University of Montreal linebacker Michael Brodrique was selected by the Edmonton Elks second in the Canadian Football League draft on Tuesday.

Brodrique is from Ste-Marthe-sur-le-Lac, in the Laurentians. The 24-year-old is six-foot-three and 216 pounds.

The Ottawa Redblacks kicked off the session by turning to Fresno State offensive lineman Dontae Bull.

Third to decide, the Saskatchewan Roughriders selected University of British Columbia defensive lineman Lake Korte-Moore.

In the first round, the Montreal Alouettes will choose the fifth and seventh places.

The Birds also have the 13th, 32nd, 39th, 41st, 59th and 68th picks overall.

Earlier Tuesday, the Montreal club drafted Swedish defensive lineman Simon Sandberg with their first pick, fifth overall, in the Canadian Tour’s world draft.

The six-foot-three, 295-pound footballer received a Pac-12 Conference Honorable Mention in 2022 with the Oregon State University Beavers, collecting 17 tackles, including two for losses in 13 games as a starter. The athlete from Karlstad also knocked down two assists.

The Alouettes then selected Australian kicker Rhys Byrns in the second round (14th overall).

Byrns (six-foot, 191 pounds) was named to the Sun Belt Conference All-Star Team in his final two seasons with the Lousiana-Lafayette University Ragin Cajuns, while leading the conference with an average of 46.3 yards per punt, including 19 punts for over 50 yards.
