Chivas USA was the fourth team to acquire a first-round pick via draft today, and used the No. 14 overall pick to select Victor Estupinan, a forward from Ecuador. Not much was known about him prior to his signing with MLS and before he showed at the MLS Combine.
At the combine, Estupinan was among the more impressive players. Prior to that, he led the reserve squad of Quito to their championship and led the reserves in scoring.
Real Salt Lake was the original owners of the pick, but did what many expected of them and traded out of the position. RSL has not always seen the draft as the way they want to build their team, and said they were unlikely to find a player that could help right away at this point in the draft.
