Path to the draft: Mitch Picton is ready

Going pro is a dream for any athlete in any sport. To get there requires a huge amount of commitment, drive, and passion. In this ‘Path to the Draft’ series, we will be showcasing some amazing talent that is on the clock for their dream to come true. These athletes have worked hard to get noticed, have played with determination, and are now waiting to hear their name announced come draft day.

After a dismal 2015 season that saw the Regina Rams endure a humiliating 0 – 8 season, the program experienced a massive resurgence in 2016 led by their explosive passing offense. In 2016, the Rams ended the campaign with a convincing 6 – 2 record and a trip to the playoffs. Although the season concluded with a loss to UBC in the CanWest semi-finals, it re-established the Rams as a future contender for the Vanier. Just as the 2016 season was a resurgence for the Rams, it was also a coming out party for Rams’ slot receiver Mitch Picton. The 6’3, 200-pound receiver was a mismatch all season and finished his spectacular season ranked 20th on the CFL scouting bureau list.
