Because they just aren't good enough. In one of the threads I posted every first round failure in MLS and they are almost about 80% failures after being highly saught after. It's in the post game thread but here's the quakes part I talk about with our draft picks and never really being taken serious. Alvarez, Amarikwa, Barrett, Beitashour, Cocrhane, Conway, Dunivant, Goldthwaite, Levesque, Lewis, Morrow, Mulrooney, Opara, O'Rourke, Robinson, Russell, Salinas, Saunders, Waibel, and Wondolowski have produced a good solid career. In comparison, Montoya, Annichero, McDonald, Onalfo, Rodriguez, Porter, Weaver, Rueda, Soto, Krakowiak, Clark, Viera, Farias, Farace, Mulraine, Evans, Ragusa, Narine, Hemmerich, Carrieri, Eidelwein, Woolfolk, Jorge Martinez, Luchi Gonzalez, Roner, Sakuda, Ozimek, Biddle, Lyssand, Walker, Maliza, Sanfilippo, Cronin, Wilson, Pecorelli, Pusek, Dombrowski, Arbelaez, Ramirez, Klaas, Jallow, Twellman, Brett Rodriguez, Fulton, Merl, Smarte, Bonnenkamp, Curry, Jepson, Ring, Thomas, Hoxie, Ampaipitakwong, Tuttle, Cortez, Garza, Hustedt, Blais, Diaz-Pizarro, Tiemstra, Kiffe, Krumpe, Muller, Delgado, Mitchell, McGlinn, Koval, Sofia, Corrado, Dubose, Knutsen, Broome, Mez, Hodan, Colvey, Tyler Thompson, Mfeka, Thierjung, Schilder, Thiaw, Partida, Rivas, Camara, and Anue never have, and never will amount to any MLS Quality and some of these guys were highly regarded. The interesting thing I found, since Fioranelli has taken over, we've passed on 5 total draft picks, so we aren't even using all of our draft picks in the god damn draft.
