Pittsburgh Maulers Roster after 2022 USFL Draft



Pittsburgh Maulers USFL

The Pittsburgh Maulers have their first offseason roster, following the 2022 USFL Draft last week.

The Maulers made 34 selections in the inaugural draft of the league, which is based on but unrelated to the pervious USFL from the early 1980s.

All eight teams will be playing their games in the 2022 season in Birmingham, Alabama, with the playoffs and championship played in Canton, Ohio. There are no plans at this time for the Maulers to play games in Pittsburgh.
