Be sure to check out the full rundown of details on this year's prospect countdown before diving into the next round of players below.

40. Christopher Mueller – Midfielder/Forward – Orlando City SC

DOB: 8/29/1996 | HT: 5-9 | WT: 169

The No. 6 overall pick in this year’s draft, Mueller enters his rookie season with his hands full when it comes to playing time. Justin Meram, Dom Dwyer and Stefano Pinho are all in the Orlando City pecking order up front. But with reports streaming in about how well Mueller’s adapted during preseason (sure, it’s only preseason), scoring goals in three games, he’s going to give head coach Jason Kreis something to think about. Versatility should be an asset for Mueller, as long as he puts in the work and shows that he can put in the defensive work, he could find a way onto the field. All accounts are that he will find a way at some point, and by the end of the season, Mueller could find himself in the Rookie of the Year conversation. What makes the four-year Wisconsin product even more interesting is that he enters this season at just 21, a bit younger on the age spectrum for a draftee.
