Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

To put it bluntly, there isn't a ton of consensus.

It's been almost a month since MLS last held a draft, so it is high time for another one. The MLS SuperDraft, or the draft to end all drafts, is Friday at 8 a.m. The Sounders have the 22nd and 45th picks in the draft with rounds three and four happening on Sunday.

A "best player available" strategy made the Badgers assist machine a no-brainer

In a pre-Superdraft tradition around these parts, we join the other MLS blogs on SB Nation to conduct a mock draft. Every year, we've pretended to be in charge of D.C. United for a moment, and every year we've tried our best to mimic what Dave Kasper, Ben Olsen, and the rest of United's staff would do on draft day provided that they were not allowed to trade their picks.

SB Nation's MLS blogs got together for a 2016 SuperMockDraft.

Sunday, all of the MLS blogs at SB Nation got together and held a mock draft ahead of the MLS SuperDraft to be held later this week. The rules were pretty simple no trades and this draft only lasts for two rounds. As the Houston Dynamo don't have a first rounds draft pick (they traded it to the Philadelphia Union) we were left with a single second round pick.

The 2013 MLS Draft is now less than a week away, and while the MLS Combine could do a lot to impact the ranking of some players, MLS teams have a pretty good sense of which players they like and which positions they think they can address at the draft.

Plenty could, and will change in the eyes of scouts over the course of the next five days at the Combine, but if you were wondering how the MLS Draft would play out without the Combine, we will offer you a glimpse of what that might look like.

We all knew that trading picks was a possibility this week, especially with the New England Revolution holding a commodity like the fourth pick. A high draft pick is always an attractive bargaining chip. Really, though, if anyone would have been willing to put money down that the Revs would not only deal their first-round pick, but deal it to Toronto for the number one pick in the draft, surely most Revs fans would have called them crazy.

Many pundits nailed this in their mock draft, but probably not for the reason they thought at the time.

D.C. United is firmly in the "take the best available player" camp when it comes to drafting college players. The thought process is pretty straightforward: Having too many good players at a given position is a "problem," not an actual problem. If United ends up with too many good players at a position, there's almost always going to be another MLS team in need of a guy.

Although many see the MLS draft particularly as a very hit or miss affair, the Fire have always done a great job of drafting players that end up being major contributors to the team.

Carlos Bocanegra (2000), Damani Ralph (2003), Logan Pause (2003), Chris Rolfe (2005), Sega (2005), Bakary Soumare (2007), Patrick Nyarko (2008), Sean Johnson (2010), Jalil Anibaba (2011), and Austin Berry (2012) is a pretty star studded lineup to have as a draft history.
