MLS Draft Team Recap: Seattle Sounders



The Seattle Sounders didn't wind up having a first-round pick when the MLS Draft concluded on Thursday, but the club's wheeling and dealing left the team as one of the draft's winners when all was said and done in Baltimore.

The Sounders traded out of the first round and secured some allocation money in the process, while using the four second-round picks it had to stockpile an impressive collection of prospects. Landing Generation adidas left back Michael Tetteh, who could form a dangerous left-wing partnership with Steve Zakuani, was a major score for Sigi Schmid's side, while Juan Leone Cruz could give the Sounders some depth in central defense.

SBI caught up with Tetteh after he was selected by the Sounders. You can watch our interview with Tetteh after the jump (and be sure to share your thoughts on Seattle's draft in the comments section below):
