2016: CFL Draft RD 7 (56), Montreal Alouettes
Zepeda will have another opportunity to showcase his abilities to the Alouettes’ top brass, after suffering a season-ending foot injury during the team’s 2016 rookie camp. The 24-year-old defensive back was selected in the seventh round (56th overall) by the Alouettes in the 2016 CFL Canadian draft. Zepeda had a senior year to remember with the Université de Montréal Carabins, intercepting four passes in 2015, while making 34.5 tackles and defending six passes. In 2014, he was a key contributor to the Carabins’ Vanier Cup victory at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium over the McMaster Marauders.
