USFL Draft: Catch up on each pick live!

The USFL The draft has begun!

The 35-round inaugural draft is an exciting two-day event taking place Tuesday and Wednesday in Birmingham, Alabama, home of every NFL regular season game in the 2022 season.

The Michigan Panthers were #1 on the clock, and they started the show by picking former Michigan Wolverines quarterback Shea Patterson with the #1 overall pick.

Day 1 will continue by position, starting with quarterbacks in round 1, followed by edge attackers and defensive ends in rounds 2 through 4, offensive tackles in rounds 5 through 7, appearing in rounds 8 through 11 and back to center in round 12.

This is the full draft order, with information on each player when selected.

Round 1 (back quarter)

1. Michigan Panthers: Shea Patterson, Michigan

A former five-star recruit who starred in both Mississippi And Michigan on a career college floor that saw him pass for 8800 yards and 68 touchdowns, Patterson was the first QB off the plate in the first round of the USFL.

After two years in Michigan in which he finished ahead of both Tom Brady and former coach Jim Harpo on the school’s all-time passer list, the 6-foot-1, 212-pound Patterson signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and has since spent time in the CFL with the BC Lions and Montreal Alouettes. Patterson, the former high school baseball star, stuck to football despite being drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 39th round in 2018.

2. Tampa Bay bandits: Jordan Namo, Mississippi

After two flashy seasons at the Ole Miss where he passed for 5,600 yards and an impressive 30 touchdowns for only 12 interceptions, Ta’amu signed with the Houston Texans in 2019. He jumped to the now defunct XFL after a few months, and played like that for a good St. Louis Battlehawk He’s since earned it with the Kansas City NFL Chiefs, Detroit Lions, Washington Captains, and the Carolina Panthers.

3. Philadelphia stars: Brian Scott, Occidental College

Cost him “Aaron Rodgers of the Third Division,” Scott passed 9,073 yards and 77 touchdowns in just 33 games at Occidental College. Throwing in Pro Day at USC in 2017, the 6-1, 215-pound Scott shocked the scouts with an impressive 62-for-64 performance (including one drop), earning a spot with the CFL’s BC Lions.

Scott, 26, had later chances with the Los Angeles Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts between the two titles with the Edmonton Eskimos of the CFL and the New Jersey Generals in the Spring League, before being drafted Tuesday into the Premier League. First round from Philadelphia.

4. New Jersey generals: Ben Holmes, Tarleton State

The 5-10, 200-pound Holmes initially starred as a wide receiver in high school and college prep before landing at Tarlton State as a quarterback. He guided the Texans to their first Lone Star Conference Championship straight and left with a scintillating 23-2 career record as the starting quarterback. Holmes, 26, continued his playing career in the Indoor Football League, signing with six-time champion Arizona Rattlers before being selected for fourth place on Tuesday by the Generals.

5. Houston Gamblers: Clayton Thorson, northwest

Before being given a fifth-round pick by then-defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in 2019, Thorson threw 10,731 yards and 61 touchdowns with 27 more hits on the floor at Northwestern. His team finished 36-17 during their starting time in the highly competitive Big Ten. Thorson, 26, also spent time with the Cowboys and Giants before being picked up by gamblers for fifth on Tuesday.

6. Birmingham Stallion: Alex McGough, Florida International

McGough was a seventh-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2018, his first QB pick since 2012’s Russell Wilsonen. He also spent time in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans. The 6-3, 214-pounder, 26-year-old started all four years of his FII career and became the school’s all-time captain in touchdown passes (65) and yards pass (9091) with another 535 yards and 16 touchdown points.

7. Pittsburgh Mullers: Kyle Lolita, Richmond

Laolita was the Senior Bowl MVP in 2018, which led to his selection in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the New York Giants that year. The 6-3, 222-pound QB provides the exemplary size and arm talent to pique the interest of rival fans and scouts alike, having completed 63.5% of his nearly 1,200 career passes in Richmond for 10,465 yards and 73 touchdowns for 35 interceptions. Lolita also spent time in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

8. New Orleans Breakers: Kyle Slaughter, Northern Colorado

Slaughter initially signed with Miss Southern but moved to Northern Colorado after the Golden Eagles took him to the receiver. Northern Colorado also played Sport Sloter in other locations, but once he was QB, he passed for 2,656 yards and 29 touchdowns for only 10 interceptions. That landed him a job with the Denver Broncos in 2017, which he eventually cut despite dying for 413 yards in pre-season that year. Sloter, 28, spent time with the Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears and Las Vegas Raiders before The Breakers made him their top pick on Tuesday.
