The Winnipeg Blue Bombers added two picks from the 2011 CFL draft to the roster on Wednesday, as well as a free agent.

Receiver Liam Mahoney and running back Carl Volny were signed, along with free agent linebacker John Surla. All three are non-imports.

Mahoney made the switch to slotback after two years as quarterback of the Concordia Stingers in which he was named the Rookie of the Year of the CIS in 2007.

Volny was named the Offensive Player of the Year by his team and finished his collegiate career with 933 yards and eight touchdowns in 36 games over four years at Central Michigan.

Surla has been the leader on defense over his four-year career with the Mustangs with 182 tackles in 32 games, finishing in the top ten among OUA defenders every season.
