The Revs have found ways to build up their roster through the MLS Superdraft.
Andrew Farrell was the No. 1 overall pick in 2013.
The team traded up to make sure they were able to draft the Louisville defender.
"It's not to say there weren't any other good players in that combine and in that draft," said Revs GM Mike Burns. "Our feeling was, there was Andrew Farrell and there was everyone else. We were moving up, not to have the number one pick, we were moving up to take Andrew."
