The XFL announced throughout this week the players included in the draft pool. The draft will take place Oct. 15-16 with games scheduled to begin in February.

The XFL will have teams in Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Seattle, St. Louis, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C. Each team will have a 71-man roster.

Below are the former Huskers who appear in the draft pool.
