New England Revolution Sign Three Draft Picks

Posted In News - By Kevin McCauley On Friday, March 4th, 2011 With 0 Comments

While the New England Revolution roster might be lacking the kind of quality necessary to be a true contender, they certainly aren’t lacking in depth. Where they lack star power, they make up for it by having a large number and large variety of serviceable players, and they added to that depth yesterday by signing three draft picks. Ryan Kinne, Alan Koger, and Andrew Sousa all inked deals to play for the Revs in 2011.

Kinne is probably the best well known of the bunch. He was a prolific college player at Monmouth, but his lack of size and his small-school pedigree led him to fall to the 42nd overall pick in the MLS SuperDraft. Kinne has been a striker throughout his amateur career, but based on this preseason, he appears to be more likely to see playing time on the right wing than up top for the Revs.

Koger is a big, strong target forward out of William and Mary, selected with the 54th overall pick, and Sousa, a midfielder, is a bit of a surprise signing. Few would have guessed the 42nd overall pick in the Supplimental Draft had much chance of winning a professional contract, but the camp invitee apparently did enough to convince the coaching staff he was worthy of a roster spot.
