The SuperDraft is actually only halfway over, and the Black-and-Red have one more pick

The 2017 MLS SuperDraft came and went last week, and yet we still have half of the remaining picks to go. While cutting the draft in half was wise - anyone that has attended probably knows the "joy" and "euphoria" that sets in sometime during the third hour - we're still left with an odd situation.

The Portland Timbers made their big splash early in the draft when they traded up to take Jeremy Ebobisse with the No. 4 pick. Now Ebobisse has some company in the Timbers' rookie class after Caleb Porter and company took UCLA center back Michael Amick with the No. 32 pick.

The Bruins' captain since his sophomore year and a regular contributor since he was a freshman, Amick played 73 games over the course of his four years with the Bruins.

Some people love it and some people hate it.

It is time for the 2017 MLS SuperDraft and the Portland Timbers hold the No. 10 and No. 32 picks in this year's college player give-away.

With SuperDraft rounds 1-3 in the books, we assess the Revs' top picks.

During the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, the Revolution front office looked beyond its glaring defensive needs and chose to bolster its attack, drafting forward Brian Wright (20th overall) and midfielder Napo Matsoso (31st).

Both picks offer intrigue, as Wright's senior season at Vermont ended in a bid for the MAC Hermann Trophy and Matsoso, a decorated player in his own right, assisted 20 career goals at Kentucky.
