SuperDraft live thread

Here are the picks so far

01 - Toronto FC - Maurice Edu - M - U of Maryland

02 - Crew - Bakary Soumare - D - U of Virgina
He was one of the reasons his side got to the semis in the College Cup. He is a big man with some great raw talent.

03 - Wizards - Michael Harrington - D - North Carolina
Harrington is quick and makes smart plays. KC needed some defensive help and it looks like they have got some.

04 - Real Salt Lake - Chris Seitz - GK - U of Maryland, U-20 Nat team
Real get the best goalkeeper in college with this pick. At 6'4", Seitz will be a beast between the posts, but he can also get down fast for low balls. He has a big future ahead of him with the US national side as long as Real develops him right.

05 - New England (from LA) - Wells Thompson - M - U of Virgina
He can run at defenders and should fit the spot the Dempsey has left open

06 - Rapids (from NY) - Nico Colaluca - M - U of Virginia
He is a very creative player

07 - Chivas USA - John Cunliffe - F - Fort Lewis College
He has power up top. I'm surprised he didn't go a little earlier.

08 - Fire - Jerson Monteiro - F - U of Alabama
Another strong forward, but will need some time to develope.

09 - FC Dallas - Anthony Wallace - D/M - South Florida, U-20 Nat team
Wallace has been amazing with the U-20s, but he is going to need some training before he makes the huge impact that he is bound to make on the league. He is a Generation Adidas player so this is a very smart add by FCD.

10 - Toronto (from LA, from COL) - Andrew Boyens - D - New Mexico
This is a big deal for Mo and Toronto. Boyens has great talent and skill and will be ready to get into the game from day 1.

11 - United - Bryan Arguez - D/M - West Kendall, U-20
Another great standout on the U-20 team. He has wonderful ball control.

12 - Revolution - Amaechi Igwe - D - Santa Clara, U-20
The U-20s keep adding up. Igwe is listed as a defender but played forward in college. He can play just about anywhere.

13 - Dynamo - John Michael Hayden - M - Indiana University
Very interesting pick. Would have thought they would have gone with a defender instead of a more attacking mid.

Thus ends Round 1 and my live coverage of it all.
