In the first round of the draft’s 2014 edition, Chicago selected Vanessa DiBernardo and U.S. international Julie Johnston. While DiBernardo started 19 of her 23 appearances with the Red Stars this past season, Johnston was in the first eleven for all of her 21 matches and took home NWSL Rookie of the Year honors. In 2013, midfielder Zakiya Bywaters went to Chicago via the first overall pick. The Red Stars are the only NWSL club to have signed all of their college draft selections in the previous two seasons. Those selections include Rachel Quon, Taylor Vancil, Jen Hoy and Hayley Brock.
