With the dust now settled on the 2018 season, AFL.com.au looks at how Adelaide performed in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.

Pick 12: Darcy Fogarty 
Fogarty showcased his strong marking and ability to finish in front of goal across his 10 senior games in a promising debut season. His last game was in round 16, finishing the season in the SANFL where he played a variety of different roles, including in defence. Needs to work on his tank.

Pick 40: Andrew McPherson 
Sidelined with groin soreness at the start of the year, McPherson made his Crows' state league debut in June before suffering a season-ending hamstring injury against Sturt on July 1. He is on a modified training program but is expected to ramp up his training after the Christmas break.

Rookie selection pick 17: Patrick Wilson 
Mature-age recruit who had a stellar SANFL season, winning the Crows' state league club champion award, averaging 27 disposals per game. Played one AFL game and provides midfield depth.

 

Rookie selection pick 31: Cam Ellis-Yolmen 
Started strongly in his return from a torn ACL, playing the first 12 games of last season. The big-bodied midfielder finished with 15 games, enough to earn another rookie deal.

SEASON REVIEW: Cam Ellis-Yolmen

Rookie selection pick 38: Lachlan Murphy 
The small forward exceeded expectations to play 11 senior games in his first season. Retained on the rookie list, but will face competition from recruits Tyson Stengle, Shane McAdam and Ned McHenry.

WATCH: Murphy snags two in a minute

Rookie selection pick 41: Jackson Edwards 
Delisted after one season on the rookie list. The son of Crows great Tyson played 14 SANFL games and missed a month with a sprained ankle.
