Not worried about any of our core guys leaving. Maybe one of the young guys like West or Butler get a 3 year deal with decent coin from someone else but that is the cost of doing business to keep everyone else.
Who do we think is taking #2? Tim English?
...but it just drops us out of that range of picks this year that gets us one of the players we rate as discussed here. One might sneak through, but should we be taking that risk with a pick #2? Could GWS consider it - yes. Do I think we're likely to actually trade with Richmond - no, I don't.
...the year including beating the #6 Cowboys, two thumping wins, and only loss being against #4 Rams away from home.
Why wouldn't they be #1 or #2?
Technically 11th and that seems reasonable. I feel Lance has shown he is an upgrade and should be better week on week. Their D is legit...
13 into 19 - I agree
As much as I'm a Jordy Clark fan, I'm reaching the point where #22 could be better used elsewhere.
Are you really keen on #2? Would you be prepared to buy it in a Lobb trade? Like the way we bought #19?
So maybe this re-opens the possibility of our #7 + #15 for GWS #2? We know (or at least we've had rumoured) that the Giants are into Andrew and most draft nerds have him still available at #7, and then they can potentially use #15 in some form to secure Lobb (eg. #15 for Lobb + 2nd rounder)...
Why not? Do they want to have no picks the whole draft after its wiped out matching pick #2?
They should be buying future firsts. They can always offload a bunch of firsts in the trade period before the draft for a pick ahead of him or future selections again.
They can watch on with tears in their eyes as GWS bid on Daicos at #2.
The only question is, do North bid on Daicos and Darcy at #1, or just take Horne, leaving Collingwood to know they threw away Callaghan at #2?
