– Toronto FC Transfers, Trades, Signings & Rumors

SBI MLS Mock Draft (Version 2.0)

The growing buzz is that Toronto FC is looking to part with some, if not all, of its first-round picks. A team poised to make serious noise in 2009, TFC is looking for veterans who can contribute immediately rather than rookies who will need time to develop. The club also already has three young prospects it rates highly in Abdus Ibrahim, Johann Smith and Brian Edwards, so fitting three more rookies on a roster that only has four developmental roster spots would be difficult.

2. Toronto FC- Omar Gonzalez, D, Maryland

This pick stands a very good chance of being dealt, with Tracy and Gonzalez the most coveted players by potential trade partners. Toronto could certainly use a central defender and Gonzalez is the best of the bunch. If Mo Johnston uses this pick, you can almost certainly bet that picks No. 4 and 13 will be dealt.

4. Toronto- Marcus Tracy, F, Wake Forest

So how would Tracy go from top pick material to No. 4? While I don’t think he will slide this far (a trade would likely help him land higher) we shouldn’t forget that Patrick Nyarko was considered a No. 1 pick candidate before sliding to No. 7 in last year’s draft.

13. Toronto- O’Brian White, F, UConn

As most folks are aware by now, White is recovering from ACL surgery, a surgery that has scared off plenty of teams as well as MLS itself. If TFC can’t find takers for its draft picks, you can bet that Mo Johnston won’t be scared to take a flier on a hometown player Toronto FC coveted greatly last year. If he recovers fully from surgery, Toronto could wind up with the steal of the draft.
