I don't love that tape at all. Seems to rush a lot of his disposals and doesn't play with any power, he doesn't use his speed to take on tacklers and doesn't hold the ball to release runners. A couple of good quick handballs but a couple of panicked turnover ones too. More of a Setterfield or Cale Morton type from that viewing. At that size and athleticism there's plenty to work with but there's also a lot of work to do!

I watch the tape and he has no depth in his kicking for his size.

Those 7 clubs dont need a high risk long term development player which is what Andrew is

They need on ballers with immediate impact

Andrew will be available late second round early third in my opinion due not to his qualities but more to do with club needs

That's not what the "experts" in 2022 are predicting.  Plenty of Clubs looking for a Dogga clone!!!

On the Mac Andrew thread, Action Jackson compared the statistics of Andrew and Jackson in their Under 18 year. There’s no evidence that Andrew is a clone of Jackson - the difference is light years.

Yep looks like a very shallow draft for mine. Then again, I thought the same about last year. Bowey = winning.

There's nothing surer than us picking up a bloke at pick 17, who is universally ranked at around pick 40

Matt Roberts reminds me of Dyson Heppell.  He’s a midfielder but also an all rounder type.  Certainly talented and wouldn’t be a poor choice.  I thought Power would be his new home given they need to restock their midfield.  Not sure he’s what MFC would pick but given he’s been top 10 quality, if he was a slider then JT would have to consider.  I think we may hope for a Goater, Sinn or Sonsie if they slide through.   I think all will be gone imv and would be looking at Chesser or Wilmot for outside run and pace across wing/half back. 

Last year you said Roberts wasnt draft quality?

I couldn’t find such content in my history of posts to reference “Matt Roberts unlikely to be drafted” .  
perhaps the context was that he wasn’t even eligible for the 2020 draft.  Perhaps that helps !! The comparison to Heppell stands and he will be drafted in 2021 draft. @IvanBartul13 Please give your assessment.  Also happy to hear your views on other players for critique!

Might be only 50 players drafted this year. Restricted year. Limited underage rep games. Tighter list spots.

My assessmement is the quote attached above and the discussion in the Rhyan Mansell thread are compelling in regards to what you thought of Roberts last year.  Now all of a sudden that he is in some phantoms, you have latched on to him.  Im still waiting for your help in accessing the WAFL colts tapes - or how to.

Thanks Turner for the support and not the trolling. With the Dees premiership, I was hoping it’s positive energy on DL for the future.  Usually a 70% strike rate.  Actually as well the considered later picks Mansell, Ford and Winder looked ok in their AFL debuts this year.  
 

Got Salem over Freeman, Petracca over McCartin (who didn’t, yes the Saints) , Oliver over Parish.   Liked Wines over Toumpas as we all did.  Thought Gysberts and Lucas Cook picks were a (censored). 
 

Definitely got Scully & Trengove over Martin wrong (but they were the chosen ones). Got Bowey wrong (he’s a beauty and ok to be wrong. Saints were bleeding once again😢). 
 

It’s a guess work without interviews and all the backgrounds and full access that recruiters have. It’s all a bit of a fun, a distraction whilst we spend 5 months waiting for the action to begin.  There’s no guarantees.

 

JT is a legend and he’s been one of the keys behind our success. In JT we trust 🏆

Lol no you didn't.

I remember your post last year wanting to select Zavier Maher with our first pick who actually didn't even get drafted.

If recruiting was up to our team would be made up of delisted free agents and mature age recruits.

Track record is horrendous.

freeman is a good footballer showed so at the pies, and when given a second chance by the saints and then at vfl level this year, what was SONS supposed to predict his hammies wouldn't hold? expect you wanted him also to get on the blower to freo and remind them morabito at pick 4 was a no go coz he would do 4 acl's in the next 5 years too? why are we all sh1tt1ng on each other for having opinions? not like a top 10 draft has ever, literally ever still been the top 10 after 3 years let alone by the end of their careers

What the hell is going on - why are you guys so out to get SONS?  Who remembers people's draft preferences from 8 years ago?  No one is going to have a flawless record on this stuff - SONS does a reasonable job that most people appreciate.

Just changing the subject, there’s an article in the Adelaide Advertiser

AFL Draft 2021 ultimate guide: Every club’s picks, list needs and targetsWhat draft picks does your club have? And, more importantly, what will it do with them? We look at every team’s picks, list needs and targets.

Here’s what they say about Melbourne -

Melbourne 

Draft picks: 17, 37, 49, 57, 94

List needs: Outside run, key forward depth

Who could be available at first pick:

Campbell Chesser, Mitch Owens, Tyler Sonsie, Jacob Van Rooyen, Jack Williams, Blake Howes 

Could be in the mix after that: Cooper Murley, Judson Clarke, Sam Banks, Jack Avery, Morgan Ferres, Jordan Lukac, Josh, Rentsch

The premier has a well-balanced list with stars on every line so, if they don’t look to package their first two selections for one higher up the order, the Demons might just wait to see who slides. Chesser’s run-and-carry and Sonsie’s midfield class will appeal, while the athletic Howes would give Simon Goodwin’s side a new look on the wing. As would bolter Owens, who has grown 15cm over the past two years. And calling his name out inside the top 20 means St Kilda will not be able to match the bid for the NGA prospect. WA tall Williams would be a terrific selection if he were to slide outside of the top 30, while Murley and Clarke would add another layer to Melbourne’s ball-movement. Ferres is a mid-sized forward with strong hands, who is often a step ahead of opposition defenders with his running patterns. Rentsch, on the other hand, is a powerful, 197cm forward, who tied for this year’s Morrish Medal in the NAB League, if the Demons still need to add to their key-forward stocks late.

Does Chesser play for the Knights?

Chesser is from Wodonga and boarded at Melbourne Grammar. Played at Sandringham Dragons. Quick burst of pace. Seemed to do a lot of media and very presentable young man.  His injuries may see him slide down outside round 1. But his under 16s carnival form was outstanding so he will have to be strongly in the frame. If Dees want some outside mid pace, he may be seriously considered.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2021 by Whispering Jack

    MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT MUCH The 2021 Free Agency and Trade Periods were billed by Fox Footy as promising a “period like no other and that certainly proved correct but not for the reasons that Network spin suggested when promoting its daily program of news from the trade desk. The truth is that the football public has endured an uneventful and forgettable fortnight unless you perhaps, happen to be a Carlton or a Hawthorn fan. The Blues managed to pick up the biggest name of the trade peri

    CHANGES 2021 by The Oracle

    Part 1: Moving right along … For the first time in aeons, the end of the football season hasn’t felt as if it passed so swiftly. We’re still living the dream of 25 September, 2021 and rightfully so — we were patient, long-suffering and we’ve earned the right to party hard (as long as we’re not infecting the rest of the state as some health authorities contend). But we’ve also come into October which in football terms means that for one segment of the Melbourne Football Club — the recru

    THE APPRENTICE by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne Next Generation Academy prospect Mac Andrew has had a meteoric rise in the eyes of many track watchers who follow the fortunes of football talent at the elite level. So much so that under the AFL's new rules which prohibit clubs from matching bids on their NGA players within the first 20 selections, there’s a widely held perception that Andrew is falling out of the club’s grasp.   Despite being buoyed by the Demons’ drought-breaking premiership, some fans are showing their a

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition th

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s
