Richmond goes into the draft with its best suite of picks in a couple of decades, and is ready to capitalise on that, as Tigers General Manager of Football Talent Blair Hartley explained . . .

“We are in a position where we want to replenish while we can contend . . . where we can get the best available talent,” Hartley said.

“We have some flexibility (to repackage picks) . . . to bundle them up or pick them where they are.

“We made the decision to trade into this draft.

“At the end of last year, we traded our first-round pick to take Geelong’s first round (in 2021), to give us those two picks in the first round.

“We are excited with who we might get . . .”

The Tigers have picks 7, 15, 26, 28, 38, 40 and 83 in the upcoming national draft.
