Only one player may be selected from each team, three of the league's 13 current teams will not have a player selected.
Teams will be allowed to protect 11 players from their 28-man rosters. Generation adidas players are automatically protected, though players who are graduated from the program to the senior roster at the end of the 2007 season are not.
Each team may only leave one senior international player unprotected. Players are considered SIs here based on their age for the 2008 season, not the 2007 season.
