Freo smashing it out of the park

GCS, not hard with the picks they had.

GWS more high end talent and got a bargain with Green

Losers

Not rapt with Melbourne’s draft so far, Jackson could be great but pick 3 is a big gamble and another big gamble with Pickett @pick 10.

Port’s draft not really impressing me much either.

Biggest losers

People that point out you can’t know who’s won the draft for years and have a bit fun on draft night.

Carlton reaching for Philp is a head scratcher. Hawks reaching for Day arguably worse. Port reaching for Georgiades.

Everyone for letting Robertson slide, especially Geelong, Carlton and Richmond.

How the fu** do Dow and Philp get taken before Robertson

You could say the same about the dogs reaching for Weigthman.

Yeah I would have loved Robertson or even Dylan Williams with that pick, but considering we would have taken Kemp at pick 9 anyway, kind of a free hit with that pick I guess.

Some pretty big reachers on face value and how Young, Green and to a lesser extent Kemp went so late was very hard to understand.

Not so sure about the Hawks reaching.

A lot of recruiting gurus at AFL clubs viewed him as having one of the biggest upsides in the draft pool.

A fact confirmed by KM.

Carlton could’ve turned pick 9 into Kemp and Robertson which would’ve been nearly the craziest (at the time of the draft) haul ever from that sort of a pick.

Instead they drafted 1 gun who slid probably 10 picks too far in Kemp but massively reached on the next pick for what looks to be a meh player.

Philp was projected in the 20's, he went 20. So hardly a reach.

Think it was Stephens, Serong or Young for us. We would’ve held 9 (11?) if one of those were on the board.

Sydney really threw a spanner in it passing on Flanders. Good choice IMO.
I think the Sydney pick absolutely changed the future picks and any swap between Adelaide and Carlton. I think you guys wanted Stephens and if Sydney didn’t take him then a trade would have happened

I believe Knightmare had him at 24 and Champion data at 28 so not that 'massive' a reach (regardless of the fact I'd never heard of him).
