Harry Barnett

202cm 93kg ruckman from SA who's been regarded as the number 1 ruckman in this year's draft.

If the club is looking at a developing ruck then Barnett could come under consideration for pick 13?

Physically more developed then your standard skinny and raw types so you'd think he could play senior footy first couple of year.

Has also played senior footy at SANFL level.

Judging from the highlight reels and respected commentary Harry Barnett would be a great pickup Dazzle he is ready to  go No1 at Casey and backup to take the pressure off Max and Brodie we don’t want either playing injured and it fills a critical long term need.!!

Unless they’re game changing talents I don’t think picking rucks early is a good value proposition.

That said, there’s clearly a point in the draft where getting a good footballer is better than rolling the dice on an inferior talent 

Barnett seems to read the play well and launch/extend his arms when marking far better than most junior rucks.

Whilst not on the level of someone like Jacko he does look a solid athlete too.

I’d probably be a little disappointed if he went at 13, but if we trade back to say pick 20 he’d be a good pick.

How does he fit in with Grundy/Gawny scenario?

Admittedly both G's are nearer the end of their careers than the start but both would have at least 2/3 years Brodie 5 possibly.

Can Barrett play forward better than either star ruck? 

DD any thoughts?

Developing away at Casey with the plan to eventually take over from Gawn or Grundy.

Personally I think there is scope to play AFL early for Barnett due to his size and the fact that he's already played senior footy at SANFL.

I think his career starts out as a forward/ruckman similar how we used Jackson. He's already a better contested mark then Jackson imo and his height and reach may prove that he could be a handy option up forward.

If we were to draft him then I think it's a good idea that he develops a year at Casey especially under the guidance of Gawn and Grundy. Even developing his forward craft would be handy as well.

Thanks DD Seems a good plan and a good enough reason to consider Barrett. Although I am a Jefferson fan now with all the  evidence we can muster. His career and skills are impressive and should develop like Fritta I would think. 

If course a speedy outside mid would not go astray like Allan from WA if he fell our way.

TL and JT would have a specific range of draftees in their mind, whereas We as a collective of Dlanders are driven by our memories of specific weaknesses which we see as critical shortcomings. Some want additional mids that won’t get a game, KPF that are not AFL ready or rucks that will provide depth. This is a very stressful period in the life of a Demon as a Right call will help us continue our upwood climb whilst a couple of bad calls will hasten our decline.!!! In JT we Trust.!!

I like Barnett, has looked better in defence when not rucking in my view. Can take a strong contested grab. Not sure he's the go at 13/14 but if we traded down to a couple picks in the 20s I think he's worth looking at. We shouldn't be going into the season with only Grundy and Gawn as recognised rucks and an untried 18yr old Cat B rookie as back up.

Interesting what might happen if there were two players we liked available after selection 11 or 12. Would we deal then on the night for two picks in the later teens if we thought they might be available around 18 or 19?

I love that we've kept our cards close, most draft watchers have no idea what we will do

I can’t see any way we will go for a ruckman with pick 13, given our current situation, with just adding Grundy, Schache  and a Rookie. We also have Tom Mac back and a father son in a couple of years to develop. We can always add an experienced Rookie if needed in the next couple of years.

Is upwood related to updog?

This kid can really clunk a mark. Haven't seen what his set shooting is like but field kicking looks pretty darn good for a big guy. If we developed his forward craft he could be a very nice asset. 

If we are chasing a top 5 pick ,then he is probably not on our radar.

    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.
