New, 37 comments

The next crop of prospects enter the league.

The 2018 MLS SuperDraft is upon us. Each of the league’s 23 teams will take turns picking players for their team to hopefully develop into the stars of tomorrow. Today the first two rounds will be held with the following two taking place via teleconference on January 21.

Atlanta United have three selections in these first two rounds. Can they find a hidden gem like they did with Julian Gressel in 2017? Will any of the draft picks even have a chance at first-team action or will this year be all about bolstering the USL team? There are many questions to be answered on this intriguing day.

The draft officially begins at 11:00 a.m. ET with Los Angeles FC, the league’s newest expansion side, being put on the clock. Atlanta’s first pick comes at No. 14 overall in the opening round then they have successive picks at No. 36 and No. 37 in Round two.

Above is a live stream of the draft. Head down to the comments and chat about the day’s happenings.
