AFL Mid Season Draft 2021



Recommended Posts

Like to see Will Bravo in this game.  Genuine pace and goalkicker.
Another interesting player is Isaac Wareham. Excellent running half back- wing type.  Good skills. Unlucky to miss out on 2019 draft.  Now at Geelong Cats VFL team.

Trade a bloke who has rediscovered his best form? Have you been kicked off Facebook and need the attention?

Just thinking, we have a riches of big men, and with. Toms form being excellent, teams would now be frothing to get him on their list, are we able to trade him out, and pick up a player that fills a n

The mid-season draft is just that, a draft. Not a trade period...

Boomer Harvey anyone?

So he could train with our players and get them used to incessant “I am innocent, ump” sniping??

On Saturday, May 8, club recruiters will get a chance to see some of the best contenders for the mid-season draft feature in the Colgate Young Guns game for Under 23 prospects at Werribee Oval (2.40pm). 

Is it just me that finds it strange that there appears to be no-one aged 21-23 in an u23 match

A key back in case of further injuries would be handy

Also a mature ruck, in case Gawn goes down or needs a breather - as he is getting beaten up every week now.

Ironic that we overlooked Oscar McIneirny when he was playing as a Casey Demon. 🤔

Former ST Kilda rookie?

Yes.  He has turned into one of the top VFL midfielders (wing/ruck rover).  Has good pace and excellent skills.  Won Port Melbourne B&F in 2019. Has returned this year even fitter and stronger.  Took on some StKilda listed players last week and beat them in the contest and spread.  I guess we are ok for mids but he could play a role on the wing.  I think we probably need a wing/outside pace (Templeton/ Bravo) and/or perhaps another insurance key defender (Coughlan).

But he was available at our first pick and instead went for some unknown giraffe in Lochie Fillapovic.

That's what we recruited Daw for preseason.

I'd like us to recruit one more inside mid type, as it's an area where we look a bit skinny at the moment depth wise.

A replacement for Tomlinson would be ideal for us. We can use this draft to our advantage. Perfect time to bring in a mature bodied replacement. Even if slightly older to just fill a role for the year.

This is now an important part of our season.. we need to make the most of this draft. Do we need an extra back or another outside runner?

What is everyone's thoughts? this is no longer just a draft to fill spare spots, we need to make sure this is used as a strategic move to add to our list and help with player management.

Agree. We need to drive hard for the premiership.  We have the chance this year. We must believe we can win it.  
 

I think the mid year draft could be a “cover all bases” approach and find  

1st a pacy wing type midfielder

and perhaps …

2nd a taller defender.

 I think we have coverage across forwards tall and small, Ruck, inside mids  and small defenders coverage.

We definitely need a key back as cover for Petty if he gets injured. I say we need a ruck if Daw gets injured. Do we have 3 picks or 2? If we have 3 just the best available.

Looks like Marty Hore may be ready for a late season/finals re-birth if we run into a few injuries, re-joining the group for running this week.....you'd assume 10-12 weeks from there to be fit and smash a mini preseason

I'd prefer him to stay out for 12 months the risk of doing it again is likely.

One of the boys on the Deebrief podcast has a cousin named Will Hart who plays for Oakleigh Chargers. Apparently someone on our recruitment team is interested in picking him up in the mid season draft. Has anyone heard anything about this?

Interesting. 

Will Hart is a 19 year old tall prospect at 195cm.

Has played 3 NAB league games so far. It looks like the theme of the mid season draft for us will be depth for our defenders.

    HOT PIES FREEZE DEES by George on the Outer

    In the Annual Big Freeze game in support of Neale Daniher's fight against MND, it was Collingwood who froze the ambitions of the Demons, and it now challenges them to thaw out their prospects in the second half of the season. Even though Melbourne opened the scoring account, it was quickly countered by Collingwood, as the Demons appeared flat. And even though they held a minor lead at the first break, it was only through a couple of fortunate efforts, but nothing more.  All around

    FROZEN by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne supporters are an unusual lot. Their lived experiences over years of witnessing their team’s humiliation at the hands of the competition’s bullies have left them suspended in a Bizarro World beset by a cognitive distortion know as 'mental filtering'. This is a phenomenon that occurs when people focus exclusively and blindly on long held belief systems. They refuse to accept that conditions have changed so when the evidence is present before their very own eyes, their minds are frozen.

