Tom Browne reported this morning that draft bolter Cody Weightman is being considered by St  Kilda at pick 6 but also Dees with our first pick.

177cm All Australian electrifying small forward who plays for Dandenong Stingrays.

Obviously the theme for us during the draft will be small forwards and outside players.

Yes we need a small forward, and pace and flair and skill.  There is no boom recruit on the list developing nicely, no back up talls.

Last year we drafted short...we need everything except inside mids...

He’s a good small forward, but doubt he’s worth pick 3. Late first round early second round I’d have thought.

I know we need small forwards, but you draft on talent not need so early in the draft. If we used pick 2-3 on him, I’d seriously question the recruiting staff.

Weightman is a Spargo like player.  Not the 200+ gamer that is the top 10 aim. 

I would rate 20 youngsters well before Weightman.

JT would be a lunatic to pick him at 3. 

 

Spargo cant jump/leap or take a grab.

Waaayyyy faster than Spargo, kicks goals, and isn't as short. They both have blonde hair though?

This comment just proved that you have not watched Weightman in the flesh live and only going off what you read on Bigfooty draft boards.

I shall and won't explain any further only to say that Weightman is a completely different player to Spargo. And this coming from someone who had a lot to do with Charlie when he was coming through our development squad in the Murray Bushrangers program.

So DD36 would you advocate us taking him with our first pick? possibly at 3?

No.

But it shows the type of payers we will be looking at. Small forwards and outside runners. Weightman obviously fits that bill.

Thanks mate,  good to have your expertise on these things, as im not an avid u/18 watcher, but its clearly a need for us and he might be a good pick if we split our first pick, would you take him at pick 14 if he is there?

This is my exact thought.  If we do split our pick into the teens then i think we will definitely consider Weightman.

For pick 3 i would be looking at either Hayden Young or Sam Flanders. I had Lachie Ash alongside Young, but have changed as i still feel he needs a good body of work if he is to push up to a midfield role. Have a feeling he will drop a couple of spots.

Flanders is pushing himself really hard into top 5 contention. Keep an eye on him.

177cm hardly makes him tall, would call that short by AFL standards unless he's had a sudden growth spurt.

Point is he doesn't look undersized, like Spargo. The comparison makes no sense.

I agree with everything Dazzle has said. He's exactly the sort of player we should be looking at, especially if we can trade down.

Thanks for the feedback on this kid, Davos. In time, can you seeing him being capable of moving up the ground for stints or is he a small forward specialist?

It says in the below article that he can, but from what I've seen I'd rather he just focused on being as damaging as possible forward. In the few times I've seen him, he's one of those small forwards that looks dangerous whenever they're near the ball.

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
