Another pro spring league had its draft.

Maybe we, or everyone, all jumped the gun on last year’s spring football league since the AAF never finished the year and folded.

The XFL is back for a second go-around and held its draft and since we all love to keep track of former Mountain West players we will track where they were selected in the draft.

The draft was quite unique as instead of teams picking whoever they want, the XFL decided to have a position group be taken per round. So for example, one round is dedicated to the offensive line, the defensive front seven, secondary, and so on.

San Diego State led the way with seven players drafted and from the league, there were players taken from six of the 12 teams and the bulk of players drafted came from the offensive line.

Skill Position

Round 3, Pick 1: D.C. Defenders: Jhurell Pressley, RB, New Mexico

Round 3, Pick 3: New York Guardians: Tanner Gentry, WR, Wyoming

Round 7, Pick 1: D.C. Defenders: Donnel Pumphrey, RB, San Diego State

Offensive Line

Round 2, Pick 2: Houston Roughnecks: Terry Poole, OT, San Diego State

Round 3, Pick 1: Los Angeles Wildcats: Ryan Pope, OT, San Diego State

Round 6, Pick 8: Los Angeles Wildcats: Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State

Round 7, Pick 1: Los Angeles Wildcats: Ryan Cummings, OG, Wyoming

Round 9, Pick 1: Los Angeles Wildcats: Tyler Roemer, OT, San Diego State

Round 10, Pick 6: St. Louis BattleHawks: Dejon Allen, OG, Hawaii

Defensive Front Seven

Round 2, Pick 5: Los Angeles Wildcats: Eric Pinkins, LB, San Diego State

Round 7, Pick 1: Tampa Bay Vipers: Lucas Wacha, LB, Wyoming

Round 10, Pick 2. New York Guardians: Rykeem Yates, DE, Nevada

Round 10, Pick 5: Los Angeles Wildcats: Owen Roberts, DT, San Jose State

These former Mountain West athletes will get going with their teams fairly soon as the league is expected to start shortly after the Super Bowl.
