  MLS SuperDraft - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The MLS SuperDraft is an annual event in which the Major League Soccer teams select players who have graduated from college or otherwise been signed by the league.
The SuperDraft was first instituted in 2000, as a combination of the MLS College Draft, in which players having graduated college were selected, and the MLS Supplemental Draft, in which all other players were chosen.
The draft is divided into six rounds of ten picks, the order of which is determined by a combination of the teams' playoff and regular season positions.

Well, in the case of the 2005 MLS SuperDraft, the "winner" designation should go to the players themselves, as diversity reigned and stereotypes were finally destroyed.
What has occurred instead, is that MLS has never been better as it now heads into its tenth season, and college soccer is enjoying a golden age of attention and competitive balance (back to back titles by the Hoosiers notwithstanding).
And therein lies the beauty of the MLS SuperDraft: the player pool is brimming with diversity of age and situation, forcing clubs to choose wisely and well beyond just the next best college senior available.
