There are several other MLS mock drafts online by several other qualified soccer writers. But SB Nation has one advantage over those guys. We're just a collection of fans who are passionately dedicated to our teams. We'll be conducting a mock draft tomorrow night because we feel like the 18 of us collectively know our clubs' needs and likely drafting strategies better than any other single writer could.
Tune in at 9:00 PM tomorrow night to follow along live. Jeremiah Oshan will be running the show on the SB Nation Soccer mainpage, and he's even recruited Drew Epperly of WV Hooligan to provide some commentary/analysis/criticism/praise for each pick. We'll also have a story on the D.C. United selection here as soon as it happens.
As for United though, I have the honor of playing GM, and I still honestly haven't decided who to select with the No. 3 overall pick. And so I'd like to enlist your help.
We've already discussed Perry Kitchen and Darlington Nagbe here, but I imagine those will be the first two players selected. So vote below who you think I should pick for United with the third overall choice, and definitely tell me why in the comments section. And if you've got a sleeper that we might be able to select in the second round, those suggestions are welcome as well.
I can't say I'll definitely pick whoever is the leading vote-getter in this poll, but I will absolutely consider all opinions from United fans.
