Probably already been posted but Kevin Sheehan link to Draft possible Rucks/Forwards.

Kevin Sheehan’s 2022 NAB AFL Draft Top Prospects – Tall Forwards/Rucks

Great draft hand next year. Two firsts and 2 seconds. Likely will try to trade up further.

Likely a tall Ruck/Forward this year and next year. TMc, B Brown, Gawn all around 30 plus.

Sure to get Kynan Brown as a F/S mid next year as well.

Surely we wont be drafting this guy:

Thomas Scully
State: South Australia
State League Club: West Adelaide
Community Club: Lockleys
Date of Birth: 02/11/04; Height: 203cm; Weight: 89kg

A tall forward who had a wonderful start to the 2022 season, with his overhead marking and accuracy around goals earning him a call up to AFL Academy team that represented Australia. He showed glimpses of his sizable potential up forward as a marking target during that match against Collingwood’s VFL side in May. He booted 50 goals in 14 matches for West Adelaide in the SANFL under-18s, as well as playing one game for South Australia at the 2022 NAB AFL National Championships U18 Boys

From Cal Twomey's phantom the only 2 tall forwards/ruck we could access at around pick 13 would be Jefferson (pick 10) and Keller (pick27).

Should be a few of KPFs around pick 37. Lions have picks just before ours which will be used on their F/S bids.  So we will come in a few picks.

No doubt JT and team have their eye on a few. May surprise us and pick a mid???

I'd like to get Oliver Hollands with our first pick. He won the draft combine time trial with a 2km run in 5 minutes 54 seconds and who knows in a few years time we might be able to lure his brother Elijah back to Victoria to play with his bro. With our second, if any are still available I'd try to get Keeler (ruck/forward), Barnett (ruck) or Verral (ruck/forward). 

Now that we have Schache and JVR developing nicely, we don't have an immediate need to get a KPF this year and I just don't trust Jefferson at this stage, he may be a good player in time but I find skinny tall forwards are just serviceable ala Mitch Brown and Watts who were both first round draft picks... but who knows maybe he could be a Gunston.

Actually looks like the perfect target with pick 37! He's shown a lot and looks more likely than some other higher fancied tall forward names IMO.

Schach Attack?

We’ve got someone getting ready to sew a new mini-banner for the cheer squad already with this exact same wording! She misspelled Schache just as you’ve done so I pointed it out telling her that after all, we don’t wanna be confused with the Coll or Ess cheer squads. 😁

It’s a shortening to make it rhyme. Not a misspelling. Schache Attack doesn’t make any sense. Schache Attacky seems too gimmicky. But you might want to hold off just in case we go with Schache down backy or unless it’s a Casey banner

This quote is from…????

Coz we’re defs making one. 😁 Tacky or not. I thought Fritsch Blitz was tacky until I befriended Fritta’s mum. And she loves that banner so I’m not saying [censored]. 😁

Someone just suggested “Shaq Attack” 😳 Hopefully they’re kidding.

I’m sure you’re joking but we aren’t changing our draft plans based on Le Shach! I have no issues drafting skinny talls, but if you’re skinny you need to be a special athlete and I’m not sure Jefferson has the speed, height or leap to make up for a thin frame.

Schache definitely isn't the answer to our forward woes, he's just a stopgap solution while we chase a gun forward in the draft or as GNF mentioned we are hunting Mitch Georgiades. But i agree with you on Jefferson, if he has all the tricks to be a gun forward then sure we should go after him but if we have doubts about him then I think we should get best available mid at 13 which looks to be Hollands.

Any chance we package up some future picks to have a crack at the bombers pick 4? I thought I heard it was on the table?

Essendon said they’d consider moving it but don’t want to go too far down the order.

Which is pretty much what every club says every year.

We’d have to make them a crazy offer to go down to 13. I’d be shocked if they moved below 7 and likely not at all

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had

    CENTIMETRES by Whispering Jack

    Our game is one where the result is often decided by centimetres; the touch of a fingernail, a split-second decision made by a player or official, the angle of vision or the random movement of an oblong ball in flight or in its bounce and trajectory. There is one habit that Melbourne seems to have developed of late in its games against Carlton which is that the Demons keep finding themselves on the wrong end of the stick in terms of the fine line in close games at times when centimetres mak

    The Demons were blown out of the water in the first quarter and clawed their way back into the contest but it was a case of too little too late as they lost another close one to Carlton losing by 1 point at the MCG.
