The Seattle Sounders selected Cristian with the 16th pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft, but it may not have happened were it not for Cesar. After a Pac-12 Freshman of the Year campaign, Cristian declined an MLS contract through Generation Adidas, which allows professional-ready college players who are not yet eligible for the draft to sign with the league. The MLS SuperDraft format only allows players who have graduated college or have signed with the league to be selected.

The Chicago Red Stars grabbed UCLA Zakiya Bywaters forward with the top pick, while her Florida State counterpart Tiffany McCarty went second overall to the Washington Spirit. Boston College midfielder Kristie Lewis went third overall to FC Kansas City, while BYU defender Lindsi Lisonsbee-Cutshall (Sky Blue FC) and Florida state midfielder Casey Short (Boston Breakers) rounded out the top five picks.
