MLS Draft 2012: Toronto FC Selects Aaron Maund With No. 12 Pick

In dire need of some quality defenders, Toronto FC went a little off the board to select Notre Dame's Aaron Maund with the No. 12 pick of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. Maund did not really shine in the combine and was not considered a first-round talent by many draft analysts, but he is a solid player with the ball at his feet and could be useful for Aaron Winter.

Maund was a four-year starter at Notre Dame, starting at least 18 matches every year. Considering how much trouble Toronto FC had on defense, there's plenty of reason to think that he'll get the same opportunity there. That he was a decent passer should help his cause, as Winter looks to build from the back.

Maund has also played at a relatively high level, appearing in the U20 World Cup in 2009 and for the U17 World Cup team in 2007.
