Mock Expansion Draft Sampler

The MLS Expansion Draft kicks off in about two hours, and the list of available players is more talent-laden than in any previous edition of the event.

Marquee names such as Juan Pablo Angel, Guillermo Barros Schelotto, and Jimmy Conrad are on the docket alongside lesser-known gems such as Dax McCarty, Robbie Russell, and Sanna Nyassi.

How will it all shake out? Here are three pundits’ predictions—click the names to see their mock drafts:

Ridge Mahoney, Soccer America

Matthew Doyle, MLS

There’s considerable variation among the three, but all agree that Dallas midfielder Dax McCarty will be gone after the first two picks.

Other hot commodities include Seattle striker and DP Blaise Nkufo, Houston winger Corey Ashe, Sounders midfielder Nathan Sturgis, and 21-year-old Dallas centerback Kyle Davies.

MLS will be streaming it live, starting at 1:45 p.m. EST.

We’re headed out on the road for Thanksgiving, but will post about the draft and other developments over the long weekend, provided the in-laws’ Commodore 64 and dial-up access are in working order.

Enjoy the holiday, everyone.
