The USFL is making its triumphant return to the spring football scene in 2022. The league last played and operated in 1985 before going belly-up after the 1986 USFL Draft.
Now, the fledgling league will try to make it again and do what the AAF (2019) and XFL (2020) couldn’t do. It will hope to become a spring-league football staple.
The USFL is set to begin its 10-game, 12-week schedule in April, but first the teams had to set their rosters. They did so during the 2022 USFL Draft, which took place over two days in February, the 22nd and 23rd.

The 2022 USFL Draft operated similarly to the 2019 XFL Draft. Teams picked from the same position pool in each round, and the draft used a modified snake format to ensure each team received the top choice in two of the position-specific rounds. Below is a breakdown of each phase of the draft:
In total, 280 players were selected during the inaugural USFL Draft. They will fill 35 of each team’s 38 roster spots, so teams will each have to add 10 players after the draft. The USFL is planning to host a supplemental draft in March in the event that other players join the league’s talent pool.
Who is among the USFL’s player pool? It had been kept a secret, but we know more about the participants now that they’re official draft picks.
