Complete stab in the dark. Expect about 0 out of 4.

29 - Joel Garner (others Baker, Spargo, Hayes)

31 - Spargo (others Baker, MacPherson, Stoddart)

36 - Krueger (as a Cripps type mid) (others Baker, Petrucelle, someone no one's ever heard of)

47 - Baker (others Fritsch, Answerth, someone no one's ever heard of)

His height and intimidating physical presence would be to our advantage, but I think his age may not be in his favour.

Is there any love for Charlie Ballard? Looks like he'll be around for 36 and maybe 47. Interesting type. Tall midfielder who could fill out and be used in a range of roles. Doesn't lack toe and seems to use it pretty well. Anyone know about his attack on the contest and endurance?

I get wary of players whose main pros are tall and flexible.

I could be completely wrong, but I worry that translates to "pretty good for a bloke that size" (rather than just good anyway), and "not particularly amazing at any one role, so they move him around"

Could be a classic tweener.

I thought we might look at him as a slider until I read a comparison with Watts, in the 'lack of appetite for the contest' sense. Just a recollection of a random comment, not gospel.

Yes I think most will be scared off my Watts and Morton comparisons but one of these super tall mids will dominate the competition one day. Cripps plus three cms. Why not? That's why I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has seen him live. Is he hard at it? I like the way he moves in the highlights clip. Composed, moves well and seems to have neat skills.

Just went looking for Emma Quayle's phantom draft to discover that she is now a recruiter for the Giants! 

29. Garner

31. Jack Petrucelle

36. Coleman-Jones

47. Oskar Baker

I miss Emma Quayle's draft journalism and draft predictions. Not a lot of bs with her views.

Fox footy's predictions are a bloody decent return for us.

Spargo, Houlahan, Garner, Fritsch.

I think we have a very good hand to play here.

If we could come away with Hayes, Garner, Wooler and Fritsch, it would be a good draft. Bring in some more depth in the Ruck, HBF, KPF, and HFF and it would help improve our overall list.

I reckon that's bang on. Garner and Petrucelle are tipped to go around our mark, and suit our needs for outside pace and class. Coleman-Jones as a long-tam forward/ruck option, and Baker as another with pace but less rounded than the other two.

I hope Bailey lasts until our pick as I reckon he will develop into a really fine player and would love him in red and blue.

Think the only certainty is that Jason Taylor will call a name and we will all go who?

My realistic wishlist.

29  - Charlie Spargo 

31 -  Mathew Ling

36 - Tom De Konig 

47 - Trent Mynott

Zac Bailey would be a good fit but don't think he will be available.

Sorry Constable was the slider. Predicted top 8-12 selection and we passed him. ???

Spargo - yes.  But I had the choice of 5 available 

Fritsch - yes.  Cut off the Eagles

Petty - hmmm.  Tom McDonald type. Not sure. Prefer Hayes or Houlahan at 3rd pick

Baker - needed pace. He fits the bill. Though amazing that Garner went at 60
