    He had one of best work rates of the SA kids when I watched him in nationals - so don't think it's an arrogance issue in terms of his form

    Just don't think his skills ( esp by foot) hold up under that level of pressure

    You've gotta be pretty damn good skills wise as an outside player at that level and his weren't

    The work rate and overlap run was , didn't think he had gear change speed but was a bit like a Simon Goodwin - very good consistent runner from end to end

    Reckon we are only taking a senior list of 38.
    Leaves two spots open should Beech Greenwood & Keath have big years whilst still on minimum wage.

    4 Draft Picks
    2-3 Rookie Picks

    Was checking out Foxtel to see if the draft will be on again this year. I was surprised to see that Fox is only allocation 30 mins to the draft or have I misread this.

    What I would like in terms of positional players:

    3 midfielders;
    1 developmental KPF (not a tweener);
    1 small forward (agility and speed);
    1 very developmental KPD;

    Rookie: 1 ruck, plus whatever else.

    I like this, although I would change small forward to small defender (not a half back)

    Normally they take a minimum of 30 minutes just to cover the top ten picks not to mention the remainder of the selections.

    Thanks for that. I just went and checked and sure enough you are right. However this afternoon there was only a 30 min programme so it has changed. But the main thing for me is that it is on all the way through.

    Disagree, Hugh has been talked about as the likely number one for at least the last half of the season [He may still go 1] and it's only been the last week or so that some media have changed over to McGrath for that honour. What mother's preference wouldn't be for their son to be closer, especially when the other options are Brisbane or Perth...none that I know any how. Think your reading something into it that doesn't exist, I certainly don't see that as pretentious, just a normal motherly reaction.

    McGrath was first mentioned about a month ago when it was confirmed Essendon wouldn't be stripped of number 1

    Also a fair perspective and I'm definitely not parent so I don't know but I just can't fathom riding and tracking each result to see who will finish last (especially so far out from the draft where things can change).

    Certainly hope they use 5 picks at least and use the last for Ben Jarman if still there.
    Think a lot we can achieve in this draft to build for future and maybe grab someone that has impact this season after missing out on Gibbs - Barlow.
    13. --- Definitely a mid and maybe one with inside and outside ability with some X factor about.
    43. -- We have chance here to still get good pick and must be best available that slipped for whatever reason. ( recruiter had him as 2nd pick type ).
    53. --- Try to get a KPP with this pick if not at 43. Although currently have covered we are light on for future or cover injury etc.
    Rest. ---- Believe need a ruckman as one as concerned with Jacobs decline and think although like ROB feel much the same of and maybe a Gawn-- Goldy bigger but competitive type more to future needs. Yes don't grow on trees but have to roll the dice.
    Think a review of some of delistings or VFL -- WAFL --SANFL more mature to see if there one that could add something .

    Don't believe we would get a ruckman on the main list, unless they are well in front in order of best pick. We currently have 3 ruckmen in Jacobs , ROB and Hunter, Plus Dual role players in JJ and Dear
    Believe they may look for a rookie Ruck ie Sweet, Ladhams, or even one of those US giants on the cat B list, but not on the main list

    Mids - mot hard to find.

    KPF/KPD - two birds one stone - McClarty
    Small FWD - Stengle or LeBois

    If we could get Stengle and McLarty plus three good mids, I'll be the happiest Crows supporter of all :D
