FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Revolution have obtained the No. 1 overall pick in the MLS SuperDraft from Toronto FC for the fourth pick and allocation money.

It will be the highest pick for the Revolution, who missed the playoffs in each of the past three years. In 2002, the team picked Taylor Twellman, who retired as the franchise's all-time leading scorer.

The draft will take place on Thursday at the Indiana Convention Center.
