Exactly, if we are going for project types why not go small forwards? Big bodied mid? Things we actually lack.Of course. We miss this often and feel that later ND picks are RD picks are solely for development types?
Point here should be though that if you are going for development types, earmark players where gaps present.
If they don't work out, they don't work out but you tried and list gaps open up opportunity. We can get what may seem to the better player but what's the point if he's a type we have an abundance of? Very little point at all. Not sure why we keep doing this.
Kerr is the obvious example of what you are saying, have an abundance of tall forwards as it was so what was the point? Then we go get McGovern anyway further pushing him to the fringes.
The only conceivable reason SOS went for Garlett instead of a state league player of similar age is because he must of liked him in his original draft year, we need to stop making those mistakes.
