Yesterday we took a look at the best defenders and goalkeepers available in the draft. Today, we look at the top midfielders.

1. Jack Harrison

Harrison, a Generation Adidas signing out of Wake Forest, can play as an attacking midfielder in the center or as an outside midfielder on the wings. The Englishmen is regarded as the best offensive player in the draft possibly going number two overall.

2. Julian Buescher

The center mid out of Syracuse is another Generation Adidas signing. The German scored eight goals and notched 11 assists this past season.

3. Omar Holness

The Jamaican Generation Adidas signing can play in the middle or on the wings. He played collegiately at North Carolina and already has a Jamaican National Team cap under his belt.

4. Richie Laryea

Another Generation Adidas signing. Another guy out of Akron. The Canadian is versatile and led the Zips in goals with 11 on the season.

5. James Moberg

Moberg is out of Washington and played as a defensive midfielder behind Seattle Sounders' Cristian Roldan while in college. He's versatile and reliable.
