The XFL draft is now complete. The league evaluated nearly 6,000 players at XFL showcases, NFL training camps, tryouts, and via film. The top prospects from these evaluations were invited to enter the XFL Draft pool of 1,700 players who were vying for 528 spots in training camp and 400 active player roster spots.
The Draft event led off with 15 quarterbacks being assigned to 8 XFL teams, followed by two days of draft selections done by the teams.
According the league, there were 442 non-quarterback players selected in this draft, with 285 coming with NFL experience, 273 XFL player selections came from the past three NFL draft classes (171 from the 2022 NFL Draft, 33 were eligible for the 2021 NFL Draft, and 69 were eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft). The league’s draft picks also included 69 players who will be returning to the XFL from 2020.
