EXPRESS TRIVIA

--
The 1985 USFL Draft was conducted over one day - January 3, 1985.
--
The draft comprised 12 rounds, equal to the number conducted by the NFL at the time.
--
The Express received two compensatory picks, as they had previously made trades with teams that were folded or merged following the 1984 season.
--
Being operated by the league and on a shoestring budget, virtually none of those players drafted by the Express in 1985 were signed to contracts.

The Los Angeles Express selections in the 1985 USFL College Draft, held on January 3, 1985.  No record exists with respect to the disposition of the Express' selection in rounds 4 or 8.
