    i may be a bit harsh but lets be honest there are a fairly solid group of number 1's from 93 til today so where Hedland and Fraser were okay players when bunched in with the likes of Riewoldt Hodge Cooney and even Murphy Gibbs Gardiner these guys are at the lower end of the scale really you cant consider anyone after Tom Boyd because they have such a small amount of games to their name to really make a judgment and there is still time that they could become anything

    Agreed. And apart from a handful or two of games, Boyd is in the same category as most of the guys you have mentioned - towards the lower end of the scale for #1 picks. But.....

    No, the OP stated that his list was from the time he started following footy in around 1993 but he started by saying this was "a thread to pick the all time best and worst top 10 draft picks"

    No i just remember thinking that he sounds overally confident and he ended up being a bust.
    That Melbourne spud they took ahead of Wines a couple of years ago made a smart ass comment on draft night as well.

    Was going to mention that, maybe most on here can’t but I certainly remember lounder and Anthony banik. Banik while a disappointment was much better than lounder who would have to be the worst pick 1 of all time. It was in the drafts early days however when recruiting wasn’t the same standard as today.

    We don't win 2008 without Hodge - fact.

    St Kilda probably win 2009/2010 if they had Hodge.

    Boy o boy. Pick 4's had some doozies. Tambling, Farron Ray and Toumpas are just about the trifecta.

    You're not doing it right.

    <player from my team> is better than <player from list> because <cherry pick stats> and <opnion stated as fact>

    Hope this helps.

    Dowler kicked 4 in a game once. Gets in ahead of Thorp just on that

    Thorp may have been a flog, but he was more talented than Dowler. I suppose it depends on how you wanna determine “worst”.

    Richard Lounder kicked 4 on debut and he's the pin-up boy of draft disasters.

    It's not a fact (not that it ever could be). Hodge was a key player but there's any number of players that could have played the loose man in defence and collected 26 disposals as Hodge did in the 2008 GF. The genius of Clarkson (many of the Cats 23 behinds were deliverately rushed largely contributing to the rule change), missed opportunities by the Cats in the 1st half and Bomber having a mare in the box (Cats were killing them out of the middle for a large part of the match and allowing the loose defender in Hodge to be unaccountable was madness) were far bigger factors.

    Riewoldt comfortably. Hodge deserves the accolades he receives but I never went to a Hawks game with the knowledge that if we stopped Hodge we win unlike Roo & St Kilda.

    You clearly didn't watch the 2008 GF.

    Hodge directly stopped 16 of Geelong's massive 64 inside 50 entries on his own. Without him they probably run riot and put 140 plus on us, that is how important he was that day.

    Nah.
    Nick Riewoldt all day every day.

    Without the team success Hodge would be considered a good player, not a great.

    Yes and you win the game with a team.
    So you think that Taylor Duryea was better than Nathan Buckley?

    Riewoldt the better player. 99% of neutrals will agree.

    You won by 5 goals.
    Dont be daft.

    I know you're a hawks fan but this equating team success to individual success thing is complete bullshit.

    How many Norm Smith medals has Taylor Duryea won?
    How many has Luke Hodge won?

    In the very biggest game of our sport, Luke Hodge has been Best-on-Ground twice.

    I would prefer Luke Hodge in my team than Nick Riewoldt, he was effectively an on-field coach and was a huge part of a team that won 4 premierships. We play to win the game, and Hodge was a winner.

    Good luck with your 99%, put up a poll, it would be closer to 50/50 than you would imagine.

    P.S. I hate St Kilda and Hawthorn equally.

    Jesus Norm Smith is best on ground in ONE game. Yes its the most important game but it is still one game.

    Byron Pickett, Shaun Hart, Andrew Embley etc these guys have won a norm smith.
    Are they better than say Peter Burgoyne, Nigel Lappin and Daniel Kerr...hell no.

    Hodge was only a winner because he was in a winning team... how hard is that to understand.
    If he was at Carlton he would've been a perennial loser.

    You don't think that Nick did the onfield coaching and leadership thing?

    Not to mention playing the hardest position on the ground, and actually changing the game for EVERY key forward to come afterwards.
    In fact you could say today's footy is modeled around Riewoldt's game to an extent.

    Dont get me wrong Hodge was a very very good player and even better leader, but Nick was the better player by a margin IMO.
    Sam Mitchell was a better player than Hodge.

    You don't win 2 Norm Smiths by chance.
    Performing on the biggest stage elevates Hodge in my books big time.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
