MLS announces eligible players for MLS SuperDraft 2021

Major League Soccer announced the list of 176 players eligible for selection in the MLS SuperDraft 2021. The list includes three players signed to the Generation adidas class: forward Calvin Harris (Wake Forest – sophomore), and midfielders Philip Mayaka (Clemson – sophomore) and Daniel Pereira (Virginia Tech – sophomore).

The SuperDraft will take place at 1PM CST on January 21, and will be broadcast on the league website and app, as well as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pluto TV. Selection order is determined in reverse order of the 2020 standings. As a result, Nashville SC will pick 20th overall (first round), 74th overall (third round), and 86th overall (compensatory round via trade with Minnesota). Nashville traded their second round pick to Chicago as part of their acquisition of Dax McCarty.

Nashville had a lot of success in the 2020 draft, taking Jack Maher second overall. In addition, they drafted Alistair Johnston 11th overall, who became the starting right-back and is now a Canadian international, as well as Elliot Panicco with the 13th pick, who became their backup goalkeeper.

Partially due to the truncated college schedule, as well as selecting much later in the draft, Nashville will have less options to work with. However, there is still plenty of talent in the draft, and Nashville have shown willingness to take a shot on players coming out of the college ranks. Finding a player who can fight for depth minutes or be loaned to USL to continue their development would be a success.

Ives Galarcep has published his always valuable SBI Draft Big Board, and his mock draft has Nashville SC selecting Michigan State center-back Brandon Hackenburg with their first round pick. While this isn’t a locked-in prediction (and he admits that), his mock draft is a good look at the tiers players will likely fall into in this year’s draft. It’s definitely worth a read as we get closer to the SuperDraft.
