Hey, back at it again. Draftnick Ric here at the All Access newsletter. Of course, bringing the names you need to know first. Since 2002, that's what we do. And I can remember, uh, the original XFL. So it's so exciting to see them, uh, sustaining and, and thriving and, uh, gliding through the regular season.

We are almost on the brink of the playoff season in the XFL. I've, I've tried to soak in every single game. I love it. I can't get enough of it, and I hope it keeps on going and. I know NFL teams are keeping a close eye on some of these prospects, okay? And what we've done here is break down the top 10 NFL prospects for each XFL team, okay?

And there's a lot of talent in the X F L. I've been thoroughly impressed with the talent level, quite frankly, and I'm just gonna highlight some guys here. You know, we've got the top 10 for each X Ffl team, but how about AJ McCarran from the St. Louis Battle Hawks. I mean, I give this guy a lot of. I'll be honest, I wasn't sure where I stood.

Didn't know if I had exuberant confidence in AJ McCarran, but. You gotta give this guy some respect. He left 4 million on the table, walked away from his N F L contract to come start and play in the X F L to prove that he can be a starting signal caller. And, hey, AJ McCarran has done no wrong. That first game, there was a little bit of a rollercoaster, but since the end man, he's been steering the ship, he's got the St.

Louis Battle hawks and, and straight contention. He's been the best quarterback I think in the XFL and I think N F L. Need to start paying attention. AJ McCarran. How about that? Buckle up. Uh, we also saw Phillip Lindsay make his X F L debut and he is now with the Seattle Dragons. Uh, Phillip Lindsay, of course, outta Colorado.

Uh, undrafted free agent that he had a thousand yards rushing. Trying to find a home in the NFL and you know, I'll tell you what, he's got an opportunity now here, to prove himself and teams that might be thinking about taking running back in the upcoming NFL Direct. They might wanna take a look at Philip Lindsay and how about Abram Smith?

This guy's a stud. DC defenders, the former bailer linebacker, converted, running back. He runs like a linebacker. I mean, you can't bring this man down. He is a bully. And I'll tell you what, I, I loved Abram Smith coming out. I, slapped the day three grade on him. Quite frankly, I'm not sure why he's not on an NFL roster.

And quite frankly, I'm not sure if there's any NFL decision making, uh, out. Need of an NFL running? Like what? What? What's the hesitation? What are you waiting for, bro? Abram Smith is a stard. Okay. I love me some. Abram Smith just like I love me some Delante Scott man. San Antonio bras. We had him out at the NFLPA Collegian Bowl a couple years ago coming outta SMU.

Very raw, right? A big lump of clay that just needed to be molded. But he's athletic. He's bending. He's twitched. He can dip, he can bend. Ooh baby. Dante Scott, man. He is getting his work in at the uh, XFL. And I think if you're looking for a developmental pass, rusher, delante. The San Antonio Braas over there with Hines Ward is your guy, but hey, we've got it all broken down.

Top 10 N F L prospects for each X F L team. I'm sure the N F L will be combing through and I expect to see a flurry of, uh, X F L signings after the season, off season mini camp, uh, N F L training camp. I would not be surprised to see, uh, at least 50 players. In in N F L training camps from the XFL.

That's how much talent is out there. Hey, I'm Rick Cella. We've been bringing you the talent over at the N F NFL draft since 2002. It's what we do, of course, the official N F L draft content provider for Sports Illustrated. You can follow us at N F L Draft Bible and if you're watching this video, then you'll probably subscribe to the All Access newsletter.
