    Noble was perhaps a kick away from playing in a grand final and Pickett is an outside chance of getting a game. Some positives against all the negativity on the mid season draft.

    Stuff it. After years of Jarrad Grant, I'm calling this one even if he doesn't play for us....

    I wonder if his story today opens up more clubs to look at mature state league gun players like him who have made the odd mistake. He seems to have hit the ground running at Richmond and was focussed on his future and not his history.

    It certainly seems like the mid season draft will be players that can impact this season, or getting good kids early which wasn't the intended purpose of it. We did neither of those things this year. Hopefully a respected journo does a detailed analysis on all the PSD picks and players post the GF and give us all some insight to what work well for teams in different areas of the ladder.

    Re: 2019 Mid Season Draft

    I know a lot of people get excited by the the success of the likes of Marlion Pickett but I remain convinced the Mid Season draft isn't required

    The number 1 pick Josh Deluca has been delisted after 6 games
    #2 Mitch Riordan didn't play a senior game for the Suns
    #3 Kyle Dunkley played 5 games for Melbourne
    #4 Michael Knoll and #5 Lachlan Hosie didn't play for Sydney or North
    #6 Ryan Gardner played just 2 games for us
    #7 Will Snelling played 5 games for Essendon but hasn't got a contract for 2020 yet
    #8 Jack Mayo didn't play for the Saints
    #9 Cameron Sutcliffe played 5 games for Port

    Dillon O'Reilly didn't play for Freo, Pickett just one game for the Tigers, John Noble 5 games for the Pies and is still uncontracted and Cody Hirst didn't play and is waiting to see if he gets another contract

    Hardly a compelling result to have a mid season draft

    I agree it's not needed and couldn't the AFL just extend the playing lists by a couple.
    There are plenty of talented people in the world. As you already know, talent is not enough. Some of the athletes with the most potential never pan out. What separates the good from the great is determination and work ethic.

    Re: 2019 Mid Season Draft

    But it was so successful. That’s why we really need a mid season trade....

    You’re dead right.

    There it is in a nutshell, extend the rookie list to 6 and say to clubs to stop bitching when they cop a couple of injuries
    The onus is on the clubs to balance their lists and cover some likely scenario's

    And Hosie missed out playing in a premiership at Glenelg

    Josh Dunkley would have certainly been picked up in this draft too, so that's not that much of an endorsement for the mid-season draft.
