THE THIRD ANNUAL UNITED STATES FOOTBALL LEAGUE PLAYER SELECTION MEETING was the big, formal name for the 1985 USFL Draft.  Unlike its 1983 and 1984 incarnations, the 1985 USFL Draft was a small affair:  12 rounds and a total of 175 selections.  Following the contraction of the league from 18 to 14 teams for 1985, those teams which had made trades with now-disbanded teams involving draft choices were awarded compensatory selections.  The draft itself was held on January 3, 1985.
