Noah Anderson 

Hayden Young

Matthew Rowell

all standouts and could easily be pick 1. 

Similar to Hodge, Ball, Judd year because you can easily choose either and be confident in your choice.

Well we currently hold pick 3 in the draft and by the looks of it we cannot trade it this year which is about bloody time in my opinion. With the likes of Lewis and Jones careers close to finishing up i feel we are in need of some fresh exciting talent to come through and take this club forward.

With the under 18s championships coming up, AFL.com have  done a list of players to look out for.

Few interesting ones. Kemp sounds like the new prototype 193cm midfielder. So he'll be right up there in all discussions.

I'd also be interested to see some of Flanders, Taheny, Serong and Williams. I'd love to see us use our first pick on a talented forward rather than just another midfielder. With some pace would be a bonus.

Kemp inability to win big number of the ball as a midfielder worries me though.

I also interested and will be keeping a close eye on those names you mentioned already.

Gee, Noah Anderson would be nice.

Do we have any decent academy prospects coming up?

Noah Anderson is the perfect fit for us. A complete mid with flair, pace, versatility and ability to hit the scoreboard regularly.

Sam Flanders = Fish Creek represent!!!

A shame Matt McGannon didn't come back to play for Fishy this year, instead heading on up to Redland in the NEAFL (we could do with his run off the HBF that's for sure - err that's FCFNC not MFC).

Rowell is probably the consensus #1 pick atm (god i hope we don't have it come the end of round 22). Agree that Anderson sounds very intriguing and at 86kgs he's just about ready to go.

1- Rowell 

2- Anderson 

lock it in

I still see the Demons getting 9 wins and 13 losses.  That’s 12th to 13 position. About pick 6 or 7. 

I reckon Dylan Williams would be a great young kid to get into our team. Hayden Young, Brodie Kemp, Sam Flanders are others likely to come under the JT Eye.

None of the kids in that article were even born last time we played off in a Grand Final.

I just had a read about 20 anticipated AFL young guns ?   He's one who sounds good to me.

Also that young ruck (Nick Bryan) , and another running midfielder (Dylan Stephens) who also sounded interesting.

Hayden Young

11/4/01
188cm/82kg
Vic Country/Dandenong Stingrays
Defender 

Young looked every bit the early pick at the MCG against the Casey Scorpions VFL side when he gathered 17 disposals and six marks in a polished performance. He has at times played in the midfield this year but looks most comfortable and is more damaging across half-back, where his vision, poise and precise kicking stands out. Young, whose brother Lachie made his debut recently with the Western Bulldogs, is a good size and considered a leader within his group.

 

Lachie Ash

21/6/01
186cm/80kg
Vic Country/Murray Bushrangers
Defender

Ash brings real speed to the draft crop. He's a line-breaker off half-back who is given the licence to thrill: he enjoys whipping the ball under his arm and taking the game forward. Ash doesn't run aimlessly – he's composed with the ball but adds plenty of excitement. Ash has played at senior level before – he won a country premiership with Shepparton last year – and finished second in the Murray Bushrangers' best and fairest last season.

 

Dylan Stephens

8/1/01
183cm/70kg
South Australia/Norwood
Midfielder

A strong engine, combined with a turn of pace and a classy left foot make Stephens one of the more desirable midfielders available. Stephens, who grew up in country Victoria before moving to South Australia for school, has played for Norwood at senior level this season but will take on more responsibility for SA's under-18 season. Models his game on Greater Western Sydney star Josh Kelly. 

 

Dylan Williams

1/7/01
185cm/79kg
Vic Metro/Oakleigh Chargers
Forward

Williams showed his talent last year for the Chargers when he booted 14 goals in their finals series. When in attack Williams is a threat in the air, where his marking is a real strength, and also on the ground, given his savviness near goal and sharp left foot. He has also been used across half-back, where his reading of the play comes to the fore, and at times in bursts through the midfield. If Williams is having a quiet day he will often find a way to impact a game, and he has genuine X-factor and ability. 

 

Caleb Serong

9/2/01
179cm/82kg
Vic Country/Gippsland Power
Forward/midfielder

Serong is a powerful small forward/midfielder who can influence a game in a number of ways. The talented cricketer is sharp at ground level and neat by foot, and is able to set up teammates with deft passes and clever ball use. He's crafty around goal, and when he's in the midfield has a burst of speed. Serong, who will co-captain Vic Country at the carnival, averaged 22 disposals and six tackles in his first two games of the NAB League season with Gippsland.

 

Nick Bryan

22/10/01
202cm/87kg
Vic Metro/Oakleigh Chargers
Ruckman

Has come from the clouds to be the best ruckman in the draft class by some way. Bryan's form early this season – he averaged 25 hit-outs a game in the first three rounds for the Chargers – saw him win selection in the Australian under-18s team to face VFL side Casey Scorpions in April. Although lightly framed, Bryan's strengths lie in being an extra midfielder around the ground. He has good skills and game sense, and can also provide a marking option. 

 

Thomson Dow

16/10/01
182cm/71kg
Vic Country/Bendigo Pioneers
Midfielder

The younger brother of Carlton's Paddy has taken the eye of recruiters this year. He is different to Paddy, playing a little bit taller and occasionally drifting forward to offer a target. Dow is lean but agile and with a burst, and started the season in strong form for the Pioneers, including a 28-disposal and two-goal effort against the Geelong Falcons in round one.

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    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

    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
