Since the XFL has completed their run of six player showcases draft invites continue to go out to players. Reportedly the league is also sending draft invites out to many former players from the 2020 season. The XFL draft pool is being built, however the list will likely ebb and flow all the way up to this fall’s draft.
In this podcast Mark Nelson speaks to two guests, both part of the XFL draft pool. First you will hear from quarterback Jordan Kitna, just out of college and hungry for a pro-football opportunity. Kitna attended the recent Arlington Texas showcase, and hopes his grit and determination showed through on one of the hottest Sundays in July. I should mention that Kitna’s name might sound familiar as he is the oldest son of former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna.
The second guest is Linebacker Brooklyn Hardiman, who is fresh off attending an XFL showcase in Tempe, Arizona. After a diverse college career, in 2021 Hardiman graduated from Colorado Mesa University where he played his senior year with the Mavericks. In 10 games he had 16 tackles, 28 assists, 1 sack.
This episode is called “Perseverance.” It features two young football players who are some of the best of what they do, and both are seeking a pro-football playing opportunity.
