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!

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

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.

    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

    WINDY DAY FOOTY by KC from Casey

    Windy day footy has always been the domain of those who play the game hard: on days when the breeze gusts all over the place and the ground has been sodden by recent rains, the player needs to get all aspects of his game together and be hard of body and mind, to concentrate and attack the football. The Casey Demons came out on their own deck in such conditions and under a mainly sunny sky and gave it a crack for half a game but they lost sight of the fundamentals of playing hard in difficul

    TRECIMATED by George on the Outer

    A little more than two months have passed since Melbourne met and came close to beating the reigning premier West Coast in the preliminary final replay over in the West. At the time, the Demons had three wins on the board and now, nine rounds later and going into this week’s match, they have managed to add a paltry two more wins to the ledger.  The Eagles, in contrast, have moved to within percentage of second spot on the ladder despite their loss at home this week against Collingwood.

    SAME STORY, DIFFERENT SONG by George on the Outer

    Melbourne was still suffering from the same old story - a lack of AFL capable players from which to choose at the selection table - and the Western Bulldogs got to sing their song again. But wait, that wasn’t the Doggie’s song we’ve been hearing for the last 30 years, it was some other concoction and no-one knew the words to it but whatever it was, they got to mumble it with gusto after a huge 8 point win! The sad thing is that the Bulldogs (or Footscray or whatever they choose to call

    DOGGED by KC from Casey

    On Sunday, the Casey Demons met the Footscray VFL under the roof at the same venue where their nemesis took them down in the 2017 grand final and the result left them with the same feeling of disappointment - this time with a seven point defeat that ended the club’s four game winning streak and made things a lot harder in terms of playing in this year’s final series.   And, as has so often happened this year, the Demons let the game get away from them with but failing to take advantage of th

    BARKING MAD by The Oracle

    There was so much hype proliferating about Melbourne’s prospects for season 2019 a mere four months ago, that one could be forgiven for thinking anyone contemplating the prospect of a bottom four finish for the Demons at the time was barking mad. That however, is the prospect that they face at the moment and a loss to the Bulldogs on Sunday would make it a virtual certainty.  The club’s downward spiral after several years of moving steadily on an upward trajectory has been well documented i

    THE MELBOURNE WAY by George on the Outer

    Much has been made by the coaching staff of playing a “Melbourne way” style of play. The nail-biting finish by the Demons in the dying minute of the game could not have been any more the case in point.   Leading by a game-high 38 points late in the third quarter, and by five goals at the final change, this should have been the catalyst for a romp home to an easy win.   But that is not the “Melbourne way” and the supporters, especially those with a severe case of MFCSS (aka intense inse

    PINK AND BLUE CAN’T KICK TRUE by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons took on the Northern Blues at home on Saturday  in a game that was crucial in terms of their hopes for September and they took away the valuable four points on offer after some worrying moments. Most of those worries were self-inflicted as a result of some shocking inaccuracy in front of goal, sloppiness in play and a little bit of indiscipline that all combined to make the game a lot closer than it should have been. The final scoreboard showed the Demons winning the P

    GO FIGURE by Sam the Stats Man

    In May last year, a rampant Melbourne side demolished Carlton by 109 points at the MCG. The Demons did as they pleased and ran rings against a young, abysmal Blues combination. The Dees led in virtually every key performance indicator, notably entering the inside 50 metre mark 63 times to 33 and the superiority of their attack was highlighted by a 74% shooting accuracy rate (to 47%).  A little more than a year later the two sides face each other for the first time since that rout and the ta

    GORN AT THE GABBA by George on The Outer

    With Melbourne leading the Brisbane Lions in the second term, and the game in the balance, a Max Gawn ankle injury signalled that the Demons were as good as gorrnnn for the match. Without a suitable 2nd ruck and (once again) forced to use either Tom McDonald, Tim Smith or Sam Weidemann in the ruck the Demons found themselves without a forward line that could kick a winning score. Not that anything really changed, as the forward line has been completely dysfunctional all season and one

    GAMBIT by KC from Casey

    The opening gambit of Saturday afternoon’s game told us everything about who would be its main players and who would come out on top. The Casey Demons were eager to turn the tables on the Box Hill Hawks who beat them in last year’s grand final and then gave them a first up mauling at City Oval, Box Hill. Kicking with the aid of a strong breeze in the opening term, Braydon Preuss’ first hit out went straight to the diminutive Jay Kennedy Harris who pounced with a 70 metre shot at goal that sailed

    MURDER BY NUMBERS by Sam the Stats Man

    The respective ladder positions of this week’s combatants tell the story of one side on the rise and the other in steep decline. Since their most recent meeting which took place early last year, the Dees and the Lions have changed positions. They are opposed to each again on the former’s home turf with the locals in fine fettle after blowing St Kilda off the park at Marvel Stadium.  The Lions’ home ground advantage has been a major consideration so far this year. They have won five out of s
