Has taken 25
I could be wrong but Im pretty sure Noble recruited Charlie Cameron twice.He almost has a spot to himself on the list if he can get himself up to basic physical spec.
We have no other small forwards who were putting up strong scoring numbers (albeit erratically) in their junior year to compete with his.
Thanks for the info.I spoke to someone close to the Western Jets and he said Paul Curtis is the best talent to come out of their program in over 5 years. When i raised Eddie Ford, he replied that Curtis had more talent and worked just as hard as Ford. He said if he had to pick out the two who would make it he didn't hesitate and say Curtis.
His words when describing Curtis were smart, evasive, great skills and has courage.
I asked him about Ford and he said heaps of talent just needs to stay focussed. Thinks there will be no.issue with Curtis on that front.
We'll see I guess, he could be a mate of Curtis for all I know but an interesting convo.
Rayner was stupidly overrated. I'm not saying this in hindsight - I posted rankings on here before that draft and had Rayner ~15th from memory.
Curtis over Rayner for me
I didn’t have Rayner as low as you but I definitely had LDU as the best prospect in that draft.
Couldn’t believe it when he slid to pick 4.
|1||1||Brisbane Lions||Cam Rayner|
|1||2||Fremantle Dockers||Andrew Brayshaw|
|1||3||Carlton Blues||Paddy Dow|
|1||4||North Melbourne Kangaroos||Luke Davies-Uniacke|
|1||5||Fremantle Dockers||Adam Cerra|
|1||6||Collingwood Magpies||Jaidyn Stephenson|
|1||7||St Kilda Saints||Hunter Clark|
|1||8||St Kilda Saints||Nick Coffield|
|1||9||Western Bulldogs||Aaron Naughton|
|1||10||Carlton Blues||Lochie O’Brien|
|1||11||GWS Giants||Aiden Bonar|
|1||12||Adelaide Crows||Darcy Fogarty|
|1||13||West Coast Eagles||Jarrod Brander|
|1||14||Sydney Swans||Matthew Ling|
|1||15||Brisbane Lions||Zac Bailey|
|1||16||Western Bulldogs||Ed Richards|
|1||17||Richmond Tigers||Jack Higgins|
|1||18||Brisbane Lions||Brandon Starcevic|
|1||19||Gold Coast Suns||Wil Powell|
This will be a big year for that draft crop. Brayshaw, Naughton and Bailey are great players already. Some of the others have shown promise. This is the year that a few (including LDU and Sleevo) will be hoping to become consistent A graders.
