2014 NFL Draft: Chiefs check out top-ranked Canadian o-line prospect

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is the top ranked Canadian prospect entering the 2014 NFL Draft.

Weston Dressler might not be the only import from the Great White North on the Kansas City Chiefs roster come training camp. The Chiefs were among several NFL teams on hand in Canada to scout Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, an offensive lineman from McGill University who is the top-ranked Canadian prospect for the CFL Draft.

Tardif held a workout in Montreal on Tuesday where the Chiefs saw the lineman post solid numbers. He finished with a 4.94 to 5.08 in the 40-yard dash, had a 9'6 broad jump, posted 34 reps on the bench press, and had a 4.59 shuttle time.

Other teams also checking out Tardif included the New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals.

Tardif is likely the best chance for any Canadian prospect to have his name called in the seven round NFL Draft, and his NFL combine profile has him projected as a 3rd to 4th round pick. At 6'5, 315 pounds, the frame is certainly there and his talent has made him a two-time All Canadian. Even if he's not taken that high, or even selected at all, he'll earn a hefty bonus as a highly sought UDFA after the draft.
