Emma Quayle Identifies Who Could Get Picked Up In The Rookie Draft
The leading contenders.
The Age draft guru Emma Quayle has identified some of the players that may get picked up in Monday's rookie draft.
Not everyone can get picked up in the national draft, and there's always a player or two that slide through to the next stage of drafting.
Quayle, speaking on Triple M's Dead Set Legends, noted a couple.
"It'll be interesting to see whether Essendon take Xavier Richards," she said.
Richards, who has been training with Essendon, was let go by the Swans after seeking a move home.
"They've obviously had him out and had a look at him."
Another forward may be called out as Hawthorn look likely to re-rookie Jack Fitzpatrick, according to Quayle.
"I think they will (rookie him)," she suggested.
"They're sort of indicated that, haven't they, that they'd bring him back in, so that seems like it's a big chance to happen."
There was one kid Quayle pointed out that slipped all the way through.
"Matt Scharenberg's younger brother Jonty (is one)," she noted.
"There's actually some really good kids that didn't get drafted, which tells you a bit about the strength of the draft...there could be some good players to come out of it."
