The Independence won't pick until the second round, but some really big names will go to other teams in the first round. You'll particularly want to remember North Carolina midfielder Tobin Heath, who has already played with the U.S. national team and is expected to be the first overall pick.

So join me for live coverage throughout the morning and early afternoon.
