Clem Smith, a rebounding back pocket type player, hard at the ball with good evasive skills and a precise kick. Likened to Byron Picket, although I see a lot of Leon Davis in him. Expected to go between 25 and 45, the Blues picked him up at pick 60!
OK, so he's a midget at 177 cm but he was an All Australian last year so he can obviously play.
Just my opinion but this kid could be the steal of the draft.

Cheers.

I prefer to think our boys Maynard and Abbott will end up being the steals of the draft.

Smith fell down the order due to the knock on his kicking during actual matches (tested well) and more importantly concerns over his fitness and commitment levels.

He might shape up now and become a very good player but he didn't suit our requirements this draft at his height and with those queries.

It'll take a good 3 to 4 years most likely before we have any real idea which players were the steals of this draft anyway so until then it's all conjecture.

Ha if he was that bad we would have picked him. Why are we discussing a scum player anyway?. He is now nothing to me.

I don't know about that. I was prepared to claim Tom Langdon as the "steal" of last year's draft well before his first season was over. You don't get that many pick #65s who play 19 games in their first season.
