2012 SB Nation Mock MLS SuperDraft: New England Revolution Pick Chandler Hoffman, Ethan Finlay

3. New England Revolution: Chandler Hoffman, F, UCLA

It is no secret that the Revolution offense was anemic last season, and with Milton Caraglio gone and Rajko Lekic likely to follow, New England is looking rather barren up top. Hoffman was an excellent goalscorer for UCLA this season and is showing well in the combine with two goals through the first two days. His nose for goal and ability to make intelligent runs should help create chances for the Revs in 2012.

22. Revolution: Ethan Finlay, F, Creighton

Finlay was an integral part Creighton's offense this season, scoring 14 goals from a forward position and finishing as a runner-up to Billy Schuler for the Hermann Trophy. While he lacks the true finisher's polish of Hoffman, Finlay has the ball skills to play out wide as well as at striker, and with Zerka still not a lock to return, wing depth may well be a major concern for the Revs in 2012. Finlay could provide spark and dept, and is frankly a steal at pick 22.

These picks were made by Steve Stoehr, managing editor for Revolution blog The Bent Musket.
