Ives Galarcep checks in with his Mock Draft today.  Most interesting to Revs fans are a couple of notes regarding New England’s efforts to move up.

2. Toronto FC- Omar Gonzalez, D, Maryland

The list of teams interested in moving up to this pick continues to grow because there are a handful of teams eager to grab Gonzalez.

Sources tell me offers have already been made and Los Angeles, FC Dallas, D.C. United and New England have all been identified as teams interested in moving up.

Gonzalez to the Revs is a long shot – especially if LA, Dallas, and DC are interested.  LA picks 3rd and would only have to move up one spot to make sure they get Gonzalez.  Dallas picks 5th and 11th and DC United picks 6th and 7th.  The Revs are outgunned, unless Toronto just wants to sell the pick to whichever team is willing to give them the most allocation money.
