I was simply pointing out that both Shaza and Freeman were rated higher than Cripps.Champion data’s rankings are fairly irrelevant in regards to actual draft order. Stats don’t take scope for development etc in to account. I’m fairly sure that seagull Higgins was their number 1 in 2017, and his ceiling is probably slightly better than Blair.
This was in response to the assertion that we did not “take the best player available”.
By all accounts we did take the best, higher rated than Cripps, players available.
