I think Paddy made it pretty clear in that article that the Swans is where he wants to play so it would be pretty dumb for another team to pick him when he's saying things like;As I understand it, the mid season draft is reverse ladder order at the time of the draft. If Paddy tears it up in the ECFL, what is to stop another team drafting him? Is he "protected" because he plays for our ECFL team? Or is there some sort of understanding that because we took the punt on him other teams will not draft him?

“I’ve got that energy back for footy, which I probably didn’t have for a while, even before my concussions. [Melbourne is] a high-pressure environment and there’s a lot going on. To be up here now, I’m able to enjoy it a bit more and I think that will be very beneficial with my footy and just for my overall wellbeing.”
