Major League Soccer 2012 Draft live blog - 1st round completed

Draft logo

OK, people have asked for it so I will be posting all the draft picks from today's Major League Soccer draft. The action already has started with the Portland Timbers trading Kenny Cooper to the New York Red Bulls reportedly for NYRB's 2013 1st round draft pick and a chunk of allocation money (the MLS slush fund). So begins the day, if you have access to a TV the draft will be live on ESPN2, or you can watch it online if you have access to ESPN3.com.

There will be just 4 minutes between picks so this should move rather quickly today.
