1998 Rookie List        

1998 Rookie List

Carlton first foray into the Rookie Draft proved successful in 1997 with the selection and ultimate elevation of Mark Porter. The Blues had a clean list for the 1998 Rookie Draft and made 6 selections:

Pick 6 : Simon Fletcher, Geelong Reserves / Geelong Falcons
Pick 22 : Damian Lang, Port Adelaide Magpies / Swans / Leeton NSW
Pick 35 : Scott Freeborn, Port Adelaide Magpies
Pick 45: Shane Flynn, Hawthorn Supplementary List / Eastern Rangers
Pick 53: Cameron Blight, Tassie Mariners / Devonport
Pick 58: Clint Evans, Dandenong Stingrays U18s

Damian Lang would debut in 1998, but be re-rookied in the 1999 Rookie List. Freeborn was elevated for the 1999 Season, with Fletcher and Blight retained for 1999.

NB Please note that for the purposes of the Blueseum, we have called the Rookie Draft at the end of the 1997 year, the 1998 Rookie Draft, given that Draft provided rookies for the 1997 playing year.
