Higgins a must if named round 1, broke the CD record with 29 tons in 32 games of junior footy. Never plays a bad game.

Garner a great bench option if named, pure footballer who is a great intercept mark. Needs to build the tank but a good preseason could change all that.

My smokey is Kyron Hayden, suffered from OP and had zero prep for the state carnival but still managed to average 14 touches. Reminds me of Dane Swan.

Mitch Crowden is another who I think could surprise, built like a tank but is quick & has a huge left foot.

LDU probably the only top priced rookie I'd consider, will get plenty of games. Not remotely interested in Dow, only averaged 20 touches at TAC level and just seems vanilla to me.

DEF: Doedee, Clark (D/M), Paton, Richards, Murray
MID: LDU, Worpel, Venables, Dow, Wigg, Kelly, Cerra, Brayshaw, Stephenson (M/F) Freeman, Fritsch, Moore
RUC: Hayes
FWD: Higgins, Garlett, Fogarty, Ahern (F/M)

They'd be my early front runners for rookies. Mids are stacked considering the cheapies on offer too.

Forget Hayes, had the worst tank in the pool, too skinny to cut it as a forward. Moore is too small for a sustained run in the seniors.

Worpel probably the best value, odds on to to a Jack Graham.

LUKE DAVIES-UNIACKE (North Melbourne)

Expected position: Mid

Expected price: $198,000

Arguably the draftee with the most AFL-ready game and body should walk straight into the Kangaroos line-up. The Dandenong product was ranked No.1 for disposal efficiency of all TAC Cup players to average more than 10 contested possessions. Expensive but with a SuperCoach friendly game and club.

JARROD GARLETT (Carlton)

Expected position: Mid-Fwd

Expected price: $117,300

“Mr Irrelevant”. The last pick in the draft but amazingly a former No.15 draft pick at Gold Coast in 2014. After quitting the Suns due to family reasons at the end of 2016, Garlett is ready to go around again following a strong season with South Fremantle. Averaged 34 and 56 in his two seasons and after missing only one year, his price may be higher than his draft pick suggests.

DOM BARRY (Port Adelaide)

Expected position: Mid-Fwd

Expected price: $117,300

Has already had a taste of AFL but stepped away for personal reasons. Still only 23, he gets another chance at Port Adelaide after impressing for Glenelg in the SANFL, averaging 21 disposals. Has blistering pace and should step straight into Jarman Impey’s shoes.

ZAC BAILEY (Brisbane Lions)

Expected position: Mid

Expected price: $148,000

Expect him to start as a small forward at AFL level, a role which isn’t always SuperCoach friendly. However, his speed and aggressive tackling should see him get plenty of opportunity at the rebuilding Lions. Definitely one to watch in the pre-season.

JAIDYN STEPHENSON (Collingwood)

Expected position: Mid-Fwd

Expected price: $193,000

His health concerns didn’t stop Collingwood drafting him and we don’t expect they’ll stop the Magpies from playing him. Averaged a huge 132 SuperCoach points for Vic Metro and put together 22 disposals and three goals in the under-18 All-Star Grand Final curtain-raiser. A line-breaking talent with strong endurance.

ANDREW BRAYSHAW (Fremantle)

Expected position: Mid

Expected price: $207,000

Scored 100 or more in every TAC Cup game this year for Sandringham Dragons and ranked No.1 for score assists. The Dockers’ list is in a state of flux and while he’ll be super expensive for a cash cow, we can be confident he’ll be given plenty of game time ... even if Ross Lyon is Ross Lyon.

DYLAN MOORE (Hawthorn)

Expected position: Mid-Fwd

Expected price: $117,300

Ranked No.9 pre-draft by Champion Data but taken No.67, making him a valuable cheap cash cow. Averaged 130 SuperCoach points in the TAC Cup for Eastern Ranges and 114 SuperCoach points for Vic Metro in the national championships. Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson isn’t afraid to play the youngsters.

HUNTER CLARK (St Kilda)

Expected position: Def-Mid

Expected price: $184,000

A stylish kick on both feet who averaged 129 SuperCoach points when playing midfield for Dandenong Stingrays. The Saints didn’t draft him No.7 for no reason. He’ll play for the get-go and hopefully with dual position eligibility will be a popular pick. Price could be an issue if he’s a midfielder only.

CHARLIE CONSTABLE (Geelong)

Expected position: Mid

Expected price: $123,900

Yes, Geelong’s midfield is stacked but Chris Scott likes complimenting his stars with youngsters. The Cats debuted eight in 2017, the second most of any club. At 190cm, Constable has the body to step into the AFL after averaging 120 in the TAC Cup finals and 121 at the under-18 national championships.

ED RICHARDS (W.Bulldogs)

Expected position: Def

Expected price: $144,000

Luke Beveridge isn’t afraid to give the kids a go and with Bob Murphy and Matthew Boyd retiring there’s a couple of spots open in the Dogs backline. Loves to run and attack with speed, which suits the Dogs gameplan. In the final six TAC Cup games with Oakleigh, the halfback averaged 17 disposals, seven handball receives and three tackles.

Charlie Constable another to be wary of, was nearly 2 minutes off the leader in in the 2km time trial. He also had one of the poorest clearance & contested ball ratios at the carnival. Massively over hyped by the media due to his height. The Cripps comparisons made me choke on my cornflakes.

Bailey looks like a ripper but will play in defence.

Hunter Clark may be worth it given his DPP status.

Then it's a no from me. Guys like Higgins, Worpel, Hayden, Daniels & Crowden much better value.

As long as I have one or two dpp on fwd/mid lines it is not necessary to worry about the balance of available rookies.  Hunter Clark looks one of the most ready 2018 rookies.  I expect him to get game time and step up.  Not having the DPP not an issue.  Starting Game 1 that is an issue.

Clark has a bit of competition at the Saints, he has also spent the majority of his time in defence. Good player but not a walk up starter for midfield duties.

Be happy to see him start in backs.   Issue is getting a gig.   Not really concerned if he does not start as need to juggle rookies to who starts and as we know good JLT form does not translate into getting a gig or having JS.    JS is probably what Armitage, JOM, etc have over the rookies.
