2007 MLS Supplemental Draft

Just a quick summary of the supplemental draft here. Most of these guys won't even make the squad but watch for some pleasant surprises. Last year produced a few such as Dan Wasson (Rapids) and Vaughn (Chivas USA). And, if my memory serves me correctly Dasan Robinson (Chicago Fire) was a supp pick last year. Not only was he a great surprise but was in the running rookie of the year and was called in the US Mens National camp in the lead up to today's friendly in LA against Denmark. Link to List at
