2017 MLB Draft: Eight NC State players taken

Who stays and who goes? The three-day, 40-round ordeal that is the Major League Baseball Draft is over, and as the dust settles, there is some roster uncertainty for NC State in the near term. Eight Wolfpack players were drafted, all of whom have eligibility remaining. Joe Dunand is certainly gone, and I’d imagine odds are decent that Evan Mendoza, Josh McLain and Andy Cosgrove...
