Patrick Mullins MLS Draft Profile

Patrick Mullins, Senior, Forward, Maryland



Mullins made an immediate impact for the Terrapins during the 2010 season by netting 14 points (5G, 4A) and earning ACC Freshman of the Year honors in his first year with the school. He played in 21 games for the Terps, recording his first career goal against Loyola and providing the game-winner versus the No. 2 ranked Connecticut Huskies. Mullins followed up his freshman campaign with a solid sophomore season, registering six goals and three assists in a striking role. He was also named to the All-ACC second team.

Mullins experienced a breakout season in 2012 with a team-leading 17 goals, 10 assists, and 44 total points, all of which exceeded his prior two seasons’ numbers combined. He also led the team in shots (95), shots on goal (40), and game-winning goals (7). Mullins garnered several accolades as well, including NSCAA First Team All-American, College Cup All-Tournament Team, ACC Offensive Player of the Year, All-ACC first team, and MVP of the ACC Championship.


Final Projection:

A versatile player and a dual threat with his head and feet, Mullins will often forego a shooting opportunity in order to feed his teammates. While he can play up top and look to receive balls into space like a true striker, Mullins is capable of mixing things up and positioning himself deeper in the midfield in an effort to link up with fellow attackers. He is just as happy setting up teammates as he is in scoring a goal himself. As a result, Mullins’ unselfishness and balanced game will likely be highly sought after at the next level.
