72nd Pick: Wes Feighner (NR)
DF 5-10 175 4/3/1990

Grade: I'm not one who should doubt Sigi Schmid but the 2012 Seatle Sounders draft leaves a lot of question. Andrew Duran although regarded as a prospect during high school he had a number of injuries throughout his NCAA career. Babayele Sodade is a forward with a lot of upside talent especially his size 6'2/195 but wasn't regarded someone who be drafted prior to the draft. In the supplemental draft, Englishman Jason Banton was the most high profile pick who showed some potential during the 2012 combine but is very raw and its unsure if the Sounders will give him time to develop as an international signing. Well the other three picks were natives to the West Coast and did not sure much promise of being a pro during their college careers. D
