St Kilda's draft history, 2005 - 2009

  • St Kilda's draft history, 2005 - 2009

St Kilda's recruitment under the care of both Grant Thomas (in his final years as coach) and Ross Lyon will go down as one of the worst drafting periods in history.

Out of the 22 players drafted between 2005 and 2009, only three remain at the Saints. From the remaining 19, only three have found homes at other clubs.

Despite failing to keep the majority of these players, the ones who have stayed (David Armitage, Jack Steven and Sam Gilbert) are regarded as some of the best players for the Saints in recent memory.
