EXPRESS TRIVIA

--
While the 1984 USFL Draft consisted of fewer rounds than the 1983 edition (19 as opposed to 24), the league's 18 teams selected more players than had the charter 12 franchises the year before. 
--
The league's six expansion teams were awarded additional selections in many odd-numbered rounds.
--
For the second consecutive year, the Express used their first round draft choice to gain rights to an outstanding college quarterback, this time Steve Young of Brigham Young University.  
--
Unlike Dan Marino in 1983 however, Young signed with the Express thanks to new owner J. William Oldenburg's offer of the richest contract in pro football history to that time.
--
In the end the Express would sign every single draft choice the team made in 1984, a feat accomplished by no other USFL team in any of its three seasons of existence.
