If we do split the pick 3 ( assuming GC get handed pick 1 and 2) with GWS into two mid first rounders. I think alot of the real top rated draft prospects may be gone by that stage.
The lowest picks we would receive would be pick 13 and 15 as GC get pick 2 and GWS essentially get picks 3 and 4 (assuming early bid for Tom Green ) already our mid first rounders from GWS would be pushed down 2 places each.
Also it is possible that GWS and Essendon progress past week one in the finals, so would we do that deal if say we got pick 15 and 17
where is the point that we say those picks are too late for us to split the pick ?
We would hopefully push for a valuable player to go along with those picks ( eg Tomlinson, Daniels, Bonar, Caldwell, Patton perhaps ?)
If we ended up with picks 13 and 15, people talk about Kemp, Stephens, McCasey or Flanders as possible mid round prospects but i fear they may be gone by that stage of the draft

For people that keep an eye on draft prospects , would you be happy with the talent potentially available at our picks if we down grade?
