Fresh off losing Edson Buddle to Europe, the Los Angeles Galaxy selected Paolo Cardozo, a Uruguayan midfielder. Like the other foreigners in the draft, little is known about him outside of how he performed in the MLS Combine.
Despite playing well at the combine, there are some significant concerns about Cardozo's size. He stands just 5-foot-4, the smallest players in this year's draft pool. He was signed as a youth by Argentine power River Plate and has been at Quilmes the last two years.
Chances are, he won't be expected to play much right out of the gate and is more of a high-upside gamble by the Galaxy, who acquired Chad Barrett in a trade earlier in the day.
