Red Bulls Take Wake Forest's Chris Duvall at 22

Speedy right back falls to the Red Bulls in the second round.

With the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, the Red Bulls took right back Chris Duvall from Wake Forest.

If the above is any indication, he looks like he's fast, good in the tackle and can hit a pretty solid cross.

According to

Duvall bombs up and down the sideline as necessary, and can boost the attack either by initiating the counter off a takeaway or getting forward himself. Though his defending's improved, he's still a work in progress, and will have to adapt tactically to the game at the MLS level, as well as to the new speed of play. By all accounts, however, Duvall is coachable and adaptable, and should be able to prepare himself for what's to come.

The chatter on Twitter is that the Red Bulls' brass have had their eye on Duvall for awhile.
