Revolution trade up for No. 1 pick in MLS draft

The New England Revolution have obtained the No. 1 overall pick

in the MLS SuperDraft from Toronto FC for the fourth pick and

allocation money.

It will be the highest pick for the Revolution, who missed the

playoffs in each of the past three years. In 2002, the team picked

Taylor Twellman, who retired as the franchise’s all-time leading

scorer.

The draft will take place on Thursday at the Indiana Convention

Center.
