When people look back at the 2012 MLS Draft, they will surely look at it as the first draft that didn't feature a multitude of trades. What they might wind up really recalling of the draft, however, is the amount of solid MLS talent that was available.
There were no draft pick trades in this year's draft, but teams still came away with some good talent throughout the league after picking from one of the deeper draft classes in recent memory. No, there wasn't the star power or high upside talent of previous years, but there was definitely a strong collection of players who should go on to have solid MLS careers.
Give those stories a read and feel free to tell us what you thought of the draft. Happy with your team's picks? Disappointed with who they passed up?
