With their final two picks of the 2015 MLS Superdraft the Seattle Sounders selected another goalkeeper, Charlie Lyon of Marquette, and forward Andy Bevin from West Virginia.

Bevin, though he played for West Virginia in college, is actually from New Zealand, and as such he would take up an international slot. As a senior for the Mountaineers, he scored 13 goals and tallied 8 assists. He's 22, turning 23 in May, and is 5'9", which is a magical height for Sounders strikers.

Charlie Lyon, a 6'2" Goalkeeper from Marquette, originally from Illinois, not New Zealand, was a Biomedical Science major with a 3.887 GPA, which means he's probably smarter than you. He set a school record with an 804:58 minute shutout streak in this past season. The Captain for the Eagles set another school record with a 0.83 GAA and was second all time with a 0.811 Save Percentage.

All three of these players are likely bound for S2.
