Would love to get Clark from Wa but that may be a bit of a sore point at the moment.

I get the feeling Taylor has someone very specific in mind. If you look at the points value we drop by making this deal for pick 28.

I'm very interested to see who gets selected with this pick.

He would need Scully ankles to fall that far in the draft!!

Really think that we will pick up 2 Mids with our picks in the 20's. My guesses would be: Xavier O'Halloran, Ely Smith or Luke Valente. 

We might get another forward in the rookie draft, pre-season draft or a delisted player.

Scankles?

I think there would be a bit of skank in those ankles somewhere. Anyone who whores out for the dollars is a skank in my book!

If we land Valente that would be something else

I think it may be to do with the fact Toby Bedford is an academy prospect.

There's a chance someone would bid before pick 36, but unlikely before pick 28.

I actually think jye Caldwell is a chance to slide. Very talented kid but injury concerns at a young age may put some doubts in recruiters minds for the first round

I'd like us to get on the line to GWS.  Not sure if they have any high end academy players coming through next year, but maybe we can offer up next years 2nd in combination with one of our 2nd rd picks to get one of their three first rounders.

Would not only get us in the first round, but also give us the flexibility of trading our first round pick next year if we get involved with any of those high profile players coming out of contract (Kelly, Whitfield, Martin, etc.).

We've now got key defensive depth and a backup ruckman. Our tall forward stocks are lacking with Hogan and Pederson gone. It's TMac, Weid and Tim Smith. Others options like Frost have been tried forward with no success.

What tall forwards are in this draft outside of those top placed ones like the King bros and Lukocious? Are there options for us in the 20s? This area is now the need for our list.

I pray Butters doesn't get snapped up early. I also like the look of Clarke, Valente, Sturt and McHenry. If we could get Valente and McHenry with 23 and 28 we are in dream land

Jordan Clark will probably get picked by Eagles at pick 20 or 22.  He fits right there and is in the right mould for the Eagles.

Not for me. Valente likely for Crows at 16 or 21. 

McHenry is like a Spargo. Energy but light frame. Small. Goalkicking is average. I think at 23 and 28 there are better midfielders for us (O’Halloran ,Mckenzie ,Ely.Smith , Duursma)

We also can get Bedford who fits the small pacy forward with tackling pressure.

Bedford at 28 seems a bit high. 21 would be about right for Valente. Sturt and Duursma maybe our best bet.

Possibly we could draft late or perhaps rookie Hayden McLean (19yo from Sandringham VFL). Looked promising in 2017 under 18s year and developed again in 2018 versus vfl men. Needs to get more development but handy youngster who has the agility to play key forward. Josh Jenkins type.

Yes I didn’t mean Bedford at 28. He’ll probably get a nomination in the 40s so we will have the use pick 54 points. Or use pick 54 if he lasts. Either way we should draft Bedford so no need to get McHenry.

Who is better Munn or McLean? Where do you see Munn going?

What are your thoughts on Sturt and Duursma?

What are your thoughts on Marty Hore?

Bear with me a bit on this but I wanted to look at the academy impacts on this draft pick:

28 will be pushed out by Blakely, Tarran Thomas, Quaynor and maybe Rhylee West and Bailey Scott.

So pick 28 will become at least 31 and maybe even 33.

Where as pick 36 will be pushed out 3-5 spots but move back at least 1 for Blakely and possibly one for West.

If it's just the 3 picks my guess is we pick with 31 and the pick we gave up becomes 38.

Harder to work out what happens with 46 but it probably stays about the same.

Value wise that's not good for us but I'm sure it's about getting ahead of a bid for Bedford as well as the recruiters being more confident of landing a player in the early 30's than late 30's.
