All Wizards’ Draft Picks Summary: Final

#1 Chance Myers

 With the first overall pick in the draft our Wizards chose UCLA defender Chance Myers. Myers played just two years of college ball collecting a total of 4 goals and 4 assists playing in 42 games. You can probably guess by his hair that he is from Cali, specifically Thousand Oaks, CA. While he is an unexpected pick this high in the draft Myers has been in the eyes of U.S. National team for some time now having played for both the U-18 and U-20 teams. This January Chance was called into the U-23 teams camp. Continue reading

Surprise Number 1 Pick?

Originally posted from Down the Byline. 

From College to the Pros is a great blog dealing with players coming up the college ranks and turning pro. They did a full 4 round mock draft earlier today, not many sites will actually do that. The big rumor from the blog right now is that the Wizards could make a surprise selection with the number 1 pick tomorrow, Tony Beltran. Beltran, a midfielder, did not compete at the combine this past week due to injury, but he was a starter on the U-20 team this past summer that made it to the quarterfinals. Would make for a lot of interesting talk if KC were to take him.
