3 round draft next week.
Natural picks: 13, 40, 67
Seagrist trade: 81

Least number of players that have ties to our academy in recent years. A few eligible seniors from our academy were not on the MLS eligible list, but we didn't have many graduating that I expected to pursue a pro career. Wondering if we will get some HGP and NYRBII deals for some of the guys that do have some talent that were not on the eligible list.

RBNY U23 players (none from the academy): Mike DeShields
Allen Gavilanes
CC Uche
Sondre Norheim

Gavilanes impressed me a bit (similar to Brian White). Uche is highly rated, but struggled a bit at times with the U23s. Only saw DeShields twice, although I know he has ties to New Englands USL1 team. Norheim was on the roster a few years back.

Will we continue our awful trend of spending allocation money to move up for wasted picks?

 

Will his be Hamlett's last stand?

Are we going to take another LB and immediately put them in the starting XI?

Would rather trade all the picks for allocation $$ and go academy heavy with the 2s.

How does pick 81 work in a 3 round draft?

27 teams. Normally #81 would be the last pick, however teams that traded for 4th round picks before they cut to 3 rounds are getting picks after 81 (5 of those).

They used to be fun to attend. SGs trying to out-heackle SGs. Everything. 

 

Good times.

MLS has completely butchered the format and rules around the draft. Its wild how many college players are opting out. Given how few of them end up with MLS deals, it makes sense.

Option A: Express interest in the SuperDraft so that a club nominates you to be on the eligible list (yes, this is mostly how the list of eligible players gets built), get drafted, play somewhere you may not want to be, play preseason with the team that drafted you only for them to not sign you (vast majority the past couple years). This causes you to not have time to impress another MLS team or USL team that expressed interest initially. While after the first game of the season you can request to be released, if all other teams pass, especially since that would require a contract without having you at their preseason, you land on the College Protected List. Finally you get a USL deal (since MLS is now out of the question for another year due to the College Protected List) and finally start getting paid. You do well and impress an MLS team. The drafting MLS team owns your rights and requires the other interested team to give them something in return.

Option B: Forego the draft, spend preseason with any MLS team that expressed interest in you and where you want to be (league has a loose Discovery List for this situation). It doesn't work out so you come off the Discovery List and essentially a free agent again. You played well in a preseason game against another team (hopefully not Odd Greenland during the La Manga Cup). The other MLS team picks you up since they don't need to give anything up.

Option B sounds like the smarter move.

Very depressing reading the homepage about worst draft signings.

 

Do we have a Top 10 (or 5, 10 is probably too much to ask) draft signings for some nostalgia?
