We have heard quite a bit of complaints about the AAF football league, but let’s give them a lot of credit. According to our AAF and XFL expert Justin Berendzen, after four phases of the XFL Draft a total of 132 players were selected in the draft.
Guys like Luis Perez were assigned to a team, and many more were selected. This is impressive considering there are still 20 some in the NFL. So this league so far has given guys enough film to get 150 plus players another shot in professional football.
The AAF was not wrong, too bad it could not have kept running. It would have been sweet to see multiple leagues going at once.
