COACHES' BREAKDOWN: "Played defensive midfielder, and they moved him to centerback as well. Really comfortable on the ball. Tough defensively. Good awareness and leadership in back. Plays with his head up ... Took leadership role on the team ... Not sure what his physical qualities are since that team tended to drop a bit more and have teams come at you ... Not sure how much he was tested physically and if he can handle MLS ... But always a good player ... I liked him better this year as a centerback than past years as holding mid. It fit his abilities better. Pretty good ball winner and pretty good in air. Feet good enough to keep ballin possession ... I'd be surprised if he got picked. I like Franco a lot more to play at next level ... He's good. Franco has a better feel for the game."
