2014 MLS SuperDraft: Colorado Rapids Hold Pick No. 11

Colorado has plenty of options in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft in Philadelphia with their No. 11 pick.

Joe Robbins

The Colorado Rapids will hold the 11th overall selection in the MLS SuperDraft in January, along with two second round selections that they got from various trades along the way.

Unlike last season, where the Rapids were looking for some immediate impact from their draft picks (in case you missed out on it, they did), the Rapids have all sorts of options this time around. They have enough depth at every position right now that they can afford to go for upside at the No. 11 pick instead of looking for guys that they think should be stepping into the starting XI every single game. (That, and one has to assume that finding another Deshorn Brown or Dillon Powers is pretty unlikely unless they really are scouting wizards in the Rapids FO.)

Will Colorado need a new goalkeeper? It's likely by that point, and they can grab a Zac Macmath type of guy without the need for him to start immediately. Colorado wants another field player? They can have their pick, and they'll likely be no higher than third on the depth chart right away.

Remember, these aren't bad problems to have.
