With the MLS SuperDraft coming up Thursday,’s Simon Borg, Jason Saghini and Travis Clark offered up their mock draft last week.

All three predicted that the Sounders would go with a forward with the No. 15 pick in the draft: Borg and Clark naming Casey Townsend of Maryland and Saghini naming Sam Garza, a Generation Adidas player from UC Santa Barbara.

We’ll have some information of our own as draft day draws nearer. But for now, here’s their mock draft. And here’s a link to’s overview draft/combine coverage.

    I’m looking for the next Lionel Messi

    I’m not a fan of the next “insert name of player you’ve heard of” to say a young player is talented. Just letting us know his strengths and weaknesses is sufficient.

    Actually, that draft was before the combine. Townsend had a very impressive 2 days and most believe he played his way into the top ten, so the Sounders may have to take a less polished option if they want to draft a forward. Or maybe they can make a deal to move up?
