According to this article - How many picks will your club use in the 2019 draft? - “AFL.com.au has found there is likely to be a minimum of 62 picks and a maximum of 74 picks in the national draft.”

That means that by the time the draft comes around, pick 97 will not really exist and our last pick will be in the early 70s if in fact we use it at all in the draft. We could use the selection as a rookie upgrade if the club decides to go down that path. 

Therefore, I wouldn’t concern myself with #97 at this stage.

Probably a hypothetical but if we keep pick 3 and 8,

and take Murray as DFA & Bennell as SSP rookie

we actually might get the last two live picks at the end being around 74 and 75. 
 

BTW there’s the saying that it does not matter where you are drafted, pick 1 or 81, you go on an AFL list and try your hardest.  
Harmesy missed out on being drafted but went in the rookie draft. It’s the heart and work ethic that determines the outcome sometimes.

I think it’s already been explained elsewhere but we have 5 vacancies so based on your scenario, there would only be one vacancy left if we took 3 & 8, Murray as a DFA and Bennell as a SSP Rookie.

BTW, if this happens, the chances of us also pursuing Jack Martin much further are diminished.

* these are subject to special criteria for selection that are outside the drafting rules

Hence, there are some alternate possibilities -

1 In this scenario, we upgrade Jay Lockhart from the rookie list to enable Harley Bennell to be listed as a rookie in March. No trades or splitting of picks 

36. Pick 3
37. Pick 8
38. Pick 97
39. Sam Murray
40. Jay Lockhart (rookie upgrade)

Category A Rookies

1. Harley Bennell 
2. Kade Chandler
3. Kyle Dunkley
4. Corey Wagner  

2 In this scenario, we opt for a primary list of 39 and Bennell becomes the 5th rookie 

36. Pick 3
37. Pick 8
38. Pick 97
39. Sam Murray

Category A Rookies

1. Harley Bennell 
2. Kade Chandler
3. Kyle Dunkley
4. Jay Lockhart 
5. Corey Wagner  

Then there are other scenarios that would involve trading/splitting of picks and even going for a primary list of 38 + 6 rookies.

Thanks. I thought we had 6. 
outs - Lewis Maynard TSmith Frost Jkh stretch Garlett Keilty 

ins - Langdon Tomlinson 

I guess Dunkley now is an addition officially. He had to become listed as his mid year selection was actually because of injury list replacement for Nietschke. 
 

so it’s 5 more !!

Ryan sparkes from gippsland power is one i hope the club has a eye on, in some games with power he looked just as talented as serong and flanders.

He is a smooth moving wingman, always seems to have more time with the ball.

I see alot of upside in him

Fraser Phillips from Gippsland Power who trained with the Dees at the start of the year is someone I'd like to really consider if he is still there.

Talented left footer who brings X factor and someone who I think is very underrated in this year's crop.

I'd love to see us again have a really good look at the state leagues and get a mature age player. we've done pretty well so far with that approach. another Bailey Fritsch or Vanders for pick 97 would be a great result.

With all of the picks used for the academy players so far I see that our fourth pick in this years draft has moved up to 74. No doubt this will move up more tomorrow. It will be interesting to see if this ends up in the 50’s or 60’s.

Yes draft pick will fall to around 65-70

but I think there is 5 spots available pre draft

now down to 3

That’s pick 30 and then Bennell and Brown as rookie/SSP Listings.

Yes split 97 and next years 43 for 86 and 99.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    WHADDA WE SING? by Whispering Jack

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
