Shiel played his first game in 2012. So he was notionally in the 2011 Draft ( although assigned to GWS as an underage player a year earlier)
Its interesting to note that not one player we picked from the 2011 main draft is with Essendon anymore. (but we still have Mark Baguley ) Kav, and NOB are long gone, and now Jerret.
So I guess when we include Devon Smith ( Pick 14) we got 2 first round picks out of that draft after all and in a way, the talent the AFL sucked out of the draft pool for those 2 years has been somewhat re-distributed, with Essendon the major beneficiary at this point, followed closely by Collingwood.
