I know. It's awesome, right?Northern Academies are though.
Imagine being able to take risks with your first pick knowing that you have the safety net of two more first rounders.
Gulden was a 2nd rounder though. Dud.
My point though was that Melbourne and Carlton had a raft of high draft picks but didn't convert it into sustained success.
I think Phillips will be a very good player but I do believe not taking McDonald was a blunder. Quality key position players are harder to get. Jokes aside I hope North can get hold of some quality talent the next few years and turn the ship around.
