There's perks to being a professional athlete, you know. Some of the the 2014 MLS SuperDraft's top prospects are beginning to find this out.
The above players — A.J. Cochran, Eric Miller, Steve Neumann and Christian Dean — all expected to be chosen early during Thursday's SuperDraft (noon ET, ESPNEWS), each received a customized Philadelphia Flyers sweater from the NHL club during a quick visit to the team's facilities on Wednesday.
Think of it as a little "Brotherly Love" while in town, awaiting to get their pro soccer careers started.

Keep those sweaters within reach and bundle up, boys, for some of you may be headed to Canada or New England.
