Hello friends, enemies and inbetweeners, and welcome to another year of not only marvellous, but objectively correct, draft observations brought to you by PMBangers of Rookie Me Central.
The 2022 class looked mighty impressive this time last year and fizzled out into a bit of an underwhelming group by the end of the season, so I won't be making any big claims about 2023 like I did last year. In saying that, this is easily the most enthused I've been about a draft in my short time following along.
Early on it looks like if your club has a need for some forward half X-Factor you're in luck, but as usual I expect quite a few of the flankers from last year to move into more permanent midfield roles and even out the position balance at the top end, but the mix of heights and traits amongst the higher end prospects is exciting for sure
As usual, feel free to ask questions, I need the attention, and also as usual, simpsons/ futurama/ office/ arrested development/ south park/ always sunny references are enjoyed and appreciated
If you feel inclined to share your very strong, and very good, opinions on this years crop and decide this thread is the best place to do it, maybe check out the 2023 General Draft discussion thread instead =) Preview - 2023 AFL Draft General Discussion
