Not bad, think the top 6 is bang on but I'd change the order. My guess at a top 10 by the end of 2021:
Realistically 7-10 could be anything.
Wouldn't be surprised to see Rowell, Coniglio, J...

Throw a blanket over Fyfe, Dusty, Judd, Danger, Cousins etc (not including Voss, Hird and Buckley who played almost half of their careers in the 90s)
Although if I was doing a top 5 since 2000 (mids only)

So no, not GOAT...
FB: Williams - L Young - Butler
CHB: Daniel - Cordy - Crozier
C: B Smith - Dunkley - Hunter
HF: Dale - Ugle-Hagan - Vandermeer
FF: Schache- Naughton - Weightman
R: English - Bontempelli - Macrae
I/C: McLean - Richards - West - Cavarra
Have probably forgotten someone, but damn out midfield and...
Dogs or Brisbane
Dogs have a midfield of English, Bontempelli, Macrae, Dunkley, Hunter and B Smith all under 30 with Libba amd Treloar just 30 and tons of depth in McLean, Lippa, West etc
In 3 years you would also expect Naughton and JUH to be a formidable forward combination, hopefully some...
Then we keep him. Not too phased, just hope the club doesn't fold and trade him because they don't want a player who has requested a trade.
Dunkley, Merrett & Shiel would be a formidable midfield (with McGrath, Heppell, Caldwell as well). I would just do the trade if i was Essendon. Two first...
Toughy, last year I would of said no issues with any of Dusty, Fyfe or Danger as #1. But I reckon Dusty is now #1, no issue with people who put Fyfe #1 though.
I have based it off a little bit of this years form + what they have achieved over the past few years, which is why Steele isn't on...
Dusty and Danger will go down as all time legendary players.
Selwood and Cotchin both outstanding captains.
I'd probably go Danger + Selwood if I could take a duo as 18 year olds, couldn't go wrong with either pair though.
