Not sure if this draft is as good as was being predicted 12 months ago. Heard Rendell and others saying last week that they believed it drops away badly after the first 12 or so. Particularly poor for kpp’s they felt.
Just remember it's basically a lack of games that means the guys who are yet to shine don't get found as easily

Clayton Oliver was originally not picked to play for Victoria in under 18s and only got a chance when all the best mids were playing in the carnival(50 odd kids for 2 Melbourne sides),and starred when he got the chance.
Their were 2 thoughts in his games that he starred.
1 thought was ,well he was playing in a much much lower standard under 18s with all the best mids and players not there so would probably go mid teens somewhere.
2 thoughts were forget how and whom he played,he's a big boy whom could hurt a club not picking him .
As it turned out Melbourne picked him due to what he could become .
If those carnival games didn't happen,Oliver was a huge chance to not get drafted at all,that's how important actually playing is and our current Young AFL listed guys and most under19s have hardly played.
We have many young players that all though not anywhere near regulars have played same AFL games as VFL,
Guys like DOw, Ralphsmith have played 4 AFL games and around 4-5 ish VFL games.

Pick 10 + CCJ to GWS in return for pick 4.

Pick 4 then used on Ben Hobbs

Pick 16 used on Jye Amiss

Pick 30 to Geelong for Narkle

Wishful thinking?

it is a good hand with the addition that CCJ could be used to increase our picks or order

I think we only need 4 selections in the draft. we should be aiming to manoeuvre a pick inside the top 10 or a future year first rounder, with the use of CCJ, 17; 27; 29

Confident with our track record we can identify reasonable talent with pick 42 and 47.
