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.
Seems like a simplistic assessment of how we went in the draft with one pick below 43. Compared to The QLD teams with multiple 1st round picks.
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

Trade Period: Poorly handled but the right result. Gibbs too expensive and looking back I doubt it held up other trades. Unders for Lyons but used the pick well
Free Agency: Nothing. Barlow might have been good, better than Thompson anyway
Draft: Speculative as always but our best category here
Rookie Draft: Baffled but we obviously didn't rate anyone after Davis + salary cap relief for next year, plans for our cat B's, compassionate reasons all played a part

Is there a resource showing the Agents for each of the Adelaide players?
It would be recorded at AFL house most likely, but there's no master list available to the public. It's something you could potentially research by looking at agent and agency websites, but not every player is going to be on their showing off list.
