I mean, they're the in-house media for the league.  They're not going to say, "eh, beyond the top 3 players in the draft, you're not going to find anyone worthwhile.  Tune in!"

 

A few years ago Bruce Arena was making fun of the guys who dump all these hours into mock drafts, basically saying they put more work into that stuff than the teams do.

I get it... but they act like who ever is drafted is going to be a starter.

They should focus more on their potential. Use data from combine snd compare it to good players who went through draft

Same for every draft basically... Sites and networks do the same thing for the NFL where they compare every prospect to current NFL players.  Yet in that league, at least 1/3 of the first round are going to be nothing players.

Not very interested in the draft. Low pick + more interested in siging home grown defenders. Wonder what's happening with that?

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Agree, usually aroind mlk day we start to hear abt rumors. I feel like a lot of HG players are signed around that time period and many euro and south american players start to pay attention to MLS as an option

drafting CBs and outside backs is what Curtis will do as long as we have picks. minimal cost, and if they guy(s) stick, they'll either get minutes with RB2 or be in the gameday 18. essentially bilyeu and carroll's yr from last season.

Defenders that may sign (already signed) a HGP:
Andrew Lombard, Marcelo Borges, Mason Deeds and Noah Powder (depending on his France stop). Kevin O'Toole played well with the USL guys too.

Would love to have Eric Klenofsky drafted but silly with Robles, Meara and Diaz with the first team. Plus, he won't drop to #17.

What was/who is the last draft pick that became a DP from us? Has that ever happened? What about the league?

In my opinion, you draft best player available, regardless of position.

 

It's really tough to get guys who turn out to be MLS quality from the draft, so you can't limit yourself even more by drafting need.  Perfect world it's a right back or a CB, but I really don't care as long as the player turns out good.

Jozy, Bradley... Howard wasn't drafted

 

For the rest of the league... Fred Adu, Wondo, Beckerman (Fusion dispersal draft), Besler, Dempsey, Edu, Omar Gonzalez, Eddie Johnson, Kamara, Zusi... anyone else?

So these guys are mostly all old/older. Which either means quality in the draft has dropped or the good ones who were drafted haven't grown up enough yet. Were they "known" commodities at the time? All household names now, just curious as to whether or not their DP status comes as a surprise compared to their expectations at the time of the draft.

Draft players who do well are stuck with a low wage for atleast 3 seasons.

If they have good seasons they are either sold to europe like Ream, leave on a free transfer like perry kitchen or receive DP tag like Besler.
