Binns won't go top 20.

Don't think we will get Cadman or Jefferson with this pick but lets wait and see.

Still early days....

But these are some of the possibilities for pick #13 (which will become pick #14) in the 2022 AFL National Draft.

1) Matthew Jefferson - Tall forward

2) Mattaes Phillipou - Tall midfielder

3) Henry Hustwaite - Tall midfielder

4) Max Gruzewski - Tall forward

5) Lachie Cowan  - Medium defender

***********

I we are REALLY lucky someone like a Bailey Humphrey or a Elijah Tsatas might be a slider. But I highly doubt it.

GWS just spent a week manoeuvring their way to pick 1 to I assume get Cadman, and North got themselves two bites at the next best. Even with Ports pick 8 early last week we'd be no chance. Oh well!

I'm in the camp for Oliver Hollands at this pick. Outside mid with pace and good kicking. Could make the opposite wing to Lingers his own.

Cal Twomey has him going at 12 in his latest phantom draft, so he should be around the mark.

Really wanted a top 10 pick from the LJ trade but Freo couldn’t get it done. Dees might look to trade up a few places and try to get Humphrey.  
Likely run sheet 1. Ashcroft BRIS F/s 2.Cadman GWS 3.Tsatas NM 4.Wardlaw NM 5.Sheezel  EssFC 6.Humphrey  Suns  7.Phillipou Hawks 8.Clark cats  9.Ginbey WC  10.Mackenzie stk 11.Hollands Carl 12.HewittWB 13.Busslinger WC  If we are stuck on pick “13” then 14. Dees …might bid on Jaspa Fletcher (Lions father son) it’s likely that JT will look at Matt Jefferson or Max Gruzewski to grab a key position young forward for list balance or take a punt on Brayden George.

Here is my alternative strategy for pick 13:

  • we are not going to get into the elite end of the draft this year (top 5 or so) and the next batch is "throw a blanket over" material.
  • 2023 draft is looking very strong
  • we have lots of young talent at Casey that needs an opportunity (Turner, Bowey, JJ, Howes, JVR, Chandler all missed R23).  We need to give them an opportunity and show them a career path or we will lose them as we have Bedford.
  • we need to position ourselves so we can access some really elite talent, not just good talent.

To this end I'd look at trading 13 for a future 1st which teams that are rebuilding might find attractive.  We might get something in return like a pick in the 30's. Draft in Grundy, promote Chandler and draft a couple in the 30's or 40's.

That leaves us with 3 first rounders next year plus your future 1st for 2024.  We also have 2 seconds in 2024. We would then be in a fantastic position in a very good draft to trade up higher to get some really elite talent or trade in a very good player.

I think we have enough good core talent both in the team and at Casey to take this approach.  I don't think we need to add good but not elite talent this year.  If we are to contend well into the future we need access to either the really pointy end of the draft or enough collateral to satisfy a really elite talent trade.

Fans would scream but I think it's a great idea.  So, there you go, pull it apart.

No pulling it apart from me - reckon it is a great plan.

Just a minor question:  not sure where those picks for this year will come from unless we convert some future picks to this year which is easily doable.  Doubt Ess will give us a 2022 pick for Weideman if he goes as they need points for Davey jr.

A premiership and 3 1st round picks. They might give us a trade ban and ban future first trading league wide if we added a 4th :laugh:

It's a really good idea, well worth thinking about. Even if we use it this year, we can still conceivably trade Freo's 1st, Our 1st and a (2024) Future 1st next year for a very high pick, or a trade for a gun key forward out of contract.

Looking at which clubs are doing the picking in the 7-12 range, I think there’s a very good chance Jefferson is there at 13/14. West Coast pick twice and there’s a feeling they’ll go local with Busslinger & Hewitt. Saints probably want McKenzie, Dogs & Blues won’t go tall and top 5 is too high for him. Cats May pounce at 7, but also sounds like they’re into Jhye Clark.

Remember this pick will become pick 15 after the two likely bids. Doubt Phillipou or Humphry will slide to 15, so we're likely to get scraps or someone like Jefferson here. We desperately need a KPF, but Jefferson seems the only one around this mark in phantom drafts, and he's less than 80kgs and looks years away from having a body ready for AFL. On the vision I've seen, he looks more a like a pick 40 project player than a first round elite talent.
Hollands could be a best case scenario to give us more outside run and skill.

Disappointing result to not get a higher pick, as we're losing elite talent and likely not replacing it with elite talent. Hopefully there's still more dealing to come and we get inside the top 10 and give ourself a better shot at replacing elite talent with elite talent. As suggested earlier in this thread, we may be better off trading this pick out for future 1st rounders in hope that we can access elite talent next year instead of average talent this year.

