Phantom draft

Another AFL draft is upon us, which means another batch of players, coaches, recruiters and fans are anxiously waiting to have their wildest dreams realised or quashed.
Every draft brings with it its own storylines and mysteries, but in what is considered the most even draft in years, this one seems to have more unanswered questions surrounding it than usual.
Will St Kilda opt for Christian Petracca or Paddy McCartin with its first pick? Who will pick-rich GWS go after inside the top ten? Will big men like Peter Wright and Hugh Goddard slide? Will we see a bolter in the form of Kyle Langford or Nakia Cockatoo?
Every predicted draft should come with the same disclaimer - that each pick is at best an educated guess, and nobody really knows anything for sure until the big night -but here is a best guess at the first round selections.
Be sure to return to Grandstand Online on Thursday night for our live blog of the 2014 draft, when we will find out just how close this phantom is.
