2012 MLB Draft Big Board 81-100

Two current NFL players in the NFC South were once two of the top 100 baseball prospects on DraftNasty’s 2012 MLB Draft Big Board. Hayden Hurst has since gone on to become a starter for the Atlanta Falcons and former FSU quarterback Jameis Winston now plays for the New Orleans Saints.
