Noted college soccer guru Joe Mauceri over at Pro Player Pipeline ranked Farfan the 3rd best midfielder available for the 2011 MLS SuperDraft. See his comments on Farfan’s Combine performance below or at the site linked above.

Michael Farfan (UNC) very active in the attack including initiating an attack where Bruin got behind the defense.  Took a shot early when McCarthy set him up; from 1/10/11 (adequate), disappeared for much of the half, occasionally popping up to get involved. ; From 1/8/11 (adequate), was involved early but seemed to fade out as the match continued.  He had a shot that was blocked by Warshaw.  He combined with Plata to get behind the defense, but the GK got to the Plata pass.  Farfan needs to take more responsibility for the play.
