It's a philosophical issue for me with picks like this.

I struggle to see McDonagh translating to AFL for us because the position is pretty well covered for the balance of his career (at 26).

I prefer to take the raw products, unfished sets of attributes to mould into the sorts of players you need. Players are always going to have weaknesses once they fall into the 50. At that point it's pieces of puzzle. Long dishing the ball to our dynamic clearance players works all day for me.
That depends on his position. In Dodoro's draft watch video he says they see him as a wing. Well, in the EF both our main wings didn't play (Langford & Cox), Durham had little impact, and Ham didn't even play. So we're kind of screaming out for depth in that position.
