#MLS Re-Entry Draft and the #NERevs (updated)

Rev's Blitzz

December 17th is one of the most important dates for Major Leagues Soccer’s off season.  It’s the day when the league holds Stage Two of the Re-Entry Draft this year.  Teams will be able to make offers on the available players who qualified for the draft.  This time around New England will be able to select before only three other clubs (LA, NYCFC, and OCSC) making it unlikely they will be able to land the best of the available players.  However, despite having to sit back while sixteen other clubs have their say, the Rev’s front office may just be able to find what they need regardless.  Here’s my positional breakdown rankings of the players NE might be interested in bringing in.  This is not a full list of all available players.

Defenders 

  1. Hunter Jumper- 25 years old (28th overall pick in 2012)
  2. Bakary Soumare- 29 years old, Mali international
