The wings of FC Dallas are thin after a couple players were let go in December.

Can you believe the 2015 MLS SuperDraft is just days away at this point? Yesterday the league announced that they locked up eight college seniors to contracts with more likely on the way.

Today we will continue our look at the top talent in the draft the FC Dallas could go after with the 19th pick. We've looked at defenders both center backs and fullbacks, center midfielders and now we will look at the top flank/wingers in the draft. While the need for a winger is there, the talent in this department is a little thin.

Connor Hallsily (California) - While some may say he isn't a true winger, his talents certainly rest on the wings. After all he had eight goals and 11 assists this past season.

James Rogers (New Mexico) - Rogers was a fairly consistent starter and player for the Lobos. He's a right winger by nature but has a decent left foot as well. He had a relatively down year (four goals) after scoring seven and eight goals in the previous two seasons.

Akeil Barrett (Tulsa) -  A fairly versatile Jamaican player that can go up top or out wide. He has good pace. In two seasons at Tulsa he had 14 goals and 12 assists.

Robbie Lovejoy (UNC) - I'm a tad worried of this player simply because he had a season-long injury in 2013 that gave him a redshirt senior season in 2014. He did however have five goals and eight assists in 2014. A good Combine will certainly go a long way in improving his stock.
