34 Players Selected in Final Two Rounds of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft
 
Draftees vie for roster spots as MLS preseason opens this weekend
 
NEW YORK (Tuesday, January 19, 2016) – The final two rounds of the MLS SuperDraft were held today, with Major League Soccer’s 20 clubs drafting a total of 34 players. The selected players will now have the opportunity impress their clubs during preseason training camps in an effort to secure a spot on a team’s final roster.
 
MLS clubs are not restricted on the number of players attending preseason training camps, but each team must be roster and salary budget compliant by February 26.
 
The first two rounds of the MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas took place in Baltimore last week as all 20 MLS clubs selected from a pool of 250 college standouts, Generation adidas players and youth internationals. With the first overall pick of the draft, the Chicago Fire selected Generation adidas signee Jack Harrison from Wake Forest and then subsequently traded him to New York City FC for the fourth round pick – the first time in Major League Soccer history that the No. 1 pick was selected then traded on draft day. The Fire then used the No. 4 spot to select Brandon Vincent of Stanford Univ., who is currently in the U.S. national team training camp.
