XCFL JETS360 “The 2019 Draft”

Hello XCFL & Jets Fans,

Well season 16 in the books. Now we move to the next one, but first lets recap a bit. It all began on 10/10/ just before the 8 o’clock hour. The Jets made the first of what would turn out to be many moves. Here is the list of guys who was released prior to the Free Agency Day.

Kevin Minter 73 MLB Released 2018-10-10 19:57:11

Much was expected with some of the contracts and age, but some fans were upset, but knew it was time especially for long time Jet Bilal Powell. Powell was the longest Jet until 10/10/18. So the next day the XCFL FA pool opens. Funny story the Jets pick up a former known Jet! Was it to fill the hearts of the fans? We know how Ferreira Sr feels about his hometown team & these fans!

Ryan Groy 70 C Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38
Aaron Lynch 77 RE Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38
Jordan Mills 72 RT Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38
Eddie Goldman 79 DT Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38
Sheldon Richardson 84 DT Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38
Kony Ealy 78 LE Signed 2018-10-11 8:07:38

Jets make a splash in FA. They go out and get former Jet Sheldon Richardson DT 84. A much needed position. Didn’t stop there either. They also signed Eddie Goldman DT 79. And THEN the go get 2 DE Kony Ealy LE 78, Aaron Lynch RE 77. They finish up with some offensive players in Ryan Groy C 70 & Jordan Mills RT 72. Following this big day Sr. tweeted this


So they listed all their picks for the draft. Then in a shocking trade the Jets make a deal with the Cowboys. Now IF anyone knows Ferreira Sr. there are a few things…. He hates the Patriots & the Cowboys!!! Also hates to trade. LoL However he makes a deal to send his 2nd Round 2019 pick & 1st Round 2020 to Dallas for Zack Martin RG 97 & Taco Charleston RE 80

Taco Charlton 80 RE
Zack Martin 97 RG

So the Jets make that happen. I personally love the action the Jets took leading up until the draft last night. They kept dangling that 1st Round #8 overall out there, but the trade sharks had all made the playoffs. So Sr. & his staff keep the pick. They had a few good looks at the #8 spot. IMO they nailed it with their pick last night. Gareef McBride MLB 81. Ferreira Sr said –“I have never had that coverage LB in the XCFL. Its always been blitz blitz blitz.” last night on the live draft show.
