I think he's done ok for pick 66.Shows that Hawthorn are quite poor in developing key defenders. After 5 years in the Hawks system, according to some posters Brand is still poor and can’t make the grade.
The reality is that we've hardly drafted any.
If you look at the players (and picks) who have been selected in key defensive positions in the All Australian team since 2010, they are: Rance (18), Talia (13), Hurley (5), Taylor (17), Thompson (37), McPharlin (10), Richards (27), Glass (11) and Reid (8).
You rarely get a very good key defender outside the top 2 rounds.
