Please feel free to list all the experts who had Fritsch in the top 40. I mean you're welcome to shoot from the hip like that, but it works better if you have something to back it up.

That's just my point, these so called "experts" don't have too much of a clue either, as no-one can predict the future (if they did, then there'd be no gems from late in the draft and tonnes of success stories from early on).

It is still very much a gamble, which is why i find it odd just how valuable some clubs place value on high picks. Give me trades of good player's of a known quantity over an unknown (albeit highly rated) quantity any day of the week.

We're essentially in agreement then, as that too is also my point. While some clubs/people may rate a certain player (Lockhart for example) around Pick 60, us and some other clubs may see him around Pick 25.

What I do know is that Rawlings rates him very highly.

Is this the guy with dreadlocks who completely disappeared in the VFL finals?

You're thinking of Hutchins.

Different types of players. Johnstone is more defensive and contested, Lockhart plays higher up the ground and gets more of the ball. No issue having 2 smaller defenders developing on the list if they are both wanted. We've got the list spots to balance the list with a number of needs type picks but also to take some developmental prospects no matter what position they play.

The luxury position is that both Johnstone and Lockhart are kept, developed, exposed. Immense value for Casey, potential value for the big league team in the near future. Several roles may well exist for both, in both teams -  both tough at the football.

Dion Johnstone was delisted.

I think a few people in here think that we will pick him up on the rookie list.

Well he certainly was delisted at an odd time just before trade week and adding to a long list. 

I’m struggling to get a read on what we are going to do with the last few on the list...

In a strong draft no way will he go in the top 60, last years draft was a every even draft, if we use either second round pick  that's not something taylor would  do, that's what BP would do, like  picking gysberts when he would still have been available in the second round.

Thoughts on Lockhart not getting drafted? I personally think he was worth a late rookie pick and think he has more potential than corey wagner but interested in others opinions

I think his finals performances hurt him. Really had no impact whatsoever while Wagner was consistent all year.

Really surprised Jay didn’t get rookied, he probably tired out towards the end of the season but some of the games he played this year were outstanding.

Hopefully another year developing in the VFL will do him good and he gets a shot at it.

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w
