MLS Mock Expansion Draft: Timbers Take Alejandro Moreno; Whitecaps Select Khano Smith

13. Timbers: Alejandro Moreno, F, Philadelphia Union

Chopping Timber: Alright, I may end up regretting this pick, but it's hard to look over Moreno's abilities strictly from a stats sheet. While he hasn't exactly set the city on fire in Philly, over the three years he played for Columbus he notched over 20 goals. Also given his wealth of experience in the forward position I believe he could be of use to both Bright Dike and Eddie Johnson.

14. Whitecaps: Khano Smith, MF/FW, New England Revolution

86 Forever: Any time you can take the world's best Bermudan footballer, you have to do it. More importantly, Smith is another high-value journeyman who can play multiple positions at the MLS level. Major League Soccer places a premium on guys like Smith, who can go up front as a fairly workable playmaking attacker or who can slot into the midfield and play responsibly, if not exactly spectacularly. He will never get past the bench, but he's exactly the sort of substitute you want available.

New protected players: Andrew Jacobson (Philadelphia), Jason Griffiths (New England)
