That's Sam Landsberger's article who works for the Herald Sun. Generally he is a decent reporter.
What did he mean to say?? 2 Sudanese heritage kids drafted are now drafted in the 1st round compared those listed above who were taken as a rookie or NGA or late picks. That means they are high on recruiters radars especially given Mac Andrews was taken last night at pick 5.
But yes that was bloody poorly written to try and make a decent point.
