CFL DraftEdit

The 2020 CFL Draft will take place on April 30, 2020.[2] By virtue of finishing as Grey Cup champions in the previous season, the Blue Bombers will select last in each round of the eight-round draft, not including any traded picks. The team made one trade, acquiring Grey Cup starting quarterback, Zach Collaros, and a fifth-round pick from the Toronto Argonauts for the Blue Bombers' third-round pick.[3] The list below is subject to change once the league announces any conditional trades or if the league awards territorial picks that were re-introduced in the 2019 CFL Draft.[4]
