So when we decided to do an SB Nation mock draft for it, I went in expecting that I was probably going to rather pass than pick up the scraps left over at 8th overall. Unsurprisingly, I was correct. None of the few players I had pegged as capable of actually improving the Rapids -- guys like Dan Kennedy, Thomas McNamera or Markey Delgado -- made it that far down.
The Rapids are a team that currently has a few very good, star-caliber players with a whole lot of nothing below them on the depth chart. That in mind, I went into this thinking that I would only pick a player who I thought would actively make the Rapids a better team, and not another no-name to add to the pile of no-names littering the roster already. None of the players who fit that criteria fell to No. 8 in this draft. - Chris White, Burgundy Wave
The draft will be today at 2 p.m. Mountain time. It won't be televised or anything; much like the Supplemental Draft after the MLS SuperDraft, it will just be performed via a conference between the teams and the results will likely be spilled to the internet shortly after.
