As the draft ends, the unnamed player from the Washington Spirit being traded to OL Reign gets announced: it’s Emily Sonnett!

That concludes the 2023 NWSL Draft. A lot of big changes happened early on today and before the draft but the movement of Diana Ordonez and Emily Sonnett made the draft all the more thrilling. Many players who are undrafted today will probably make their marks in the NWSL this upcoming season so we look forward to seeing which of these rookies takes their chance and cements a spot this season. Good luck to all the players, drafted or otherwise!
