"Ridley has the most upside of anyone in the draft" - some bloke who I can't remember, probably Jackets though, maybe Twomey and probably not exactly what he said, but close enough
Hindsight is fantastic but I reckon Ridley will turn out to be a great player. Brisbane had a lot of good picks, they could afford a risk or two. Imagine if Witherden did an O'Meara and couldn't walk without 6 seasons of physiotherapy. Jackets clearly felt the risk wasn't worth it when Ridley was available with a clear bill of health.
