The Colorado Rapids didn't have a lot of needs heading into the draft and little will be expected immediately out of the player they picked with the final pick of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, Eddie Ababio. The defensive player does not have a clear position at the MLS level and could play fullback, center back or defensive midfielder.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound University of North Carolina product scored 13 goals and had 12 assists during his four-year collegiate career. He'll have plenty of similarly skilled players to learn from for the defending MLS Cup champions. Anthony Wallace and Kosuke Kimura are similar players and will almost certainly earn starting spots once again.
