2013 CFL Draft: RD 1 (3) Montreal Alouettes
2013: Montreal Alouettes
Alouettes' rookie phenom safety Mike Edem made quite an impression after 18 Weeks of CFL action. Montreal's top pick in the 2013 CFL draft (third overall), immediately earned the starting position at safety, replacing veteran Kyries Hebert who moved to the linebacker corps. The 24-year-old recorded 49 defensive tackles, five quarterback sacks, three interceptions all while recovering four fumbles. He also contributed on special teams, making nine tackles this season. He recorded a personal-best eight defensive tackles on two separate occasions.
2012: Calgary Dinos (CIS)
He led the CIS Canada West conference with 55 tackles while also adding four sacks and an interception in 2012. The Brampton, ON native helped anchor a Calgary Dinos' defence that topped the Canada West conference in every category on his way to being named the Canada West defensive player of the year in 2012. Edem returns to Montreal having previously played the 2009 CIS season for the McGill University Redmen as well as one season collegiately at Champlain Regional College in Lennoxville.
