The Seattle Sounders traded up in the first round of the MLS
SuperDraft to select Indiana forward Eriq Zavaleta, and then
addressed defensive depth by taking Brown defender Dylan Remick in
the second round.
Seattle was supposed to pick 16th in the first round on
Thursday, but traded with Toronto to move up to No. 10 and take
Zavaleta. The 20-year-old Zavaleta was the Big Ten offensive player
of the year last season after scoring 18 goals, good for third most
in the country. Zavaleta also assisted on the game-winning goal
that gave Indiana its eighth national championship.
The 21-year-old Remick was selected 35th overall.
He was selected first-team all-Ivy League each of the last three
seasons at Brown.
