2011 MLS Draft, Live Coverage: Columbus Crew Select Justin Meram With No. 15 Pick

Another pick, another trade. The Columbus Crew made the fifth trade of the day, acquiring the No. 15 overall pick from the San Jose Earthquakes and picking Justin Meram. The University of Michigan forward scored 17 goals and registered eight assists during 23 games.

Prior to transferring to Michigan as a junior, he scored 51 goals and had 30 assists in 52 games at Yavapai College. During his two-year Michigan career, he continued to perform at a high level, scoring 24 goals and registering 14 assists in 41 games.

With so many players leaving this offseason, Meram is a player that will likely be given a chance to contribute almost right away.
