I’d be definitely happy with MFC picking  Phillipou. He would have time to develop and a forward line featuring him and JVR and Kozzzy and Fritta would be very dangerous indeed.

Normally not a fan of highlight reels but he looks the goods.  Great balance, good hands and kicks straight!!  Also possibly the longest legs I have ever seen!!

Nice long arms, too ... with strong hints of reach and 'hang' time ... just like Liam Jurrah. Perhaps not quite as fast but that can be worked on ... youthfulness is an asset ... turns on a small circle, so that is a start. Beautiful kick and prepared to go the distance with those kicks. Thus, knows his game already. Got my support - get in there with the early pick, Demons. For a decent forward coach, he has the essentials to develop and win games.

Not sold on Keeler to be honest. I see too much of Casey Sibosado if some can remember a while back.

I don't see too many defensive or 2nd efforts. Jackson had that and was of of his biggest strengths.

I also have heard that his fitness and work ethic can be a bit of a concern and may need some work.

I put Jefferson in the same bracket. 

I remember the Summer of Sibosado well. Another example of potential being left on the Boulevard of Broken Dreams and Wasted Potential.

Agree that Keeler is far from perfect but there is a bit to like and in the right environment with the right attitude he has the potential to be very very good. Just like your comparison with LJ he is probably a better mark and kick than Jackson was at the same age - does he have the desire and will to be a top-grade AFL footballer? Thats the big question our recruiters need to ask and answer

However, given our list profile and lack of good mobile talls I'd be surprised if he wasn't in the conversation for pick 13

Yes his highlights are excellent and reminds me of a young Franklin but slightly better overhead.

Interesting series of marks by Keeler - hang time and extraordinary reach overhead, some hang for chest marks, taken on the chest and then the arms enfold the ball; can get low for the knee-high marks and taps; leads well and well out of the square - sometimes outside 50 - and he can kick 'em from there, no problems. Great talent with some big time coaching - very handy.

I think Serhat Temel would be a good option for this pick.

Maybe Matthew Panos if Temel is already taken.

What an absolute blast from the past is Temel.

People use to get sucked in by his man child frame when in reality he was just another Billy Morrison.

Haha Billy was actually a Melbourne supporter growing up and is back to being a Dees member also.

#13 feels like no-man’s land to me in this draft: outside the top talent and a fraction beyond genuine slider territory (I seriously doubt we’re getting Phillipou). We should moonwalk out of this one. 

Would be looking at West Coat for #20 for example, or the Giants for their #19. Then see what offers we get for a that sweet spot on draft overnight and maybe slide even further.

Could equal another healthy future first and an upgrade on our second rounder, and then pluck a couple mid-to-late 20s picks to fill our spots in this draft, a la Sparrow and Jordon in 2018.

Go into 2024 as premiers with three first round draft picks and just as many second-rounders and watch everyone have a meltdown because the world is unfair and we win.

Where is he playing now days, I remember he was playing in the Northern Football League years ago.

If I remember correctly also, he was invited to do a pre season with the Dees under Neale Daniher one year after he was delisted.

ur thought process is 13 isnt a good spot to pick a talented player but if we slide back to 19 or 20 we will have more luck? how does that make sense

Anyone who is enamoured by whatever falls to or who they're targeting at #13. We're not in a rebuild.

I'm [censored] at rating draft talent. All I have read though is that beyond #6 there is a blanket plus some stay-home arrangements. Of course next year is a better pool (it always is). We traded forward cookies for years. We can sell them again to get up, or just back out for a year and collect the rewards. We have a fairly healthy list (sans KPF, which we don't get in the draft).

I can see us potentially trading this pick if the player we want is gone and there's not a slider. I'd think the teams most likely to want to trade a future 1st are those with new coaches - Nth, GWS or StK, with Nth and GWS holding other teams 1st rounders. So it could be something like Melb give pick 13, GWS give picks 31 & 57 (2022) and Rick 1st (2023).

Guys like Keeler, Lemmon, Barrett could be still available at 31 or 37 (I haven't factored in the academy moves) to help top up our talls and then there's always a slider who was predicted to go earlier or the ability to get someone who adds the x-factor (like Munkura) at 37 and it wouldn't be far off the right spot. We'd then have an extra pick up our selves if a bid for Emile-Brennan comes earlier than expected. Hopefully he'll slip through to Cat B rookie.

If we don't trade this pick, i think we just get the best possible player at 13, which might be Jefferson.

the only reason people are saying this years draft is shallow is because they have only seen these kids play this year, this is the crop of kids that have been mostly affected by covid and barely played over the past 3 years.

Doesn't mean there isn't talent there, in fact there could be a lot of hidden talent, which is where the best talent scouts come into play.  keep and eye on the kids that get picked around the 25-40 mark.  could be some real diamonds in the rough.

No developing talls please, they will take 5 years before they are ready and our time is now. There are a number of tall forward and back free agents coming up. l would be going after another small forward to help kozzie and cover for the significant hole he leaves in our list if he leaves. Small forwards also contribute and develop quicker. Jacob Konstanty sounds like someone that has some goal sense and can tackle. Also has some upside given his only recent return to footy.

And finishing 13th in the Melb Cup  6 or 7 places above 19 or 20 does provide ONE advantage, greater prize money but generally means you are a better horse.

Picks after top6/8 often are called as lower or out if elite but that doesn't mean they are not good players and that no 20 pick is  better. 

Sliders are often players who have suffered injuries over the draft year and slide because if it but can be dodgy  with a bad knee or other perceived or real disadvantage. 

Kossie was No 12 and  is a better player than Sparrow or Jordan. In the 20's or 30's. 
Your reasoning is not logical nor based on any facts just fantasy in believing this sort of [censored].

In 2013 the No 13 selection was Patrick Cripps probably number 1 today, recruiters who picks 1-12 must be now kicking themselves.

If you have a look at the history of pick 13 it is scattered with some exceptional players over the years some like Jack Riewoldt, Taylor Adams, Shane Crawford, Robert Murphy, Daniel Talia and Nick Dal Santo just to name a few others.

So a slider sometimes turns out better than the number 1 of that year.

    BLINK OF AN EYE by The Oracle

    In the year 2022, we learned that the fine between ultimate success in sport and failure can be measured in the blink of an eye. The Melbourne Football Club began the year where it had left off in 2021 - as the powerhouse of the AFL men’s competition.  They steamed towards the halfway mark of the season taking all before them until their winning streak of ten in a row (17 overall since the latter part of the premiership season) came to a crushing end with consecutive losses at the hands of

    CHANGES 2022 Part 03 by The Oracle

    Part Three - Comparing apples with pomegranates by The Oracle One of the truly pointless exercises after each year’s draft is the game over which club “won” the period in question. The reality is that there is no winner or loser at the time and it’s only years further down the track when a full assessment of how the picks turn out can be made, that the winning hand is revealed. And the draft results cannot be considered in isolation; you need to look at where each club stood before the

    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

    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

    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
