I’d debate whether we selected well in 2018. Sturt and Valente could be busts, I’m hoping they emerge from their injuries this year coming.I agree - It's a big risk trading out our 2020 first-rounder. A 'weak' draft seems to be used often but on reflection, there are still gems available and once trade week rolls around next year rolls - draft picks will again be valuable. Also, it doesn't matter if it's comprised - clubs still need enough currency to use picks to pick up who they want.
We've selected well over the last few years and have a good hand at this year's draft already. Let's keep building each year
Other clubs have found extraordinary players from that draft.
We did well in 2016 and 2017. We need to hit 2019 and 2020 as hard as possible then sit back and reap the rewards.
Hopefully a decent free agent comes in the horizon.