We are not losing elite talent,one great qtr in 52 games does not spell elite.Elite potential ,perhaps,if there is such a thing

im of the view we should go smaller here and try and get our second pick into the 30 range to have a go at keeler, i rkn he has the best athletic build of the talls. cadman i feel has peaked early and benefitted from being the biggest bloke out there against other 18yo's which as we found out with weid doesnt necessarily transition to the big league. keeler has the leap and the athletic ability to get around the grounds. pair him with hollands i say and then bring elijah back to melbourne in a few years time ;)

It might be helpful to understand this discussion in context to look at the last five drafts and the choices made at around this selection.

I just couldn’t handle it. Every time he makes a mistake hearing supporters yell ‘that’s trash binns’.

Also, it’s not really on brand. Is there a ‘Slopes’, ‘Herringbone’ or ‘Roquefort’ available?

    GRAND NEW FLAG by Meggs

    Daisy was at pains to tell everyone who asked that the grand final story was NOT the Daisy Pearce story.  She wanted people to focus on the Melbourne Football Club, our wonderful players and non-playing teammates, her legacy buddy head coach Mick Stinear, the assistant coaches, the Club volunteers, the Board, the administrators, #DeeArmy, all supporters, in fact anyone who bleeds for the red and the blue.  But it is also a bit about the pioneer, role model, mother who is Daisy Pearce

    EYES ON THE PRIZE by Meggs

    The Stinear/Pearce partnership has evolved over the 7 AFLW seasons and they have built a team with talented, committed footballers who play for each other and execute a highly entertaining brand of footy. On Sunday can a premiership be added to this legacy? This may well be the last time we see Daisy in the mighty red and blue as she contemplates her start date for a coaching role ‘Down at Kardinia Park’.  Last week’s sensational sealer in the Prelim showed everybody that Daisy could s

    DAISY’S DEMON DRIVE by Meggs

    On a blustery Saturday afternoon when the conditions affected marking skills and the ball bounced unpredictably, the Mighty Dees stuck fat against a determined Kangaroos outfit to break away with two final quarter goals to none to win AFLW Preliminary Final 2 by 17 points — an all-time high winning margin between these two teams.  From the outset it was a fiercely fought contest with Melbourne unable to find the ball in space. North really amped up their one-percenters an

    NOT A MOMENT TO MISS by Meggs

    The AFLW Season 7 fixture was carefully crafted to purposely handicap the better teams and give the expansion and developing sides an easier draw.  Nonetheless, this weekend’s Preliminary Finals will showcase the Lions, Demons, Crows and Roos, teams widely accepted as the best 4 in the competition.   In Friday night’s Prelim 1 the minor premiers, Brisbane, will start warm favourites at home against Adelaide.   On Saturday afternoon at Ikon Park, Prelim 2 between Melbourne and North is

    STICK TO YOUR GUNS by Meggs

    The Dees convincingly overcome the fast-starting reigning-premiers Adelaide to win by 21 points in a fiery Qualifying Final match at Ikon Park on Friday evening.     In that first quarter Adelaide jumped out of the blocks kicking their first goal inside 20 seconds finishing with 3 goals to nil. All was quiet at Ikon Park.     Melbourne, having easily outplayed lesser opponents over the past six weeks took time to ratchet up their intensity.  But, by mid to late first quarter, the Dees be

    HEAVYWEIGHTS by Meggs

    AFLW heavyweights Melbourne and Adelaide kick off the AFLW Season 7 Final Series with a massive Qualifying Final clash at Ikon Park this Friday night at 7:10pm.  The game promises to be a cracker.   Last season’s Grand Final combatants last met in Round 1where Melbourne came away with a strong 18-point victory at Glenelg Oval. The Dees will be hoping to replicate the result and move directly to the Preliminary Final.    While Adelaide may not have been as intimidating this season as in p

    MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH by Meggs

    Congratulations to Daisy’s Dees on a huge 78-point one-sided win against West Coast in challenging windy and wet conditions at Casey Fields.     The banner celebrating Sarah Lampard’s 50 games was a victim of the wind, but nonetheless Lampy received a warm round of applause from the parochial crowd in attendance.   Melbourne has the double-chance and is excited about its chances in the Season 7 AFLW finals. If this means the Grand Final is played at Metricon and the Demond make it, then

    LIVE IN THE MOMENT by Meggs

    The final home and away match of Season 7, sees the mighty Dees at Fortress Casey hosting the 16th placed West Coast.     A win assures the Dees of a Top-2 finish, with the ultimate placings dependent upon the previous night’s result between Brisbane and Collingwood and the relative percentages.   As our match is anticipated to be one-sided, interest may turn to monitoring the live ladder to see whether or not Melbourne has secured the minor premiership.     The Demons (Lions and Cro

    BOMBED by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne has all but assured itself of a top two finish to the (second) 2022 AFLW season after crushing Essendon by 41 points on Sunday. It now holds a four point lead over third placed Adelaide along with a handy percentage advantage with one round remaining before the finals. The Demons opened kicking with the advantage of the squally wind that often prevails at Casey Fields and for the third week in a row, they kept their opponents scoreless in the opening term.
