For the first time in 37 years, the United States Football League (USFL) held a draft on Tuesday night.
Failing to compete with the NFL on its first attempt, the original USFL closed up shop in 1986 after four seasons (1982-1985).
And while this 2022 version technically isn’t the same league, it features eight teams with eight of the original USFL team names.
Tonight and tomorrow, each team is tasked with filling 38-man active rosters and seven-man practice squads.
The first round was designated to selections at the quarterback position.
The draft will continue through tonight and into tomorrow with 35 total rounds. Each round will be designated to a specific position group.
The 2022 season is set to begin in April.
