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

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.

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.

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. 

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

    THANKS BUT NO THANKS by George on the Outer

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place. It was a disgraceful performance, which started with a disgracefu

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September? As a consequence, the person re

    A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by KC from Casey

    Two clubs that have been hard hit by injury recently took part in a dour battle under dark clouds and, with intermittent showers falling, it wasn’t a pretty game at Victoria Park on Sunday. Despite all that, the Casey Demons added a little ray of sunshine to their day to get the job done over a "traditional" rival with a 15 point victory over Collingwood VFL that breathed life back into their season. There were a few highlights at the ground that in past days has seen many titanic batt

    THE RETRO ROUND by George on the Outer

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for. We will be good in parts but really the season is well over so we will have to put up with those bell

    WHAT, NO BLOOD? by George on the Outer

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur. There are 100,000 Richmond members and 50,000 Melbourne members, and despite the fact that it turned out to be a wet night after half-time, a crowd of only 37K bothered to turn up. That should never have happ

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range

    THAT’S FOOTBALL by Whispering Jack

    As the season rolls on towards the finals and the football world witnesses the aftermath of the sacking of the league’s unsuccessful coaches, it’s almost  inevitable that the spotlight will turn firmly upon the complete and utter failure of season 2019 - the Melbourne Football Club.  For a team that finished in fourth place last year and was heavily touted as a premiership contender, the fall from grace has been dramatic. As things stand, the Demons look certain to finish 13 places down on

    THE MOMENT OF TRUTH IS COMING by KC from Casey

    At half time in Sunday’s game at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, things weren’t looking too flash for the flailing finals prospects of the Casey Demons. Key forward Sam Weideman had suffered a concussion in his first contest and, with a few exceptions, the team was playing like a rabble rather than a finals contender. The Demons were 23 points in arrears to the Zebras and their season was headed towards oblivion. It was the skipper Mitch White who spurred his team on by word and by deed - he fini

    RIPPING THE HEART OUT by George on the Outer

    And BOG for St. Kilda in last night’s game at Marvel Stadium? It was Melbourne!  This brilliant contributor managed to be the initiator of 13.7 in turnovers for the side, and resulted in a come from behind victory for the mighty Saints. That’s it folks, Melbourne have set a new record for the most turnovers resulting in opposition scores. Despite leading half way through the final quarter (yet again) the Demons managed to right themselves and deliver the ball directly to the opposition

    It’s a crying shame that we happen to be playing against the resurgent St Kilda just as they have managed to overcome a rotten patch of form with an upsurge in momentum resulting from the sacking of its coach and the appointment of a new one.    The Saints had a purple patch at the start of the season winning four of their first five games (including the one against the sloppy and sluggish Demons in Round 5) before collapsing into the sink hole that led to them parting ways with coach Alan

    RED AND BLUEPRINT 2019 by Whispering Jack

    The rusty red of the McDonnell Ranges and the blue skies above them provided the perfect backdrop that summed up everything about the Melbourne Football Club’s 2019 season. It set out the perfect red and blueprint for the club’s horror year. The club’s previous season was one of great promise but it ended in a calamitous way in Perth with an 11 goal defeat at the hands of the ultimate premiership side, the West Coast Eagles in a game where the Demons’ first goal came early in the third quar
