2022 USFL Draft: Every Mountain West Football Player Selected On Day Two
A number of former Mountain West football stars look to find their way in the revived USFL this spring.
Lots of familiar faces in the mix.
After landing six selections on the first day of the USFL Draft, many more stars from the Mountain West’s past heard their names called in the second and final day of the new spring league’s dispersal process.
As on day one, the eight USFL teams selected players in a “snake draft” fashion, picking from different position pools in each round (wide receivers from rounds 13 to 17, safeties in round 18 and 19, and so on). Where the Michigan Panthers had four Mountain West players in their first twelve selections yesterday, many more USFL squads got in on the action this time around to build depth on their respective rosters (though the Panthers did select three more athletes from the conference, giving them seven in all).
Of note, the new Pittsburgh Maulers, led by veteran NFL running backs coach Kirby Wilson, crafted something of a San Jose State reunion in the Steel City. After selecting former Spartans quarterback Josh Love on day one, the Maulers picked three more SJSU players on day two.
Pittsburgh also selected former San Diego State linebacker Kyahva Tezino, giving San Diego State four selections altogether, bested only by San Jose State and its conference-high seven picks. Colorado State and New Mexico finished the two-day process with two draft picks while Fresno State, Hawaii, and Utah State had one apiece.
