MLS SuperDraft filled with solid picks, risky moves and trade transparency

Abu Danladi tells Taylor Twellman he wanted Minnesota United to take him with the No. 1 pick because of Adrian Heath.

When asked if he has a winter jacket, Dunladi said, "I've got it all ready; I'm really excited."

Danladi was among three players thought to be in the running for the No. 1 selection,...

The 10 MLS SuperDraft prospects that kicked the hype machine into overdrive

Taylor Twellman joins the FC show to discuss the ongoing MLS Combine, and how young players can impress potential clubs.

CARSON, Calif. -- MLS is now in its 20s, yet the relevance of the MLS SuperDraft continues to be a matter of debate. Yes, the advent of homegrown signings from a team's academy has robbed the draft of depth. The increase in foreign slots over the league's history, as well as the emphasis on those players acquiring green cards, has lessened the draft's impact as well.

But those predicting the draft's demise overlook one overarching fact: Teams love acquiring players for free. If said players have...

How many players, past or present, do you know that would feel confident in trying to kick the sun?

Of course, the only appropriate answer here is Andrea Pirlo.

When it comes to the Italian maestro, all the world's a set piece and we are merely dead balls, waiting to be curled around a wall. In this case, the ball is the sun and the ocean is his barrier. We're guessing this went in off the underside...
