We took Elliott fucking Fry? I'm not saying he's bad but Oakman AND Ealy were still on the board. Our pass rush isn't very good.
I would have never taken a kicker first in the open draft. You are at a 40 man roster before the open draft starts. You still need a kicker, punter and long snapper but that still leaves several key depth positions open. I would have addressed that first than get a kicker. Even though Fry is pretty good. Knowing the BattleHawks luck. The Pats might sign him. They already lost two drafted players to the NFL.
The Pats did lose Gostkowski and signed Mike Nugent.
The Pats are not exactly enamored with Nugent. He's been shaky since they signed him. They also worked out Fry recently and several kickers in today's XFL draft pool like Greg Joseph who got drafted.

What two drafted guys are that?
It's actually 3 total players. BattleHawks draft picks BYU DL Corbin Kaufusi signed onto the Jets practice squad. His brother Bronson is also on there. Center Tyler Gaulthier signed on the Patriots practice squad. TE Wes Saxton signed on to the Redskins PS.

St. Louis is getting some heat for their draft and the quarterbacks they have. Jordan Ta'amu is a very good prospect though. It's actually a sign that they are drafting well. If NFL teams sign the players they drafted. The BattleHawks still own the rights to those players if they become free agents again.

So is there a way to actually view the selections as they are happening? I know there's no live stream anymore but just a frequently refreshing tracker of some kind would be great if it's available.

So if there is a blank, that team passes?

I assume that tracker is being built of teams declaring their picks, either by their own stream, social media, etc.

Tampa Bay has certainly made selections in the open section (per their Twitter, both Nikita Whitlock and Jacques Patrick), but I'm assuming they're not on there because the tweets don't mention what round they were taken in.

If there is a blank it's because they don't know what the pick was. The list is probably being cobbled together from social media graphics. All the power to them for trying.

Ive checked QB's social media and I don't see anyone whose made any announcements. At worst Id expect 9 more to go.
