FC Kansas City’s picks in the 2017 NWSL Draft

Round 1 - (5th) - Christina Gibbons – M/D – Duke - Great pick for FC Kansas City, can play across the backline and mid.

Round 2 - (13th) - Toni Payne - M/F - Duke - An attacking mid to help FCKC’s attack

Round 2 - (17th) - Stephanie Ribeiro - F/M - University of Connecticut - A forward with a lot of flair in the attack.

Note: Gibbons, Payne and Ribeiro all played together on the U23’s. Gibbons and Payne was on U23 team with Shea Groom last year. Lot’s of familiarity for the early draft picks.

Round 3 - (25th) - Alexis Shaffer - MF - Virginia - Talented attacker.

Round 4 - (35th)- Rashida Beal - D - Minnesota - Tenacious, tough defender.

Come back later and we will have some interviews and more info on the draft.
