Elie Bouka.. Chris Jones draft pick comes home. Thanks for the astute player draft Mr Jones, good for the Roughriders team moving forward.

Bouka, along with other recent draft picks Shepley and Judge, have placed the Riders in a excellent situation with top caliber young Canadians. Shows that the brains behind the draft of O'Day, Jones and Murphy knew what they were doing.

Has the guy ever played more than a handful of games in any season? He’s a walking bandaid.
