USFL 2022: Michigan Panthers Supplemental Draft Recap

The Michigan Panthers along with seven other USFL teams were able to fill a couple more spots on their roster Thursday. March 10th’s historic supplemental draft allowed teams to pick any position rounds from the available player pool. Teams were allowed Ten picks and had two minutes per pick. They were also not allowed to skip a selection like they were in the original inaugural draft. The players listed below are now the newest members of the Michigan Panthers

Round 1, Pick 8: Warren Saba, DB, East Carolina

Round 2, Pick 1: Maea Teuhema, OG, LSU/SE Louisiana

The well-traveled Teuhema provides depth and experience at the position. Between a recent stint in the IFL, with the Frisco Fighters, and time with the AAF’s San Antonio Commanders, the Panthers gain another asset for the interior of their offensive line.

Round 3, Pick 4: Marcus Baugh, TE, Ohio State

Marcus Baugh is one of a hand full of players who has only AAF experience and did not play in the XFL. After several bouncing around NFL teams, this AAF alumni joins a crowded Tight End room and may find himself as the odd man out.

Round 4, Pick 5: Sean Williams, FS/OLB, Navy

Round 5, Pick 3: Cameron Scarlett, RB, Stanford

Round 6, Pick 6: Connor Davis, TE, Stony Brook

Conor Davis is an alumnus of both the AAF (Iron) and XFL (Battlehawks) playing in four professional football games. As a small school prospect who had a recent stint with the Browns, Davis last shot at pro football maybe with the USFL. First, he’ll have to beat out Marcus Baugh for the final spot in the Michigan Panthers Tight End Room.

Round 7, Pick 7: Joseph Putu, CB, Florida

Round 8, Pick 2: Devin Ross, WR/RET, Colorado

Round 9, Pick 3: Tejan Koroma, OC/OG, BYU

The former Houston Roughneck started two games in the XFL during their 2020 season. After a successful stint in The Spring League, the versatile Offensive Linemen joins the Panthers and will most likely compete with Teuhema for playing time and maybe even a spot on the roster.

Round 10, Pick 6: Shane Griffin, LS, West Chester

The Panthers now have a roster consisting for Forty-Five players (No Kicker). With the season Thirty-Seven days away, they’ll have to mold a roster that will need to be at Thirty-Eight Players with Ten on the practice squad. With so much unknown for the future of the league, fans of the USFL can at least find solace that they now have a group of players to root for time being.
