None of Jefferson, Allan or George are invited to the draft night at Marvel according to Fox Sports website (who would know).

13 players invited Ashcroft, Cadman, Sheezel, Wardlaw, Tstatas Phillipou, Humphrey, MacKenzie, Ginbey, Clark, Busslinger. Hollands, Fletcher. That’s say to me none of them are top 10 for the obligatory top 10 photo.

Adonski saying we have offered Bombers 3 firsts for 4 & 22.

Assume it’s Phillipou, what are your thoughts?

Then maybe 37 and 22 for 19 from GWS.

If we rate him that high you would think its something like 4 and 22 for 13 and like 2 x 12-18 picks next year. Lets assume we win the flag in 2023 therefore 2022 18 and 2023 22 are much the muchness and probably moreso attractive for teams being next years draft highly rated. So its 13 and likely a 2023 pick 12-17 for this years 4. The risk that MFC or Freo bomb next year is low so I continue to back JT and Lamb being aggressive when they know who they rate and want.

From Marc McGowan at the Age. Marc speculates that we could trade w/ Dogs to get ahead of Eagles for Allan:

 

 

We must have half a dozen first round picks according to all these trades were supposedly involved in

Grabbing one of the highly touted mids while retaining 13 for one of Jeffer or JaKob would be ideal 

How would that play out? No way we're able to flip two late future firsts for a top 10 pick.

I like this idea of a top 5 pick and a start of second round early 20s pick for our three firsts.

More so about the stars aligning, I.e Allan getting through to 13, and grabbing GWS' pick 19 hoping one of Jeffer or Ryan remained

I saw Cal say somewhere earlier that one of the players plays like Weightman / Papley. Does anyone know who he was talking about, please?

Another small x factor forward to complement Kozzy would be very high on my list.

Think I read Charlie Clarke compared to him 

Problem is we already have a surplus of small fwds at vfl level

None of them are good enough though. There's a reason we took Kozzy in the first round.

Got some mail it’s Humphrey, but not long to wait now, either way.

It’s still likely to have 

1- GWS :Cadman 

2- Lions (f/son) Ashcroft 

3- Kangas : Sheezel 

4- Kangas : Wardlaw 

5- Bombers : Tsatas

6- Suns: Ginbey

7 - Hawks : Phillipou 

8- Cats: Clark

9- Eagles: Busslinger 

10- Saints: Mckenzie 

11- Carlton: Humphrey

12- Bulldogs: Hollands

13 - Eagles: Allan

14- Dees… leaves us with a likely Hewitt or Jefferson choice.

(we should bid on Davey or Fletcher if no other clubs have pushed that button) . 

I’d prefer Phillipou, Hollands or Allan but I’m thinking they’ll definitely be gone by our pick.   

The media have us in line for pick swaps  I love our aggressive approach and creative look at the draft process.  If we tempted the Bombers, Tsatas would be a huge win even if we gave up 2-3 picks to land him. 

Pick swaps to grab 19-22? … I’d see us definitely looking at Brayden George or Max Gruzewski at this pick. Either would be great additions although we’d have to wait on George until 2024.  Dees seemed to be rumoured to be looking at Jakob Ryan as a speedy rebounding half back.  Others at this pick would be Jaiden Major or Jakob Konstanty if available.  

Pick 37 may be part of pick swaps or unused. If it sits “as is”, then with pick 37 we’d have a look at Harry Lemmey (ruck) or running Mids like Jaxon Binns, Harvey Gallagher or Billy Dowling.  Each represent very good outside run and skill.  Caleb Mitchell from the Bushrangers is my smokie selection.

    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.
