XFL Draft Notes, Supplemental Draft In November

XFL Draft Notes, Supplemental Draft In November”

XFL president Jeffrey Pollack reveals features that will distinguish his league from the NFL.

The XFL announced Monday that the eight teams will each select 71 players during a two-day draft that will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday (Oct. 15-16).

According to ESPN, approximately 1,000 players opted into the XFL draft pool by accepting the commissioner's invitations and passing a background check. It follows a different structure from the NFL Draft fans are used to, including a "snake draft" order of picks alternating by round.

Before those picks are made, however, each team will be pre-assigned one quarterback. And then it will be a snake-style draft that is created to "maximize parity and equity between the teams" according to commissioner Oliver Luck.

Notable players available in the XFL Draft include former Oakland Raiders quarterback Connor Cook and former Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Weslye Saunders.

Other players with state ties included in the initial player pool are former Jones High and East Central quarterback David Cornwell, former Northwestern Oklahoma State offensive tackle Jonte Berry as well as a couple of former Tulsa Golden Hurricanes - wide receiver Keevan Lucas and running back Trey Watts.

The XFL has not yet disclosed how its players will be compensated.

According to Luck, there will be a supplemental draft at the end of November for players who were ineligible to be drafted in October, either because they were on National Football League rosters at the time or because they were a part of college programs. Its eight franchises are all owned by the league and are located in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Washington and Tampa Bay, Florida. Training camps will begin in January and the first games will be February 8, 2020.
