Colorado Drafts Tony Cascio

The Rapids only had one pick in today's two round Superdraft, their first pick at #14 (The second was traded for Quincy Amarikwa). They used it on UConn midfielder/forward Tony Cascio. He's a senior who played for 4 years with those other Huskies (go Washington!) and last year he was a first team All-American and the Big East offensive player of the year. He is was also a 2-time All Big East selection.

Reports are that he can also play defense, but he's a natural winger which is what we need the most. With Jamie Smith out until probably midyear Cascio will have a shot at a starting spot right away.

Tuesday is the 4-round Supplemental Draft but Colorado doesn't pick until the 3rd round. Their 1st and 2nd round picks were traded in the Anthony Wallace and Joseph Nane trades.
