Early Projected 2009 SuperDraft Order

I suppose it is never too early to start looking ahead to next January’s SuperDraft. I’ve started compiling a list of what should be the projected order in that draft. I will continue to update this list up until the official list is released by the league (probably a couple weeks before the draft knowing them).

Now this is all an extremely early projection. Most of it is based on trades and movement going on right now in the league. We’ve seen a lot of trades go down for players that involved draft picks in the 2009 draft. So expect this order to change a lot in the coming weeks and months. It will help once we know who makes the playoffs and more importantly who plays in the MLS Cup.

As always, if something is wrong or out of place please let me know below in the comments section and I will get it updated right away.
