Another successful night at the draft table has yielded seven new BC Lions as GM Ed Hervey and his player personnel staff draw months of work to a close.

The Lions had to wait until the seventh selection of the third round (26th overall) to snag their first player of the night following a pair of transactions last year which cost them choices in the first two rounds this year.

Ultimately, the Leos added four players on defence and three on offence including:
