MLS Supplemental Draft set for today

MLS Logo

If the 2011 MLS Draft wasn't enough of an event for you to get your off-season fix, then today's MLS Supplemental Draft should offer an appetizer for those who love seeing their teams add new faces.

There is some talent left that went undrafted last week, particularly non-American college players who teams passed on because they would take up international player slots. MLS teams are more likely to take a chance on those undrafted foreign players today, which should give the Supplemental Draft a foreign feel.

Here are some top players still available to be drafted today:

Jeff Attinella, GK, South Florida

Daniel Keat, M, Dartmouth

J.C. Banks, M, Wisconsin-Green Bay

Greg King, D, UConn

Michael Boxall, D, UCSB

Ernesto Carranza, M, Sacramento State

Steven Beattie, M, Northern Kentucky

Dustin McCarty, M, North Carlina

Curtis Ushedo, D, UAB

Sverre Wegge-Gundhus, D, St. John's

We will post the Supplemental Draft results as soon as they become available.

    Wait a minute…Greg King and Curtis Ushedo did not go in the 1st round of the Super Draft?!?!?

  2. tbkh says:

    What’s the point of this? Why not just have a 6 round Superdraft?

  3. jonk says:

    I’m just speculating here, but I imagine it gives teams some more time to assess their needs and research some lesser known guys.

  4. Tim says:

    Garth Lagerway said that basically these rounds are a crapshoot anyways, so why not do it over the phone for a couple of hours a few days later rather than sitting in a room together all day.

  5. Justin O says:

    What?! No Mock Supplemental Draft?! This site sucks!

  6. Discnutt says:

    Do teams have to make a pick or is this like the re-entry draft where teams can pass if they don’t want any players?

  7. jonk says:

    Does anyone know what the deal is with developmental rosters for 2011? With expanded rosters and the return of the reserve league are developmental signings that don’t count against a team’s cap coming back as well?

  8. jonk says:

    From what I understand a team can pass when their pick comes up, but then they are done for the draft.

  9. nam says:

    I hope you don’t ask Simon Borg for financial wisdom.

  10. gigi says:

    hmmm attinella and ushedo are intriguing options for the supplemental draft, dont forget braga either he led the nation in assists, even if he is 24 he can supply decent backup.

  11. Ben says:

    How bout Tadeu Terra from St. Johns?

  12. Gaucholic says:

    Suprised Boxall is still available… then again the combine hurt his draft rankings….

  13. Chris Whyte says:

    He’s not anymore. He’s a Whitecap.

  14. WileyJ says:

    Ya, I’ll +1 that for sure :) funny.

  15. JohnC says:

    I think some teams try to get too crazy with these supplemental picks rather than just picking the best, most obvious talent available. What is the School Craft University and why is that player not on their roster?

  16. jonk says:

    What? If I was a GM, the SuperDraft is where I might pick the best, most obvious talent available. After the top group of players, it’s all about finding guys that will fit your system or that caught a coach’s eye.
    And as for Paul Ogunyemi, I have no idea why he’s not on SchoolCraft College’s roster, but he also played for Timbers U-23 last year.

    So Chivas got two of these “top players” Carranza and Ushedo, despite not even having a pick in the first round.
    Didn’t Simon Borg say Curtis Ushedo would be drafted in the first round of the superdraft? Close but not quite, he went in the final round of the supplemental draft.
