2012 SB Nation Mock MLS SuperDraft: Galaxy Select Andy Rose, Yuri Gorentzvaig

With the last picks in each round, the LA Galaxy are going to have to be flexible. With our two picks in the SB Nation Soccer MLS Mock Draft, LAG Confidential went with Andy Rose - midfielder - from UCLA and Yuri Gorentzvaig.

19. LA Galaxy: Andy Rose, MF, UCLA

Rose played defensive midfielder at UCLA last year and thus is listed there, but he played some center back in college. I think being listed as a midfielder will see him drop some, but the Galaxy would be wise to pick him up and move him to centerback. He could start with A.J. DeLaGarza while Omar Gonzalez is recovering from his injury, and then when Gonzalez is ready to return, DeLaGarza could move out to the right back position he was originally drafted for. The Galaxy lost Greg Berhalter, and likely Leonardo as well as Frankie Hejduk this offseason, so they could stand to refill depth in the defense.

38. Galaxy: Yuri Gorentzvaig, F, International

Yuri Gortenzvaig was selected for his last name, which is long and difficult to say.

These picks were made by Jocelyn Becker, managing editor of LA Galaxy blog LAG Confidential.
