Sounders Trade-Up And Draft Eriq Zavaleta


In the dwindling moment of the #10 pick, normally astounding fashion, the Sounders traded their #16 pick along with some allocation money for the selection. With the Pick the Sounders drafted Indiana Forward, and a member of Generations Adidas, Eriq Zavaleta. The question is will he stay at forward for Sigi Schmid and co. It’s been mentioned on a few different occasions that he possess the ability to play on the back line and you can’t help but wonder if that’s where he’ll end up.

 

Take a look at his Roger Levesque style celebration at the :30 mark.
