    Based on Walker vs Cameron stat comparison. It Walker for the last 4 years.
    Jenkins should be compared to Lobb due to both being Forward Rucks where his stats are better than Lobb and interestingly Far better than Patton.
    McGovern vs Patton is a slight win to Patton but not by much. And I would expect improvement from both these players this year.
    It not just Improvement from Menzel that we need But CC need a big lift in Output, He has to jump from Potential to actual this year consistently.

    I am not sure how you do your stats but for the last 4 years I am pretty confident that Cameron scored more goals than Tex in at least 3 of them, but I suspect all 4. Cameron is also better suited to full forward and Tex to CHF but in any case I would take Cameron over Tex in a who would you rather.

    JJ cant ruck for shit, but is definately the more effective goal kicker. But GWS dont want for much with Patton and Lobb. Personally I think Gold Coasts key forwards edge both ours and GWS in terms of tall forwards with Lynch and Peter Wright.

    But Eddie carries us a long way and he is a titan of a small forward.

    What's his contract status?

    Also where is Choco living these days?

    That's a couple of things going in our favour if we were to have a crack and he would be ideal.

    We won't be able to fit him into the midfield next year with Dusty, Fyfe and Gibbs all coming over

    Use two sites the AFL comparison and the AFL tables. And I compare all the stat, including Goal Assist. adding Goal assist to Goals and Walker's ontop. It even better for Walker when you compare score involvements. ie adding the points. Walker does need to Kick straighter.
    Therefore I would take Tex over Cameron because he brings other into play he creates more opportunities for the Crows to Score.
    Guess it down to what more important Score involvement or Indivual Goals. To me it a big mistake in just judging a forward on Goal alone.
    Note since 2012 Walker has only missed getting over 100 score assist, in two years due to knee recon 2013 and 2014. Cameron has only reached that mark once in 2015. And I have not added the Points other's kick as GA only count goals
    As for JJ for someone that cannot ruck he hold his own when compare to the rest of the Forward/ Rucks in the competition, And he has more score involvements than most.

    He'll return to his combo role where he can use both his brute strength and his elite speed.

    Now he is young enough to worth a good shot.
    Choco I believe is Vic based coaching AJAX in the VAFA.

    I think he signed a 2 year deal in 2015 so should be coming out of contract, don't get your hopes up though.

    Jeremy Cameron is similar player to Josh Jenkins. Pure goal scorer, contributes little else to the team. Can't find a link but IIRC Cameron came about 15th in the GWS best and fairest despite all the goals. Like Jenkins, if he's not kicking goals then he's not helping the team.

    Absolutely zero in common with Taylor Walker, who is a vital team facilitator in addition to goal kicker, and a way more valuable player overall.

    Yes and no.

    For score involvement, these are the rankings:

    Tex 5th
    Jenkins 15th
    Cameron 96th

    You've undersold Jenkins a fair bit there.
