2012 SB Nation MLS Mock SuperDraft

12

SB Nation's MLS blogs got together today to run our own draft for funsies. The results probably won't reflect real life, but it does give us at least some angle on what teams are prioritizing and where we might see certain players fall. Drafting for B&RU, I took senior midfielder Nick DeLeon out of Louisville. A versatile attacking midfielder/forward, DeLeon's soccer IQ is well above the average draft pick's, and his skill as a passer and creator is high enough that he can contribute immediately. With United's needs in mind, DeLeon was #3 on my list behind the consensus top two (Akron forward Darren Mattocks and Duke's Andrew Wenger). I would consider us extremely fortunate to get DeLeon in the real draft, but a rather similar player (Creighton attacker Ethan Finley) dropped all the way to #22. Either of them, along with a handful of others, would make United's draft a successful one. The real draft is Thursday, January 12th at 12pm EST and will be shown on ESPN2 as well as ESPN3.com.
