A draft after the draft.

Who is feeling draft-y today? Yeah, there are a lot of them going on this week with the Expansion Draft today, followed by the MLS Waiver Draft at 3:30pm CT.

Yes, two drafts in one day.

Major League Soccer will conduct a Waiver Draft for players whose contract options were not picked up and who are not eligible for the Re-Entry Process.

A list of players eligible for the Waiver Draft will be announced around 4 pm ET on Wednesday, and the draft will be conducted via conference call at 4:30 pm ET. Results will be posted on immediately afterward. Players not selected will be available to any team on a first-come, first-served basis.

2014 Waiver Draft - Draft Selection Order

1. Montreal Impact
2. San Jose Earthquakes
3. Colorado Rapids
4. Chicago Fire
5. Houston Dynamo
6. Toronto FC
7. Philadelphia Union
8. Portland Timbers
9. Sporting Kansas City
10. Vancouver Whitecaps
11. Columbus Crew SC
12. FC Dallas
13. Real Salt Lake
14. D.C. United
15. New York Red Bulls
16. Seattle Sounders
17. New England Revolution
18. LA Galaxy
19. New York City FC
20. Orlando City

Several notable MLS picks in previous years, particularly 2014 MLS MVP finalist and Dallas-native Lee Nguyen in 2012 (I bet Vancouver is kicking themselves for getting rid of him now) and Real Salt Lake mainstay Ned Grabavoy in 2009, have been acquired via Waiver Draft.

The first round of the Re-Entry Draft is also planned for this week as well on Friday. Fun!
