2014 MLS SuperDraft Profiles: Steve Neumann

Georgetown Athletics

The Georgetown product could be a good fit in the attacking side of things for FC Dallas.

Holding the number five overall pick in next month's MLS SuperDraft, FC Dallas has plenty of options in front of them. Today we take a look at another prospect that could have signed with the league in 2013 as a Generation adidas player, but instead opted to come back for glory in his senior season.

We're talking about Georgetown senior forward/midfielder Steve Neumann.

Neumann is your typical number nine on the field. In 2013, he scored 10 goals and added six assist in 21 starts for the Hoyas. He finished his college career with 41 goals and 34 assists. In other words, the kid averaged a little over 10 goals a season with Georgetown.

That kind of production gets attention as TopDrawerSoccer.com has him at number 2 right now on their board. Others are seeing him a little further down the pipe however. Which in a way means he could land perfectly at number five if all things fall into place.


(Excuse the cheesy music in the background on this video...)

Some do question whether or not his game can translate well to the pro-level. Hence the reason why some are projecting him to not be a top-10 pick.

The draft is a funny thing as we all know it. Finding true offensive talent is always difficult when you really boil things down. But to me, this kid can get it done on any level. I've seen him play numerous times over the last couple of years with Georgetown and each time I come away impressed with his work rate and hunger to find a goal. I see him as a guy that can play up front with someone like Blas Perez or even find his way to the wings.

At the very least, if FCD picks this guy we can have an endless supply of Neumann(Newman)-related jokes ready.
