Orlando crashed out of their playoffs, and so today released all the players that won't be making the trip up to MLS w/ them: http://www.orlandocitysc.com/news/?article_id=2041

They list 4 midfielders and 4 defenders. They also name some players they're negotiating with: a forward (Luke Boden), another two midfielders (Harrison Heath & Adama Mbengue). So in the expansion/college draft they're probably looking for some GKs and some more forwards.

Also, if my count is right they too have a lot of foreign players: Kaka, Ceren, Molino, Estrela, Ramos, Heath and Mbengue with three US players. With both NYCFC and Orlando using a lot of their spots, my guess is that MLS teams will counter by protecting their American players first while gambling that NYCFC and Orlando won't have the spots to pick up any unprotected foreign players.

Small correction, Boden is a defender. So they actually haven't signed any forwards yet. Molina and Mbengue have been in the States awhile, they might have their green cards already.
