The 2013 National Draft saw the Giants hold the opening selections of the count for the third-straight season, with Tom Boyd headlining the crop of prospects after joining the league's youngest side.

While Boyd only played the one season in the orange and charcoal, the Giants' draft class was bolstered by selections later on the board, with their Pick 2 selection in Josh Kelly looking to be as fruitful as any.

While they'll be happy to still have Kelly calling the Harbour City home, an extensive list of eventual AFL superstars were also on offer.

We take a look at that draft eight years on and re-select what we feel is the top 10 from 2013. 

Original top 10 of the 2013 National Draft:

  1. Tom Boyd (GWS)
  2. Josh Kelly (GWS)
  3. Jack Billings (St Kilda)
  4. Marcus Bontempelli (Western Bulldogs)
  5. Kade Kolodjashnij (Gold Coast Suns)
  6. Matthew Scharenberg (Collingwood)
  7. James Aish (Brisbane Lions)
  8. Luke McDonald (North Melbourne)
  9. Christian Salem (Melbourne)
  10. Nathan Freeman (Collingwood)


8. Dom Sheed (Originally: Pick 11, West Coast Eagles)

Sheed, a proven ball-winner at the coalface, climbed three spots in our re-draft. 

The 2018 premiership game-winner has become an integral part of West Coast's midfield unit, despite the numerous household names at the Eagles (such as Luke Shuey, Tim Kelly, Elliott Yeo and Andrew Gaff).  

Sheed's 26.2 disposals per game in 2021 was just shy of his career-high 26.5 in 2019 when he also ranked 10th in the league in total inside 50s.
