I don't see the values of the draft either... not like Tim Ream will ever be an integral part of this team. Or Tony Tchani for that matter.
As an aside, the academy will begin to bear its fruit as soon as Agudelo sees his first league minutes. The trade of Kandji and the recent quotes from Backe indicate that he's on the cusp for league minutes.
Agudelo will be the first in what we all hope will become a golden pipeline of academy developed products plying their trade for their local soccer team.
Please don't give me a near heart attack next time
