With the 2009 MLS season in full swing, one of the big story lines of the new season is the arrival of one of the best draft classes in recent memory. With nine MLS draft picks earning starts in week one, and many of those players expected to play key roles this season, 2009 could very well become the year of the MLS rookie.

Major League Soccer is chronicling the lives of some of those draft picks in a new video series called Rookie Life: Diary of a Draft Pick. The series will follow rookies such as Stefan Frei, Sam Cronin, Omar Gonzalez, A.J. Delagarza, Chris Pontius, Steve Zakuani and Jean Alexandre from their experiences at the MLS Combine straight through their first MLS seasons.

Here is the second episode of the series:
