I'm not sure if it factors in with bargaining position, but these kids are "reported" to be signing for $350k - $400k for their 3rd and 4th season. If these kids are moving to another club, the kids aren't likely, or are not willingly, going to take a pay cut when they move.I'd definitely do the 4 years on Lukosius and Rankine, and probably King.
I know contracts are very breakable these days, but it does provide a bargaining position if they do want to leave. And with what most assume are pretty special talents, already with strong interest from Adelaide and St Kilda, IMO we should certainly give extensions early and back our rejuvenated club setup to help them deliver on potential.
It 's been discussed by Twomey and Whiting that the draftees who do sign those two year extensions, are often the most over paid players in the sport compared to actual output on the field.
