The second day of the 2016 Major League Soccer SuperDraft takes place today at noon and for our Beloved Burgundy Boys this is a time where they can look to add depth to their sqaud.
The goal for the Rapids: find depth and squad players.
What to Watch For:
1) Picks, Picks Picks: the Colorado Rapids have a number of picks in the third and fourth round today and this will help them build the squad. They currently have the 43rd, 56th, and 58th picks in the third round and the 63rd pick in the fourth round.
2) Defense, please: The Rapids have just five people listed as defenders (Marc Burch, Jared Watts, Sean St. Ledger, Axel Sjoberg, and Joseph Greenspan) and will need to find some depth. I am not sure if they will be able to find a starter that late in the draft, but they have had success identifying talent late in the draft (Dominique Badji).
3) Positive News: The Rapids need to seize control of the message right now and have some positive news come out about the club. They are being raked over the coals with the way they are running the club and they need news to turn in their favor. The draft can help them.
