The 2017 NWSL College Draft happened earlier today. It was an exciting event with many talented players, which included some surprises along the way. 40 college seniors out of almost 200 were selected to play throughout the 10 teams in the National Women's Soccer League. An incredible feat in itself, but these women aren't quite playing with the big dogs yet. Some of these players will end up being stars for their teams, maybe even for the U.S. Women's National Team while others may fall short and not even see opening day.
