Riley is expected to be with the Riders for CFL training camp — whenever that may be. The same can’t be said for defensive tackle Neville Gallimore, who was Saskatchewan’s eighth-round pick (71st). The Dallas Cowboys selected Gallimore in the third round (82nd overall) of the 2020 NFL draft so it’s unlikely he will play in the CFL right away.
“He’s a guy we could get down the road and he still could be a top player in our league,” O’Day said. “I wish him the best in the NFL. If it doesn’t work out, then we’ll see if there is an opportunity for him to come here.”
Saskatchewan’s remaining picks were receiver Kian Schaffer-Baker of Guelph (fourth round), linebacker Junior Allen, also of Guelph (fourth round), defensive back Vincent Dethier of McGill (fifth round), running back Jonathan Femi-Cole from Western (sixth round) and offensive lineman Jesse Lawson of Carleton (seventh round).
