1984 NFL Supplemental Draft of USFL and CFL Players

In an attempt to head off a bidding war in its own ranks for USFL players, the National Football League held a draft of USFL and Canadian Football League players on June 5, 1984. NFL teams chose 84 players during the three-round selection meeting, 75 of them from the USFL and just eight from the CFL. The other player, Duan Hanks, was a free agent who had last participated in the Philadelphia Stars camp before being cut. The first 27 players selected all played in the USFL. NFL clubs tabbed 20 members of the Los Angeles Express including top pick Steve Young by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The only USFL team without a player selected was the San Antonio Gunslingers. Many of the other big name USFL players were ineligible for the draft because their rights were already owned by NFL clubs. NFL teams refused to pick USFL players from the same city; odd when you consider that neither the L. A. Rams or Raiders selected a member of the Express.
