THE NWSL draft kicks off this morning and FC Kansas City does not have a first round pick. Vlatko Andonovski and Huw Williams have picked some great players in the 2nd and 3rd rounds previously and will be trying to replicate previous years success.

Needs are depth at defense and possible attacking midfielders. See preview 1 for more detail.

LIVESTREAM

16th pick FC Kansas City takes Katie Bowen, a good New Zealand midfielder from UNC but may miss a lot of time with national team if she even plays this year.

10:15 Orlando took Sam Witteman, a great pick

10:06 Houston takes Janine Beckie with the 8th pick, That would have been FC Kansas City's but they turned that pick into Sydney Leroux and Tiffany McCarty.

Portland is killing the draft early, great moves.

Updates: No surprise Sonnet goes first.
