The USFL keeps moving along despite the pending lawsuit set for March 16th. Today it was announced that the USFL Supplemental Draft is set for Thursday, March 10th at 7 PM ET. Just like the inaugural draft on February 22nd and 23rd. Picks will all be announced via social media.
“280 players have already been selected for the inaugural @USFL draft class … 80 more will join them on March 10th as the USFL Supplemental Draft begins at 7 PM ET. All 10 rounds will be revealed by the best social media team in sports. #USFLDraft“
From the USFL Draft Press Release.
“The USFL will also conduct a 10-round supplemental draft on March 10 to select 80 more players. This gives potential players more time to opt in with a signed contract. Teams will have two minutes between selections during the supplemental draft, and teams may select from any position group. At the conclusion of the supplemental draft, each team will have 45 players, for a League total of 360 players. Once the season begins on April 16, each team’s active roster will have 38 players plus a seven-man practice squad.”
We are still awaiting more details on the USFL combine set on March 19th -20th. NFL insider Adam Schefter first reported on it and Ben Fischer followed up. We don’t know if players will be placed on teams after the combine or give players one last look before the season starts.
USFL News Hub will have a full recap and team by team breakdown of the USFL supplemental draft.
