    If you are on a CFL team.

    Is it EASIER TO TRYOUT FOR A NFL TEAM rather then ACTUALLY GOING TO COLLGE AND PLAYING NCAA? and then 50% get drafted?

    there are many diffent factors, but considering there are maybe 450 players in the CFL and maybe 2 get the call up to the nfl each year so there's like a 0.4% chance of getting the call up if you play in the cfl. plus most of those players end up back in the CFL(see arland bruce, Albert johnson) so barely any CFL players ge the callup and stay. plus to get into the CFL you basically have to play in the NCAA or CIS, only the odd player gets to play after going to a tryout camp.

    you have to be pretty outstanding in the cfl to make the leap to the nfl. examples: doug flutie, warren moon.
    another is ricky ray. he won the grey cup with the eskimos in 2003 with mvp honours, and then made the jets the following year. he was third string and didnt really do anything. saw some time in the preseason i believe. last year he came back to the cfl and won another grey cup. he currently has 2 years left on his 3 year contract. he is still real young, 24 at the most, so i asumme he will try out in the nfl again once his contract is up.

    if you want to play football, you will. if you are good enough, you will get noticed by someone and invited to play. either way i think you need to go to college somewhere and play football.
