The league has announced its final list of invitees with now more than 70 hopefuls at the Combine. Added to the list are five non-college internationals, included John Rooney. Also joining the Combine is former Seattle Sounders Vegas Combine invitee Ryan Kinne of Monmouth. Ten other players have been added as well.

The Combine matches will be available at www.MLSsoccer.com streaming, though some of the biggest prospects will be in the U-20 camp. Evidence that MLS is getting to be a bigger deal a consensus top 2 pick will be skipping the workouts and matches though still available in the draft - Darlington Nagbe.

As I continue to prepare for tomorrow's SBN Mock Draft (6PM Pacific) I'm poring over as much data as I can find.

Zac MacMath (at the US U-20 camp) and Anthony Ampaipitakwong have both been tabbed as likely picks for Seattle in previous Mocks highlighted here. But as Jeremiah has said I expect the Sounders to take the best player available, rather than by need.

With the SBN Mock going into the 2nd round and Seattle having three picks there things should be fun for me trying to find the late gambles.

Who would you like to see Seattle pick in the first and second rounds?
