Impact select ____ with first overall pick?

Per: Pépé, Montreal Impact

Interested in the who the Impact could select number one overall in tomorrow's MLS SuperDraft?

Click "Read More" for details on the top six college players.
I gathered all information below from

- Forward Darren Mattocks (University of Akron)
Mattocks is very fast and he likes to get behind defenders with his speed and timely runs. He has a good work ethic and is able to finish well. He has the ability to get on the end of crosses with his quickness inside the box.
- Midfielder Nick Deleon (University of Louisville)
He is a dynamic winger that likes to run at defenders with his speed and dribbling abilities. He is also able to come inside with a clever run. He links up well with the forwards in good combination play.
- Midfielder Kelyn Rowe (UCLA)
He is dynamic and very explosive. He likes to find pockets between the defense and midfield. He likes to combine with the forwards and release the wingers with quality passes. He is very good in tight spaces. His quality and decision making is very good.
- Midfielder Luis Silva (UC Santa Barbara)
He is able to support the attack and score goals from midfield. He has very good dribbling abilities and is capable of playing the final pass. His quality and decision making is very good.
- Defender Matt Hedges (University of North Carolina)
He is a solid defender with good feet and good speed. His positioning and defensive capabilities are very good. He is solid in the air and in a one on one situation.
- Defender Andrew Wenger (Duke University)
He is a versatile player that has had success playing as a center back and as a forward. He is very athletic and strong technically. He is a competitor and has a very good soccer mind.

From what I have heard and read, Mattocks is the couscous top pick. Do you agree or disagree? The first round of the draft will be covered LIVE on ESPN2 starting at 12pm ET.
