AJ Soares was the first senior selected in the MLS SuperDraft, as the New England Revolution made him the No. 6 overall pick. Chances are, Steve Nicol saw a player that could help his team immediately, as the Revolution are coming off their first playoff-less season during the last nine years.
Soares is expected to play center back in MLS and has shown flashes of offensive ability during his four years at Cal. He scored 10 goals and has four assists, including five goals his senior year.
