    Top Drawer Soccer released its 2014 MLS Draft Big Board on November 27, ranking NC State's Alex Martinez and Nazmi Albadawi among the nation's top prospects.

    Martinez graded as the 33rd-best MLS prospect according to the web site, landing seventh among Atlantic Coast Conference talent.

    In 2013, Martinez earned an all-conference mention for the second year in a row since transferring from High Point following the 2011 season. The senior tallied eight assists to finish second in the ACC. Martinez's four assists in conference games ranked third.

    Nazmi Albadawi placed 74th on Top Drawer's list after making the All-ACC Second Team in 2013. Albadawi's senior season hinged on a high ankle sprain suffered on October 1. Albadawi returned to the starting lineup on October 25 to lead the Pack to three wins in its last four matches.

    Despite his time missed due to injury, Albadawi ranked eighth in the conference for his nine points in ACC matches, and sixth for his four conference goals.'s 2014 MLS Draft Big Board can be viewed in its entirety HERE.
