Analysis: The only 2 clubs to pick a player who is still at their club and has played more than fifty games with their first pick after Jackson were Carlton with Sam Rowe who was a mature age player who will be 30 this year (so he was about Jackson's age now when they picked him) and Freo win hands down with their first pick (delayed pick) after Jackson, which was pick 58 Lachie Neale. And if we are being honest Bradley Hill wasn't a bad pick either.
I might have been a bit tough on St Kilda with Daniel Markworth suffering a lot of injuries and them also picking Jack Newnes and Jimmy Webster.
But overall, the chances of picking a winner (a serviceable player) in this part of the draft are about 30% on average, and the chance of striking gold probably about 10%.
You have to judge the gems over time though, plenty thought Hooker was nothing special, it took over 5 years for Essendon FC to fully appreciate him, having offered to trade him at the end of 2012 to West Coast, and we have Cale to thank for that not happening as he had the final say so because he was contracted. It took a full 5 years for Jobe to reach 50 games with it taking to his 4th year to get more than 7 games a season, and how long did it take us to fall in love with Ambrose.
