Paul Roos thinks the Suns should look at other options rather then early draft picks since it hasn’t worked so well for them in the past.

“If they keep going back to the draft the people up there should pull the shutters down and just give up, really,” Roos on Triple M.

“If that’s their strategy they might as well give it away… They’ve had 30-something first round draft picks and finished with four wins.

“They need to change their strategy.”

The former premiership coach gave his opinion on what they should do differently.

“Try and get players for Steven May. You try and get five or six really, really good AFL players that are competent,” he added.

“I mean Brandon Ellis is a classic example. What I’m saying is you get guys that are an older age, that wanna have a real crack at their footy, are not at risk of leaving.

“You get another four or five early draft picks, you’re either gonna sign them for four years when you don’t actually know they’re gonna be any good, or leave in two years time.

“It’s a flawed system and if they keep going back to that system they’ve only got themselves to blame if they only win four games next year.”

Is Roos right or should they go to the draft?
