2010 MLL Mock Draft, Vol. 1

3 Duke Blue Devils go in the Top 10 in our first Mock Draft

2010 MLL COLLEGIATE DRAFT

This year’s draft class is very deep with many capable of making the transition from college to the pro’s immediately. Here’s how we see the first 5 rounds of action going down; check back at  bostoncannons.com to read more in depth about all the players and check back each week for updates and insights on everything draft related.

ROUND 1

 1. Chicago – Ned Crotty, A, Duke

Quinzani scores the goals but Crotty is the conductor of the Duke offense. His versatility and passing wizardry is too good to pass up at #1.

Massachusetts native Max Quinzani

2. Chesapeake – Max Quinzani, A, Duke

The Cannons will be disappointed to see local product Quinzani off the board here but his uncanny ability to find the back of the net fills a need for Chesapeake.

3. Boston – Curtis Dickson, A, Delaware

Currently 2nd in the nation in points-per-game, he is also 2nd to Max Quinzani in active men’s goal scoring for his career. If Quinzani is the trophy then the Cannons consider themselves lucky with such a great consolation prize.

Dickson is a serious match up problem and scoring threat

4. Long Island – Ken Clausen, D, Virginia

With the top 3 attackmen off the board Long Island picks for value and takes Clausen, the top defenseman. Clausen is a future super-star in the back, strong and fast, you don’t want to get hit by this guy.

5. Denver – Michael Kimmel, M, Johns Hopkins

Kimmel might just be the best passing midfielder in the country and the Outlaws would welcome him with opens arms. It is easy to envision Kimmel in the Outlaw offense that features 4 of the MLL’s top 15 scoring leaders.

6. Toronto – Cody Jamieson, A, Syracuse

Jamieson makes big plays in big games; he scored the game winner in OT in the National Championship last year.  He’s 5’9” and 213 lbs, he knows how to use his low center of gravity and deceptive speed to the fullest of his ability. The Canadian gets to stay close to home when Toronto picks him.

 ROUND 2

 7. Chicago – Scott Rodgers, G, Notre Dame

Chicago knows that Chesapeake who is without 3rd, 4th, and 5th round picks, covets Rodgers with the 8th pick.  With goalie needs of their own, they preemptively select the top goalie in the country with this selection.

8. Chesapeake – Chris Madalon, G, North Carolina

Rodgers goes first because of his career and reputation, but Madalon has blown away the competition so far this year. No one has seen their draft stock rise as much as him. He is leading the nation in goals-against-average at a gaudy 6.15, which is almost 2 goals less than Rodgers.

 9. Toronto (from Boston) – Brian Carroll, M, Virginia

One of the most efficient shooters in the nation, Carroll brings a scoring punch to Toronto from the midfield position.

10. Denver (from Long Island) – Parker McKee, D, Duke

Kind of surprising to see McKee fall in to this spot and Denver is happy to take him. McKee is the clear #2 defender behind Clausen.

 11. Denver – Kyle Wimer, M, UMBC

Wimer gives the Outlaws yet another offensive weapon to pair with 1st rounder Kimmel, giving them two of the top midfielders in the entire draft.

Godoi (#18) is huge in front of the net

12. Boston (from Toronto) – Diogo Godoi, D, UMass

Godoi gives the Cannons some needed depth at D and inserts some youth into an aging defensive unit.

 ROUND 3

13. Chicago – Ryan Hurley, A, Cornell

At this point the Machine has sured up its goalie situation and added the premiere creator in Crotty at #1 overall. This is a good spot to take a scorer and Hurley, 6’3” and 7th in the nation in goals per game, fits the bill.

Steven Boyle (powder blue) shoots and scores against Syracuse

 14. Boston (from Chesapeake) – Steven Boyle, A, Johns Hopkins

So far they have filled a need at attack in the first round drafting Dickson and drafted for organizational depth in the second with Godoi. Boyle, a smallish but lightening quick attackman from Derry, NH fits perfectly into what Coach Daye envisions for his offense.

15. Toronto (from Boston) – Austin Winter, A, Bucknell

Not wanting to be left out as the draft experiences its second run on attackmen, Toronto tabs Winters (6th in country in assists per game) who’s unselfish style of play could help him see immediate playing time.

16. Long Island – Matt Tierney, D, Syracuse

Having given up their second round pick as part of a trade with Denver, Long Island looks to take the best available player with the 16th pick. That player is Tierney, built like an NFL linebacker, the anchor of perennial power Syracuses defense.

17. Denver – Trever Sipperly, FO Specialist, Notre Dame

Making their 4th pick of the draft already Denver has plenty of depth and uses this pick to improve their woeful faceoff that ranked last in the MLL last year.  Sipperly consistently outshines the tough competition as evidenced by his 58% FO win percentage.

