After the first two weeks of the XFL season, it’s pretty clear who the NFL will be eyeballing to sign once the XFL season is over. Several offensive linemen have performed very well, but as of right now it’s too soon to say who’s playing consistent enough to warrant making the top of a list.
The quarterback play has been shotty at best, and it’s pretty obvious there are only four quality starters in the league right now. Matt McGloin could still make a case for himself but he needs to put together a better performance going forward.
#1) QB Cardale Jones
Right now Jones is arguably the best quarterback in the league right now and is the clear cut MVP front runner heading into week three.
#2) P.J. Walker
P.J. Walker is right behind Jones and barely ahead of Ta’amu in terms of production. He’s a dual-threat and could possibly be a starter in the NFL.
#3) Jordan Ta’amu
Despite turning the ball over twice in week two, Ta’amu has shown a high rate of efficiency in the passing game. He’s completing 77.5% of his passes, with four passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.
#4) Nelson Spruce
The leading wideout for the XFL is Nelson Spruce who continues to be a deep ball threat and show his solid hands despite the coverage. A sizeable target and a guy who should be in the NFL to start the 2020 season.
#5) Bunmi Rotimi
The best defensive end right now in the XFL is Bunmi Rotimi. He’s able to get depth, make it hard on the quarterbacks and has shown to be consistent so far through two weeks.
#6) Marcelis Branch
The best safety so far has been Marcelis Branch, who has shown tremendous playmaking abilities all over the field. He’s not just a good tackler but has shown to be able to get to the quarterback from the secondary.
#7) Cameron Artis-Payne
He might be the best running back in the XFL right now. After not playing much in week one, Artis-Payne exploded in week two.
#8) Steven Johnson
Steven Johnson may not be the most dynamic playmaker in the XFL but he’s able to tackle just about anyone. His physical play could be just what an NFL team needs to shore up the middle.
#9) Dexter McCoil
Dexter McCoil is the most accomplished secondary player in the XFL. He was a two-time All-Star in the CFL and is a mammoth player in the secondary.
#10) Nick Holley
The extremely versatile Nick Holley is a multi-purpose player who can amass yards from any position on the field. He’s skilled and super athletic; if he can stay healthy he’ll be guaranteed an NFL spot in the fall.
