A Brief Look Ahead at the 2014 MLS SuperDraft

By Adam Serrano

CARSON, Calif. – We’re only a week away from the 2014 MLS SuperDraft where the LA Galaxy currently hold two selections. 

The Galaxy have the 14th overall selection in the first round, but then they'll be in for a bit of a wait as they will not pick again until the fourth round with the 72nd pick. Next week, I and the rest of the LAGalaxy.com crew will be in Philadelphia providing coverage from the SuperDraft. 

Check out my primer below.

LIST OF COMBINE PARTICIPANTS

BRUCE ARENA ON LA GALAXY DRAFT NEEDS: “We’re drafting 14th so you never know what is going to be available. We do think that there is going to be a good player available but we just don’t know in terms of position. At this point in time, we’re going to draft the best players available. There are obviously a number of players that we have an interest in. So we’ll go down in the combine and watch them a little closer then when our turn comes, we’ll pick whomever is a good addition to our roster.”
