    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]After much drafting, bantering and calling for coaches to
    hurry up the first 20 rounds of the ORFFU draft have been completed. I shall
    preview the sides in reverse draft order:

    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]Started with pick 18, but made it clear from his first
    double pick that he won't let that be a disadvantage. The Armadillos look to be
    differing from the traditional pure mid lead instead choosing to have Will
    Minson at the helm. Daniel Cross and Bernie Vince playing for Melbourne this
    year could find new roles in Ararat. Also notable is 10 players under 22 so
    Ararat could become a strong side in years to come, for example Chad Wingard
    already averages 99. Is this a sign of things to come, maybe?

    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]The Prospectors have quite a strong side with 7 top 100
    players including JPK and Dean Cox. Added to that is ample ruck backup so as
    not to require strange positions. No players from this year's draft but some
    who proved themselves last year (O'Meara, Vlastuin, Wines). May be found
    wanting in the forward line with 4[span style='font-size: 16px;]th highest Tomlinson only
    averaging 66 last year but we'll see.

    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]A strong midfield setup with Conca and Bennell set to
    become the main midfields after O'Keefe retires. Harley Bennell himself already
    a proven player at 21 having averaged 97 points both of the past 2 years, and
    Kade Kolodjashnij taken pick 5 in this year's National Draft. All in all, there
    are some good potential players at Pearcedale.

    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]An interesting mix of players with the Smugglers, the
    first 2 selections were DPP(Martin + Dixon) , so I was actually a little
    surprised to find only 1 more DPP. 3 players returning from LTIs: Suckling,
    McIntosh and Morabito. The Smugglers also managed to fit Kurt Tippett into
    their budget and their rookie selection Dom Tyson should get a lot of game
    time.

    116 last year; also the Whalers have the oldest player selected with Boomer
    Harvey. The Whalers have also covered all 4 DPP positions and 2 top 10s from
    the 2014 draft (Boyd and Aish). But with the oldest side, the time is now!

    concern. With Tom Nicholls and Trent Cotchin set to add durability to the
    Barracudas I can see some great things coming.

    Collingwood duo Beams + Sidebottom who could very well be the next Swan +
    Pendles. With a forward line that will improve and trick those relying on 2013
    averages, and Mike Pyke in the ruck for now, the Parasites are not to be
    underestimated.

    [span style='line-height: 115%; font-size: 14pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif; color: #000000;]While deep in thought picking players, the team he
    finally settled on has the highest 2013 average with 9 top 100 players (only 4
    of those mids). The fact that Mick picked no players from the 2014 draft
    suggests the Blowflies are in it to win this year, and Sloane and Clarke add
    some durability for later.
