        also, what do you think of TAC teams dropping players for going to a private school?

        knowing the aps system well and how forceful those aps schools are in making sure they kids play every week I don't agree with any dropping of aps players from tac cup teams. but that's just me.

        I'd imagine those non aps schools would operate similarly and have similar expectations of their footballers so I would be fairly empathetic in the most part for the private school boys.

      Cheers, great info.

      Where do you think he would have been drafted if available? Most say he was still a first rounder despite his 2012 knee-reco. Without it could he have gone top 10?

        No club would have taken Perris 1st round and probably not inside the 2nd round either.

        3rd round onward is more where he most likely would have been picked up otherwise.

        In saying that though I regard Perris a top 25 talent from the recent draft so naturally it's a great win for Sydney getting that level quality talent as a rookie.

        Hi theta.
        I do know bits and pieces about Perris. Great get for Sydney as a rookie!
        He's an excellent endurance running midfielder who runs both ways and has a nice balanced inside/outside game

        with that inside game particularly impressive despite his smaller body with his hardness.
        Noted leader and works hard at his game.
        Will be interesting to see if Sydney have a spot in that loaded midfield down the road for him.

      Really enjoy and appreciate your efforts with your phantom drafting threads. Good descriptions and helps gain an insight on the kids, you got 2 of the Dogs draft choices correct with Bontempelli and Fuller which was pretty awesome. Was wondering how you'd rate our drafting this year and which team you think did the best in it. Thanks mate.
      1. Knightmare
        Knightmare
        Bontempelli is a risk early and probably wouldn't have been my choice that early.

        Fuller I like as a fit mid draft and I can see him getting games so in a shallow draft that's a relative win.

        Honeychurch late draft is not a bad selection and has done some nice things when healthy this year but it's probably not an ideal list fit with so many inside types already and Hrovat as a small who can do the same things.

        If I had to grade the Dogs draft I'd give a C. It's a pass mark but not the strongest overall.

        I'd class St Kilda as the big winner. Billings, Dunstan and Acres can all make it and become major parts to their future core.

        After the rookie draft if I find the time I'll post a review on the offseason winners/losers.

        Thanks man, yeah I wasn't sure about Bontempelli but looking at his video I can see why we got him looks like an interesting player and will be good to see how it unfolds for us.

        4. Daniher (Only ranked lower because he's less of a physical presence. He's the tallest of the lot and possibly the prettiest mark with the way he takes those contested marks making it hard to rate him so low in this category)

        Most potential
        1. Daniher (Tallest. Best mover. If he works out his set shot goalkicking, gets stronger and stays healthy and he can become the best of the lot. Just a lot of ifs)

        Knightmare
        2. Boyd (Next biggest of the lot)
        3. Patton (Similar to Boyd. Slightly better mover but not as tall or as strong a mark - not by much though)
        4. Hogan (Shortest of the lot which isn't hard when you're being compared to 6'5+ giants. Being shorter and the most developed may not have as far to develop but he's still going to be a star regardless of this)

      You are a legend KM. I just want to know. Are you a scout for Collingwood. Because your descriptions on players are awesome. Keep up the good work. C2B

        I'm just a hobby scout. Not employed by any club. Just a Collingwood fan who loves his footy - AFL, state league and u18. Can't get enough of it.

        Forward who shows promise. He's been impressive over the second half of the season. Draft eligable next year. Will be interesting to see how good he can become. Has the opportunity to go 1st round with continued improvement.

      Any tips on making a mock draft
      1. Knightmare
        Knightmare
        Read widely and get to as many u18 games as you can.

        You really need to build a strong knowledge base so that you can back up your draft order with some sound reasoning.

        Sadly with other committments I'm very time poor and my work on the AFL draft and Collingwood list management threads take up more time than I have as is.

        Would love to find the time though! Any fantasy football is always a great deal of fun but I'm someone who is either all in or not at all and I'm just not willing to half commit to something.

      Amazing work with your mock drafts- Loving how much effort you put in. Keep up the legendary work. Goodonya mate.
      Got 2 questions:
      1) Who would you rather in your team: Jaeger O'Meara, Lachie Whitfield or Brad Crouch?
      2) Who do you think that the best player drafted since 2007 has been, and who WILL be the best player in the future?
      Thanks mate, keep up the stunning hard work
      1. Knightmare
        Knightmare
        1. Difficult call. I'd probably go with O'Meara first though - I think he will start his career the slowest of the 3 but with his pace I also see the greatest upside and potential for him to develop into a star.

      Hi, I love reading your mock drafts and I'm wondering if you could have a look at my thread: http://www.bigfooty.com/forum/showthread.php?t=917340
      It's top indig. players to not make the AFL, with your knowledge of the younger ones coming through the ranks I'm sure you'd have some memories of players you thought should have made it but didn't.
      thanks.
