    Back in July, I reordered the top ten of the 1999 AFL draft. Now I am reordering pick 11-20.

    Pick 1 – Jonathan Brown – Collingwood (Originally Josh Fraser)
    Pick 2 – Matthew Pavlich – Fremantle (Originally Paul Hasleby)
    Pick 3 – Dean Cox – Richmond (Originally Aaron Fiora)

    Pick 5 – Joel Corey – Fremantle (Originally Leigh Brown)

    Pick 10 – Stephen Milne – Hawthorn (Originally Luke McPharlin)

    Pick 11 – Luke McPharlin – West Coast (Originally Darren Glass)
    McPharlin was part of a historic trade that sent him and Trent Croad from Hawthorn to Fremantle for pick 1, 20 and 36. The picks then became Luke Hodge, Daniel Elstone, and Sam Mitchell, with two of them becoming future captains and champions of the Hawthorn Football Club.

    To make up for that massive trade mistake by the Dockers, McPharlin became a legend for the club. He was originally drafted with pick 10, playing 256 games – 12 for Hawthorn and 244 for Fremantle – and kicking 115 goals – three for Hawthorn and 112 for Fremantle.

    He is a one-time Mark of the Year winner and one-time All-Australian.

    Pick 12 – Rhyce Shaw – Port Adelaide (Originally Paul Koulouriotis)
    Shaw was a fantastic rebounding defender for the Swans and Pies over a 16-year career. He was originally taken with pick 18, playing 237 games – 94 for Collingwood and 143 for Sydney – and kicking 44 goals – 20 for Collingwood and 24 for Sydney.

    Pick 13 – Daniel Giansiracusa – Western Bulldogs (Originally Robert Murphy)
    Giansiracusa was a magnificent forward over a 14 year career. He was originally selected with pick 32, playing 265 games and kicking 331 goals.

    Green was one of the best players alongside Nathan Jones in a period of struggle for the Demons. He was originally drafted with pick 19, playing 254 games and kicking 350 games.

    He is a one-time club best and fairest, one-time club leading goalkicker, three-time International Rules representative for Australia, and the Melbourne Football Club captain for a year.

    Pick 15 – Paul Hasleby – Geelong (Originally David Spriggs)
    Hasleby was a solid midfielder for the Dockers over 11 years. He was originally taken with pick two, playing 208 games and kicking 131 goals.

    He is a one-time Larke Medallist, two-time Geoff Christian Medallist, one-time Ron Evans Medallist, one-time International Rules Representative for Australia, one-time All-Australian, and four-time Ross Glendinning Medallist.

    He is a one-time Goal of the Year winner and two-time All-Australian. He also received a premiership medallion for his part in the 2010 drawn grand final.

    Pick 19 –Cameron Bruce – Melbourne (Originally Brad Green)
    Bruce, currently an assistant coach at the Blues, was a versatile player over his 13-year career with the Dees and Hawks. He was originally selected with pick 64, playing 234 games – 224 for Melbourne and ten for Hawthorn – and kicking 211 goals – 210 for Melbourne and one for Hawthorn.

    He is a one-time club best and fairest, two-time International Rules Representative for Australia, and the Melbourne Football Club captain for one year.
