The USFL has been a blessing to players such as Kyle Sloter of the New Orleans Breakers, who has bounced around six different NFL organizations and leads the league in passing. Before a season-ending ACL injury, the Philadelphia Stars quarterback Brian Scott seemed like one of the league’s most impressive signallers, but his replacement Cookus case is even more effective since he took the reins. One of the most exciting developmental quarterbacks in the USFL is Luis Perez of the New Jersey Generals, who found themselves in a rep-splitting timeshare situation with one of the most pleasant surprises yet, DeAndre Johnson of “Last Chance U” fame.

New Jersey Generals Compact Runner Darius Victor became the most polished defenseman due to his ability to pound the rock between tackles and make plays out of the backfield as a wide receiver.

Newly signed Bo Scarbrough joins Marable in the Stallions backfield and is coming off his first game of the season on limited duty, but will be one to watch in the second half of the season. After crossing over to the European Football League (ELF) last summer, the former Tennessee/Michigan State runner mother london had its ups and downs this spring as a point guard with the Pittsburgh Maulers.

USFL: Mid-Season Scouting Rankings – WR Big Board

Birmingham Stallions stand out at everything Victor Bolden Jr. has been a weapon in the passing game and as a returning man, expect to see him in an NFL training camp in August. The same could be said of its counterpart marlon williams, which became a gamebreaker for the Stallions. When you take into consideration the New Orleans Breakers point guard’s height, athleticism and vertical play jonathan adams, it would seem to define the prototype of the NFL. His Breakers teammate, former Ohio State speed burner Johnnie Dixon is back to his old tricks, burning defenders deep on a regular basis. A pair of former college teammates teamed up in the USFL, as former San Jose State players. Tre Walker and Bailey Gather joined forces for the Pittsburgh Maulers. Both players are in the top 10 in receiving yards despite being on the league’s worst offensive team. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Bandits used Jonathan Franklin III in a variety of roles, including Wildcat and Kavontae Turpin was also a fun gimmick player to watch as an all-around catcher for the New Jersey Generals.
