HOW ACQUIRED: Selected in the second round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft


COACHES' BREAKDOWN: Stevenson is one of the most skillful, technical players at a school that's known for producing them. A wide midfielder who's good in 1-v-1 situations, he can cut inside and dribble by guys. His shot from distance can be devastating, and he can pick a pass decently. Stevenson's performance suffered this year partly because he was playing through a torn labrum, but even without the injury, Stevenson isn't quite the complete package. He's quick over five yards, but not particularly fast over distance. He can be inconsistent at times, and he's not a great defender. Stevenson was a great fit for Akron's system, but in a system where he would have to hug the sideline and go box-to-box, athleticism could rear its head as an issue.
