Mike Seamon (Villanova) is Sounders FC’s Round Two pick

His bio lists him at 6-1, 175 pounds. It also calls him “an expert finisher who can score in bunches.”
Sounds like exactly what Sounders FC needs. Finishing. How many chances were not finished last season?
Seamon was all-Big East first team last season and led the Wildcats in scoring all four years of college. On the surface, this is the type of player Seattle was looking for — a litte size and height, ability to score a lot and versatile. Looks like a good pick.
Reminder: NO third round pick for Sounders FC. It would have been the 43rd overall, but it goes to Houston from the Patrick Ianni deal.
Two good points raised on comments from you:
1. I would say that the drafting of Estrada and Seamon is A) to provide more scoring punch. B) Seamon effectively replaces Le Toux and C) I’m not going to argue the notion that going with offense was done with the idea that Montero could be loaned out. That has merit to me.
2. Allocation signing – Kasey Keller was that. Seattle had first allocation rights to him last year as new team.
Discovery signing – What Osvaldo Alonso and other USL guys were. More for domestic players.
