The Final SBI 2017 MLS Mock Draft


Get ready for a wild 2017 MLS Draft.

That is the sense around the Los Angeles area as teams throughout the league posture and position themselves for moves in Friday’s draft. Minnesota United and Atlanta United have been inundated with offers for the top two picks in the draft and there is a possibility we could see all three top picks in the draft traded.

The players garnering the most attention at the top of the draft? The trio of Miles Robinson, Abu Danladi and Jeremy Ebobisse are front and center as the most highly-sought-after prospects in the pool, and any of the three could be the first to take the stage at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Minnesota United picks first, and will likely take a forward if the pick isn’t traded. Now, if the top overall selection is traded, the odds are good that the team trading up will be doing so to snag Robinson.

As we always say, mock drafts are a bit of a futile exercise, for a variety of reasons. Projecting what 22 teams will do is impossible, and then there is the reality that trades can and will shake things up. Our mock draft is put together taking into account player rankings, team needs and input from various interviews with coaches and general managers from around the league.

Now, without any further delay, here is the final SBI 2017 MLS Mock Draft:
