Sounders FC drafts Creighton defender Andrew Duran with No. 15 overall pick

duran mug.jpgSounders FC has selected Creighton defender Andrew Duran with the No. 15 pick in the first round of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft.

Duran has been described as a versatile defender that’s even played some as a midfielder. On the ESPN broadcast, Taylor Twellman described him as a “steal.”

“Andrew is a player that we like,” said coach Sigi Schmid. “He is a player that’s very two-footed. He’s comfortable playing on the left side of the center in the back as well as the right side. He was the main defender on the team that was the best defensive team in the country last year so he’s got to be doing something right.”

Seattle’s previous first-round draft picks were Steve Zakuani (2009, 1st overall) and David Estrada (2010, 11th overall). Seattle traded away its first-round pick last year, but took Michael Tetteh (20th overall) with its first of four second-round picks.

I’ve included his full bio, highlights and interviews after jump…
