Another Draft Selection for GSU's Bilukidi

Less than a week after becoming the first Georgia State player to be drafted by the National Football League, Christo Bilukidi had his name called in another professional draft.

Hailing from Ottawa, Ontario, Bilukidi was selected by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the third round (No. 21 overall) of the CFL Canadian Draft.

Last Saturday, the 6-5, 290-pound defensive lineman was drafted by Oakland Raiders in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.

Bilukidi was a two-year starter and the Panthers' top defensive lineman in their first two seasons. Playing primarily defensive tackle but also lining up at defensive end, he had 10 career sacks and 16 tackles for loss.

As a senior in 2011, he led GSU with five sacks and nine tackles for loss, along with 38 tackles, a pass breakup, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble. In 2010, he had 51 tackles, five sacks, seven tackles for loss and two forced fumbles.

Bilukidi played two seasons at Eastern Arizona JC before transferring to Georgia State prior to the Panthers' inaugural season of 2010.

He was born in Angola  and also lived in France and Brazil before Canada, where he played just one year of high school football.
