A steal at 97? An absolute punt !!  

I think Charlie Sprague (Falcons under 18s might be available)   Saw his 2018 highlights and thought unlucky not to be drafted.  Agile, great mark. Goalkicker   Played for Barwon Heads senior team and as a overager in Falcons team.  From the Falcons footy factory, he has the makings of a AFL player. 

Lachlan Potter (nth knights under 18s) - pacy running mid. Absolutely a classic wingman. Vic metro rep. Got injured 2/3rds through the year. You can never bypass kids with footy smarts and lightning pace. Likely to be drafted imo at 50-60+ but could slip.   Would be one not to ignore  

Perhaps a mature age type 

Sam Lowson (Coburg)- 22 -small forward.  
Will Fordham (Frankston) -23 - tall running ruck Rover Hayden Schloithe (Sth Fremantle) -26 - solid running mid Jordan Lockyer (Subiaco)26 - 193cm full back - ex Sydney Swans listed / best defender in WAFL  

I’d definitely grab Schloithe.  Ready to go. Past 4 years has been one of the best mids in WAFL. Will be a guaranteed player to cover any midfield role.  Would succeed and cannot underestimate him given success of Pickett, Menegola and Kelly. 
 

What about Lefau from Casey??? Dazzle??

I believe that Mykelti Lefau could be picked as a Category B rookie as he is originally from New Zealand. However, he’s been around for a couple of years and the club hasn’t opted to do so and therefore, it’s not a likely option. 

In any case, he wouldn’t therefore be in contention to be drafted like the others.

I do find it interesting that with the bidding system a relatively useless low draft pick can actually become semi-valuable. It is conceivable next year with the high proportion of F/S and academy picks that a pick in the 50’s or early 60’s becomes a pick in the 30’s.

(b) In addition to maintaining the maximum number of allowable Category A Rookie
Players on their Rookie List under Rule 10.1, each Club may include a maximum
of three (3) extra Players on its Category B Rookie List provided those Players
are:
(i) former International Scholarship List Players at that Club who have been
nominated under Rule 13.5 or 13.8;
(ii) former Club Academy players at that Club who have been nominated
under Rule 14.4;
(iii) International Players with the exception of Players who, subject to Rule
10.1(c), are Irish citizens or who have, in the opinion of the AFL, lived for
a substantial period of time in Ireland prior to inclusion on the Rookie List;
(iv) Players who have not been registered or played in an Australian football
competition for 3 years immediately before inclusion on the Rookie List;

(v) a Qualified NGA Player of the Club who has been nominated in
accordance with Rule 15.8(c).

If only we had one more pick.  Mitch O’Neill or Fraser Phillips.  Both look likely AFL Players with excellent skills and that class to play at the top level.  Both will definitely get rookie listed. 

Both got picked up as rookies.  Desperately unlucky not to be drafted.

I really like your posts mate, but you do have a tendency to overrate players, particularly when compared to where they end up being drafted.

    HORSING AROUND by George On The Outer

    Before the match it was claimed that Collingwood were a “one trick pony” side.  Well that one trick worked very well against Melbourne, as they extended their winning streak to 11 for the season. Meanwhile, the Demons continued to horse around with structures which simply haven’t been working. The one tall forward option with resting rucks failed yet again, in an almost identical manner to the game against the Bulldogs recently.  93 more possessions, 65 inside 50 entries 24 more than the op

    THE BUBBLE by The Oracle

    "I feel like we've got more than enough experience in close games. It'd be nice to win one by five or six goals and have that pulse lower a little bit late in games, but that's not our story." — Scott Pendlebury on the eve of his team’s forthcoming Round 21 game against Melbourne. When you read words such as these, you know it’s time for Melbourne fans to be humble. The old enemy is up and about while our mantle of invincibility has vanished into thin air. A Magpie win against the Demons wo

    ANCHORS AWEIGH! by George on the Outer

    So came the cry from the Dockers as the S.S. Fremantle set sail with the hopes of all of their supporters on board on the mighty ship. Their task was to do nothing more than to defeat the Melbourne side and a top four position on the ladder was assured. The problem for them was that their leaky boat came up against the mighty battleship - Team Demon and it didn’t take long after they left port for their vessel to develop a multitude of leaks. The first salvo was fired by First Officer

    SWEET SIXTEEN by KC from Casey

    The game was an uneven match up from the very beginning. The Casey Demons, representing an alignment between the reigning premiers Melbourne and the outer southeastern expansion area centred around a sprawling Cranbourne with its rapid population growth and the stand alone Northern Bullants from the inner north who sit at the foot of the VFL table. With 14 AFL listed players and a couple more having experience at the elite level opening with the breeze at their backs, the result was inevitable.

