Just a quick post here on the 2011 MLS SuperDraft. A few of you have been asking me to post the order of the draft for a few days now (sorry its taken this long!). The first round is pretty easy to figure out actually. After Vancouver and Portland select the order goes in reverse order of how teams finished the 2010 season. So D.C. is third and Colorado is last. 72 players will be selected in four rounds.

Below is the order of the first round (as of today):

1. Vancouver
2. Portland
3. D.C. United
4. Chivas USA
5. Philadelphia
6. New England
7. Houston
8. Vancouver (from Toronto)
9. Chicago
10. Kansas City
11. Seattle
12. Columbus
13. New York
14. Real Salt Lake
15. San Jose
16. Los Angeles
17. Dallas
18. Colorado

The second-forth rounds are similar except for trades that have taken place. Check out the Wikipedia page on the SuperDraft. It has a full listen of trades and what not for all the rounds. I’ve covered plenty of these trades but honestly I don’t have the time to write them all up for each round.

I’ve also been given word that the initial MLS Combine list should come out later this week. It won’t be the full list of players that will be there next month but it should give us a good indication of who all the league will be scouting here. Typically the league adds in the Generation adidas squad at the end as well as the guys still in the College Cup this weekend. Plus the list could get shorter as players decline the offer to go to the Combine.

    What day this week is the list expected to come out? And is the number of players increased with the addition of the two teams?

    I hear the list comes out Thursday 12/9.

    Drew: A friend of mine plays at a small D-II school. The odds of him making the mls combine are little. How does he get his name on a list to be drafted?
