2015 MLS SuperDraft: Cascadia Edition Mock Draft


I won’t act like I know a bunch about the MLS SuperDraft. Plenty of sites have put together their own mock drafts and I thought I’d pass along what they have put together.

I also felt that I could give my thoughts on the players they feel will be selected by the three teams in Cascadia-Seattle Sounders, Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps. Please keep in mind that the Sounders will not have a pick in the first round of the SuperDraft as part of the Stefan Frei trade that took place last offseason.

Here is the draft that SB Nation put together for the Sounders:

Seems that Catic would be a good selection and good get some valuable time with S2 if he is unable to break through on the first team.

Can’t really deny the fact that the Sounders need a goalkeeper as they currently only have one on the roster, Frei. They will also need one for S2 as well. This could be a great pick if he can get past his injury.

Here is MLS’ mock draft for the Timbers:

As stated above, the Timbers know him well. Until he gets his feet under him in MLS, he could be a good addition coming off the bench. We all know how Head Coach Caleb Porter likes to pass the ball. This might be a sure thing if he is still on the board.

Nate Sulat of mlssoccer has them taking someone else:

It never hurts to have depth for your back line. Also, Okwuonu could learn from veterans like Nats Borchers and Liam Ridgewell

Last but not least, here is MLS’ mock draft for the Whitecaps. All three experts picked three different players:

It never hurts to have a guy that can pair up top with Erik Hurtado, but I seriously doubt Williams will still be available at pick 13. Every team needs midfield depth and anytime you can snag a former homegrown player from another team, do it.

Well there you have it. The experts have made their decisions on who will be drafted and where they will go.

What do you think? If the draft goes as stated, will this fill your club’s needs? Let us know in the comments.
