Soccer America's Year 2 mock draft
by Paul Kennedy, January 14th, 2010 7AM



[WPS] Women's Professional Soccer will hold its second draft of college players on Friday at the NSCAA Convention in Philadelphia. This year's draft is deep with two Olympic gold-medalists, Tobin Heath and Lauren Cheney, expected to go early. Does Atlanta go with one of them or select local product, Kelley O'Hara, the 2009 Soccer America Player of the Year from Stanford?

1. Atlanta Beat, Tobin Heath, North Carolina, M
Most skillful player in draft.

2. Boston Breakers, Lauren Cheney, UCLA, F
Breakers' top pick a year ago, Olympic teammate Amy Rodriguez, disappointed and was traded to Philadelphia for No. 2 pick.

3. FC Gold Pride, Kelley O'Hara, Stanford, F
Moves across the bay to Pride's new home in Castro Valley/Hayward.

4. Chicago Red Stars, Whitney Engen, North Carolina, D
Won three national titles with the Tar Heels.

5. Los Angeles Sol, Brittany Taylor, Connecticut, D
Recovered from knee injury that sidelined her in 2008.

6. Sky Blue FC, Casey Nogueira, North Carolina, F
Terrible regular season may have dropped her three spots.

7. Washington Freedom, Nikki Washington, North Carolina, M
Top winger in the draft but coming off a knee injury.

8. Los Angeles Sol, Ali Riley, Stanford, D
Grew up in Southern California but represents New Zealand internationally.

9. Los Angeles Sol, Kara Lang, UCLA, M/F
With third first-round pick Sol can take a chance on Lang, injured last fall.

10. FC Gold Pride, Michelle Enyeart, Portland, M/F
Gets to play with former Portland alum Christine Sinclair.
