How is each Big Ten team represented in the new USFL?

The United States Football League has resurrected and completed its inaugural draft on Tuesday and Wednesday. Only time will tell how much success the USFL will have this time around, but I for one am extremely excited to see so many young men get another opportunity to chase their dreams.

Despite the draft’s funky positional format, I had a blast watching and seeing some memorable names come across my phone (the draft was not televised). We have talked at length about the former Ohio State Buckeyes joining the league, but I wanted to break down each player from each Big Ten team that was drafted as well.
