What to do with Pick 10?

Recommended Posts

So now that we have pick 10, who do we think we are targeting? For me it's still Cody Weightman, although I'm sure others will disagree.

Dylan Stephens. genuine speed and class. exactly what we're lacking. everyone i've spoken to says he's an extremely impressive young man on and off the field. 

i think the only curve ball would be is if one of Ash or Young somehow slid that far.

Would be pretty happy with Stephens. Knightmares latest update on his thread on Bigfooty suggests that Carlton are pretty keen on Weightman at 9. The 1st round in this draft is more fluid than any other i can remember.

One of Kemp, Stephens, Young, Serong could possibly get through to our pick it seems.

Carlton want another small forward for sure. i personally think they're more likely to grab Serong but i think it's mostly guess work at this point. 

I think there is a serious possibility Adelaide or Fremantle could jump at 6 or 7 and grab Stephens. hopefully opening the door for Young to somehow slide to 10.

Pretty happy with whatever we do. Not sold on Jackson but if he can play forward until a ruck spot opens up I'm happy with that. Stephens is a good pick at 10 the runner we need. Hopefully Pickett is still available at pick 28 that would suit me fine.

Young wont be going that late imo.   Top 5 surely.

Might be targeting Weightman or Stephens.  Weightman seems the most logical as we were looking for similar in Elliot.

Would much rather Ash if we aren't taking Young but unlikely he will get through to 10.

Taylor, Pickett or potentially Williams at 28 if the former two are gone by then but would want to be sure re Willams' given his history of a back issue.

If we want Weightman it makes sense to split that pick with the Cats. and upgrade 28 - 17 and still get the same player. 

Then the Cats take Brodie Kemp and he becomes the next Joel Selwood and they never fallout of premiership contention.

Its all  too predictable

From the Herald Sun:

"The Demons are also looking to trade their no.10 choice for two picks, which could come in the teens and early 20s."

Says leading contenders for our 10 are Geelong, Port & Gold Coast"..

Port has best option 12 and 18 for 10 and 28

Depending on if our plan is to take Weightman. if we do i suspect he'd be there at 12 or 14. so 14 

so 17 is a better bonus pick than 18

The dogs have their eyes on someone specific. but it's not Weightman.

Pick 10 will most likely end up as pick 12 on draft night after academy bids. Likewise 28 will push out to at least 30, possibly 31 or 32 depending on bids on Maginness and Mead.

A theoretical trade with Geelong will see 12 and 30 become 16 and 19 (possibly 20 for Maginness).

12, 30-32

vs

16, 19-20

Not sure which one I like best to be honest.

one thing l am pretty sure of is that by trading with Freo who now have picks 7 and 8 we would have ensured they won't get in the way of the player/s we are eyeing off at pick 10.

I'd be surprises if the Cats did 14 and 17 for 10 and 28, and I'm not sold on us trading 10 for 14 and 24. Means something like Weightman and Pickett instead of Kemp/Stephens/Serong.

It will be interesting if any mooted trade happens today or Wednesday. If Wednesday you'd think we have more bargaining power, given teams will know for sure who is left.

If anything, it's Robertson that's drawn the Selwood comparisons. And he won't make it to Geelong now Freo have 7 and 8.

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears.

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,

    NORTH OF THE BORDER by The Oracle

    The outcomes of Melbourne’s recent games against the Gold Coast Suns are a pretty good barometer of how the teams are faring. The Demons easily accounted for them twice in 2018, the last win being a 96-point cakewalk at the MCG in Round 20 when they scored a whopping 21.17.143 to 7.5.47. Ironically, Melbourne’s score of 9.3.57 at the first break that afternoon is leading its highest score for a full game to date this year by 3 points. In those days, they played fast, skillful football, moved th

    PACK YOUR BAGS by George on The Outer

    The scene was captured by the TV camera’s before the match with a view of the Melbourne side’s bags packed next to the team bus to facilitate their flight up north to the AFL hub where they will play their next matches. However, on the basis of the efforts against Richmond, unless things change, and change rapidly, there will be some who will be told to pack their bags on a more permanent basis. Once again, the supporters got much the same story from this match against Richmond, as

    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
