Both matches on Day 1 of the adidas MLS Player Combine were blowouts, but there was a lot to talk about. The day's breakout player: Daniel Johnson, a midfielder from Louisville. For who stood out, the latest on SuperDraft maneuvering and who was watching.

Both matches on Day 1 of the adidas MLS Player Combine were blowouts, but there was a lot to talk about.

Combine Chatter:
Sam Stejskal @samstejskal: ATL's Darren Eales tells me teams are inquiring re: No. 2 pick & that they'd be good moving it for right offer. ATL also holds 8th pick.
Scott French @ScottJFrench: An assistant coach for @LAGalaxy: Ante Razov, on LA's '96 roster, joins Curt Onalfo's staff. Had been with Sounders. @FourFourTwoUSA
Ives Galarcep @SoccerByIves: Final- Control 3, Chaos 1. Daniel Johnson the star, match to forget for Brandon Aubrey, among others. Gressel, Lewis, Moewes looked good
Aaron Nielsen @ENBSports: Danladi proves why I have him my number #1 for #MLSSuperDraft. Canadians Reid, Awuah, Nanco and Wright all had good touches #MLSCombine.
A.J. Barnold @ajbarnold: Jacori Hayes earning a free kick - not unusual. Most fouls suffered in the ACC. #MLSCombine
Kyle McCarthy @kylejmccarthy: Day 1 of #MLSPlayerCombine is generally a pass. Valuable take on player fitness, tho. Day 2 usually offers the best insight. #MLS
