2014 MLB Mock Draft: Predicting the Top 10 Picks of Day 2

While the first day of the MLB draft generally garners the bulk of the publicity, there is still plenty of talent to be had from Rounds 3 to 40.

The second day of the draft will kick off with the third round, starting at pick No. 75, and while the "can't miss" prospects may be gone, there has been plenty of talent plucked from the third round over the years.

A total of five Hall of Famers have been taken in the third round, including Bert Blyleven (1969), Dennis Eckersley (1972), Gary Carter (1972), Eddie Murray (1973) and Tony Gwynn (1981).

Among other retired players, David Cone, Jimmy Key, Ray Lankford, Marquis Grissom, Tim Salmon and John Olerud were also selected in the third round of their respective classes.

Looking at the active field of players, A.J. Pierzynski, Bronson Arroyo, Justin Morneau, Grady Sizemore, Curtis Granderson, Adam Lind, Ian Desmond, Brett Gardner, Jonathan Lucroy, Craig Kimbrel, Kyle Seager, Addison Reed and Tony Cingrani all saw their names called in Round 3.
