TDS releases its final editoin of the First Round mock draft below.
After trading away Laurent Ciman, the Impact can add to their defensive corps by drafting in the senior standout.
Minnesota can add another Right to Dream prospect by snapping up the speedster out of Michigan. The team has plenty of attacking options, but can add Atuahene to that mix as a spark off the bench.
The Lions dealt Tommy Redding to the Red Bulls and could use someone to partner with Jonathan Spector. Omsberg, who tested well and has the build to compete in MLS, comes off the board early here though as he could be one of the surprises of this draft pool.
A dynamic attacking presence, Mueller is a senior signee that should be able to impact the game early in 2018, which would be a welcome development for Montreal.
Boasting plenty of flair attacking players, Adams is a hard-nosed midfielder that would add a depth piece behind Scott Caldwell in the center of the park.
It wouldn't be surprising to see the Revolution deal one of their Top 10 picks. If they decide to hang onto this one, adding Blackmon isn’t a bad route to go. Primarily a right back, potentially able to play centrally, he’s another depth add.
While Musovski didn’t exactly light up the combine and could certainly slip down the draft, he’s someone RSL could consider as an out-and-out striker.
Anyone drafted by FC Dallas, even at this spot, faces a bit of an uphill battle for playing time – depending on their future roster moves. Thiaw’s the kind of active front-runner that could potentially supply goals that FCD could turn to.
While Twumasi has the most upside of any of the Generation adidas players, the lack of a clear position and a down combine could see him slide on draft day. The Quakes would welcome the electric winger into the fold with open arms.
Another central midfield option for Sporting KC is never a bad thing, and Krolicki has plenty of quality despite not excelling at the combine.
Considering the ambition Atlanta United has shown in the transfer market, the draft isn’t exactly critical as the team eyes to build to its 2018 roster. Stauffer’s a versatile outside back, a domestic player on the cheap, which would all be assets for them.
Bringing in a Generation adidas player at this point in the draft is never a bad decision, and while Opoku has some work to do, the Fire could end up with a gamble that pays off down the road.
It’s a bit lazy to assume that the Red Bulls would snap up White, though if he’s there at 16, it’s easy to imagine they would grab the goal-scorer and Red Bull PDL veteran.
Carl Robinson can’t turn down the chance to add another defensive-minded central midfielder to his group. Skundrich, if he can hang technically, has the mentality that most coaches would love.
While shaky moments at the combine could see Fiddes slip down the draft, he fits the Sporting KC ethos, is an athletic player, and could get minutes with Swope Park Rangers as he adjusts to the next level.
The No. 10 could thrive as midfield depth for Patrick Vieira. He could play centrally or out wide in the team’s 4-3-3.
A natural backup for Wil Trapp, Lema’s and the Crew would fit nicely together.
Last year’s draft pick for Seattle didn’t even make the MLS team. Can the tall striker from Crieghton make the cut as depth for the Sounders, getting reps with S2?
Outside backs that can cover a lot of ground will be hard to find at this point in the draft, and TFC is going to be on the hunt for cheap depth at that spot. Manley played in a back three at Duke, and his versatility would also be an asset, either as a right back or an undersized central defender.
