Bit of X-factor there. 

If we could nab one (or both) of the Xav’s, I’d be very happy. They aren’t the bollocking bulls of the first round but they have great kicking and speed and have played outside inside role. What we need - and hopefully they can provide it.

Uncanny isn’t it...

They could be a real force...

Top 10 now worth more interest to Demons fans if we get 1 or 2 with the probable Hogan deal  

heres some names 

1- Sam Walsh

2- Jack Lukosius 

3- Izak Rankine

4- Bailey Smith

5- Max King

6- Jack Bytel

7- Ben King

8- Conor Rozee

9- Riley Collier-Dawkins

10- Curtis Taylor

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.

The more I think about Gold Coast the more I think they need midfielders. They have none and they have key forwards if they stay fit in Day and Wright. so my top 10 would be.

Walsh - A certainty to go 1.

Rankine - Best midfielder

B.Smith - 2nd best midfielder

Lukosius - Too hard to pass up.

Rozee - Local product

Caldwell - Another gun midfielder

B.King - Cos he hasn't done his knee

Hately - Local product

M.King - Patton hasn't worked.

Valente - Local product

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

image.png.a42a81abb8e48d640aa7bedd42125ef9.png

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've said this before but seriously they need to can this academy idea.

It makes sense in the non football states if they draw the boundaries correctly and not include strong football areas like Southern NSW.

Other clubs shouldn't have academies it's just another half pregnant  AFL solution to stop a few F...W.... complaining.

The best thing about this draft is we already have a strong 22 with 6 decent players as depth.

If we could snag a player ready for2019 would be great. Seems like a zippy small forward and another outsidemid with speed & skill would complement the list.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    If there was ever a prime example of a team of players not ready for the new football season it was Melbourne in the opening round of 2019.   Throughout the field there was just too much evidence of players who haven’t had sufficient pre-season or players who ordinarily wouldn’t have even graced the field at this early stage.   The Demons also got a lesson on selection with Port Adelaide showing that two ruckmen on the field is an essential for this season.  It was a lesson that should

    THE WELCOME GAME by Whispering Jack

    The Melbourne Football Club has moved forward in leaps and bounds since it last met Port Adelaide in a totally forgettable (for Demon fans) season opener on the MCG.  That game, played on Sunday, 31 March, 2013 before a crowd of 22,924, was supposed to be a close encounter between two of the competition’s lesser lights from the previous season when the Power had finished 14th and the Demons 16th (ahead only of AFL newbies Gold Coast and GWS). It turned into a slaughter with Port taking the

    THE WALKING WOUNDED by Paddy Gosch

    Forget the fact that Melbourne narrowly missed out on getting the four JLT points on offer for a second consecutive week and the blow to the ego of a supposed top four contender losing ... well almost at home ... to a team that has recently dwelt in the AFL cellar and won a mere five games in 2018. The things that emerged from the horror final JLT outing was that the Demons are a long way from being prepared to take on the rigours of a long tough season in which they have one of the hardest fixt

    PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons have named a star studded line up in it’s final practice match before the season proper. They take on the emerging Brisbane Lions out at Casey which is the second of three matches at the ground on Saturday. Many of the Dees best 22 have been recalled including Vice Captains Max Gawn and Neville Jetta whilst Captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney will play restricted minutes in the VFL curtain raiser. Former Gold Coast co-captain Steven May will play his first official game for Melb

    HIT OUT by Paddy Gosch

    As far as preseason hit outs go, the Demons’ first JLT Community Series fixture against the Tigers in the blistering heat at Shepparton, was instructive of a number of things but not really conclusive as to how each team will fare in the regular season against the competition's big guns (which includes against each other). That’s the way these practice match hit outs go. Neither of the teams was at full strength, particularly Melbourne but if you were looking for the reason for the 12 point

    HOT OUT OF THE CITY by Paddy Gosch

    The Dees travel out of the city for game one of two JLT Community Series practice matches before the season proper. Our first match takes us to the floodplains of the Goldburn River in Northern Victoria to the city of Shepparton. We take on the Tigers for the first of at least 3 encounters with the 2017 Premiers this year. The game will be played in scorching temperatures so expect plenty of rotations, ice vests, fans running overtime and extra water carriers. The Demons are coming off a wi

    GAME, SET & SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    I always believe in starting off any report by accentuating the positive and in that regard, as at the time of writing, the Demons have not reported any injuries so that’s my major positive from today’s practice game v the Magpies (albeit that we know the club is somewhat lax in reporting these things so my best wishes go out if any of today’s participants are in intensive care at the Alfred).  Another positive was that Razor Ray performed his umpiring duties admirably which is more than I

    SCRATCH by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons are set to take on the old enemy Collingwood in a good old fashioned Scratch Match on Friday Morning. It is unknown what form the match will take, how many quarters there will be, their length, the amount of rotations or even whether they'll keep score. One thing we do know for sure is that both coaching staffs will be keeping their cards close to their chests to ensure neither will glean too much from their competition. The Dees will likely be without some of their stars as Tom

    IMAGINE by Whispering Jack

    The Demons made their official return to the training track for 2019 on a sunny Saturday morning at Goschs Paddock with most of the interest initially centred on a small patch of ground in one of the pockets where the rehab group was going through the paces. Some good pieces of news on that score. The  rehab group is considerably smaller than it was prior to the Christmas break with Christian Petracca (knee), James Harmes (shoulder), Jayden Hunt (shoulder), Neville Jetta (shoulder), Oscar M
