Who will Dallas protect this year? (Getty Images)

With the expansion draft being next week I have to pull in some two-a-days for my expansion draft lists. Earlier today we looked at DC United’s roster and who could be protected or not not this afternoon I want to turn our attention to FC Dallas.

Being in Dallas and around the club made this a little easier to do than most clubs. Not to mention Dallas has a ridiculous amount of Generation adidas player on their roster that will be exempt from this draft so it narrows things down rather easily.

Protected Available Exempt
Jair Benitez Ray Burse Eric Avila
Marvin Chavez Daniel Hernandez Bruno Guarda
Jeff Cunningham Steve Purdy Josh Lambo
Kyle Davies Pablo Ricchetti Peri Marosevic
David Ferreira Andre Rocha Brek Shea
Atiba Harris Daniel Torres Anthony Wallace
Ugo Ihemelu Dave van den Bergh
George John Blake Wagner
Dax McCarty
Heath Pearce
Dario Sala

Ricchetti is as good as gone so there is no reason to protect him. What could change with this club is if Shea or Avila are graduated somehow from the GA program. But more than likely none of Dallas’ GA players will be graduated this year. Out of the rest of the protected list the only iffy ones could be Harris or Sala. But I wouldn’t protect anyone over them right now. I know some may say to protect  Burse over Sala but I kind of think Burse could be on his way out anyways. Just a hunch.

You may as about van den Burgh but the biggest reason why I left him off the protected list is because I would be willing to bet he would retire before going to Philly. Buzz Carrick got me thinking this based on what he wrote here.

See anyone I missed here? Let’s hear it.
