Kahlil McKenzie drafted by St. Louis

The United Football League held its super dispersal draft.

Former Vol Kahlil McKenzie was drafted in the seventh-round as an offensive lineman by the St. Louis Battlehawks.

He played for the Vols from 2015-17.

He was a sixth-round selection (No. 198 overall) in the 2018 NFL draft by Kansas City. McKenzie also played for Cincinnati (2020) and Baltimore (2021-22) in the NFL.

He played for the XFL’s Los Angeles Wildcats (2020) and Vegas Vipers (2022).

Players selected in the super dispersal draft will have an opportunity to be amongst 75 roster spots allotted to each team for training camp, which begins Feb. 24 in Arlington, Texas.

The 2024 season is the first for the UFL. The UFL formed after the United States Football League and XFL merged in Nov. 2023.

UFL’s 2024 season will kick off on March 30 between Birmingham (2023 USFL champion) and Arlington (2023 XFL champion). The season will feature eight teams, 40 regular-season games and three postseason contests.

ABC, ESPN, Fox and FS1 are UFL’s television partners.
