The inaugural 2022 USFL Draft from Birmingham, Alabama is in the books, with Day 2 concluding Wednesday afternoon. 

Day 1 covered Rounds 1-12, with quarterbacks coming off the board with each of the first eight picks in Round 1. Former Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson was selected first overall by the Michigan Panthers.

Day 1 also had edge rushers and defensive ends in Rounds 2-4, offensive tackles in Rounds 5-7, cornerbacks in Rounds 8-11 and quarterbacks again in Round 12. 

Day 2 followed a similar format to Day 1, with teams selecting a player from a specific position group each round. The positional order for Day 2 was as follows: wide receivers in Rounds 13-17, safeties in Rounds 18-19, center in Round 20, inside linebacker in Round 21, and guards in Rounds 22-23. Teams will have 90 seconds to make their pick each round.

Teams had just one minute to make selections in Rounds 23-35, which consisted of defensive tackles and nose tackles in Rounds 24-26, running backs and fullbacks in Rounds 27-28, outside linebackers in Rounds 29-31, kickers in Round 32, punters in Round 33, tight ends and H-backs in Round 34, and long-snappers in Round 35.
