With the final pick in this draft, the Galaxy take Greg Cochrane, a left-sided player out of the University of Louisville. That's it for our live draft, but stay tuned to Goal.com for much more coverage of all the events from today.
Seattle selects Dylan Remick at #35. He's a defender out of Brown. New England then takes the draft's second goalkeeper, Luis Soffner, a national championship winner out of Indiana. The Dynamo then take Jimmy Nealis, a left back from Georgetown whom many thought would go earlier.
Earthquakes select University of San Diego midfielder Dan Delgado at #33, the Timbers then select Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, a center back from Washington.
With the 30th pick, Chicago selects Yazid Atouba Emane, a midfielder from Cameroon. Then Philadelphia takes Stephen Okai out of the University of Mobile at 31. Montreal then takes the draft's first GK, Brad Stuver out of Cleveland State.
Finally, RSL takes Devon Sandoval, a striker from the University of New Mexico. He had a strong college career and a rough combine. Could still fill a role in MLS
Columbus takes Denver defender Drew Beckie at 28, then the Union take a timeout, trade their pick to Real Salt Lake, which then takes ANOTHER timeout. The crowd is getting restless
At 27, Montreal takes Paolo DelPiccolo from Louisville, who is currently on trial with Entracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga. If that trial doesn't go through, that could be a great pick up for them.
The Rapids take Korey Kindle at #25, a speedy outside back from CSU-Bakersfield. The Union take Don Anding, a forward/midfielder from Northeastern at 26
We've had a few picks in the last few minutes: At 22, New York takes Ian Christianson, a defensive midfielder from Georgetown, at 23, New England takes Luke Spencer from Xavier, then the Galaxy take Kofi Opare, a defender from Michigan at #24
The Revolution select Donnie Smith at 21, a speedy left winger from UNC Charlotte
FC Dallas selects Ryan Hollingshead out of UCLA with the 20th pick. Interesting. His status is unknown due to a possible religious mission, but he could be a good pick up.
Word from our Avi Creditor is that D.C. United fielded calls from two west coast teams for its 17th pick during its time out, but did not recieve enough to justify a trade. That's directly from team GM Dave Kasper. We're about ready for the second round to begin.
With the final pick of the first round, the Galaxy take Charlie Rugg, a forward from Boston College.
With the 18th pick, Montreal takes Fernando Monge from UCLA. Bit of a surprise as Taylor Twellman tells us: "I've got nothing." Guess he didn't expect him this early either. Word is he is a midfielder who doesn't have a real position.
D.C. United takes University of Maryland left back Taylor Kemp at #17 after taking a five minute timeout. A local product who is generally considered the best left back available. Good pick for DCU, who needed depth at outside back.
Toronto FC finally takes its second pick, and selects Emery Welshman from Oregon State. A forward and more importantly, another Canadian. Lots to like about TFC's draft today
With the 15th pick, the San Jose Earthquakes select Tommy Muller, a center back from Georgetown. Good depth for them now that they're going to be in the CONCACAF Champions League this season
Sporting KC takes Mikey Lopez, the last Generation Adidas player available at #14. He may not quite be an attacking midfielder and not quite a defensive midfielder either. That might have seen his stock slip just a bit, as most mock drafts had him in the top 10.
Sporting Kansas City uses its time on the clock to unveil its jersey sponsor, Ivy Funds. Colorado and San Jose are now the only remaining teams with a kit sponsor.
And if Sporting KC picks Lopez here, that'd a second major move with them on the clock. What a fit that would be for both the player and the team.
Houston takes Jason Johnson from VCU at #13. A Generation Adidas forward with good size and speed who saw his stock drop just a bit with a rough combine.
