The Ottawa REDBLACKS selected offensive lineman Mark Korte (Core-tay) with their first-round pick, fourth overall, in Thursday’s 2018 CFL Draft.
The Spruce Grove, Alberta native was a key component in the University of Alberta’s offensive line last year that helped REDBLACKS’ 2017 draft pick Ed Ilnicki rush for a new conference single-season record 1,468 yards. Korte’s performance earned him Canada West’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman honours.
“He’s a young, very athletic player who’s not afraid to compete,” said REDBLACKS GM Marcel Desjardins. “We were zeroed in on the offensive line for sure and we’re happy Mark was available.”
