    So if we have it in mind to pick up a mature state-league version of Nank or Riewoldt, could that occur during the pre-season or rookie draft? Or are some of these guys available during the national draft on Nov 24?

    If they’re available in the rookie or pre-season drafts, it’s because they were overlooked in the national draft.

    I'm thinking we are probably looking to utilise four picks in this draft so another delisting is on the cards.

    Also reckon we have entered into an arrangement with the Lions whereby they have agreed not to select Naish with Pick 18 as part of the Pick swap.

    If they take Ballenden @ 15 (which is their desire and the reason they negotiated the swap) then that effectively takes 15,17,18 & 20 out of play for Naish. Interstate clubs also hold picks 11-14 which is a bonus !!!

    Pick 25 is worth 756 points which grossed up for the discount equates to 945 points. This will allow us to match West Coast's offer should they decide to select Naish @ 21.

    My perfect draft would be Oscar Allen ,Naish andToby Wooler a 193cm 90 kg key forward from oakleigh chargers,he's a good mark decent kick,and great endurance,he's also very good at ground level with tackling pressure acts etc.
    I would also like to get Brandon Starcevich 187cm 88kg midfield/forward/back man from Wa ,he's a real competitor no matter what position he play's ,strong in the air and has decent skills.

    No arguments from me.
    Hopefully we can snare Allen @ 17.

    I like what they have done, it looks like we will preserve picks 17 and 20 as long as there is no bid on Naish before 9.
    From pick 9 we would give up picks 25,53 and 55.
    From pick 13 we would give up picks 25 and 53
    From pick 14, it's picks 25 and 55
    From pick 20, which is ours we would only give up pick 25
    You would have to select him at 25 regardless, picks 53 and 55 can only cover from pick 34 upwards

    No You have to use your picks in order.

    If a bid comes before 17 then we must use 17 first and the 20 and then 25 until we have met the required points

    It's a ridiculous system. Just make it like it used to be, you can take any eligible father-son selections with your last pick. Easy. Every club will get their turn over time, except maybe GC or Brisbane because no one stays there long enough :D. At the very least make it that if a bid is made you use your next pick and move on.

    He looks talented very strong over head,and quick off the mark,also adds pressure in the forward line,at 190cm he looks a third forward or back man,lm not sure on his endurance because of his injuries over the last couple of years,but he could end up a wing man
    Clubs must like him to be invited to the combine,but he's a tough one to say what round he will go.

    Here's the Draft points table.

    29 years old 15 March next year.

    Of his 5300ish possessions about one third of them are contested and has 5 contested marks in the last three seasons from 212 marks.

    So he does not really solve their inside mid problem

    They would have been better placed picking an inside mid at #10 and giving us #16 for 26 yr old (next year) Miles

    Spot on @Gracie they're good but the lack of hardness and lack of desire for repeat contest got shown up on the biggest stage. Losing Lever doesn't actually hurt that, but Gibbs as the difference.... Bemusing....
