West Coast only have a handful of quality youngsters. Most of the older players will be retiring so they could be in a poor state for at least 5 more years.
Reid will be walking into a club where he is the number one player in the team and he's going to get pummeled on a weekly basis. Not a lucky situation at all.
Probably the worst timing for any number 1 pick since Jack Watts & Tom Scully walking into a basket-case over at Melbourne.
In terms of ranking bad situations, you can't go past North over last 2 years, GC in 19 and Carlton in 18.
Notice that clubs who had previously experienced finals success in Bris, GWS and Adelaide have all developed their no 1 picks better (IMO).
