Farmer started in 30 career games for the Huskers, including 11 his senior season (2018). He appeared in all 12 contests along the offensive line last fall. The only game he didn’t start was against Purdue, but he battled an illness throughout the week.
At 6-foot-4, 325 pounds, Farmer has a great chance to have a solid career at the professional level. He’ll get his start in the CFL, but he could easily work his way onto an NFL roster sometime in the future.
Farmer joined the team earlier in the week.
