Nascent

The 2019 Draft and Trade Targets Thread

Recommended Posts

if papley was available, what's he worth? he's basically a first rotation midfielder at sydney at this point - has speed and nous around goal too

i imagine they'd want a future first round pick but there's no way known i'd want to give up that much for him, yet he's probably worth more than a second rounder

he would be a terrific addition to our mid / forward rotation, much as langdon would perfectly suit our half back run and spread from the contest

Papley would be a great get. Perfect may fits the modern game with his speed and skill level, isn’t afraid of getting hardball or working all the way up the ground either. He’s a tricky one to price in isolation. He’s worth more than a second rounder, but you’d be hard placed giving up a first rounder for him. Maybe it’s second rounder and a player for him, or first rounder for him and something else back.

Both him and Langdon suit us positionally and bring speed, which is the biggest weakness of our current list. Either would be a great get!

both papley and langdon are probably worth more than second rounders but not a first rounder - makes em hard to 'price' and probably difficult to get both in the one off-season

Re Sydney 'bottoming out'.  On OTC last night Roos said he was aware there were 2 outstanding players in the draft.

It made me think Sydney is positioning to get them: one with a very early pic and the other with an upgrade of a low 20's pic.  It may be a race to the bottom between them and Carlton.

Didn't WCE and Colllingwood do something similar at one stage?

Can’t recall anyone else doing it.

Nakia Cockatoo?  Injured, out of contract and possibly needing a change of scenery...

Has a lot of class and pace, but big questions on his body holding up and his ability to find the ball (never clocked up big numbers).

Geelong’s cap would have to be tight with all the players they’ve brought in.  His skill set, if he can get his body right, is exactly what we need.

Hunter Clark from StK. No 7 pick last  year. Having a form slump this year, possibly playing VFL this week. OOC at years end. Thoughts?

Jenkins and Carlton’s 2919 first round pick which Adelaide holds for our third rounder

Actually...no

Make it our fourth rounder

What about the mid-season draft, isn’t it on Monday? Our injuries to defenders mean we target one? Or it doesn’t matter at all?

No. We target a forward. We need goals!

Does anybody know who we may chose in the mid season draft?

And also have we gone cold on Koby Farmer?

Based on what info? He will be first chosen. Unless we are bottom of the ladder in two weeks, we are not getting him. I’d love a scent small forward, but think we have more immediate issues.

Carlton swapped their first round pick with Adelaide.

Oliver Eastland could be worth a punt but more long term than quick fix

Seen a bit to make me think he may develop into decent tall defender

Corey Gregson has been mentioned. Very injury prone previously though. Playing for Glenelg this year and apparently going ok.

Why on earth would the Club even think of recruiting another tall Defender when we have so many more pressing needs?

Lever, May, Frost, Oscar, Petty & even Keilty not enough???

List building is a continuing process and our needs specifically with the outside run won't be turned around with one mid season draft pick. Some wheeling and dealing at trade time is going to have to occur.

Omac - gone backwards needs to build confidence, may need a move and fresh start

Petty - not sure he'll be big enough but has time, lacks speed

Keilty - now playing as a forward but after 3 years do we have to make the call

Frost - ok but limited,  could end up being trade bait

Lever - great but need him to get an injury free run

May - as above

Eastland- shows the athleticism to play multiple roles. As i said it's a look ahead not the now. On what Ive seen he'll have a few chasing him in the draft come November.

    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
