– Toronto FC Transfers, Trades, Signings & Rumors

2009 SBI MLS Mock Draft (version 3.0)

Sources indicate that offers are already flying from teams eager to move up in this loaded draft.

2. Toronto FC- Omar Gonzalez, D, Maryland

The list of teams interested in moving up to this pick continues to grow because there are a handful of teams eager to grab Gonzalez. TFC isn’t convinced in Gonzalez and look very likely to grab the best trade package. Sources tell me offers have already been made and Los Angeles, FC Dallas, D.C. United and New England have all been identified as teams interested in moving up.

4. Toronto- Marcus Tracy, F, Wake Forest

It is starting to look like Tracy, a player most thought would be a lock no. 1 overall pick will fall a few slots. It isn’t that teams don’t rate him, it is that Tracy loses out to Generation adidas options when teams factor in his salary counting against the cap. There is also a stronger need for defenders around the league, making Gonzalez and Wallace more coveted.

13. Toronto- O’Brian White, F, UConn

Yes, we see this pick happening, with Toronto being the only team ready to gamble a first-round pick on a player coming off ACL surgery. Is it really that much of a gamble? I’m hearing that White will be back in April. One potential issue with this pick is the fact that the lack of interest in White as a first-round pick could lead to MLS not offering White a good contract before the MLS Draft and White just might balk if MLS tries to low-ball him once he is drafted.
