As suggested in the Port Melbourne forum, Adrian Deluca was picked, going to Carlton.

VFL Draftees
Pick 21 - Alex Gilmour (Tasmania) to Richmond.
Pick 22 - Cameron Thurley (Tasmania) to Geelong.
Pick 51 - Matthew Ball (Box Hill) to Hawthorn.
Pick 58 - Ben Hudson (Werribee) to Adelaide.
Pick 72 - Adrian Deluca (Port Melbourne) to Carlton.
Pick 75 - Stephen Kenna (Box Hill) to Carlton.


Interesting to see that Aaron Davey who was probably the most heavily promoted VFL-listed player was not picked.

Maybe clubs are looking to rookie-list him as a "project-player" ?
