With the first pick in the 2019 MLS Mock Draft - FC Cincinnati selects Tajon Buchanan from Syracuse

FC Cincinnati, Pick 1:  


Tajon Buchanan, F, (Syracuse) : Simply put -  Coming into the Superdraft FC Cincinnati has 22 players on the roster,  and only three of them are attackers. They desperately need warm bodies in this department and Buchanon has the added benefits of being a Generation Adidas selection who will fill a domestic player slot. This makes the risk extremely low all around. 


FCC is already maxed out on International spots and it's extremely unlikely that they would favor anyone in the this talent pool to push out a current rostered option. 


Too, there is already a log jam in the backline and midfield. If FCC opts to go for someone who will make an impact this season for better or worse they'll have to place that bet on someone who can play in the final third. 


It is very possible that they go after another first round selection as well given that they have two second round picks to dangle in a trade and much more room on the roster than anyone else in the league.
