Sounders pick up three players in final two rounds of 2015 MLS SuperDraft

The Sounders picked up three players — including a Hermann Trophy finalist — during the third and fourth rounds of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, which concluded Tuesday via a league-wide conference call.

Seattle used the sixth selection of the third round to draft forward Andy Craven out of the University of North Carolina. Craven led the nation with 35 points during his redshirt senior season with the Tar Heels, earning an All-American nod and being named a finalist for the Hermann Trophy given to the national player of the year.

In the fourth round, the Sounders drafted Marquette goalkeeper Charlie Lyon at No. 75 overall and West Virginia forward Andy Bevin a few picks later at No. 80.

Lyon was an Academic All-American during his redshirt senior year with the Golden Eagles. Bevin, a native of New Zealand, tallied career highs in goals (12), assists (8) and points (32) during his final season in Morgantown.

Thus ends the long march of offseason MLS drafts. Players begin reporting to preseason camp later this week.
