We have picks 1,2 and 4.KPD
Now comes the tricky part. Who leaves to create the list space? Will Barry O'Connor have progressed enough to be a KPD? Lachlan McAndrew to be a rookie ruck?
Who will be best available at (say) pick 10? Almost certainly a mid. What's coming through the academy?
Geez I'm glad it's Kinnear and Simon doing this and not me!!!
This is the good and the bad
We got 3 players through the draft that came straight into best 22 and starred.
We also had a traded in ruck that went straight into best 22.
4 players into best 22.
3 players have to leave the best 22.
Kennedy-aging. Has Warner and Rowbottom and Parker and hewett and.....
ORiordan-Irish, 26years but only played 23 games. Not the future.
It is getting harder every year. We have lots of quality coming in but not much experienced players will go out over the next 3-4 years. Its creating a squeeze. And that will be good.
