USFL Supplemental Draft Quiz

With the recent ESPN documentary chronicling the rise and fall of the now legendary United States Football League I did a little research into how the players from that league were distributed to NFL teams.

Some, like Jim Kelly above, were drafted by NFL teams in the regular NFL draft. Their rights were owned by the NFL team who originally drafted them. Others were drafted in 1984 during the NFL supplemental draft. This was despite the fact the USFL played on through 1985. The thought being the NFL didn't want their teams causing bidding wars amongst themselves once the USFL folded.

With that in mind today's slide-show is a quiz. Can you name the top 5 picks in that 1984 supplemental draft? Amongst them were three Hall-of-Famers, a Heisman Trophy winner, and a Harvard-trained doctor. Good luck!
