The 2014 MLS SuperDraft came to a close on Tuesday afternoon, but not before 38 more players were chosen in advance of the upcoming MLS season.

UConn midfielder George Forchive and Indiana midfielder AJ Corrado were among the players selected during the final two rounds of the draft, which were by-and-large dominated by midfielders and forwards.

In total, 26 of the 38 picks were players at those positions, a stark comparison to the first two rounds in which teams mostly drafted defenders.

The last pick of the draft, which was held by the Seattle Sounders due them having a pick in the now-extinct Supplemental Draft, was Michigan midfielder Fabio Pereira.

The LA Galaxy also had a late pick at No. 72, but chose to pass instead of taking a player.

Here is a full recap of the third and fourth rounds of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft:
