Team-by-team look at where top SuperDraft prospects may wind up:

Toronto FC: With apologies to Seattle and its top overall pick, the men from Canada rule this draft. The Reds have a sweet setup in the first round, picking second, fourth and 13th. Trades that sent Ronnie O'Brien to San Jose and Brian McBride's rights to Chicago helped set such a swell stage.

TFC director of soccer Mo Johnston isn't averse to draft-day maneuvers. With two early selections the temptation may be overwhelming to package up one of those picks with some other asset and move into the top spot. (Johnston did something similar in 2006 when he was in charge at New York, packaging the No. 5 overall pick and Jason Hernandez, acquiring the first pick and using it to take Marvell Wynne.)

What if Johnston and manager John Carver keep the picks? Zakuani, Frei, Alston, Cronin, Gonzalez and Stephens all seem to be in play. About the only position TFC is likely to avoid is at playmaker, as Amado Guevara and Dwayne De Rosario have that area covered.
