Didn't Hamish say there was a guy they really wanted (guessing Nankervis) and someone else they'd take if he was available.

So guessing maybe it was Charlie Dean as another "mature age" defender? And once he was gone we went back to Davis?

Really like the Nankervis pick. But classic Adelaide to re-rookie Davis (whyyyyyy?) because he is a nice guy and then Long goes the next pick.

Soft spot for Brisbane
Nankervis was obviously the last guy we wanted, and they felt they needed a mature guy who knew the system in the final list spot.

I probably agree with mature body, but I'd have rather they took Tom Lewis or Corey Voss or SOMEONE that might surprise us and stay on the list.

Ah well, not a massive issue.

I'm assuming Voss missed ??

Feels like we've definitely changed tactics on the rookie draft and used it to re-draft players for depth or gone for mature age players who we think we'll be solid, rather than pure project players like it felt we did quite a lot prior to the last 5 years or so.

We can bag the Davis selection but it’s on the club for only given him games at the end in defence when he looked ok. He should have been tried earlier there and then we’d definitively know.

I’m not against his selection as a player.
He looked ok, in probably the easiest position on the ground in which we have far better prospects. But hey maybe 6th years the charm.

Gotta count Parnell and Murray in that too, really (and Ayce Taylor)

What does it look like for other clubs? I doubt many clubs have a high hit rate in the rookie draft.
