Welcome to Philadelphia, PA and the 2010 MLS SuperDraft.  We will be here all day to cover the Red Bulls and the draft, both here and on our Twitter Account (#newyorkredbulls).  We will try and update here as often as possible, but will provide a running commentary of sorts on the twitter side.

The Red Bulls entered the day with seven picks (2 1st, 2 2nd, 2 3rd, and 1 4th) but changed that in the early morning today, with the deal after the jump.

12:45 PM: New York  has acquired defender and U.S. Men’s National Team veteran Chris Albright from the New England Revolution in exchange for a 2010 MLS SuperDraft second round pick (31st overall) and third round pick 48th overall). The Red Bulls still hold five picks in today’s SuperDraft; two in the first round (2nd, 14th), one in the second (18th), one in the third (34th) and one in the fourth (50th).  FULL RELEASE

2:21 PM: With the #2 pick, New York selects midfielder Tony Tchani from the University of Virginia.

Here is a short interview with Tony conducted moments after he was drafted.

3:18 PM: With the #14 pick the Red Bulls select Austin Da Luz, midfielder from Wake Forest.

A quick interview to introduce Austin.

3:48 PM: With the #18 pick, New York selects defender Tim Ream from St. Louis U.

4:58 PM: With the #34 pick (2nd pick, 3rd round) the Red Bulls select forward Conor Chinn from U of San Francisco.

5:58 PM: With their last selection of the draft (4th round, #50 overall) New York selects Irving Garcia, M/F out of UC-Irvine.

Thats it for us from the SuperDraft.  We will be getting some more videos that we will be posting in the near future.  Thanks for following along!

    man that’s a lot of picks… i’m totally ok with giving up the 34th and 48th picks for Albright… don’t touch that #2! i want Tchani!!

  2. emilio Says:

    Is it possible that Albright will be traded with the 14th or 18th pick for the 7th pick to get Duka?

  3. Alle Says:

    Interesting move for Albright, but indeed, don’t touch that #2!

  4. emilio Says:

    One thing we can say it looks like the club has a plan and knows what they are doing, Miller and Albright are solid moves to strengthen the back, Miller may be used as a center back, with Johnson and Albright as the fullbacks. At least we arent going after players like Khano Smith.

  5. Alle Says:

    Would’ve been nice to see Mwanga with us, but hopefully we make a decent pick next.

  6. Alle Says:

    Tony Tchanii!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Cindy Says:

    aww very nice words from Austin Da Luz… i think we did good this draft… sad we didn’t get Duka, but now i’d just be glad to get Dave Van den Bergh back!

  8. Matt Says:

    Overall I’m pleased. Nice job with the draft.

  9. Tim F. Says:

    Great draft Red Bulls. Tchani, Da Luz and Garcia are fantastic picks. Don’t know much about Ream or Chinn but hope they do well.

    Albright is a class act; always treats fans well. Couldn’t ask for a better team player.

    Fantastic job Red Bulls!
