- Ben Stitz M (Penn — Second Round)

In recent years, Wayne Rooney was the most high-profile signing for the club by a wide margin. DC United brought him back as a head coach on July 12. Over his two seasons as a player with the team, Rooney scored 23 goals and notched 15 assists.
Below are the players selected in the first round over the last few years by the club.
