Expansion Philly heads SuperDraft list

[MLS] In the next week or so, Peter Nowak will be the most popular man in MLS. As holder of the No. 1 pick, as well as the first pick in three subsequent rounds, the Philadelphia head coach will be awash in offers, and so too could several other teams as they discuss, swap and barter many of the 64 available slots.

There will be changes in the SuperDraft sequence, and not just via trades conducted before selections begin at 2 p.m. ET. There are a few picks that are conditional, based on games played or other criteria that could alter the order.

Dallas, New York and San Jose currently lead with six picks apiece. Toronto, which snapped up O'Brian White, Sam Cronin and Stefan Frei in the first round last year, has only two picks this time around.

Here's the current draft rundown, based on last year's final finish and trades of which all details have been announced. If a pick was obtained in a trade, the team that last traded the pick is listed in parentheses.
