The 2019 Draft and Trade Targets Thread

Recommended Posts

Just now, whatwhatsaywhat said:

i'm very keen on bonar

big body and great burst speed

Agree if we give up 3, it’s likely to be 12, 14 and Bonar.  

Thats very appealing.

Connor Menadue should be a player we are seriously looking at!

Fantasy trade/draft pick wish list V2, if Laird is not on the trade table.

If P2: draft Anderson, Langdon (trading 2nd round), Tomlinson, Elliot:

If P3: split picks, draft Stephens and Weightman, the rest as above.

and if this rumour is true that we're after weightman (should we get pick 3 & split the pick with gws) what happens if he isn't there? we get stephens (a runner) and what other small forward type i wonder? there's a few options, but all not worth splitting the pick in my opinon. they'd better be damn sure that the first 13 or so clubs with picks don't want weightman either.

On the Road To The Draft Podcast this week, they said Weightman could go between 10-20. So he has been moving up the draft order. I would also like to know which news said we were looking at him yesterday too, I couldn’t find any mention. I think he is exactly what we need though. Please don’t draft another inside mid!

yeah i heard that podcast.. but surely a club is taking him before a tall that may not work out around the 10-15 range. he looks pretty good to go. we shall see, but seriously doubt the club would take him at 3 if we kept that, i reckon ash would be more of a chance

Matt Balmer's latest ranking of the top 30 prospects post NAB league prelim final. Rowell still at the top, but Anderson not far behind.  Weightman ranked 19. FWIW, if splitting the pick involves one of the picks falling beyond pick 14 or 15, I'd be ropable:

What if we were able to land Caldwell with those two first rounders from GWS? Would that change your view?

Freo will want one of them for Langdon pick 15 currently likely to get pushed back a few spots.

I like Caldwell, though he's not quite what we need in midfield. He can spread and play on the outside, but another whose game is focused on winning the ball on the inside.

It would be a decent trade in isolation, but should we just be taking one of Ash/Young/Stephens?

I'd still have some discomfort (admittedly lessened) even if Caldwell were added to the deal.

Fair enough mate. You know the kids a lot better than I do, so if you think Ash/Young/Stephens are where it's at, it's certainly worth thinking about.

Stretch has no trade value. He’s a third round pick who’s been injured and failed to crack a role at afl level. He’d be worth a token pick 70-80 to get him where he wants to go if he wants to leave.

Most of our depth like Wagner, JKH etc have no trade value either.

Agree. Stretch just does not have a single AFL level trait that sets him apart. Good endurance runner but doesn't cover the ground with speed. Poor kick, slight frame, average at everything else.

I reckon he is pretty good kick actually. His issue is that so often he holds the ball up and does not release straight away

we have 3 of those that are clogging our list, Stretch and ANB and JKH.. they have no redeeming features as player, Billy and ANB are good runners, but like you say average at best at the other very important facets of the game. to have them both on the list next season would be crazy, and i believe ANB has re-signed, so JKH and or Billy have to go, we have seen enough.

Is Lewis Taylor from Brisbane worth a look? He seems to have fallen out of favour up there?

yep, i think so, obviously for a packet of chips, but i think so, and i would swap a JKH for Lewis Taylor.. change of environments can do wonders for players.. why not, we should consider everyone.

Don't think Lewis Taylor will go for a packet of chips. IMO a late 2nd rounder, about mid 30s, would be around the mark.

He played 5 games all season and is OOC.

I'd be offering a 4th rounder for him.

    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

    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
