Port Adelaide trades pick 9, pick 19 and pick 49; Port Adelaide receives pick 14, pick 17 and pick 31
Sydney trades pick 14, pick 17 and pick 31; Sydney receives pick 9, pick 19 and pick 49
This is another strange deal done by the Power. They’ve given up a pick inside the top 10, which is a chance to have their draftee up on stage in the Port Adelaide guernsey and in all the media photos. With the academy selections from GWS, this was an unlikely scenario but something the Power would have considered. On face value, there’s less than 90 points difference in the picks traded here. Port Adelaide probably feel with the depth in this draft, pick 31 is of great value. Sydney on the other hand want to get in the best quality young player they can with pick 9.
