MLS SuperDraft: Toronto land both their targets and more

Toronto FC went Canadian with their first pick of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, selecting Combine MVP and Boston College standout Kyle Bekker with the No. 3 pick.

Bekker, who projects as a wide midfielder in MLS, had four standout years at BC and has also played at various levels of the Canadian youth national teams. Most recently, he helped guide Canada to a semifinal appearance in the Olympic qualifying tournament, including a victory over the United States.

The Reds held the No. 3 pick after a trade with the Portland Timbers, their highest pick after trading away the No. 1 pick to the New England Revolution for the No. 4 pick, which they subsequently sent to the Vancouver Whitecaps.
