MLS Mock Expansion Draft 2011, Second Round: Montreal Impact Select Mike Fucito (Seattle Sounders)

With their second pick in the 2011 MLS Expansion Draft, the (fake) Montreal Impact select:

Mike Fucito (F, Seattle Sounders)

Kevin's explanation: Unlike the first pick, I can't really pick on the Sounders for leaving Fucito unprotected. The Seattle Sounders simply had too many solid players on their roster, many of them on small salaries that made them attractive picks. If this was last year's draft, they likely would have lost two players. Lamar Neagle and Servando Carrasco would also be decent options for an expansion team.

Fucito is getting picked for reasons similar to Cardozo. He's young, he's more talented than his stats suggest, and he's extremely cheap. These factors make him an extremely low-risk pick. While Fucito is a bit undersized and needs to improve his decision-making and composure on the ball, he's an intelligent player with blinding speed and a nose for goal.

Analysis from Drew Epperley: Seattle was bound to lose someone important. Fucito is a quality pick, as he is someone who has the ability to be a game-changer when needed. He's young, talented and super cheap.
