Oscar Pareja definitely showed his hand in the final rounds of the MLS Draft today as he went big.  Two big defenders that is.  In the third round FC Dallas drafted 6'3 defender Nicholas Walker while in the 4th round they took young 6'4 defender Ronny Santos Mendoza.  The two picks should give FCD plenty of depth in the defense for the coming future.

Nicholas Walker heads to Dallas as one of the most decorated Fairleigh Dickinson college players in their history.  The Northeast Conference defender of the year also played PDL with the Michigan Bucks.  He is a monster physical presence and his size makes him almost unbeatable in he air.  Not the most technical player he relies on speed and strength to roam the backline.

Ronny Santos Mendoza might end up being talked about as one of the steals of the entire draft.  A youngster out of Ecuador, Mendoza was developed in the Manta FC system.  The 6'4 defender also starred with the Ecuador Under 20 National Team at the recent South American Championships.  His upside is tremendous and a great pick from FC Dallas.
