Revs hold No. 1 SuperDraft pick after deal with Toronto
INDIANAPOLIS — There's a player out there that the New England Revolution want real bad.
The Revs on Wednesday sent the No. 4 overall pick and allocation money to Toronto FC in exchange for the No. 1 overall pick in Thursday's SuperDraft (noon ET on MLSsoccer.com, ESPN3.com and YouTube).
The No. 1 pick will also be broadcast live on ESPN SportsCenter at noon ET.
The Revolution have never had a No. 1 pick in MLS history. Their highest-ever pick came in 2002 when they took the club's all-time leading scorer, Taylor Twellman, at No. 2.
Toronto FC will hold the No. 3 and No. 4 spots on Thursday.
Chivas USA will pick in between New England and Toronto FC at No. 2. Goats manager José Luis Sánchez Solá previously told FutbolMLS.com on Monday that he would be selecting Big East Midfielder of the Year Carlos Alvarez with the club's only pick of the SuperDraft.
