As it happened: 2016 MLS SuperDraft

Tuesday January 12th, 2016

Chaos reigned supreme in the early stages of the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.

Wake Forest star midfielder Jack Harrison went first overall to the Chicago Fire–until he was traded to NYCFC moments later. Chicago wound up with Stanford and U.S. men's national team January call-up and fullback Brandon Vincent with NYCFC's fourth overall pick. 

The Philadelphia Union traded to have three picks in the top six, ending up with Georgetown defenders Joshua Yaro and Keegan Rosenberry and Creighton midfielder Fabian Herbers.

Along with Harrison, Yaro and Herbers, Generation Adidas players Omar Holness (UNC), Julian Buescher (Syracuse), Richie Laryea (Akron) and Andrew Tarbell (Clemson) all went in the opening 11 picks.

Here's how the draft's first two rounds unfolded (the final two rounds will be held over conference call on Tuesday):
