GENERALS TRIVIA

The 1985 USFL Draft consisted of 12 rounds, a reduction from the 19-round draft of 1984 and only half the duration of the inaugural USFL draft in 1983, which lasted 24 rounds.
--
Unlike the 1983 and 1984 drafts, the 1985 USFL Draft was conducted in a single day.
--
The Generals were penalized their first round draft choice in 1984 as a penalty for signing RB Herschel Walker the year before.
--
Doug Flutie, the famed Boston College quarterback signed by the Generals, was chosen by the team in the USFL's territorial selection process.
