Camara picked at 46 by San Jose

Interesting since he will be an international.  I’ve never seen him play but with his size it’s easy to see potential... I could easily see him signing in CPL this season and SJ retaining his rights for a potential MLS move if he develops.

Wow..Vancouver passes on Comsia and goes with CB McDonough

Couldn't they have signed him prior to a homegrown? I think they fact the didnt jump on him in the past meant they weren't going to be interested. Still a bummer to drop so low when we hoped he'd creep into the first round. 

What a great feeling it is to know that worst case with these kids the MLS loss is the CPLs gain and in that scenario they will hopefully be motivated to prove doubters wrong.

Exactly like Didic a few years back, it was only a lucky break that got him signed on and into the SKC system.  These CDN guys will have another 7 teams that will look long and hard at them coming out of NCAA.  Comsia wont HAVE to sign a shitty USL-2 deal just to keep playing.

Don’t think the money will be all that much more in the CPL , however if the league grows then the potential is there for players to make more money in the CPL . In the first few years don’t see much of a difference in pay from a few of the contacts I have spoken to conected to the CPL. However, if a player is going to make around the same money in the USL as he may make in the CPL it would make sense to stay home and play in Canada.
