2012 SB Nation MLS Mock SuperDraft: Bloggers Play GM For A Day

Darren Mattocks by Jeff Harwell/Zips Sports Photography

SB Nation conducted a mock MLS SuperDraft, with Darren Mattocks being the No. 1 overall pick.

The real Major League Soccer SuperDraft will be held on Jan. 12. If past form is any indicator, there will be more than a few surprises. Of course, that won't stop just about every outlet with any kind of interest in MLS from doing their own mock draft.

SB Nation's may not be any more accurate than some of those other ones, but we do like to think we have a unique take. Rather than having one expert make a guess at predicting what each team will do, we round up the 19 editors for our team-specific blogs, put them in a chatroom together and let them conduct a live mock draft. In an effort to further differentiate ourselves, we go through two full rounds.

Our thinking is simple: People who focus on one team will have better insight than someone who doesn't. Time will tell how accurate we are, but it is a fun exercise. If nothing else, it's an interesting peek into the world of soccer geekdom.

As it were, our mock draft was held on Sunday. The results are here. On Monday, we'll have full write-ups from each blogger explaining their picks. Follow this StoryStream for the full write-ups or click on the player's name.
