MLS SuperDraft: Rounds 3 and 4

The Whitecaps have selected three more prospects

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Vancouver Whitecaps have finished up at the MLS Superdraft, selecting three more prospects to add to their pool.

With the 50th overall pick (9th pick of 3rd round), the Whitecaps went with University of Washington midfielder James Moberg. You can find out more information about Moberg's Washington career here. The kid stands 6'2 and plays the central midfield spot. You can see some of his shake and bake, courtesy the MLS twitter page.

Moberg had his final year cut short by a knee injury, but still managed three goals in six matches. Overall, he had 10 goals and 21 points as a member of the Huskies.

With the 71st overall pick (10th pick in the 4th round), the Whitecaps added a Canuck; Victoria BC's Josh Heard. The forward is also a former Husky, although he managed just a single goal in 19 starts in his final year.

Finally, the Whitecaps used the 77th overall pick (16th in 4th round) on midfielder/defender Tyler David from Saint Louis University. You can read a nice piece about what David brings to the table here, but the one word that popped out to me was versatility.

It will be interesting to see how much of an impact these players can make, or if they'll simply be bodies in the next training camp. In any case, they are now part of the Whitecaps family. Congratulations, and welcome!
