Yeah, I'd assume we'll look to bring in at least 1 role player via cheap trade & we'll possibly lose one the same way.
Richmond have 4x Picks within Pick 28, then have 40 + 44. Those picks might be available for a future pick if we want a 4th pick in the draft - save using 62 or whatever
We've got 3x picks within 25, then not until 56 - which will be able 60 odd by that stage.
I'd not be rushing to force guys out to make way for Pick 60. Even 1 more spot (Ollie, maybe) would give us plenty of room.

*I think Skinner would be more of a Hartigan replacement than a TO'B replacement.
By keeping 1x guy on the list, we have depth for KPD / KPF / 2nd Ruck / 3rd Tall Forward / 3rd Tall Defender.
We lose him & we're either exposed in these areas or we have to replace him, probably with multiple/lesser players & he's durable/available (I don't recall his last injury).
Sure - if...

They've got 3 + 19 + 22 or something. That's 3x more brand new, highly skilled kids. I wouldn't think they have any need to trade out 3 for say 7 + 25 & bring in a...
