Best XFL running backs available for NFL free agency


The five games create an incredibly limited sample size, but there were some standout performances that will likely get some XFL players into NFL offseason workout programs when they eventually start.


As a receiver, he caught all 11 of his targets and scored a touchdown, averaging eight-yards after the catch, which was the best of any running back with 10 or more receptions.


His ability to play well in a pass-first offense should be able to get him some looks in training camp for a league that continues to move toward passing as their default position.


Both have the size and agility to be useful NFL practice squadders, but neither can boast strong receiving or pass blocking chops.


At 29, teams aren’t looking for a project, but he did lead the XFL in yards per carry with 5.1 and led the league in avoided tackles after a catch.


Donnel Pumphrey didn’t get enough work to truly showcase himself, but at 25, with some NFL experience already, he showed well enough to keep the dream alive.
