MOST COMMENTED

So far, 12 players taken in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft and Supplemental Draft have made their MLS debuts.

Michael Harrington made MLS history when he scored three minutes into Kansas City's opener at D.C. United, playing an outstanding game on the left side of midfield in a 4-2 win. Harrington, taken with the third pick out of North Carolina, is the highest draft pick to play so far.

The only other rookie to score is Oregon State product Robbie Findley, who scored Los Angeles' only goal in its first two games.

Former Virginia striker Adam Cristman, the 48th pick in the SuperDraft, has started both games for New England and set up Taylor Twellman for one of his two goals with a sweet layoff. Gary Flood, who has also started for the Revs, was taken with the 25th pick in the Supplemental Draft, making the Hofstra product the 77th pick overall.

Only four players taken in the first round played in the first two weeks of the MLS season, and no Generation adidas player has played so far.
