84- Bombers Nick Hind 

85-Power  Levi Proude

86- kangas  Lachlan Sholl

87- Cats  Charlie Sprague 

88- Swans  Ryan Hebron

89- Giants  Mitch Maguire

90- Hawks Tom Lewis

I would have been impressed but (unless there are two players with the same name) you've got Mitch Maguire going to the Suns at pick 80 (in a previous post) and the Giants at 89.

Yes forgot to add late mail. Simington has impressed big time in 2018. Kept under wraps.  Will get drafted or rookied. I think Suns will use pick 80. Maguire likely to get late pick 89 to Giants

Just for interest - here is a list of the Academy and F/S players in the draft and where some pundits have them.

I've seen some mock drafts with North's Tarryn Thomas going in mid 1st round.

With all those 2nd round possibilities, I can see our pick #54 going up the draft to the low 40's and pick #62 up to the low 50's - pick #53 perhaps 🙂

I also missed Tom Medhat as Freo next gen player.

I like the look of Mitch Maguire mature age 20 yo NEAFL product. 

Zorko clone is their description, averaged 27 disposals and 7 clearances for the Canberra Demons.

The latest from Knighmare - phantom draft who I usually have a lot of time for but I don’t believe he’s thought this out very well - AFL Phantom Draft: Rounds 1, 2

His picks for Melbourne are:-

23. Melbourne Ned McHenry (VIC) Height, Weight: 176cm, 71kg

Profile: McHenry is this year's premier forward pressure specialist, leading the Under-18 Championships in tackles and pressure acts as a small forward. An elite endurance athlete, McHenry can also push up the wings.

28. Melbourne Sydney Stack (WA) Height, Weight: 177cm, 72kg

Profile: One of this draft's most exciting and impactful players. A prolific ball-winner and tackler who hits the ball at speed and accelerates away.

As well as those profiles read, I can’t see us taking two smalls with these picks given that we have Charlie Spargo, Jeff Garlett and Jay Kennedy Harris and will at least be considering taking Toby Bedford further down the line in the draft as a NGA player. 

Here is his assessment of Bedford ~

Melbourne *bid on Bedford likely to come 30-50
Toby Bedford (VIC - Melbourne Next Generation Academy)
Height, Weight: 
176cm, 65kg
Profile: Line breaker who often runs the ball 30m at speed before disposing of the ball. Prolific tackler with his application of forward pressure among the best in the draft.

Knightmare would therefore have us picking three players between 172 & 176cm. with our first three draft selections. I don’t think so.

considering Garlett and JKH are on their last legs id say its the perfect draft strategy and grab a tall late/in the rookie to work on and she'll be right

Refer 23 and 28 thread. 

Mchenry and Stack - not to us at these picks  

Wasted choices given the talent available at each pick

Based on the Knightmare (Chris Doerre) choices, for me it’s 

23 - Bailey Williams (or Ely Smith) 

28- Tom McKenzie

Need to pick a quick outside mid and another tall in our first two picks in my opinion .

Surely we’d pick the best available players at 23 and 28, and if they happen to be a”fast outside mid and another tall” then great. But no use choosing them if they are not the best available IMO

Yep, draft best available and trade for need.

Fraser Turner is very good. Very good. I had him around 32-35 but he appeals as a pacy outside wingman. Others however preferred at 23 & 28.

My personal ratings would be

Lukosius a bit lower, he’s definitely talented but I just don’t think he’s a genuine power forward. Plays a bit too much like jack watts and maybe I’m a bit scarred 

Izak Rankine I have on par with Walsh as the best players in the draft. He was seriously damaging.

bailey smith is interesting because he could easily play half back or mid, I think he’s got potential to be the best player in the draft if he gets the balance right. 

Ive mentioned elsewhere I think Jye Caldwell has the talent to be a top 6 pick but the types of injuries he’s getting so early is a real concern... he’s an outside chance to slip through to our 23 though unlikely. 

The king brothers are interesting because I think the only way an interstate team drafts them is if they can get both. 

Phantom top 5. 

1. Sam Walsh 

2. Max king 

3. Ben king 

4. Bailey smith 

5. Jack Lukosius 

Can see a couple of the SA boys sliding a bit. I reckon the Gold Coast would be a better chance of retaining the king brothers than the SA boys. 

Can’t see Ben King going at 3.   Not the same player Max is. 

If GC keep their picks, I believe they will take Lukosius and Rozee.  They are best buds and more of a chance of keeping them long term.

There's just as much chance of Ben and Max King coming back to Victoria as there is of Lukosius/Rozee/Rankine heading back to SA.

On that basis i'd pick the SA pair, and if need be trade them to Adelaide just cr@p all over PA's chest beating.

Based on highlights package there are those that statements say have pace and then there is Fraser Turner whose footage actually shows some serious toe.

Still pondering 91. The 100-1 shot. 

Obviously need to see how many picks we will use. Waiting until we see which potential delisted free agents we may sign.  

If we get O’Halloran, Duursma, Ayton-Delaney, Bedford, we would have got the pace and run, so we need some height.  

Some older types for ruck/fwd options would be Matt Hammelmann (Redland) 21 yo or ruckman Lachlan Waddell (Old Scotch) 22 yo. , though both could be rookie options
