    I know it's early but some players are making moves in their 2nd year.

    If done today this is how I see it going.

    1) Sam Power Pepper
    2) Taranto
    3) McGrath
    4) Witherdon
    5) McCluggage
    6) Graham
    7) Bowes
    8) Florent
    9) Parfitt
    10) Fisher
    11) Marshall
    12) Sam Petrevski Seton
    13) Berry
    14) English
    15) Ratugolea
    16) Venables
    17) Simpkin
    18) Logue
    19) Hayward
    20) Darcy

    I'd have McGrath and Taranto ahead of SPP

    I'd have Parfitt higher than all of Graham, McGluggage, Bowes, Graham and Powell-Pepper.

    Powell-Pepper is the most overrated player on that list.

    I tossed up between SPP and Taranto at 1. Ess would love a future inside mid bull.

    Would be nice but we didn't have two early picks and wouldn't give up McGrath for either of them.

    None of them have shown a great deal thus far; no real early standouts for kids who look like utter stars. Taranto and Petrevski-Seton look like they might have that star potential, and McGrath already has the air of a more experienced player. Jarrod Berry has been great for the Lions at pick 17.

    In the nature that this is an actual re-draft rather the ranking I wouldn't hesitate about using anything after pick #10 on Will Setterfield, will be great to see what he can do with another off-season in the gym, is a very talented inside mid.

    Wouldn't have Witherden myself that high, good to see non-Carlton fans have identified Fisher has passed Petrevski-Seton at this stage. I'd say in terms of upside a lot of those guys placed below the likes of Powell-Pepper and Graham have the potential to pass them in the near future and would probably prefer drafting a guy like Florent over Graham myself.

    Also Ainsworth should be in that top 20.

    Id definitely have Stewart in the top 3 with Taranto and McGrath. I'd also add Luke Ryan into the top 20 tbh

    Yeah I thought I had missed one. I would have him closer to 8 than 3.

    Powell-pepper needs to show some consistency this year.

    Taranto ahead of him

    Geelong would be ecstatic with this draft.

    Parfitt is arguably the best player of the draft who has exploded this year (21.6 disposals, 1.2 goals and 104 supercoach a game). Really clean with the ball, knows how to find it both inside and outside and is a super tackler. Stewart has been superb and would be in the AA conversation. Ratugolea is so raw he's still mooing but he's got serious ability with incredible physical attributes. Nobody thought he'd be playing yet let alone having a solid impact on games.

    Completely agree, Parfitt has been excellent this year.

    SPP has all the attributes to be Dusty Martin 2.0 but I wouldn't have him at 1. From what I've seen, SPS (not a mistake) will probably end up being the best player in this draft with Marshall, McCluggage and a few others not far behind. Marshall would be stiff not to be top 5 right now as well.

    Powell Pepper can’t kick. He was built like a bull, so his improvement won’t come there.

    Not a fan of his work.

    Would be unfortunate if you used the #1 pick on someone who's about to go to jail :p

    You'd have a very strong argument that in a redone draft both Parfitt and Stewart would clearly be taken in the top 10, and as for Ratugolea, while more will become apparent in a few years, has the potential to be a serious player. Great work by Wells in this one.

    Excited for Venables to get a good run at it to show his worth, kid will be a star. Shame he's out for the next 2 months, he was really beginning to find his feet. Very tidy disposal, quick and agile with a fend off and knows how to find the goals. Can see him being a dusty lite in a few years when he ups his production, gains a bit of size and spends more time in the middle.

    McCluggage in a couple of years will be top 2 if not number 1.

    Another Lions draftee Cedric Cox has shown some great signs, could be top 20/15 when he develops some more.

    I think English goes very high in this draft if done again.

    Almost for nothing too as 17 was part of the deal with GWS which was 1 for 3/16. Made no difference as the player we wanted slipped to 3

    Why has Ainsworth dropped off? From a top 5 pick to barely making the top 20.
