The 2012 MLB draft wraps up today with the final 25 rounds. Two WSU players were drafted yesterday and a couple more could hear their names called today.

Taylor Ard and Derek Jones were selected yesterday, which Jeff covered here and here. WSU athletics posted videos of Ard and Jones discussing being drafted. Jones has a very cool line near the end about wanting to become a millionaire so he can give back to WSU just like the alums before him gave back
