There are a few athletic cbs in this draft that could play. Barlow and bauer's are the 2 main cbs that have skill. However, for rbny, I think you need the better athlete to play D. If rbny can nab Nabi Kibunguchy and/or aime mabika, 2 very athletic cbs, we should be good.

Mabika is big dude.  Doubt either of those guys fall to us at 13.

I mean, there's a David Egbo out there.  A forward from Akron.  Can't pass up the chance to have two Egbo's on the team.

Just came off the board.

Would have been a good pickup. Can finish.

Looks like we have our choice of a few different CBs who are available.  The Bauer kid from NH, Mabika (?) and Nabi (?).

Luther Archimede. Oddly enough, the Mock Draft had him going to us here.

Solid pick. Looking forward to see him score goals with Omar Sowe in the USL.

Description: upside, hard working, has physical tools for MLS, needs a couple USL years.

Sounds like a solid pick at number 13. Well done.

At this point I assume all draft picks will go to RB2 for a year and be cut within 11 months.

 

Best of luck to everyone we take but as someone who watches every RB 2 match i just think the skill gap gets bigger every year.
