Hipwood is gonna be a gun but if ur going by what they've produced so far he's gotta drop abit
That's interesting that you think he's dropped in value. From my view he has done a lot more than what was expected of him and has shown glimpses of brilliance regularly. It may just be my bias

Nah I'm completely with u on that. He's the closest thing I've seen to a young buddy. But the other guys have been a lot more consistent than hipwood. Just doesn't have the strength or workrate yet to stay in the game for 4 quarters

So far. I expect Kennedy, Hopper, Milera, Clarke, Fiorini, Mathieson and Curnow to really challenge this.

Curnow would be selected top 10. The only reason he wasn't in 2015 was because of his drink driving incident.

Too much raw potential not too, and already has some decent games to his name.

Charlie has been the pick of the key forwards so far.

Hipwood's numbers don't even come close.

In a draft you must factor in potential too. If it was redone Hipwood goes high, he looks the goods.

It looks a great draft for KPP so far with Weitering, Hipwood, Schache, Curnow, Burton and Himmelberg all showing some good signs at AFL level.

Weidaman, Francis and the Mckay brothers are also obviously promising.

Adams as a mature ager must also be factored into discussion.

1. Weitering
2. Burton
3. Oliver (I know everyone here faps over him, and he has been excellent as a 2nd year player, but he's a less effective version of Tom Mitchell - check their metres gained and handballing % statistics to see what I mean and I think his ceiling will be about that of Tom Mitchell)
4. Hipwood
5. Parish
6. Hopper
7. Curnow
8. Kennedy

Re Oliver, you could say the same about Josh P Kennedy, Cunnington, Matt Crouch and just about every other pure inside mid. He crushed us in clearances a week ago. Oliver=3 burtons

Yeah but you think De Goey is a far trade for Gunston as well. Oliver has been better so far, but I believe Burton has a better upside.
