Thomas is one of the Blue Bombers’ fourth-round draft picks in this year’s draft. The 21-year-old played in all eight games last season and finished second in the AUS conference with nine sacks, on his way to being named a second-team All Canadian for his efforts.
West, 25, played in 28 games over the last three seasons at Bishop’s University and recorded 91 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble as a linebacker.
