The inaugural USFL Draft was held on January 4-5, 1983.
The team's order of selection was determined by lottery, with teams alternating order between rounds (the L.A. Express, who picked first in the first round, chose last in the second, then first in the third, and so on).
The Breakers traded their first round choice to the Chicago Blitz, which used it to select WR Trumaine Johnson from Grambling.
The Los Angeles Express used the first overall selection to pick quarterback Dan Marino from the University of Pittsburgh.  Marino would ultimately sign with the NFL's Miami Dolphins, but while he was negotiating with the Express made several appearances at team functions and events.
