More state players appear on XFL’s second list of draft-eligible players

More state players appear on XFL’s second list of draft-eligible players”

Players at skill positions such as running back and wide receiver will be picked first, followed by offensive lineman, defensive "front seven" positions such as linemen and linebackers, defensive secondary and then all remaining players. Luck told ESPN there will be a supplemental draft in November for those who weren't eligible to be drafted next week. Tuesday's list included offensive linemen Leon Brown from Alabama and Darius James from Auburn.

There will be 1,000 players in the draft pool, with the league saying in a release that it would begin releasing the names Monday and that all names would be released by Friday. We have a break down of some of the notable players from group #1.

The forthcoming revival of the XFL will hold its inaugural player draft October 15-16, with selections to be announced on digital and social media.

It will open with the XFL assigning a quarterback to each of its eight teams. Individual teams will select 10 players from each of the first four draft phases, following by 31 more in the final open phase.

None of the five players has appeared in an National Football League regular-season game.

A plethora of players have already declared for the draft and based on this format, it's certainly going to be chaotic.

Lee played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canada Football League in 2016. Cook also started his college career at Alabama.

The XFL plans to play a 10-week regular season set to kick off on February 8.

The XFL teams are the Dallas Renegades, D.C. Defenders, Houston Roughnecks, Los Angeles Wildcats, New York Guardians, Seattle Dragons, St. Louis BattleHawks and Tampa Bay Vipers.
