If your team did not make the MLS playoffs - and that means you, fan of Colorado, San Jose, FC Dallas, DC United, Toronto and the Los Angeles Galaxy - that does not mean you have nothing to look forward to. A shot at MLS glory is not in the cards but the MLS will hold its draft sometime early next year.
Yes, I know, it's far too early to think about the MLS SuperDraft. It's kinda like Christmas shopping in July. But for some, it's never too early.
Check out this blog post from the Climbing The Ladder blog. Also, here is another post via From College to the Pros. You'll find plenty of relevant information about the draft and possible prospects and such. It's a good read, particularly if your team is on the outside looking in.
