Draft picks make the 2014 roster.

FC Dallas has announced the signings of 2014 SuperDraft picks Tesho Akindele and Nicholas Walker.

Akindele was the club's first round pick, the sixth overall, from the Colorado School of Mines. He was the school's all-time goals leader with 76 goals scored. He ranked second in the nation in goals scored in 2012 with 22 and was named a First Team NSCAA All-American and the 2012 RMAC Offensive Player of the Year for his efforts. Also an NSCAA First Team All-American and the RMAC Freshman of the Year in 2010, Akindele was the first player in the history of his school's conference to score three consecutive hat tricks.

Walker was drafted in the third round of the SuperDraft out of Fairleigh Dickinson. The 24-year-old center back was also named 2013 Northeast Conference Defender of the Year as a senior. Walker started 69 of the 71 games he played as a four-year starter for the Knights. He finished his collegiate career with four goals.
