Final observations about today's Major League Soccer SuperDraft

by Ron A. Marchionna | January 13, 2017

Of the 44 picks in today's Major League Soccer SuperDraft, there were 4 goalkeepers, 10 forwards, 14 midfielders and 16 defenders selected. The Chicago Fire chose 3 players in the first two rounds: one midfielder, one goalkeeper and one forward. It is my understanding that most drafted players will not have an immediate impact upon the MLS team that selected them and will most likely spend time with a USL (Second Division) affiliate.
