2011 MLS Draft OpenThread

Hello from Baltimore. Here's hoping that this is the last time I ever have to drive to this city to cover my team.

I'm sitting here in the media room with UZ from Burgundy Wave, who traveled from Colorado to the draft despite his team having no picks in the first round. Well they pick 18th, so I'm pretty sure that's not the first round.

DC United picks third today (as of this writing) and is likely to add a forward to the team. Options likely to be available at No. 3 are Will Bruin, Omar Salgado, and Joao Plata. Will the team go for potential or experience? We'll find out in just about 30 minutes.

Or sooner. Rumors have indicated that the top overall pick may be in play if the Vancouver Whitecaps feel like giving it up. United has one pick in each of the first two rounds, but could certainly add more as they try to bring even more youth onto the roster.

I'll have live updates here and on SB Nation D.C., assuming the network connectivity here remains successful, which I'm not entirely confident about. For now though, use this thread to discuss who you want us to pick, and who we do pick.
