I'd REALLY like to see the Independence do well in this expansion draft. Is there any way to see who is up for grabs?

As far as I can tell it's basically anyone who isn't already on a WPS roster (and isn't American, obviously). As ever, the issue is finding out if the players you want to pick will actually show up to play in the US.

Seeing the improvement some of the English players have made since moving to the US can only have encouraged more of them to want to play in WPS (Aluko's a significantly better player now. Although Asante's still shit). There aren't that many left who'd be worth picking though, besides Williams, unless they're going to go for youth in the hope someone will improve a lot. Striker Lianne Sanderson maybe, midfielder Jill Scott and keeper Rachel Brown might interest some teams.
