The Vancouver Whitecaps kicked off the 2011 MLS SuperDraft in surprising fashion, selecting United States Under-20 forward Omar Salgado with the first overall selection. After the Whitecaps stole the early headlines, they continued to stockpile talent, taking Akron's Generation adidas midfielder Michael Nanchoff with their second first-round pick (No. 8 overall).

In the later rounds the Whitecaps took a pair of players out of Notre Dame, selecting midfielder Jeb Brovsky with the first pick of the second round (No. 19 overall) and fullback Bilal Duckett with the first pick of the third round (No. 37).

SBI's Mike Nastri was able to catch up with Salgado after he put on his Whitecaps scarf for the first time. Our video interview is after the jump:
