Going into the fourth weekend of the MLS season, 15 collegians taken in the 2007 MLS SuperDraft and Supplemental Draft have already made their pro debuts.

So far, as many players taken in the fourth round of the SuperDraft or lower (Supplemental Draft) have played as players taken in the first round of the SuperDraft -- five.

North Carolina's Michael Harrington, who made MLS history when he scored three minutes into Kansas City's opener at D.C. United and has been outstanding on the left side of midfield, is an early favorite for Rookie of the Year honors.

Less heralded players who have gotten off to good starts are Clemson's Dane Richards, who has solidified  the right side of the unbeaten New York Red Bulls' midfield, Oregon State product Robbie Findley, who scored Los Angeles' only goal in its first two games, and Virginia striker Adam Cristman, the 48th pick in the SuperDraft who has two assists in three starts.

Maryland's Maurice Edu, the No. 1 pick for expansion Toronto FC, became the first Generation adidas player to play when he debuted Wednesday night in a 3-0 loss at Kansas City

1 Maurice Edu (Toronto FC-Maryland) 1/68
3 Michael Harrington (Kansas City-North Carolina) 3/270 (1 goal, 1 assist)
5 Wells Thompson (New England-Wake Forest) 3/141
7 John Cunliffe (Chivas USA-Ft. Lewis) 3/42 (1 assist)
10 Andrew Boyens (Toronto FC-UC Santa Barbara) 3/197
15 Brad Evans (Columbus-UC Irvine) 2/30
16 Robbie Findley (Los Angeles-Oregon State) 2/62 (1 goal)
19 Dane Richards (New York-Clemson) 4/318 (1 assist)
23 Ty Harden (Los Angeles-Washington) 2/180
33 Sinisa Ubiparipovic (New York-Akron) 2/7
42 Kurt Morsink (Kansas City-James Madison) 1/2
48 Adam Cristman (New England-Virginia) 3/206 (2 assists)
55 Aaron Hohlbein (Kansas City-Wisconsin) 1/90
73 Osei Teleford (Chicago-Liberty) 1/1
77 Gary Flood (New England-Hofstra) 2/83
