TORONTO - While Ottawa Redblacks general manager Marcel Desjardins has entertained some offers for his first overall pick in the CFL draft, he says theres a "relatively good chance" hell make the pick Tuesday night. "There has been some (interest) but not a whole lot," Desjardins said Monday. Desjardins says he knows who he wants to take first overall but is keeping it to himself. One player the Redblacks wont use the top pick on is McGill tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, the top-ranked CIS prospect for the draft who was selected in the sixth round of the NFL draft Saturday by the Kansas City Chiefs. "As much as he wouldve been a guy that we probably wouldve selected, now that he has a commitment from an NFL team theres no reason for us to go in that direction," Desjardins said. The popular sentiment is if Desjardins keeps the No. 1 pick, hell use it on Laval centre Pierre Lavertu. The six-foot-three, 300-pound Lavertu finished third in the CFL scouting bureaus season-ending top-15 rankings, and while he might not have the most upside and potential, Lavertu is generally regarded as one of the most pro-ready prospects in the draft. Drafting Lavertu first overall would address a need for Ottawa after the off-season retirement of veteran Marwan Hage, whom the Redblacks selected in the CFL expansion draft in December from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. "Offensive line is a need, no doubt," Desjardins said. "But that doesnt necessarily mean 100 per cent thats what well do. "Theres a good chance but everybody talks about a certain number of guys, whether its those two or three other top prospects. Just because theyre being written about and spoken about that doesnt mean we have them graded the same way." For the first time ever, the CFL draft will be held at night, with the first round broadcast live on TSN. That could give teams more time to talk trade with Desjardins, although the Redblacks GM isnt anticipating a lot of last-minute offers. "Maybe a little bit but I wouldnt think that dynamic would change," he said. Toronto Argonauts GM Jim Barker said the extra time could prompt some action. "Im sure from early in the morning there will be people calling and youll sit there and probably want to do something," he said. "It will make for a long day . . . but I think its kind of cool were doing it in the evening." If the Redblacks are coveting Lavertu, they might be well advised to take him with the early selection because the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who have the No. 2 selection, are said to be very interested in the Laval centre. So much so that if Ottawa does take Lavertu first overall, the Bombers would then reportedly be willing to deal the second pick to acquire some assets while moving down in the first round and selecting a player who could still help them. A potential trade partner could be the B.C. Lions, who are said to like Simon Fraser centre Matthias Goossen, the CFL scouting bureaus fifth-ranked prospect. Barker says Lavertu and Goossen are definite players of interest. "I think theres a lot of teams in this league looking for a centre . . . and theres a couple of them, he (Lavertu) and Goossen," Barker said. "Those are guys who are being looked at by all the teams. "I wouldnt say he (Lavertu) is the top prospect, hes one of the top prospects, theres no doubt about that. Hes a tough guy coming out of a good program." Hamilton could be another team on the lookout for a centre after losing Hage in the expansion draft. But the Ticats, who have the final first-round pick at No. 9 overall, would have to deal with either Ottawa or Winnipeg to be assured a shot at either Lavertu or Goossen. All nine teams will make first-round selections Tuesday night. The Edmonton Eskimos will select third overall, followed by the Montreal Alouettes. B.C. is at No. 5, with Toronto, the Calgary Stampeders and Grey Cup-champion Saskatchewan Roughriders selecting before Hamilton completes the opening round. Another offensive lineman expected to go early in the first round is Montreal tackle David Foucault. The towering six-foot-eight, 300-pound Foucault finished behind Duvernay-Tardif in the final top-15 list and although hell attend the Carolina Panthers mini camp this week, it wont be with the security of having signed an NFL contract. What makes Foucault a top prospect is much more than just his sheer size. Many CFL scouts believe he has the potential to develop into a dominant left tackle, a key spot on any offensive line. Should Edmonton pass on Foucault, its very likely Montreal will take him with the fourth selection. Another first-round prospect is Concordia Stingers defensive lineman Quinn Smith, who finished ranked fourth on the top-15 list following an impressive showing at the CFL combine. The six-foot-two, 305-pound Toronto native was solid on both sides of the football. Last week, Smith announced he had tested positive for the anabolic steroid Stanozolol prior the combine. If Smiths B sample also tests positive, hell receive a two-year ban from the CIS, thus ending his college career. But in the CFL, Smith would be deemed a first-time offender of its drug policy and be subjected to mandatory testing and an assessment, followed by counselling. A second offence would trigger a three-game suspension. The agreement also calls for a one-year ban for a third offence and a lifetime suspension for a fourth. Ryan Kalil Womens Jersey . 1.

An investigation over the shooting is ongoing.The match is a big one for both sides.Roma pulled level on points with Serie A leader Juventus after it won and the Bianconeri lost Wednesday, while Napoli is still trying to shake off a slow start that has left the southern club seven points behind the leaders.Later Saturday, Juventus visits struggling Empoli and Inter Milan meets last-place Parma. On Sunday, third-place AC Milan hosts Palermo at the San Siro.Here are some things to know about this weekends Italian league matches:___PRECAUTIONARY MEASURESThe Napoli-Roma match will kick off at 3 p.m. local time (1400 GMT), an earlier-than-usual start time for matches on Saturdays in Serie A, as a precautionary measure to avoid violence.Roma is planning to make the short trip to Naples by airplane rather than bus, and the squads hotel is being kept secret.Weve been making appeals and releasing precautionary messages for months, Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi said. Its going to be a risky day. ... I just hope that things calm down.Napoli coach Rafa Benitez didnt want to discuss the violence concerns.Im only concerned with the football that is played, Benitez said. I hope its just a regular football match and Im only focusing on the technical aspects.___ROAD BUMPSJuventus allowed an injury-time goal in a 1-0 loss at Genoa on Wednesday for its first domestic defeat of the season.Combined with Juves struggles in the Champions League, the Turin side has gained only one point in its last four away matches.You cant allow a goal in the 90th minute, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. And we conceded it with a 6-on-2 situation inside our area.To win the title you dont need 128 points, you need to earn one more point than the second-place squad, Allegri added.dddddddddddd This will serve as a lesson for us. If you hit posts, crossbars and (Genoa goalkeeper Mattia) Perin makes two great saves, you can go home with regrets for not having won, but not with a loss.

Baba needs to improve and eliminate the pauses he takes during matches and training. But hes open to learning and he has big margins for improvement, said Fiorentina manager Vincenzo Montella, who was a prolific scorer during his playing days with Sampdoria and Roma.The 21-year-old Babacar came up through Fiorentinas youth system and made his first-team debut at the age of 16.Fiorentina is also excited about 20-year-old forward Federico Bernardeschi, a member of Italys under-21 squad who has scored twice in the Europa League this season.Next up for Fiorentina, which is in 10th place, is a visit to Sampdoria on Sunday.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at www.twitter.com/asdampf ' ' '
