Final Thoughts before draft day... and a poll.

That's the end of our With The 18th Overall Pick... series. I've outlined 8 players that I think could be good fits with the Rapids or just might be BPA candidates if they happen to be available at 18th overall.

Jason Herrick F Maryland

Ashley McInnes M/F Tulsa

Anthony Ampaipitakwong (AKA Alphabet Midfielder) M Akron

Michael Boxall D UCSB

Jalil Anibaba D UNC

Daniel Keat M Dartmouth

CJ Sapong F James Madison


Justin Meram F Michigan


There are some other players I would have liked the time to gather info on like Stanford D Bobby Warshaw, who had a fantastic Combine and might just have put himself into first round consideration as a Center Back, but unfortunately time has run short.

The last question I'll ask you all before the live coverage begins tomorrow is simply this - which of the nine players I've mentioned, if any, do you want the Rapids to draft? Assume that all of the candidates up there will be available at 18th, even though it's very doubtful that Ampaipitakwong and Anibaba are.

Finally, an announcement. The draft is tomorrow and I'll be covering it live from the Baltimore Convention Center on Twitter, this site and SBnation's Denver Hub as well - make sure to follow @BurgundyWave if you want the draft updates live as they happen from me. Scott Kessler from Brotherly Game (@ScottdKessler) and Martin Shatzer from Black And Red United (@MShatzerDC) will also be there representing SBnation.
