Collingwood's head recruiter runs the ruler over the four players chosen during Friday's National Draft.

Selection No.30 – Sam McLarty
Derek Hine says:
"We had a couple of boys pegged there as key defender types. Sam hurt his shoulder halfway through the year, but he's shown, at 197cm, he can play forward, back and he's extremely athletic and a high-end competitor."

Selection No.35 – Callum Brown
Derek Hine says:
"I was hoping one (a bid) wasn't going to come, but I was expecting one. I thought North might have been the problem, but it didn't really matter in the end. He's a consistent performer and we knew what we were getting when we took him."

Selection No.50 – Kayle Kirby
Derek Hine says:
"Kayle is coming from a little bit behind but he brings that high-end speed and physicality to our front half. It will be interesting to see how he goes. We're in the futures market so he'll be OK I'm sure."

Selection No.57 – Josh Daicos
Derek Hine says:
"Josh is a clever small forward with plenty of tricks around goal. It was great to finally select him and Callum (Brown) together. He was coming from a little bit behind, having elected to play school football, but that's all part of the futures market again."

The wrap up
Collingwood finally got its hands on two sons of guns, selecting Callum Brown and Josh Daicos in the National Draft.

North Melbourne placed a bid on Brown, the son of three-time club champion Gavin, with pick No. 35 but the Magpies quickly matched and he officially joined the club his famous father once captained.

Magpies list manager Derek Hine followed up his selection of Brown by claiming Josh Daicos, the son of five-time club leading goal kicker Peter, with pick No.57.

"It's very important to note that we rate them in the draft, we rate them where they sit in the scheme of things and they probably both fell where the market dictated they'd be," Hine told AFL Media.

"They both bring different things to the table and now the hard work begins."

Brown, an under-18 All Australian after averaging 19 disposals across the national championships, is an accumulator of the footy in the midfield.

At 177cm, the Eastern Ranges product regularly finds the footy and makes smart choices with his disposal.

A late bloomer, Josh Daicos failed to make the Oakleigh Chargers' list as a bottom-age player in 2015.

But he bounced back to make the list in 2016, displaying snippets of his talent throughout the TAC Cup season.

The 177cm small forward played three games for Vic Metro in the mid-year championships but finished the season with a rush and gathered 18 touches in the All Stars game.

Both Brown and Daicos played junior football with and against each other, while their families remain close, given Gavin Brown and Peter Daicos were Collingwood premiership teammates in 1990.

Having now been drafted by the Magpies, it is over to Callum Brown and Josh Daicos to follow in the footsteps of their famous fathers and create their own history at the club.

The Magpies took key defender Sam McLarty with their first pick in the draft (No.30 overall) and added exciting forward Kayle Kirby – a Richmond Next Generation academy player – with pick No.50.
