    Don't suppose Stephen Rowe played 100 games for norwood in his 4 seasons pre-Crows?

    Wouldn't matter if he did, father/son eligibility requires 200 sanfl games.

    Is there a ruckman that might justify a first rounder this year? Our ruck stocks aren't inspiring.

    Port will draft Rowie's son, it's just too perfect for it not to happen.

    Unless we lose some one at the end of the season, I don't think we have too many urgent needs. We do need another key defender but I wouldn't be using an early pick on one as he would mainly be a depth player - at best 3rd string to Talia and Lever. We could probably also do with a mid size defender as well an inside mid but these aren't so important as you could make the argument that we need a key forward and good outside mid equally as much.

    With this being said a lot can change in a season. Dear and Himmelberg might end the year as defenders or Gallucci and Milera might disappoint. This time last year I would have thought a key forward was most in need but McGovern and Dear both had better seasons than I expected and now a key forward isn't so urgent.

    I will leave this prediction here:

    If Jackson Edwards looks like a top 15 draft prospect heading into the draft, the AFL will change the father/son rules to make it considerably harder for us to draft him.

    That's not very adventurous! You'll have to be much more specific about how you define "looks like a top 15 draft prospect", so that we can hold you to account for your prediction. Too much wriggle room there. ;)

    We need a tall contested blue chip mid

    Fogarty and O'Brien ( a bit more outside but a jet ) would be my most favoured

    Maybe Rayner 3rd if he keeps improving

    what do you make of his stabby kicking action?

    seems to tick every other box, the way he moves makes it looks like he's playing guys a grade below.

    If we happen to finish in that 5-8 bracket and there is no bid on Edwards (i see him 10-15) and no bid comes in, one we seriously look at is Hunter Clark.

    Crowden is very much worth a look in late draft. Even more so considering the potential loss of picks matching an Edwards bid
