Lyle Thompson is the consensus top pick to Cannons LC in tonight's Entry Draft.

He doesn’t dodge; he flows through a series of roll backs and hip flips en route to the middle of the field. He doesn’t simply soak checks; he brushes them aside. Don’t reach!

From 2015-18, Lyle buried 36.7% of his unassisted shots. Insanity. His creativity makes him unpredictable, and unpredictable dodgers are impossible to slide to. Can you squeeze a double off this pick? Maybe – but Lyle rejects it. Do you slide to him walking the dog? He’s not a threat from there… right? Psych! He increases his angle by moving the goalie.

Tune in to the Entry Draft tonight at 7:30PM ET on Twitter Spaces. Lisa Redmond will be hosting and all eight head coaches will call in live to make their selections.
