spot on. On sen last Friday they were talking about how SA players were of high value because of there ability to play last year but they said last year Powell didn’t play under 19’s or something like that? And that would have impacted recruiters decisions. They went onto say had COVID not affected the games and he played in the U/19s or he would have gone at 8 or lower.yeh but as someone said above, not if you redrafted tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that's the point.
If you were sitting at the draft table with the next pick and were deciding between Powell and Phillips with all that we have seen this season, which way would you go?Even if you redrafted tomorrow, he's not going more than 10 spots higher.
I mean, we took another mid before him ffs.
which is odd as there were rumours, boarding conspiracy, that Adelaide were aware of Powell and we almost trying to hide him from national recruiters in the lower levels of the SANFL.The big surprise was Adelaide taking Pedlar at 11.
Early days, but Bruhn & Powell would have been rated above him on basically all talent orders IMO (bar Adelaide's LOL).
Joel Selwood would be declared a steal when he went at pick 7. Especially after most recruiters (obviously not Geelong) were scared off due to the knee fearsNo you don't.
A top ten pick is the most valuable recruitment tool there is.
There's no steals in the top 10.
They both just add something to our overall midfield mix. Don’t get the comparison need.They both look great. Powell more advanced initially, sure, but Phillips will be on the same level very soon.
Given Powell has smarts in spades i guess he didn't have to rely on developing as much,his best work was in traffic nad with his spacial awareness didnt have to rely on strength as much. Phillips looks like more of a LDU case where he may need to develop a bit to show his junior form against better bodies. regardless it great to have both,Powell clearly for mine based off exposed form. He looks complete whereas Philips hasn’t shown an outside game and looks tentative. But year 1 so much to play out.

That is a big if tho. Some good players there.Yeah with pick 13.
So if he ends up better than WillPhill (pick 3), LDU (pick 4), TT (pick 8) and Jy (pick 12) then he's a bloody steal..
