PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –- A flurry of activity for the Philadelphia Union at the MLS Super Draft, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show has it all for you!

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch were in attendance at the draft, which was held yesterday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, here in Philadelphia.

The Union made some history, trading their second overall pick for the top pick and top goalkeeper Andre Blake, from University of Connecticut.   Blake is the first goalkeeper ever to be taken first overall in the draft.

They then traded their sixth pick down to the 15th pick and acquired midfielder/forward Pedro Ribeiro from Coastal Carolina.
