I don't get many things right, so I will just leave this here...

I know this is not the strongest draft, but I can see Kemp sliding to our pick 9 or beyond.

Jake Lever captained Vic in his underage year, was touted as a future top 3 pick. Missed his entire draft year with an ACL and went pick 14. In fact, Adelaide were so sure Lever would last that they traded down from pick 10 to pick 14 before the draft.

Ryan Burton was touted as a future #1 pick. Kicked 5 goals in his first champs match as an underager. Got glandular fever and badly broke his leg. Lasted til pick 19.

Each of these players had a full year of recovery behind them by the time they were drafted. Although on the flip side, they had no draft year performance to assess.

TL,DR: Not sure that Kemp goes top 10...

Woooooo hoooooooo - I am so stoked with this.

I like the fact he is a bit of big head. It gives us two big bodied mid-fielders (Stocker and Kemp) with a bit of mongrel and arrogance ....and then there's Crippa.


.....and watch how the media paint this as a fail for Carlton whereas if another club (eg: Hawthorn) had taken Kemp it would be the 'Steal of the Draft'.
