Just days after Penn State defensive hybrid Jesse Luketa was drafted in the seventh round by the Arizona Cardinals, the Canadian star has now been drafted by a second team. Luketa was selected as a territorial draft pick of the Ottawa Redblacks in the 2022 CFL draft.

As a territorial pick, Ottawa now owns the CFL rights to the former Penn State player should he choose to explore a path in the CFL. That means having to wait out to see how Luketa catches on with the NFL team that drafted him, or if he tasks a path to another NFL team as is sometimes the case for a late-round draft pick as cuts are made to rosters.

Luketa is a native of Ottawa, so the selection of Luketa makes plenty of sense for the Redblacks. Luketa was the only Penn State player selected in the CFL draft this year.
