    Default Joe Dunand -- Miami Marlins

    Joe Dunand was selected in the second round by the Miami Marlins. He is the first Wolfpack player selected in this year's MLB draft. Congrats to him!

    A lot of the most talented players on the NC State team were underclassmen, not yet eligible for the MLB draft! So far, Dunand is the only NC State player drafted. Round four of the MLB draft will start Wednesday.

    Through the completion of round ten, no other NC State player has been drafted.

    OK, the final day of the MLB draft saw several more Wolfpack players taken:

    Evan Mendoza: St Louis Cardinals, 11th round
    Josh McClain: Los Angeles Dodgers, 14th round
    Andy Cosgrove: Minnesota Twins, 17th round
    Tommy DeJuneas: Cleveland Indians, 26th round
    Brock Deatherage: Pittsburgh Pirates, 29th round
    Cody Beckman: Milwaukee Brewers, 30th round
    Tim Naughton: Baltimore Orioles, 34th round

    So, when the draft ended, a total of eight NC State players were selected. Congrats to all!

    McLain and Deatherage decide not to sign with the teams that drafted them and return to school. Just another reason why the baseball draft model works better than basketball or football. It gives the player so much more power to decide his future.

    Absolutely! Much better system, and very fair to the student-athletes.

    Should be the model applied to all college sports with active pro leagues.
