RSL used the 15th pick to take Collen Warner, a senior midfielder from the University of Portland. Warner, a 5-foot-10 native of Denver, was named to the All-West Coast Conference First Team and to Top Drawer Soccer's All-Season Third Team.

Mathis, in his second go-round with RSL, played 28 games in 2009, scored two goals with seven assists. He played a large role in RSL's march to the 2009 MLS Cup.

The Philadelphia Union selected Oregon State sophomore, and a member of Generation Adidas, Danny Mwanga as the draft's No. 1 pick. The 18-year-old forward was the PAC-10 Player of the Year and one of eight Generation Adidas roster player selected among the first 10 picks.
