The XFL draft began Tuesday and will conclude Wednesday with eight teams filling out their 71-man rosters from a pool of more than 1,000 players.

In that pool are nine former Huskers hoping to continue their professional football careers. The draft will be conducted in five phases (skill positions, offensive line, defensive front seven, defensive backfield and an open phase for remaining players and specialists). The first four phases are 10 rounds each.

Below we'll keep track of which former Nebraska players were selected:

» Wide receiver De'Mornay Pierson-El, St. Louis Battlehawks (1st phase, 3rd round): Recorded 100 receptions for 1,309 yards and 11 touchdowns during his Husker career and was an All-America punt returner in 2014. He spent time with the Oakland Raiders during the 2019 preseason.
