SALT LAKE CITY – Six players with locals ties have a opportunity to play at the next level after being selected in the USFL Supplemental Draft.

The USFL held their 10-round Supplemental Draft on Thursday evening that added players to their rosters. During the USFL Draft last month, four locals were selected.

Of the six locals that were taken, one was from the Utah football program, one from BYU, two from Southern Utah, one from Weber State and one that attended high school in the Beehive State.

The USFL will start with eight teams this season, including the Michigan Panthers, Birmingham Stallions, Houston Gamblers, Tampa Bay Bandits, Pittsburgh Maulers, New Jersey Generals, Philadelphia Stars and New Orleans Breakers.

Hunter Thedford, TE, Pittsburgh Maulers

Thedford was taken in the eighth round with the 62nd overall pick by the Pittsburgh Maulers. He is the only local to go to the Maulers. Thedford spent four seasons with SMU from 2015-18 before transferring to Utah for the 2019 season. With the Utes, Thedford played in three games, hauling in two catches for 12 yards.

Tejan Koroma, OL, Michigan Panthers

Koroma spent his college career at BYU and went undrafted in 2018. He spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs. Then he was taken in the 2020 XFL Supplemental Draft. The XFL suspended operations on April 10, 2020.

Former Utah State defensive end Adewale Adeoye was taken by the Panthers in the second round.

Brock Miller, P, New Jersey Generals

After a successful career at Southern Utah, Brock Miller spent time with the Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers. He was taken in the fifth round with the 34th overall pick by the New Jersey Generals.

Marquez Tucker, OL, Birmingham Stallions

The Birmingham Stallions selected former Southern Utah standout offensive lineman Marquez Tucker in the ninth round with the 65th overall pick. Coming out of college, Tucker spent time with the Chicago Bears.

Tucker joins former Utah Utes defensive back Brian Allen, who was taken by the Stallions in the eighth round of the USFL Draft.

Adam Rodriguez, DE/FB, Philadelphia Stars

Former Weber State defensive end Adam Rodriguez is going to Philadelphia after being taken in the second round, 11th overall pick by the Stars.

Rodriguez joins former Desert Hills star Gabriel Sewell Jr., who was taken by the Stars in the seventh round of the Supplemental Draft.

Gabriel Sewell Jr., LB, Philadelphia Stars

From St. George, Utah to the University of Nevada and now the Philadelphia Stars. Sewell is joining the Stars after being selected in the seventh round with the 53rd overall pick.

Sewell joins former Weber State standout Adam Rodriguez on the Stars, who was taken in the second round of the Supplemental Draft.
