Would love him or Salem from the Dees (13 draft). Good decision makers who never look panicked.
This is from a couple of years ago from someone fairly high up, "From our cold, dead, hands". At that point in time he was considered the in the top 5 most important players at the club.

Our draft isn’t looking too bad again now

Parish in his right position and the form of his career
Francis as a make shift forward has been most handy given our injuries.
Redman has been very solid and showing top shelf disposal
Tippa is our barometer.
And I never thought I’d say it, but I miss Mitch brown

Can't say I agree on Brown just doesn't have the strength or athletic ability to win the ball against a competent defender. It's a pity for him as with his finishing ability and footy smarts you could see him being a very good footballer if he hadn't had so many injuries.

Must revisit this in a year or two. I have high hopes for Sier on exposed (2018) form. I think he’ll be back in this week/soon.

Also Tom Phillips has been good for us. ?? Top 20 or even 15.

Parish and Francis would be value picks if they were taken at 24 and 25.

Not the worst haul but considering they had 2 top 10 picks you be wanting a lot more out of the draft, still have time though as it’s only early days.

Yeah I rate Phillips. Probably hard to find a spot for him in the top 10 but he'd be near it.

Gee - pretty weak draft overall

A standout in Oliver - a few who might kick on and a lot of middling talent.

Managing to secure mature talent seems like a win for WC

a recycled Menegola and Greenwood the real late steals

I posted the same at the end of last year. A lot of posters disagreed.

IMO 2002 is the only other draft worse than 2015.

If Im drafting right now, Ive got H Mckay top 5, easily.
He has uber talent, 203cm KPF runs like the wind, elite contested mark and good skills to go with it, it’s a pretty rare combo, there was talk that if he was two weeks younger he could of potentially gone top 3 in the 2016 draft.
He is going to be a knightmare of a match up in a few seasons.

Would like to see Ben played as a forward, he isn’t as highly skilled as Harry, but he can crash packs and would work well in a forward line with Ben Brown.

Pretty happy with this draft, from a Carlton perspective.
SOS played this draft well, took McKay before the crows could knowing that they were super keen on him and clubs were spooked by Curnow’s drink driving charge, so he would most likely still be there at our next pick, it would have been nice to get Oliver, but we were always taking Weitering with pick one.
Not often you get 3 KPP to build a team around in one draft and Cuningham has some serious talent too and JSOS could be a handy role player.
Most of these picks came from trading Henderson, Bell and Yarren

Knightmare Knew people valued your opinions re drafting, but didn't think this applied to spelling as well..

That's players sos takes in the first round pick themselves. It's outside the first round he is hopeless
If it was only so easy.

Side note, Jacob Weitering was again one of our best players yesterday against the Lions. He has been very good for us for nearly a full year now (2nd half last year, 1st half this season). Is tracking very well, and in time will make many people's redo look extremely foolish.

Pretty sure Weitering just took Hipwood to the cleaners and has been doing so to forwards all year whilst taking intercept marks for fun.

Ever heard of Williamson, or are the striped glasses obstructing your view?
Fisher?
Jack Silvagni was picked in the 50's.
Don't give me the oh but he was a f/s selection either cos the Cats didn't bid.

Fisher is a decent get but putting Jack Silvagni up is not something to write home about. Imo he is on a list due to his name only.
