The Waterdogs' roster might have the fewest holes of any in the league. The 2021 regular season champs essentially add the second overall pick, Michael Sowers, who missed all but two games in 2021.

The Waterdogs won't pick until late in the second round (14th overall) on May 10th. Here are a couple areas they may be looking to improve in:

Midfield depth

Head coach Andy Copelan dresses more midfielders than any coach in the league. Versatility, depth, and youth between the arcs is key.

Backup goalie

Consummate pro Charlie Cipriano retired this offseason. Who backs up Dillon Ward?

This year's goalie class is deep. Owen McElroy (Georgetown) ranks 9th on Paul Carcaterra's Big Board. Brett Dobson (St. Bonaventure) -- who will play with Ward for Team Canada in Birmingham, Alabama this summer -- would be a locker room fit.
