The last day of the 2017 MLB Draft is about to begin. Maryland has two players off the board already: Kevin Smith went to the Blue Jays in the fourth round, while Brian Shaffer was drafted by the Diamondbacks in the sixth round.

On Monday, Greg Goldstein looked at the prospects of Smith, Shaffer and Marty Costes before the draft. Earlier today, he went in-depth on Maryland’s other draft hopefuls. It’s almost impossible to predict the last 30 rounds, but several Terps should be off the board before they’re over.

We’ll update this space as names get called throughout the day.

Bonus: Randy Bednar, a 2017 OF/LHP commit, is the Braves’ 27th-round selection (800th overall). He’ll have to decide whether he plays in college or signs with Atlanta.

Catcher commit Justin Vought was taken seven picks ahead of Selmer, at No. 930 overall by the Kansas City Royals.

Right-handed pitcher Mark DiLuia rounds out the drafted Maryland pledges, going in the 38th round to the Minnesota Twins.
