Went back and re read the original posts. You are talking about Franklin and Roughead being top 5, I was talking about our two first round picks next year 2 + 2 = 5. Anyway moving on. Can"t agree on your point "just as many decent tall position players have come through the rookie draft than have come from early National draft selections" Of the 30 tall forwards I can think of 17 have been top 20 selections. A further 4 were 2nd round and 4 were father sons. Only 2 came via the rookie draft. You have a greater chance of a player (tall or short) making it from selections in the top 20. Need multiple high picks, just like the strategy GWS is employing. Might be the way to go as any 18 year old talls are going to be 4/6 years until maximum output. Getting Wright 3 years in gives the team an immediate lift and fits in the time frame of Cotchin and Martin being at their best. Only problem is cost. Will take more than just one First Round pick to get him.
