Sounders draft four in Tuesday’s MLS Supplemental Draft

The four-round MLS Supplemental Draft starts at 11 a.m. today and will take place on a leaguewide conference call. You can follow the action on a live tracker on MLSsoccer.com.

Sounders FC has four picks in the draft, as noted below. Seattle traded its first-round pick to Chicago in order to acquire forward Sammy Ochoa in the allocation process and picked up a second-round pick from FC Dallas in a trade involving goalkeeper Chris Seitz after the 2010 re-entry draft.

I’ll have updates below and throughout the day on the blog.

Round 2, No. 33 overall — D Tim Pontius, UC Santa Barbara

Round 2, No. 34 overall — M Jason Banton (international)

Round 3, No. 53 overall — F Abdul Aman, Washington

Round 4, No. 72 overall — D Wes Feigner, Cal Poly

Huskies defender Jamie Finch, a Bothell native, was selected by the Columbus Crew with the 29th overall pick in the second round. Here’s a complete list of players selected.

Also, Seattle native and O’Dea grad Doug Herrick was drafted by Portland in the third round. He’s a goalkeeper out of St. Mary’s.

What do you think of the picks?
