The MLS SuperDraft is upon us! The bad news is the Union traded away their first round spot (11th) to Chicago on August 3rd so we can pretend that pick from the Fire would be ours I guess? Anyway, below are the selections from the first round with separate articles for rounds two through four. Notable picks this round are the first two picks which belong to expansion sides Minnesota and Atlanta.
8.) Atlanta United: Julian Gressel (Midfielder, Providence)
9.) Columbus Crew SC: Niko Hansen (Forward, New Mexico)
12.) D.C. United: Chris Odoi-Atsam (Defender, Maryland College Park)
16.) New York City FC(From Seattle): Kwame Awuah (Midfielder, UConn)
That only took two hours! We’ll have the second round for you sometime in November!
