At this point in the draft, most of the most highly-touted and refined players have come off of the board, leaving us with more long-term projects than big-time prospects.
In an effort to keep you from having to click through 30-plus slides by the time the draft concludes, we'll switch from individual profiles of each pick to grouping some of them together on one slide.
That said, we'll still take a deeper look at any noteworthy players the Cubs select.
Round 6, Pick 169: RHP Dylan Cease, Milton (Ga.) HS
A preseason first team All-American, ranked No. 77 by Baseball America, Cease fell due to an elbow injury and a strong college commitment to Vanderbilt University, which has become a factory for producing quality major league arms (Sonny Gray, Mike Minor and David Price being some of the more recent Commodores to find success in the big leagues). The Cubs may have to go significantly over slot to get Cease signed.
Notable Cubs sixth round picks: Sean Marshall (2003) and Jamie Moyer (1984)
Round 7, Pick 199: RHP James Norwood, Saint Louis University
Ranked No. 79 by Baseball America, Norwood has a plus mid-90s fastball but lacks the secondary stuff and arm strength to determine if his future lies in the rotation as a No. 3/No. 4 starter or out of the bullpen.
Notable Cubs seventh round picks: Steve Clevenger (2006) and Matt Franco (1987)
Round 8, Pick 229: LHP Tommy Thorpe, University of Oregon
Not ranked by Baseball America, Thorpe's best pitch is a mid-80s changeup, MLB.com's Jim Callis noted on the website's draft broadcast. Has a chance to develop into a back-of-the-rotation starter.
Notable Cubs eighth round picks: Mike Krukow (1973), Steve Trachsel (1991) and Dontrelle Willis (2000)
Round 9, Pick 259: RHP James Farris, University of Arizona
Another unranked college pitcher, Farris was originally a 15th round selection by Houston in the 2013 draft but did not sign. A senior, he throws strikes and has shown the ability to keep batters off-balance.
Notable Cubs ninth round picks: Craig Lefferts (1980), Jon Lieber (1991) and Kevin Tapani (1985)
Round 10, Pick 289: RHP Ryan Williams, East Carolina University
Chicago's third consecutive unranked college senior, Ryan Williams is yet another potential back-end starter who could prove to be nothing more than organizational depth.
Notable Cubs 10th round picks: Sam Fuld (2004) and Casey McGehee (2003)