    CHANGES: 2021 MID SEASON by The Oracle 

    Since the end of the 2020 free agency, trade and draft period, AFL clubs have had two further bites of the cherry to top up their lists — the supplemental selection period (SSP) and the 2021 mid-season rookie draft (MSD). The main idea behind both was to enable the fulfillment of immediate needs as a result of injuries or unexpected retirements but this year, we have seen the added dimension of straight out recruitment for the future rather than for now. As a consequence, a number of ready

    LION TAMERS by George On The Outer

    In an enthralling game between two top four sides, it was the Demons who tamed the Lions, and propelled themselves into the position of premiership favourite even though the season is barely past the halfway mark. This is because Melbourne keeps on beating those teams around them who might provide a challenge. Not only that, it keeps winning with emphatic displays of resilience and toughness that have not been seen in a Demons side for many, many years. Challenged in the first half of

    DUELING BANJOS by Whispering Jack

    In the classic Australian poem, A B “Banjo” Paterson sought the answer by letter to a question concerning the whereabouts of a drover named “Clancy”. The response from Clancy’s shearing mate was written with a thumb-nail dipped in tar: “Clancy’s gone to Queensland droving, and we don’t know where he are.” Most of us would have felt a little bit that way earlier in the week wondering about the possible whereabouts of the Melbourne team for this week’s encounter against Brisbane. Were th

    DOGGED DEEFENCE by George on the Outer

    “No-one let the Dogs out” was the Demons response for the (former) top side.  The Melbourne defence, capably lead by Steven May and Jake Lever simply suffocated any hopes that the Western Bulldogs might have had about leading the competition at the mid-way point. Instead, it is the Demons who now sit at the top of the ladder, again a game clear, while their supporters are starting to believe that this side is the real deal.  Pity is that those same supporters couldn’t watch their team demol

    LOOK AWAY DEMON FANS by The Oracle

    Last week I predicted a comfortable Melbourne victory for its game against Adelaide. “Something in the order of 61 points”, I opined. Well, after the game, I checked the wording of my preview very carefully from all angles and I have now concluded that I have to issue an apology to Demon fans. I got it wrong. I’m not bitter and twisted about my error in failing to predict the coaching errors, defensive mistakes, lack of forward pressure and, of course, the complete failure of those officiat

    CALM BEFORE THE CALM by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons overcame a sluggish first half to run over the Sydney Swans in the second to record an emphatic 40 point victory, maintaining their undefeated record and retaining top spot on the VFL ladder. The game originally listed as part of the Round 4 fixture but delayed due to a Covid19 scare in Sydney and the scrappy way in which the teams approached the contest suggested that the players were still in delay mode. This applied in particular to most of the 12 AFL listed Casey player

    NOTHING TO CROW ABOUT by George On The Outer

    Melbourne’s nine game winning streak  came to an end in Adelaide with a one point loss to the Crows. Losing to a team that had only won three games for the season, having lost five in a row was certainly nothing to crow about.  All around the ground players collectively put in their poorest performance for the year.  The loss of Christian Salem before the match was critical, as his replacement Nev Jetta is a mere shadow the player he once was. The mind is still willing, but the body no

    CRYING OVER SPILT MILK by The Oracle

    It had to happen sooner or later. Melbourne has been riding high through the season to date and, with the exception of a small bunch of nuff nuffs who are never satisfied with anything, the club has attracted more positive vibes from the community in these nine weeks than it did in the past decade. So it came as no surprise to see some low grade stirring of the sort which only the media could come up with at a time like this. The on line site Zero Hanger came up with an article that opined,

    CATNIPPED by KC from Casey

    After winning big away from home across the first three rounds of the new look VFL competition, the Casey Demons were forced to dig deep against Geelong VFL at Casey Fields on Saturday. The traditional AFL based teams were evenly matched, fielding ten listed players apiece and this was reflected in the evenness of the game and the final margin which saw the home side leading by a solitary point on the final siren. Casey suffered an early blow when Jake Bowey came off with what ap

    BLUES IN THE RED by George On The Outer

    While the Demons’ undefeated run continues unabated now at 9-0 their emphatic 26 point victory pushed the Blues to their sixth loss for the season and deeper into the red for the year. While Melbourne opened proceedings with an early goal, the Blues responded with the next two to grab an early lead.  However, as has happened in so many games this year, the Demons fought back to lead by just over a goal come the first break. This narrow lead was part of a streak either side of quarter t
