Brayshaw coming like a bullet atm.

Alex Neal-Bullen would have to be very close to the top 11-15.

Pretty decent draft from Melbourne

We’ve done really well to have four best 22 players & one traded in from this draft given it wasn’t the deepest going. Two key forwards, two gun mids and a decent utility.

2, 3, 40, 42, 53

2 and 3 you expect guns, but 40 and particularly 53?

I would put Maynard and Duggan top 10 behind Brayshaw. Ed Langdon in the 10-15 group. The other 2 yes probably right 15-20

Oscar Mcdonald should be lower - he should be around 20.
You what? Oscar McDonald is a gun. Have you watched him this year?

The guy who has Oscar Mcdonald as his profile picture thinks Oscar Mcdonald is a gun. Shocker.

Some people obviously don't rate him as high as you do.
Well they'd be pretty stupid in that case. He's the only genuine KPD in a defence that is having a huge season, and has only had his colours lowered by Riewoldt and Brown. Has comfortably dealt with everyone else. I'm going to say that neither of you have watched him very much, which is fine, but don't make me laugh by saying the likes of Brayden Maynard and Ed Langdon are ahead of him.

I've watched probably 95% of his games. Are you worried about any other ratings that you find inaccurate or just the guy in your profile picture?

He's in my DP as a running joke. We all hated OMac for the first 2-3 years of his career and thought he was getting games because of his brother. Significant egg on our face, hence the photo.

OMac is a great lock down defender. Ben Brown kicked 4 on him, other than that he has stopped every other KPF.

Problem is he doesnt get enough possessions for people to notice what he is doing.

Not the greatest draft in recent years
1st rd:
1-Andrews
2-Heeney
3-Petracca
4-Brayshaw
5-Lever
6-Wright
7-McLean
8-McGovern
9-De Goey
10-Daniel
11-Moore
12-Marchbank
13-Miller
14-Langford
15-Melican
16-Lambert
17-Butler
18-McKenna

Outside the top 10, there aren't many who would walk straight into sides.

For a while this was looking great for us, three 2016 premiership players in Toby McLean, Caleb Daniel and Zaine Cordy. Plus Bailey Dale who is best 22 and Lukas Webb.

Sadly now while McLean is a gun and Cordy would get a game at most sides Daniel has regressed. All three are still in our best 22 now though while we rebuild. Dale injured and Webb never kicked on

Cordy would go top 15. Performing already as a young KPD and will be a bookend for 10 years. Just as good as Oscar McDonald, just a shame he's playing in a crap team.

1-Heeney
2-Andrews
3-Petracca
4-Lever
5-McGovern
6-De Goey
7-McLean
8-Wright
9-McDonald
10-Cordy
11-Moore
12-Miller
13-Brayshaw
14-Blakely
15-Howard
16-Weller
17-Neal-Bullen
18-Daniel
19-Duggan
20-Howe
