    Anyone who picked a player late in the draft that was supposed to go lower according to random Bigfooty posters.

    Port absolutely killed it. Getting Sam Hayes and Joel Garner with picks after 40 is crazy good.

    I was surprised with the Swans picking Ling but it seems we really targeted running halfbacks who are good kicks and decision makers as we got Stoddard who is the same as well.

    We also got McCartin who looks promising, and he also has to be the youngest player in the draft as he doesn't turn 18 for another 5 weeks. Probably has another few centimetres in growth left in him.

    I am sure the Swans won't win in this thread, but I am moderately happy with how our draft went as the Swans clearly drafted for needs in all our picks this year.

    Few people I talk to in Club land didn’t have LDU in top 5. One of those bigfooty things. Freo will be wrapped with Cerra and Brayshaw.

    Freo did really well Brayshaw is probably the safest bet in the draft.

    Really happy with LDU. Beating Bris in the last round now stands for SFA. I would have been happy with him at 1. Our next 2 picks were Meh but Hartung will add much needed pace. After LDU the rest of the draft could not have dampened my high.

    Very Happy with our first two picks - will allow Fyfe to go forward sooner rather than later. Bit flat we didn't go after a decent KPB, Johnson is done and Hamling needs support, Logue is a third tall, there's a gap we should have drafted for.

    Interesting draft for West Coast - looks like they don't think they're any chance of winning a flag any time soon and went hard at refreshing their spine. Good picks with their first two - shocker with the 3rd and then bought it home well with Ainsworth and Petruccelle.

    Was humorous to see GCS swipe Wil Powell from the Coasters, they did their best to hide him this year. Hats off to GCS recruiters.

    Thank you Fremantle! Brayshaw is a gun, but really didn't expect LDU to drop to us. Very happy.

    Brander, Allen and Ryan. Surely you're happy dude, genuinely think you did alright. No mids, but two forwards, or one forward, one defender. WCE get a tick in my eyes.

    Richmond the standout, Port did well with what they had also.
    Quite happy with our selections aswell, seen plenty of the two Sturt lads this year and was impressed by both

    Carlton clearly won this draft... The 0 games and 0 goals from their recruits speak for itself.

    The other 17 teams clearly lost, as their players have only combined for 0 games and 0 goals.
