Professional careerEdit

CFL DraftEdit

After a strong outing at the CFL Evaluation Camp, Eppele moved up six spots to become the fifth ranked player in the Canadian Football League’s Amateur Scouting Bureau rankings for players eligible in the 2010 CFL Draft.[2] On the day prior to the draft, the Toronto Argonauts traded the number one overall draft pick to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, along with the eighth overall pick, for punter Jamie Boreham and the second and fourth overall picks in the 2010 draft.[3] Rather than drafting one outstanding and high ranked player, the Argonauts elected to trade in order to be able to draft two very highly ranked players; Joe Eppele with the second overall pick and Cory Greenwood with the third overall pick (acquired from BC).[4]

Toronto ArgonautsEdit

On May 18, 2010, it was announced that Eppele had signed a contract through the 2012 CFL season with the Toronto Argonauts.[5]
