2020 MLS Mock Draft: 2.0

Round 1 Picks 1-13

Virginia junior midfielder Joe Bell is the top player in the 2020 MLS Super Draft. Bell should be a Generation Adidas prospect in the 2020 MLS Super Draft.

Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: November 9, 2019.

  1. Inter Miami C.F.: Joe Bell, M, Virginia

    The 6-0 180 lb Joe Bell can line up at left wing, right wing, attacking midfielder, defensive midfielder, left back, center back, or right back with his versatility. Basically Bell is a guy you can plug anywhere at midfielder or defense on the backline. Bell has 2 goals, 4 assists, and 8 points in 2019.

    Bell is a fantastic dribbler who can recognize where teammates are with his awareness on both ends. He also mirrors players and does a great job defending. Virginia has 12 shutouts in 2019 and this is largely due to Joe Bell, his leadership, and his relentless work ethic that his teammates at Virginia admire about him.

    Getting someone who can play anywhere at midfield as well as anywhere on the backline defensively is a great first step for Inter Miami C.F. He's a good building block for David Beckham's expansion franchise with Inter Miami C.F.

    Previous Pick: Tanner Beason, D, Stanford

  2. Nashville S.C.: Cal Jennings, F, Central Florida

    Nashville S.C. gets their striker here. The 5-10 165 lb Cal Jennings has 13 goals, 4 assists, and 30 points in 16 games so far for Central Florida. Jennings is hands down the best goal scorer in this draft class so far.

    How Cal Jennings does at the 2020 MLS Combine in terms of performance and interviews will go a long way. Right now, he's the second best player in the 2020 MLS Super Draft due to how consistent he is on film.

    Previous Pick: David Egbo, F, Akron

  3. F.C. Cincinnati: Tanner Beason, D, Stanford

    The 6-1 175 lb Tanner Beason is versatile enough to play left back, center back, or right back. Beason has 3 goals, 1 assist, 7 points, and has helped Stanford record 6 shutouts in 2019. He has not played since October due to an injury, but despite his injury he's still a top 5 talent.

    Tanner Beason is just as big as his former Stanford teammate Tomas Hilliard-Arce. Tomas Hilliard-Arce was more of a defensive defender. Beason is part of Stanford's Championship team and learned under Tomas Hilliard-Arce.

    Beason has very good foot speed and is more versatile than his predecessor. Tanner Beason is more of a two-way defender compared to his predecessor. He's a good building block for F.C. Cincinnati since they could use a player to compliment Frankie Amaya, last years first overall pick in the 2019 MLS Super Draft.

    Previous Pick: Cal Jennings, F, Central Florida

  4. Vancouver Whitecaps: Manuel Ferriol, M, James Madison

    The Whitecaps get the best player on the board at 4. The 5-11 150 lb Manuel Ferriol had 9 goals in 2018. Ferriol has 15 goals, 6 assists, and 36 points so far in 2019. Ferriol has done well enough to warrant top 5 consideration with his dominant season at James Madison.

    Can you say top 5 pick? Lapa probably goes in the top 5 unless he does bad at the 2020 MLS Combine, gets injured, or interviews poorly at the 2020 MLS Combine.

    Previous Pick: Bruno Lapa, M, Wake Forest

  5. Orlando City S.C.: Garrett McLaughlin, F, SMU

    Orlando City S.C. has drafted really well the last two years with Chris Mueller, Santiago Patino, and Kamal Miller. They also inked Benji Michel to a homegrown deal allowing them to take the best player on their board at 5. This team is picking this high in the 2020 MLS Super Draft due to a lousy front office, poor coaching, and awful team chemistry despite having the players and overall talent of a playoff team.

    The 6-0 170 lb Garrett McLuaghlin has 15 goals, 5 assists, and 35 points in 2019. Garrett McLaughlin has the speed, stamina, shooting power, shooting accuracy, dribbling, strength, and explosion, you want a striker to have on tape.

