The Seattle Sounders have survived the Expansion Draft with their roster intact. It was a quick draft that featured primarily defensive players. Both teams were clearly looking to find value and versatility in their picks.

Many thought that Seattle would lose Damion Lowe, who had performed well while on loan at Minnesota United, but both teams looked elsewhere to fill out their backline. Oniel Fisher looked like another attractive option but the teams elected to target other versatile fullbacks.
This is just the beginning of an offseason that will be hard and fast but the Sounders still have complete control of their roster and the decision of who to keep and who to let go remains in the teams hands.
