[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.

Moves across the bay to Pride's new home in Castro Valley/Hayward.

4. Chicago Red Stars, Whitney Engen, North Carolina, D

5. Los Angeles Sol, Brittany Taylor, Connecticut, D

Terrible regular season may have dropped her three spots.

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