    Previous Pick: Edward Kizza, F, Pittsburgh

  6. New England Revoultion: Milan Iloski, F, UCLA

    New England gets a the best player on their board rather than drafting for need at 6. The 5-10 155 lb Milan Iloski can play striker, secondary striker, left wing, or right wing with his versatility. Iloski has 17 goals, 2 assists, and 36 points in 2019. He reminds me a lot of a former Revolution draft pick out of UCLA named Kelyan Rowe so New England drafts Iloski at 6.

    Previous Pick: Sergi Nus, D, Duke

  7. Columbus Crew S.C.: Josh Bauer, D, New Hampshire

    Columbus Crew S.C. gets a player who can be effective. With Darlington Nagbe now at midfielder Columbus Crew S.C., Columbus now has forwards and midfielders. Getting a defender to compliment the back line with Columbus is big. The 6-1 170 lb Josh Bauer helped New Hampshire record 10 shutouts at center back so far in 2019. He can help solve the woes for this backline in Columbus if he gets a Generation Adidas offer along with Joe Bell and Milan Iloski.

    Previous Pick: Dylan Nealis, M, Georgetown

  8. Houston Dynamo: Dylan Nealis, M, Georgetown

    Houston grabs the best player on the board at 8 that is a midfielder or a defender because they got two good forwards with Mauro Manotas and Alberth Elis. The 5-11 175 lb Dylan Nealis can play defensive midfielder, left back, or right back with his versatility. Nealis has helped Georgetown record 11 shutouts so far in 2019. He's also sixth on Georgetown's roster in points with 2 goals, 4 assists, and 8 points.

    Previous Pick: Sofiane Djeffal, M, Oregon State

  9. Montreal Impact: Rodney Michael, F, UC Santa Barbara

    The 5-8 150 lb Rodney Michael had 8 goals, 4 assists, and 20 points as a freshman in 2017. Michael had 7 goals, 3 assists, and 17 points as a sophomore in 2018. Michael has 4 goals, 7 assists, and 15 points so far in 2019. Michael will be a top 10 pick if he gets a Generation Adidas deal for the 2020 MLS Super Draft. Michael grew up playing soccer in Brazil and Spain before enrolling at UC Santa Barbara.

    Previous Pick: Jack Hallahan, F, Michigan

  10. Chicago Fire: Jesus Perez, M, UIC

    The Chicago Fire get the best player on the board at ten. With Mo Adams now on Atlanta United F.C. where he will replace Nagbe, Chicago now looks for a replacement to Mo Adams. Hard to believe both of their 2018 first round picks Jon Bakero and Mo Adams are no longer on the team. Maybe Jesus Perez who led the NCAA with 12 assists in 2018 will be the answer. Perez also has 6 goals, 8 assists, and 20 points so far in 2019. Chicago grabs the local at 10 hoping he pans out.

    Previous Pick: Joe Bell, M, Virginia

  11. Colorado Rapids: Remi Prieur, G, St. Mary's

    With Tim Howard retiring, its time for Colorado to get a successor to Clint Irwing. Colorado honestly could take Remi Prieur, Andrew Thomas, or Elliot Panicco here and regardless of which goalie they drafted, it would be hard to criticize the pick. Prieur has the best resume at the moment of the three goalies which is why Colorado takes him at 11.

    They get the best player on the board and the top senior goalie in this draft at the moment in St. Mary's goalie Remi Prieur. The 6-1 195 lb Remi Prieur had 14 shutouts and an .873 save percentage in 2018. Prieur has 10 shutouts and an .804 save percentage so far in 2019.

    Previous Pick: Andrew Thomas, G, Stanford

  12. San Jose Earthquakes: Kimarni Smith, F, Clemson

    San Jose gets a forward at 12. This team is loaded at midfielder so they get a successor to Chris Wondolowski here. The 6-1 160 lb Kimarni Smith has 13 goals, 5 assists, and 31 points so far in 2019.

    Previous Pick: Jack Maher, D, Indiana

  13. New England Revoultion: Henry Kessler, D, Virginia

    New England gets the best player on their board at 13. The 6-4 185 lb Henry Kessler has helped Virginia record 12 shutouts so far in 2019.

    Previous Pick: Guiseppe Barone, M, Michigan State
