With the 15th pick of the 2012 SuperDraft, Sounders FC has selected Andrew Duran, a defender from Creighton. Alexi Lalas says “Seattle got a steal.” But cautions that Duran probably projects more as depth than an immediate starter.

Here is his bio from Creighton, including this list of 2011 honors:

2011 Honors
NSCAA All-America Second-Team
NSCAA Midwest Region First-Team
College Soccer News All-America First-Team
MVC Defensive Player of the Year
First-Team All-MVC
MVC All-Tournament Team
MVC Scholar-Athlete First Team
MVC Defensive Player of the Week (Oct. 24)
Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week (Oct. 24)

I’ll be back with some more background information soon, and then with some highlights from a phone interview we’re expecting with the newest Sounder.