18. Long Island (from Denver from Toronto) – Chris Boland, A, Johns Hopkins

His production has been down this year but he’s got the tools and a career worth of production that necessitate Long Island pull the trigger on him here. When you look back on this draft, Boland as the last pick in Round 3 could be the steal everyone talks about.

 ROUND 4

19. Chicago – James Green, M, Ohio State

Is Cahill heading home to play for the Cannons?

20. Boston (from Chesapeake) – Martin Cahill, M, Delaware

The local prospect (Malden) combines with Rabil to scare opposing defenses.

21. Boston – Andrew Brancaccio, M, Georgetown

Hard shot and size combo make him a good fit for the Cannons here. Surprised he’s still available, they don’t think twice about this one.

22. Long Island – Scott Kocis, M, Georgetown

23. Denver – Dillon Roy, D, Denver

24. Toronto – Ryan Nizolek, D, Virginia

Teammate of Clausen gets overshadowed but can make name for himself at next level. Toronto is getting a real quality defender here.

ROUND 5

25. Chicago – Jason Duboe, M, Harvard

Mid West native goes home.

26. Toronto (from Chesapeake) – Scott Mackenzie, A, Princeton

Barney Ehrmann is a defensive giant

27. Boston – Barney Ehrmann, D, Georgetown

Ehrmann is a physical specimen at 6’6”, 230 lbs. Cannons gladly take him in Round 5.

28. Long Island – Justin Pennington, M, Rutgers

29. Denver – Brian Phipps, G, Maryland

Denver’s depth and solid draft already allows them to take Phipps who some say is the best goalie prospect in the country.

30. Toronto – Max Silberlicht, G, Hobart

The knock on Silberlicht is the competition he’s faced. As the last pick in Round 5 he’s worth the risk, could be a diamond in the rough.

 

These players are likely to get drafted in rounds 6-8 and could make an impact in MLL sooner rather than later.

(listed in no particular order)

Chris Daniello, A, Syracuse

He’s the leading scorer for #2 Cuse. He benefits from opposing defenses concentrating on linemate Jamieson. If he continues this level of play and impresses at the combine, he could make a case for as high as second round consideration.

Timmy Katz, M, Sacred Heart

Sean Delaney,  M, North Carolina

Ari Sussman, A, Dartmouth

Billy Geist, D, Harvard

Bobby Atwell, D, Maryland

Thomas Muldoon, A, Brown

Chris Hogan, M, Penn State

Craig Dowd, A, Georgetown

4th in nation in assists per game.

Rob Engelke, A, Princeton

Cooper Macdonnell, A, Loyola

Charley Dickenson, M, Denver

Sam Barnes, D, Notre Dame

Scott MacKenzie, A, Princeton

6’5” Montana native has stopped growing but his lacrosse skills are just beginning to fully develop.

  1. Irish Mike Says:

    i’d be dissapointed if we don’t get quinzani but thats a pretty solid draft for the Cannons, one to be excited about

  2. Wily Mo Says:

    crotty #1?…interesting. also surprised to see jamieson fall to the last pick in the first round. wow delaney and muldoon not drafted in the first 5 rounds!!! that has got to change. i could see dickenson, barnes, and macdonnell slippin into rounds 4 or 5

  3. Sean Says:

    in the later rounds i think if the cannons drafted chris nixon of georgetown i think he would be a good fit

  4. uva1982 Says:

    Madalon at #8? Stupid. First of all he is a redshirt junior, so not likely declaring for pros. Second, he has started for 1/2 a college season in his entire college career, and he has the best defense in D1 in front of him.

  5. dukefan22 Says:

    The cannons should trade up for quinzani or crotty, by the looks of it the best attackmen they will get is steve boyle who is wicked overrated and honestly, he’s a complete dick. I went to a camp he did and he’s an asshole to be honest

    • quinzani and crotty likely wont be the top 2 picks in the draft, meaning at least one of them will be there for the Cannons taking at #2…If the team is interested in either of them

  7. bmore laxer Says:

    Some of the players listed are in fact juniors… and I am a local baltimore guy and suprised not to see pasterik or harrington from towson anywhere on this list. both are fast with pasterik quickness but is short on size and Harrington brings a great left handed shooting middie at 6’0 210 lbs

  8. marty Says:

    What about Matt Drenan, defenseman @ Hopkins. He covered virtually eveyone on your list… Crotty, Wimer, Daniello, Pasterick, Ryan Young and Juniors Billy Bitter and Jack McBride as well.

    No one had a big day on him this year while he was on them.