    THE HUNGER GAME by Whispering Jack

    The game may well have taken place a day short of ten weeks ago but the atmospherics surrounding Friday night’s match between Melbourne (then Narrm) and Fremantle are light years apart from those that prevailed when the teams last faced off the MCG in late autumn. On one hand, the Demons were in the midst of a 17 game winning spree that included a drought breaking premiership victory. On the other, the Dockers were coming off a six goal thrashing at Optus Stadium in teeming rain against a then s

    DOG-TIED by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons were extended early against rivals Footscray VFL in their matchup played in wet and greasy conditions at VU Whitten Oval on Saturday but, after establishing their authority in the second quarter, they were able to tie up their opponents at the end to maintain their undefeated run which now stands at 15.  The game began under grey threatening skies and the wet conditions turned the game into a tight slog with scoring kept down to a minimum. The Demons were held goalless agai

    DOG DAY by George On The Outer

    It is said that every dog has its day and that was certainly the case when the Western Bulldogs defeated Melbourne under the roof at the Docklands on Saturday night.   While the Dogs were certainly at the very top of their game, the same couldn’t be said of the Demons. All around the ground, dismal individual performances and dismal team performances were the order of the day.  Fans should have been worried right from the start as the game turned into a goal-fest. This is not their team’

    RAINING CATS & DOGS by Whispering Jack

    Despite winning their game in the Red Centre at the weekend, the consensus among the pundits is that Melbourne’s days in the sun are over. Ten rounds into the season, they were the competition’s top dogs and regarded virtually unbeatable but their recent form (three wins from the last seven games) has put them well below par, perilously clinging onto second spot on the ladder with storm clouds on the horizon. The air of invincibility that once surrounded them is gone and the Demons face a t

    THE KOZZY SHOW by George On The Outer

    Q: Melbourne is playing Port Adelaide at Traeger Park, Alice Springs and once again, it doesn’t have a properly functioning forward line — so from where were the goals going to come?   A: Kysaiah Pickett.     In a one man show in front of his adoring fans, he racked up six majors to give the Demons the edge in the game and to finally run out winners by 14 points.     The result could well have been very different without his efforts with Melbourne failing to score a major

    SWITCHING ON by The Oracle

    We can’t take anything for granted, can we? After all, the Melbourne that took Port Adelaide for a long ride around the Adelaide Oval in early April of this year and switched off late in the game is finding it difficult of late to switch back on. Apart from a stellar display against the Brisbane Lions a fortnight ago, the Demons have laboured during the middle part of the season and, with a tough draw ahead of them, have reached a critical stage of the season after their first flag in decad

    STORIES by KC from Casey

    There were more than a few stories about Friday night’s game between the Casey Demons and Geelong at GMHBA Stadium. The first was one of complete domination in the first quarter (six goals to nil), ascendency in the last (five to two) and the second was about the void in between (zero to seven). The third was about how, in the end, the Demons retained their unbeaten record despite the hell of a scare they had on the rainswept spaces of the Cattery. However, the story that folk might be

    NIPPED by George on the Outer

    Melbourne’s twenty eight point loss to Geelong down at Taxpayer Funded Park provided plenty of cat-nip for the Geelong fans and their team.  After all, the Cats go away thinking they have now got the Demons sorted after the embarrassments heaped upon them last season and their taste of this cat-nip will get even stronger in the coming weeks, courtesy of the AFL draw which gives them three more home games at the same venue in the six remaining rounds.  Yet Melbourne, despite this loss
