    The thread is top 10 picks of the draft 07 - 09.

    Rockliff was the leading goalkicked for Vic Country for 2 years wasn't he? Or in TAC or some other team I don't know. Given that, I still can't believe he slipped through to PSD

    Different players. Rockliff is not as inside. You forgot to add clearances - Cotchin : 161, Rockliff 82, 1st possesions - Cotchin: 141, Rockliff 91. Rockliff looks more your Swan type, Cotchin Pendlebury.


    He's also not tagged on a weekly basis by the oppositions best tagger. That's the reason he's so high. He has to deal with this yet his performance amongst his peers is still in the top echelon. Without said tag he'd rack up 35 touches a week. In saying that, Rockliff is very underrated and should be in everyone's top 15 lists. So should Jack Redden.

    More goals per game this year than guys like Podsiadly, Milne, Lecras, Petrie and Andrew Walker.

    Jesus, two rounds in?

    Plus if you're taking this years form into account (as you obviously have with some selections) Hurley and Martin shouldn't be top 5.

    Fair enough, I just thought if you're going to update it based on the current season... it's probably better to wait more than two rounds.

    Scott Selwood has had a really good start to the year and should be beginning to enter some peoples calculations.

    Some good players in there. Some higher on reputation more than performance though - i.e. Scully, Butcher.

    Callan Ward deserves to be higher. Scott Selwood is underrated by everyone outside West Coast. He is probably better than Zaharakis.

    Watch out for Mora to make a comeback on that list by years end and for Zac Clarke to rise up it also. Broughton was 07 draft also or do mature agers not count?

    If we're going by performance so far Cotchin is #1. Better than Fyfe, better than Nic Nat, miles ahead of Hurley.

    He's also miles ahead of Martin. Anyone with him outside the top 5 is taking the piss.

    Luke Shuey Chris Masten and Scott Selwood should be in there by the end of the year if not Scott already.

    Sheuy and Selwood need to be considered but Masten is a downhill skier and in the same bracket as Cale Morton

    I wouldn't put Lachie Henderson in the top 15, but he is rising faster than Masten and Scott Selwood.

    Almost as unheralded as Laidler who was a rookie pick in the 2007 draft.

    Nobody is rising faster than scott selwood atm. His first 3 games this year have been reflective of an elite midfielder. If he keeps this up the whole year by the end of it he will be considered in the same vein as joel. Averaging 30 disposals a game and is 7th overall. Has the highest disposal efficiency for all the players in the top 35 for disposals. Averaging 1.3 goals a game. Has the second least clangers in the competition for players that have played 3 games.

    haha. Masten polled 2 BOG's in the last 2 rounds last year and has been in the top 5 player the past 2 games for WC as well. Henderson would lucky to be Carlton's 15th best player this year.

    Hahaha.

    You have to be kidding.

    Alright my top 15 from 07-09; projected.

    1. Fyfe
    2. Cotchin
    3. Ziebell
    4. Hurley
    5. Naitanui
    6. Martin
    7. Trengove
    8. Ward
    9. Kruezer
    10. Taylor
    11. Reid (massively overrated for mine, still a very good prospect)
    12. Rockliff
    13. Zaharakis
    14. Yarran
    15. Hartlett


    I believe Watts can fit in there, but I didn't want to turn this into another thread of Watts bashing.

    So; players I think could figure.

    Bastinac, Butcher, Watts, Scully, Clarke, Sidebottom, Vickery, Rich, Hill, Selwood (if this form continues) and Dangerfield.

    How is Beams now out of contention in most peoples posts? I still think he is better than sidebottom and his kicking is in the top 5 at the club, especially under pressure and going into 50 . Come the mext 5-6 weeks he should be featuring in Collingwoods best 1-5 players in almost every game, especially with Ball out.

    Sam Reid? If youre talking Sam Reid and you think he is massively overrated but think Watts could fit in there thats a very interesting take...

    I see you can't put two and two together; a couple in this thread rated him as top 3.

    I think that's massively overrating him.
