The pick is finally in! With the number seven pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, FC Dallas has selected Furman centerback and member of Generation adidas, Walker Zimmerman.
Dallas was able to snag Zimmerman due to a injury that Zimmerman was carrying going into the MLS Combine. Zimmerman skipped the Combine and saw his draft stock fall.
This is a big value pick though for Dallas. Zimmerman won't count against the salary cap and will be a guy that can compete in the back with the likes of Matt Hedges and George John. He has a high ceiling, and could be a strong player for the future.
It was certainly surprising to see Dallas select a young player like Zimmerman but I will tell you this, he is a big kid with so much potential. He is excellent on set pieces and will do well with this group. This is a shocker as you all may know for Dallas but this is a solid selection that may have just been too good to pass up.
