    Do you think getting that pick, and selecting Rozee was Port's end goal? Or was it a play to get further up the ladder if possible by a second trade up with GCSs/CAL/StK?

    Who knows.

    I think the end goal was a number of guys they thought wouldn’t last to pick 11

    Port still could have picked Hately, Clark and Sturt at 12, but didn’t. I haven’t seen any draft threads suggesting Rozee would have made it there. They could have picked Hill and Valente even later.

    The word was port wanted to get into the top 5. I guess hindsight is always an expert, but all we can tell is they rated Rozee and Butters higher than all of the players mentioned other than Caldwell - and were one pick off of having a crack at him if they wanted him.

    So the strategy was sound based on ‘their’ ranking of the players you called out..... the question is were their player ratings around the mark.

    That prediction didn't age well.
