I can't see a deal getting done here. Essendon would be after an end of first round around. Port don't have the picks required to facilitate the trade. Adelaide will more than likely have picks 10 (Lever), 16, 18 (Cameron). If Gibbs nominates, then one of them will be needed, possibly two. I can't see Adelaide spending any of those picks on Francis. I think this wil drag on through the trade period and we try but only get offered later picks for him. He stays and buckles down and they boys get around him.
