Alright friends, tomorrow is the big day. Time to really see these WPS teams start to take shape. First, you can tune into Fox Soccer Channel tonight from 8 to 10 PM ET and get interviews and announcements preluding the big draft tomorrow.

Second, you can get real time updates on draft selections via twitter. Signing up for Twitter is easy, you basically just give them your name and e-mail address. If you want to recieve text message coverage to your phone, you can do that as well. The draft is held at 10:30 AM ET, and you can get the full scoop on how to follow at WPS’s website.

Third, I’ve come across a couple mock drafts and have shared them below. These are the simplified lists and going to the actual article will give you way more analysis, justifications, and alternative draftee options.
