I think of all these players that Tom Stewart would likely be taken first in a redraft, and that Bolton would fall behind Ridley, Taranto and McCluggage but if we are talking the best then I think Shai is most certainly worthy of a mention. Only reason he wouldn't go high in a redraft is that he's tiny, he can't win his own footy or contribute to the structure of the team in a meaningful way.Darcy is not in that list and every coach would take Bolton in front of McCluggage and Taranto.
Have you watched Bolton play much?
He is a star though. I'd say he's probably the best right now but Taranto probably has the highest ceiling, something about his physical attributes that sets him apart. Anyone who suggests that Bolton isn't a star doesn't know footy and/or is looking for a fight.
