The first round of the virtual player selection event will stream live on MLSsoccer.com, the MLS App, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. In addition, fans can follow every pick as it happens with MLSsoccer.com's MLS SuperDraft tracker.
San Jose currently has six players on its roster that the team originally acquired in the MLS SuperDraft: Shea Salinas (2008), Jackson Yueill (2017), Paul Marie (2018), Siad Haji (2019), Tanner Beason (2020) and Jack Skahan (2020).
MLS SuperDraft 2021 presented by adidas will consist of three rounds of player selection. Following Austin FC's opening pick in each round, clubs will make their selections in reverse order of the 2020 regular season standings, taking into account postseason performance in the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs. Any club that received a fourth-round pick via trade will have a compensatory pick at the conclusion of the third round.
Players eligible for selection in MLS SuperDraft 2021 presented by adidas include college seniors, Generation adidas players, and players that have waived their college eligibility by signing to play in a domestic professional league. The list of players eligible for selection will be made available in the days leading up to the draft.
Following MLS SuperDraft, Generation adidas players and select additional draftees will join their MLS clubs for the 2021 preseason, while others may continue to compete for their colleges before reporting to their MLS clubs in late May.
