The 2016 MLS Draft is almost here, and if you are wondering how players in the draft pool are stacking up after the MLS Combine, look no further.

The final SBI MLS Draft Big Board is your guide for where players are being projected to go in the draft. After conversations with more than two dozen coaches and general managers, as well as scouts, college coaches and players, we feel pretty good about offering a good glimpse into how teams see the talent in this year’s draft.

There are sure to be surprises, and reaches, and players who MLS clubs have stashed away or found in their own in-depth searches and individual team combines, but this group of players should make up the majority of the 81 players selected in the MLS draft.

Now, without further ado, here is the FINAL SBI 2016 MLS Draft Big Board:
