TEAMS IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE came out of the 1982 college football season excited at the prospect of picking up the veritable bumper crop of talent that was going to be available in their April 1983 draft.  Dan Marino and John Elway, Tim Spencer and Roger Craig, Reggie Collier and Ken O'Brien, Irv Eatman and Bruce Matthews... players who would join NFL rosters and surely propel the league to new heights as the 1980's wore on.  And then... the USFL came along, skimming some of the cream off that crop - and serving notice to anyone who listened that the league wasn't going to settle for second rate talent.

The inaugural USFL draft consisted of a whopping 24 rounds, covering 288 total selections, and was held over two days (January 3-4, 1983).
