4 SuperDraft Picks, likely for our USL team.
First: #22
Second: None (#46 traded for Marcus Epps)
Third: #70
Fourth: #78 (from TFC for rights to Caleb Patterson-Sewell),
#84 (from LAFC for rights to Danilo Da Silva).
We traded our natural pick (#94) to Orlando for Amro Tarek.

Who's the best player we've ever drafted? Seems like nothing good ever comes from this unless my memory sucks.

Jozy? Bradley?

Strictly best for us: Petke? Richards? Ream? Parke?

The last regular worth noting was Chris Duvall. Ryan Meara before that.

Jeff Parke my favorite. Last pick in the draft, eventually switches his jersey number to reflect it. To this day, argument can be made for club all time Best XI.

Miles Joseph, Brian Kelly, Billy Walsh (99 season only), Mike Petke, Petter Villegas, John Wolyniec, Rodrigo Faria, Brad Davis, 2003 had Ricardo Clark, Mike Magee and Eddie Gaven, Michael Bradley (not much for us but worth noting), Seth Stammler, Marvell Wynne, Jozy Altidore, Dane Richards, Jeremy Hall (stretch), Tim Ream and Tony Tchani are others that were valuable.

With the number of MLS teams + academies that give young players a shot in USL early + piss poor college scouting to evaluate professional talent, this draft is crapshoot at best.

Last year we ended up signing 2 second round picks in Lema and Stauffer to the USL team after they didn't make it out of their drafting teams' training camps. Our natural 2nd rounder (Niko de Vera) and Stauffer already out of our USL picture.

Someone on Twitter posted how few drafted players the past 3 years ever got/are still getting decent minutes or even with the same team. It's sad.

MLS draft is becoming more like the nhl/MLB draft. The mai. Purpose is to fill out the reserve/b Teams

You could look it up. Here are a few:
http://www.metrofana...t.jsp?YEAR=1998
http://www.metrofana...t.jsp?YEAR=1999
http://www.metrofana...t.jsp?YEAR=2003
http://www.metrofana...t.jsp?YEAR=2006
http://www.metrofana...t.jsp?YEAR=2010

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

And yet, there are still quality contributors. For instance, Julian Gressel, who was a major part of Atlanta's run, was the 7th overall pick 2 years ago. He is an outlier, of course, but quality is still out there...

 

Especially for our USL team.

Top 10 picks you've got a decent shot at someone who can contribute year one. Anything past that is just about a total crapshoot.

Parker was 13th. Long was 36th.

 

It's a complete crapshoot, so take all your bullets and fire as many as possible.
