A brief history of Sounders FC’s draft picks: No. 13, 21, 55 and 77

With the 2014 MLS SuperDraft approaching, I thought it would be an interesting exercise to look back at history and see who was selected with the picks Sounders FC holds: No. 13, 21, 55 and 77.

Some familiar names came up, including…

— New Sounders (Corey Hertzog, Stefan Frei)
— Former MLS Sounders (James Riley)
— Former MLS draft picks (Leone Cruz)
— Former trialists with the MLS Sounders (Josh Gardner, Jordan Graye, Tyrel Lacey)
— Former USL Sounders (Gardner, Noah Merl, Andrew Gregor)
— Local products (Ely Allen, Nick Downing)
— UW men’s soccer coach Jamie Clark
