2009 SuperDraft Projected Order

  • 2009 MLS SuperDraft, Allocation, Trades

Its been a long while since I updated this projected order, mainly because I knew there would be a slew of trades that would come down to shake up this order. And let’s be honest, we’ve seen plenty of deals this year that included draft picks.

With Monday’s trade deadline looming, I figured we could bring this back up again and updated as needed like we did last year before the 2008 Draft. I did it on a weekly basis in the off-season then and I may continue that this year, we will have to wait and see what kind of changes will come down between now and then though.

But for now let’s dive back into this discussion. Now it may be still early to talk about this but I think we have a pretty clear understanding of somethings. The order I’ve decided to go with is determined as follows: #1-7 go to non-playoff teams and expansion club, #8-11 go to quarterfinalists, #12-13 go to semifinalists, and #14-15 go to the runner up and winner of MLS Cup 2008. Within each group, teams are ranked based on regular season record. Ties are broken the same way as the regular standings. Also, for this I will continue to notion that the higher seed will win their playoff series.

If anything is out of order or a trade appears to be wrong, please pipe in a comment below and I will get it fixed as soon as I can.

Also check back later on for a list of players to watch out for this year in NCAA that could be drafted in this draft, as well as a look into possible Generation adidas players for next year as well.
