Following the conclusion of the XFL Draft at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada, XFL Senior Vice President of Player Personnel Doug Whaley issued the following statement.:

Congratulations to all the players selected in the inaugural XFL Draft. Together they will serve as the backbone of our League and be the center of the dynamic football our fans will experience when teams take the field in February.

For our teams, this week represents the first step in building their rosters and another step closer to kickoff.

Over the next two months, the League will hold a supplemental draft and claiming period for players who were not eligible for this week’s draft, including players currently under contract with other professional football leagues and graduates of the NFL Alumni Academy.

With 442 players selected over the last two days, and 528 spots to fill in training camp, there are still opportunities for players looking to take the field for the XFL in 2023.
