Former Richmond great Matthew Richardson has re-drafted the top 10 picks of the 2006 AFL draft on Sportsday.
Joel Selwood comes in at number one in Richo’s 2006 re-draft. The star Cat has played 296 games with three premierships to his name.
“You can’t go passed Joel Selwood at number one. Captain courageous, six-time All-Australian and three premierships for Joel.” Richardson said
Jack Riewoldt was the number two pick in Richo’s re-draft. The star forward has booted 634 goals and has been one of the best forwards of the modern era, helping lead Richmond to two of the last three premierships.
“I think Riewoldt is the smartest forward in the game. He’s kicked 630 goals now … He could get to 800 and we know that’s the mark!”
At number three in the re-draft is Power star Robbie Gray. Gray has played 219 games with the Power with 318 goals to his name and is one of the most exciting footballers in the game.
“A goal kicker, but also one of the great clearance players in the competition at number three.”
Rounding out Richardson’s top five is Sydney star Josh Kennedy and Geelong spearhead Tom Hawkins.
