    OK, let's play Armchair GM and stock your team from the draft. Obviously these teams have certain players in mind that we don't know about for their SI/Allocations, and those will influence their positional needs. But for the sake of this "draft," let's assume your team is going to be built entirely from this list.

    Who do you pick, and once you do, which of the players does the original team pull back?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that I have a better chance of being selected in the Expansion Draft than Tony Meola does.

    Why do I feel like these two teams are going to look like they have more talent than the Revs do?

    This is a good squad and all, but I think overall it's more expensive and older than they're really gonna go. Maybe they don't take a Meola and instead grab a cheaper guy, like a Ring, in the later rounds.
