Revolution Pass in Chivas USA Dispersal Draft

MLS held the Dispersal Draft on Wednesday night in an effort to fairly distribute members of the folded club's roster. The New England Revolution held the fifth pick, and with the cupboard a little bare, predicting the Revs' move wasn't the easiest of tasks.

As it turns out, the effort was totally futile. New England passed.

The move is somewhat surprising, as there was still some talent left on the board at the fifth pick. When SB Nation held a mock dispersal draft, the Revs were expected to take versatile defender Donny Toia; Toia remained available at number five in the real draft.

However, also available were promising forward Kristopher Tyrpak and homegrown products Caleb Calvert and Marky Delgado. Delgado, in particular, seems to have a bright future ahead of him, and despite considerable depth at the position, he's the type of young attacking talent that they normally seem very happy to examine more closely. Instead, Delgado fell all the way to number 14 and was the last player selected.

Predictably, Dan Kennedy was first off the board, with FC Dallas grabbing him right off the bat.

The full results are below:

  1. FC Dallas - Dan Kennedy
  2. New York City FC - Matthew Dunn
  3. Sporting Kansas City - Pass
  4. D.C. United - Thomas McNamara

  8. Colorado Rapids - Caleb Calvert
  9. San Jose Earthquakes - Kristopher Tyrpak
  10. Real Salt Lake - Pass
  11. Houston Dynamo - Pass
  12. Portland Timbers - Pass
  13. Chicago Fire - Pass
  14. Toronto FC - Marco Delgado
  15. Columbus Crew SC - Pass
  16. LA Galaxy - Pass
  17. Philadelphia Union - Pass
  18. New York Red Bulls - Pass
  19. Seattle Sounders FC - Pass
  20. Vancouver Whitecaps FC - Pass
