Prediction - 2022 Phantom Drafts | Page 8 | BigFooty Forum

Cal Twomey's Phantom Form Guide: Top draft prospects' August ranking (afl.com.au)

Had a look at these 2. Cadman might just be gone before we get a pick. Jefferson is the 1 I'm interested in 7 goals V WA. Others we could be interested in are Phillipou, Hustwaite, Barnett, Gruzewski, and Keeler. I think we will go tall with our first 2 picks. Not sure of who we will go for at pick 34, any suggestions? pick 41 I think we will pick up Emile-Brennan.

My 7 ideal players that the Demons should look to possibly consider drafting (if we get 2 first round draft picks for Luke Jackson and keep them both) in the 2022 AFL National Draft would be the following young players in no particular order.

1) Aaron Cadman - Because we need a tall forward and he looks the best in the draft.

2) Matthew Jefferson - If we miss out on Aaron Cadman and want another likely tall forward.

3) Harry Sheezel - Just for pure talent and the goal kicking x factor that he has.

4) Bailey Humphrey - You simply cannot say no to a powerful goal kicking midfielder.

6) Isaac Keeler - An Indigenous forward-ruckman who could be an ideal replacement for Luke Jackson.

7) Lachie Cowan - A hard running defender-midfielder from Tasmania who could be a long term replacement for Michael Hibberd.

16 minutes ago, whatwhat say what said:

No thanks

Mids, mids, and more mids - we completely lack depth and quality of depth at that

Agree we lack depth there but I reckon we’re better off getting ‘mature’ (23-25) age players who can plug that gap. Feel like it’s harder to develop younger players properly when the starting lineup is as stacked as it is. 

Would be good to get a Cadman or Keeler type. Our forward line needs more of an injection of youth than our midfield

Time will tell

Why can't we target both....

1 mid (class, poise, agility and skills/finish pls) ... Tsatas / Humphrey / Other?

1 KTF ...Cadman/Jefferson?

Our depth in the midfield is alright considering Dunstan can't get a game. I think we will go for mids but later in the draft.

Any of Cadman, Jefferson or Keeler hopefully 2 of them.

yeah, i think we have depth but it's not great quality or emerging

i want quality players pressuring the likes of brayshaw, harmes, and sparrow for their roles as second and third rotation mids, rather than being ready to plug-and-play like dunstan

based on what i saw of vic country v vic metro, if we trade our way back into the 1st round this year then there's a fair bit of talent available that should do that

much more so than talls, where cadman looks a top 5 prospect but there's not much beyond that

What do you think about Jefferson? 2 goals named Vic Metro's best.

Not sure Humphrey is the skilled, silky  finisher that you are after. Hard at it, strong overhead and good inside.... sure!

Can he kick the ball like Lachie Whitfield or Issac Smith? Not even close!

I watched most of the game. Ashcroft was good but not as good as I expected. A lot of Sam Walsh about him. Harley Reid however was super impressive. He will be a star. As will Cadman. 

Jefferson had a good game but looks a long way off AFL ready. Harry Jones vibes. 
I really liked Anderson in defence for metro, plus Gruzewski had some great moments and Cam MacKenzie looks all class. Binns, Burgiel and Hustwaite were the other ones from Country who stood out.

The AFL website is a complete joke.

So much content. So little useful information. And so difficult to search, filter etc etc

I wanted to know when draft night was. The logical place to find that simple bit of info is the AFL website.

But for the life of me i could not find out that simple fact - despite there being a whole draft hub section of the site with videos, podcasts, etc etc etc.

Now i'm sure its on their somewhere, but i looked for 5 mins to no avail. 

Can someone please tell me what night draft night is?

Ta.

As i said, i knew it would be there somewhere.

But it is in the 'trade period' specific section of the website - and not in the 'draft hub' where logic suggests it should be. 

Wouldn’t you have been better off checking in the pinned post here in this very forum?

Probably.

Except I didn't know it existed. I don't go to topics via the forum - I go via recent posts.

Maybe the AFL website should link to dl.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
