MLS Mock Draft: New England Revolution Select Rich Balchan With 24th Overall Pick

24. Rich Balchan (New England Revolution)

Kevin McCauley (SB Nation): Let's face it, Shalrie Joseph isn't going to be able to play forever. While Balchan might not be as complete of a player as Joseph, he's certainly a very good tackler. New England and Balchan would benefit a lot from the player learning behind Joseph for a year or two. Between his current skill set and the tutoring of Joseph, Balchan can become a quality starting defensive midfielder in MLS.

Drew Epperley (WV Hooligan): I like this pick for the Revs. A smart, skillful defensive midfielder, one that will help Shalrie Joseph be himself again in the midfield. Possibly a huge steal for Steve Nicol here.
