If I'm the Suns, I'm eying off Port's picks 5 and 10. I take Lukosious at 2 (which makes it all but certain I'm about to take Rankine at 3) likely triggering a bidding war for Pick 3 between the two SA clubs for Rankine.
I cant see Port and the Crows sitting by without a whimper while the Suns select both Luko and Rankine at 2 and 3.
You are assuming port are prepared to give up further picks to move 1 or 2 spots higher when they are very very likely to get Rozee at 5 anyway. They have also been on air saying they are very happy to go with the picks they have
I was shocked on the night as only tuned in well over an hour after the draft started and just as I did it was showing on afl site Carlton next pick. I just assumed it was a mistake for a minute or two and then was like WTF??? lol
I love how unpredictable it proved to be.
As footy fans we probably have learned no point trying to predict as too many unknowns. Just sit back and enjoy the surprises in future.
Love the AFL have given us videos to watch after the fact to see some of what was going on for club staff at the time.
