MLS Draft: Servando Carrasco Picked By Seattle Sounders At No. 27

With the third of their second round picks in the MLS SuperDraft, the Seattle Sounders selected Servando Carrasco, a holding midfielder from the University of California. The draft is allowing the Sounders to build depth, and this pick is no exception. With Osvaldo Alonso entrenched in the midfield, Carrasco gives the Sounders a backup option and a player that can step-in during non-MLS competitions.

In 2010, Carrasco appeared in 20 games for the Bears, scoring seven goals and tallying three assists. For his career, he's appeared in 73 games, scoring 13 goals and assisting on 13 others. Carrasco was an All-Pac Ten second team selection in 2008 and 2009 before being named a first-teamer in 2010.

The Sounders have clusters of picks, and choose next at No. 29. After that, it's a long layoff for Seattle, with its fifth and final pick coming in the third round, at No. 49.
