AFL Draft 2018 Thread


#862

With our 2018 drafting strategy of funny names how did we not get this guy!


#863

Adressed most needs except a glaring one…inside bull. Yes, Shiel is great. But could have tried one instead of Dea.


#864

So many funny names, so little time list places.


#865

Buku Khamis was picked up by the Dogs under some rookie NGA rule.


#866

Very surprised to see Mitch Grigg overlooked.


#867

Bulldog academy also, I think.


#868

And Marlion. The two best non-afl players being overlooked is odd.


#869

I saw our priorities as being small fwd/quick winger/tall fwd/ruck… so I’m perfectly happy with the way it’s turned out out.


#870

I’m happy with what we’ve done here, i feel for once we’ve addressed list needs over best possible.

Colyer, Green, Jerret all off the list and Bags probably 1 more year in him we needed small forwards and we nabbed two. Gown maybe a surprise but Stewart didn’t come on as hoped another young tall forward ain’t a bad idea


#871

To be fair, Martin Gleeson was 12 when we drafted him.


#872

Jok and Skeeta (and Dea) bleed Red and Black, makes me damn proud.

Gown needs to clean Carlton stank off him, quick smart.

Sandwich has a good doggo


#873

Ham Gown to Mosquito Tuth

Nice work Disco.


#874

Article in the Sun says our draft selections are all “Project Players” which is supposed to be a perjorative.
I mean, really, do we expect any of them to be best 22 in round 1 2019 ?
Our first pick will definitely play round 1.


#875

Agreed. We wanted either mature players who could just add to depth, or upside projects who have greater odds of being top line. We seem to have got that while covering our major list issues in the future.


#876

Despite Dodoro saying we took the exact opposite approach?


#877

I guess dods and i have a different view of list needs then


#878

That could be coincidence, or just maybe recruiting teams aren’t honest prior to (or probably after) the draft?


#879

Possibly, but I can’t see what advantage there would be to lying about it


#880

Damian Barrett did a lot of research on these two.
A lot.


#881

Yeah, I absolutely call BS on that statement by Dodoro.

I don’t expect to hear his real thoughts.
