Here is what I know about Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who is an offensive tackle from McGill: He’s Canadian and he’s really freaking smart.
Here are a few clippings on what I’ve found out about him on the internet.
Duvernay-Tardif is only the second McGill player to be taken after Randy Chevrier, a defensive lineman/long snapper with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders, went in the seventh round to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2001.
Duvernay-Tardif was twice an All-Canadian at McGill and last year was named Canadian university football’s top lineman. A medical student, Duvernay-Tardif was also named as the CFL scouting bureau’s top prospect for the league’s draft Tuesday night.
Duvernay-Tardif, a converted defensive lineman, has been firmly entrenched atop the CFL central scouting bureau’s list of the top-15 prospects for this year’s draft but his NFL stock skyrocketed following his pro day in Montreal in March.
You can learn more about Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at his personal website.
People seem to be really high on “LDT.” There were a few tweets immediately after the pick that suggested LDT will be the starting right tackle for the Chiefs in the next year or two. He’s a smart kid with a physical mentality, according to scouting reports. Seems like a project in the short term, however.
I’ll give the pick a C, but I really have no idea what to think of him. What do you think, Addicts who are more informed than I am?
