St Kilda say they have finalised its plans for Thursday’s AFL draft, including who they will pick at no.1.
It is believed the first pick will come out of the trio of Christian Petracca, Patrick McCartin or Angus Brayshaw, with reports suggesting Petracca is the most likely to be selected at the coveted no.1 pick.
“There has been speculation for months about who we will take – especially with pick one – but the reality is that we only finalised our decision last week,” Richardson told the St Kilda website.
“We believed the choice at pick one came down to Paddy McCartin or Christian Petracca but that Angus Brayshaw would also have been a worthy selection.
“It is not as black and white as some people believe. While Petracca is a very exciting forward/midfielder I think McCartin’s claims on being the top selection have been undersold as he’s a quality key forward and they don’t grow on trees.
“Having pick one means we have been in the fortunate position of being able to take our time, do our research, check and re-check and make an informed decision without having to factor in what other clubs will do.”
St Kilda hold picks 1, 21, 22 and 41 in Thursday’s AFL draft, which will be held on the Gold Coast.
