Take Your Supplements

Updated with quotes from Chris Henderson.

The MLS Supplemental Draft, which is really just more of the SuperDraft as far as I can tell, kicks off at 11am Pacific today. We'll be documenting the developments here. No video for these Mr Irrelevants. Keep in mind that Fucito was taken in the 4th (which would now be the first round of the Supplemental) so it's possible to find players here. But anyone who gets picked in these rounds will be a long shot to impress the coaches enough to make an already stuffed Sounders roster.

Update 1: In the 1st Round Sounders select GK Josh Ford from UConn. One of the top keepers in the SuperDraft. Dave actually took him in the SBN mock. Sounders just got real deep at keeper with 5 good ones (counting Herman in the Academy).

Here's what Sounders Technical Director Chris Henderson had to say in a press release: "Josh Ford is a very athletic, quick keeper who comes up with big saves when you need them. He made some good reflex saves at both our combine and the MLS Combine, plus we had seen him a couple times during the season."

Update 2: In the 2nd Round the Sounders select Corey Attaway from UC-Irvine. MLS lists him as a Defender, though this college bio says Midfielder/Forward, so I guess that covers everything. ProPlayerPipeline grades him as a solid D.

Henderson: "Corey's a good, solid right back that we saw during the year. He's good on the ball, he had a solid combine in Las Vegas and because of (assistant coach and scout) Kurt Schmid's past involvement at UC Irvine we have a very good sense of his ability."

Update 3: In the 3rd Round the Sounders select local product Sean Morris from Seattle U.

Henderson: "Being local, we had a number of opportunities to see Sean Morris, a homegrown player from Seattle U. For him to get a chance with us is great."
