It's the final day of the draft, and there are 30 rounds to go. Buckle up.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the third and final day of the MLB Draft, and this is the place to be for all of your exciting and tantalizing coverage of Rounds 11-40.

We've probably hit the point where even the draft experts will be stumped on what to say about some of these guys, but the show goes on.

So far, 315 players have been selected in the draft. The Phillies have selected ten of those guys.

Here is some reading material for you on yesterday's picks:

Lucas Williams wasn't on any "best of" or "top" lists, but he went 83rd overall

Bailey Falter, the Phillies' fifth rounder, called his drafting a "dream come true"

Tyler Gilbert, sixth rounder, is quite smart

The Phillies were in contact with Luke Leftwich before selecting him in the seventh round

Greg Pickett, drafted in the eighth round, says he has "no idea" what he's going to do yet

We will be tracking the following picks here, so stay tuned to this space for completely ill-informed information and grainy videos.

Round 11, #324 overall - Edgar Cabral, C

The Phillies go J2 to kick off the day by selecting a 5'11" catcher from Mt. San Antonio College (CA). Cabral was selected in the 33rd round by Toronto in 2013. A scouting report from two years ago had Cabral as having quick feet and gap power. He hit .331 this season, with 5 HR and 32 RBI.

Round 12, #354 overall - Skylar Hunter, RHP

Hunter clocks in at 6'1", 185 pounds, and is from The Citadel. He pitched exclusively out of the team's bullpen this year, appearing in 33 games. He was 3-6 with 13 saves, pitching 53 innings. He struck out 59 and walked 29. More about Hunter can be found here.

Round 13, #384 overall - Zach Coppola, CF

Coppola is a prolific base stealer, and from some video, we're gonna go ahead and label him as having 60 speed. John Manuel from BA said that Coppola had a good arm, as well.  He hit .373 with a .475 OBP, and stole 39 bases in 39 attempts. He was invited to pre-draft workouts by the Dodgers, Angels and Royals. Here's the first video available from today's picks, complete with vague rock music:

Round 14, #414 overall - Austin Bossart, C

The Phillies go local with this pick, and take Bossart, a catcher from UPenn, by way of Illinois. He clocked in at No. 368 on Baseball America's Top 500. Bossart hit .358 with a .420 on-base percentage in his senior campaign. He had confirmed workouts with Baltimore, Washington and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is 6'2" and 210 pounds.

Round 15, #444 overall - Dylan Bosheers, SS

Bosheers hit .368/.444/.577 for Tennessee Tech this season. Here, Bosheers talks about being a draft snub in 2014. Tech coach Matt Bragga, take it away:

"He can defend, has soft hands, great hand-eye coordination, good arm, slightly above average speed," Bragga said. "I'm not trading that kid for any player in the country; I think he's the best."
