect has been waiting for, and two former CFC100 made sure scouts would remember their name after putting in the best overall time in two different categories at the CFL Combine.

CFC100 Daniel Petermann out of McMaster put on the fastest display in the 40 yard dash finishing with a 4.54, which will likely help his case after not getting ranked on the top 20 prospects by the CFL Scouting Bureau. Petermann hauled in 181 receptions for 2320 yards and 16 touchdowns during his four year career with the Marauders.

CFC100 Jackson Bennett out of Ottawa didn’t win the flat line speed contest, but he was the top prospect in the shuttle finishing with a time of 4.09 seconds. Bennett took a dip in the December rankings by the CFL Scouting Bureau, so a good showing at the combine might’ve helped raise his draft stock once again. Bennett has proven to be one of the most versatile linebackers in the country during his time with Gee-Gees racking up 108.5 tackles, 9 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries and 3 interceptions.

The CFL Draft will take place on May 3rd in Toronto.
