SHOWBOATS TRIVIA

--
While the 1984 USFL Draft was a flurry of activity for the Showboats, selecting 37 players over 19 rounds, the 1985 Draft was the polar opposite.
--
Having dealt away many of their picks the previous year, in 1985 the Showboats drafted only 6 players over the draft's 12 rounds, with no selection from Round 4 to 9.
--
Having added significant talent as a result of the USFL Dispersal Draft, however, the dearth of college draft picks didn't hurt the 'Boats much if at all.
