King's students selected to be part of 2018 CFL draft
May 4, 2018
Jean-Gabriel Poulin (Economics) and Jordan Beaulieu (Psychology) were two of six Mustangs on the current Western roster that were selected in the 2018 CFL Canadian Draft.
These six selections give the Mustangs the second highest number of picks. The Mustangs are right behind the Calgary Dinos who had eight players chosen.
Poulin went to the Montreal Alouettes in the third round, 23rd overall. A leader of the Mustangs defensive unit that was one of the top groups in the nation this season, Poulin racked up 130 tackles, 98 solo, in 30 regular-season contests throughout his Western career. The linebacker is a two-time U SPORTS All-Canadian, two-time OUA All-Star, and was also a member of the OUA All-Rookie Team in 2014.
Right behind Poulin was Beaulieu, who heads to the Edmonton Eskimos as the 24th overall pick. Beaulieu has been a standout since his first year as a Mustang, when he recorded two interceptions, two sacks, and averaged 2 tackles per game. He was named an OUA All-Rookie team member. Since then, his resume has expanded to total 72 tackles – with 66 and seven for a loss. The defensive back has also contributed on the scoreboard, breaking up and intercept several passes throughout the course of his career, resulting in him accumulating 24 points from four touchdowns.
Congratulations to you both on making it to the major leagues.
