The 2015 National Draft saw the Blues hold the opening pick in what has turned out to be a very successful draft for the club.
Whilst the 2015 Draft may not have as many superstars as some others, 19 of the top 20 picks have made it to 50 games with Sam Weideman the only exception on 49.
Once Weideman reaches this milestone, it will be the first time in AFL history where all top 20 picks will have played 50 games or more.
We take a look at the 2015 draft six years on and redraft the top 10 selections.
Original Top 10 of the 2015 AFL Draft:
- Jacob Weitering (Carlton)
- Josh Schache (Western Bulldogs)
- Callum Mills (Sydney)
- Clayton Oliver (Melbourne)
- Darcy Parish (Essendon)
- Aaron Francis (Essendon)
- Jacob Hopper (GWS)
- Callum Ah Chee (Gold Coast)
- Sam Weideman (Melbourne)
- Harry McKay (Carlton)
9. Eric Hipwood
(Originally: Pick 14, Brisbane Lions)
Often compared to the likes of Buddy Franklin and Joe Daniher due to his athleticism and penetrating left foot, Hipwood has consistently shown his ability to impact games.
So far, the 24-year-old has kicked 163 goals in 110 games for the Lions with an average of 1.5 goals a game. Unfortunately, Hipwood suffered an ACL injury in July to put a premature end to his season.
This injury is likely to keep the big forward out for the majority of the 2022 season as well.
