The U-20s continue to struggle in Jamaica.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The weekend is over and now it is time to get back to things here as we are at the week of the SuperDraft! More on that later today but first lets get into some morning links.

// FC Dallas //

Clavijo surprised by Hedges not earning a call | Dallas Morning News

As you'd expect, Fernando Clavijo was just as surprised as all of us were on Friday when Matt Hedges didn't receive an USMNT call.

Pareja takes pride in the Draft | FCDallas.com

Given the club's track record over the years and Oscar Pareja's personal track record in the draft, we should feel damn confident in whomever they pick on Thursday.

SuperDraft Preview for FC Dallas | MLSSoccer.com

Plenty of decent notes on the club and where things stand going into Thursday's draft.

// MLS //

U-20s fall to Panama 1-0 | MLSSoccer.com

After drawing Guatemala in the first match, the US has now put themselves in a big hole after losing to Panama.

Day 2 of the Combine saw late arrivals and NYCFC considering trading the pick | MLSSoccer.com

Don't be shocked if this draft sees plenty of deals in the first round like last year. I'd be a bit surprised though if anyone in the top 3 traded down or up in this draft though.

Man City do a limited hangout on the Lampard situation | Hudson River Blue

Hopefully this week we can finally ignore all of the Frank Lampard situation.

Klejstan could return to MLS | ESPNFC.com

Even though he is doing well in Belgium, seeing Sacha Klejstan return stateside isn't a bad thing. My big question will be, does he earn DP level money?

Toronto has inside track on Altidore signing | ESPNFC.com

Another interesting piece here. Note at the bottom of this article how it talks about MLS wanting to use the allocation order for this signing unlike how they did with the last couple big USMNT players returning to MLS.

Mock Draft 2.0 | Top Drawer Soccer

More mock drafts on the way I'm betting this week, though I do like their guess at FCD's pick.

New MLS CBA will likely change the Homegrown rule | Short Corners

Definitely some interesting thought on the CBA, but it is also a note that I'm not entirely sure will really change anything big at the moment.

Alright, that is all that I have for now, what do you have going on today?
