Hall, McCray Picked on Day One of XFL Draft

ORLANDO –  The inaugural XFL Draft began on Tuesday with the selection of skill players, offensive linemen and defensive front seven. Two former Knights, Rannell Hall and Jordan McCray, were picked by the Tampa Bay Vipers.
Drafting in phases, Hall went in the seventh round of the skill position player phase. Hall, a receiver and return man for the Knights from 2011-14, is in the UCF record books for every kick return category, including ranking third all-time with over 2,000 career kick return yards.
McCray went in the first round of the offensive line phase. Most recently having played with the Chicago Bears, the former Knight has also spent time in the Arena League and with the Orlando Apollo's of the AAF.
Hall and McCray will play for head coach and general manager Marc Trestman, who has been a head coach in the CFL and NFL, most recently with the Chicago Bears.
The inaugural XFL Draft continues on Wednesday with defensive backs and the open phase, which is 30 rounds of players at any position. Former Knights Rashard Causey, Aaron Evans, Kyle Gibson, Tony Guerad, Justin Holman, Storm Johnson, Terrance Plummer, and Matthew Wright are among the names in the draft pool for Wednesday.
