Foxboro, Massachusetts - The 2017 Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft was held today at Toby Keith's in Foxboro, MA in conjunction with NCAA Championship Weekend. The Charlotte Hounds had the 3rd overall pick and entered the Draft with a few key spots to fill, most importantly an attackman who could "quarterback" the offense. The Florida Launch got the ball rolling by selecting Dylan Molloy (A - Brown) with the first overall pick. The Boston Cannons followed by selecting Sergio Perkovic (M - Notre Dame) with the second pick. Hounds GM Mike Cerino and Head Coach Jim Stagnitta jumped at the opportunity to select
Matt Rambo with the third pick. Rambo recently became the all-time leading scorer at the University of Maryland and is a frontrunner for The Tewaaraton Award, given annually to the most outstanding American college lacrosse player.
In the second round, Charlotte selected
Jack Adams (SSDM - Towson) with the 15th pick. Adams, at 6'3", 210 pounds, was seen by many to be the most physical and dominant defensive midfielder in the Draft.
