The Canadian Football League has drafted former Brahma Nick Arbuckle. In 2014, Arbuckle graduated and moved on to Georgia State University.
Arbuckle was the Brahmas’ quarterback from 2012-14. He racked up 6,626 passing yards and 73 touchdowns. He also had 29 interceptions and 27 sacks.
He led the Pacific Conference in 2013 with 259.3 yards per game. His final season as a Brahma ended with a nearly 60 percent passing rate, 2,852 yards and 26 touchdowns.
At GSU, he had 51 touchdowns and 7,651 yards from 2014-15. In 2015, he had 471 passing yards in a single game against Texas State University. Arbuckle was an unsigned free agent who attended the Pittsburgh Steelers tryouts during the summer.
It ended with no contract being offered. At 6 feet and 225 pounds, Arbuckle was considered to be deficient in arm strength, athleticism, and height, even though last season at GSU he had 28 touchdowns, 4,368 passing yards and a .631 passing percentage.
The Calgary Stampeders, a team within the CFL, extended a contract for three years to Arbuckle. Prior to leaving GSU, Arbuckle served as volunteer assistant coach to head coach Trent Miles and the offensive staff for the 2016 season.
