With the MLS SuperDraft set for Thursday, I figured it was a good time for a reminder of which picks Sounders FC holds, particularly after Wednesday’s trade, which saw Seattle and Chicago swap first-round selections.
The Sounders will pick once in each of the four rounds at No. 8, 21, 55 and 77 overall. The first two rounds will be held Thursday in Philadelphia and the final two rounds will be held Tuesday via conference call.
Here is a round-by-round look:

Note: Natural pick (No. 13 overall) traded to Chicago in Jalil Anibaba trade

Note: Natural pick (No. 32 overall) traded to Houston in Servando Carrasco trade
