Well that's a fair comment, but I don't think we did as well in the draft as a team like Brisbane or Gold Coast. As for the rookie draft, passing a pick was unusual so that's why I think we did poorly there.
This can only be assessed in 5 or so years.
For instance Rory Sloane in the 50's? Great value for currency spent, who is now one of the best in the AFL v Bryce Gibbs at #1 an OK player but not within the top 15-20 players in AFL not as good a pick.
A good one to keep an eye on in the future is comparing Lyons and Poholke, if Poholke is better than Lyons it's a successful draft pick or upgrade
