The Lions selected
Rourke in the second round of the 2020 CFL Draft, 15th overall.
BC made Rourke the first quarterback off the board in the 2020 Draft, and he should slot in ready to immediately compete with Mike Reilly
(wrist) for the starting role. Reilly, 35, stands to offer strong competition, but Rourke's history of production at the NCAA-level could make him hard to keep off the field. He completed 200 of 328 pass attempts with Ohio in 2019, resulting in 2,820 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions.
