There are 10 new names to go on the backs of those green Sounders FC jerseys, as the team seemed to do pretty well today, with a nice mix of young players with experience.

Here’s the TNT report on the draft.

Here’s the take from general manager Adrian Hanauer:

"We feel like we got a great mix of players. We got an experienced veteran who has been there in the trenches and played lots of MLS games in Peter Vagenas. We got mid-tier experienced guys in Parke, Jaqua and Khano Smith. We’re very excited about the young players we were able to select."

"We weighted the draft a little more defensively, rather than the attack. We feel very good about our expansion draft players as they complement our existing four players. Together, they comprise a very solid core."

Here’s the full release from today’s MLS expansion draft .
