Given the draft is supposedly shallow this year, I think there maybe some more state league types drafted. There’s certainly got to be some method behind West Coast for example trading heavily into the second round by giving GC their 2018 first rounder. I’m guessing they have their sights set on the likes of Kelly, Ryan & Schloithe(?) to assist their list regeneration.
I really don’t know what our approach will be but I suspect we will still draft a young player to develop and my thoughts on North are well known, hopefully he’s one that slides through to 48. I really don’t see there being big gaps between our picks either, think a lot of clubs will pass after having the mandatory bites of the cherry via early picks or rookie upgrades. Hopefully we’ve identified some talent in the back end of the draft again. We’ve had some recent success with Gleeson, Fantasia, Hartley, Walla etc. another one of those would be really handy.
