    The KPPs in this draft are on par with the ones next year. Brander and Balta are fantastic both ends, would love either of them. Bonar is a real buddy type, with great kick and speed hes not reliant on winning marking contests.

    I see Brett Anderson has ranked Brander at 14 and Balta at 20. Darcy Fogarty is at 10, l think he should be at the top of our list. If we can grab a forward during this trade period, Watts, Taberner, Close or Crameri. I would like Watts or Crameri out of that group, then l would take Cerra this draft, and next year get Lynch to the club or draft a KPP.

    Aren’t even close imo. Lukosius and both King twins are miles better then any KPP in this years draft.

    They would both go #1 this year despite a year less of development

    And then we find out next year that we have pick 7-8, and all the KPF’s ‘worth getting’ are going top 3. “Oh, well we’ll just wait until next year then” :drunk:

    Yeah i'm still set on Coffield.
    But if you could trade 6 for two picks in the teens and grab Balta/Bonar and Fogarty i'd be stoked.

    I think that's the problem with this draft though, not a lot of key pos quality.

    What KPF do you consider us getting at Pick 6?

    The only slight tick against Cerra is burst away speed, we really can't afford players without it considering how the list has been shaped (misshaped)

    I like Balta’s highlight package, not so much Brander’s. If we end up with Watts, I’d prefer we look elsewhere than Brander. I think they are have similar games. If we can get a star midfielder with kicking skills and speed then I’d prefer to take him at 6 and look for a KPD later in the draft and a KPF next year.

    after watching Richmond win the flag it didn't tell me we don't need to draft a tall forward but it did tell me we need to draft the best available player

    Lukosius has no right to be as good as he is at his age.

    It’s been a very long time since a 17 year old KPP has been this good.

    I think you have got to go best available at 6, unless there is a star kpp.

    I would trade down to 12 and 18 if possible and grab Balta at 12. I reckon he could be anything and I’d be happy if we took him at 6.

    Otherwise I’d take Fogarty with the intention of turning him in to a Stringer type. Not quite a KPF, but at 192cm he could fill the role of second tall forward. He’s only 1cm shorter than Jarryd Roughead.

    Wouldn’t have thought so. If Brisbane take LDU I think GC would look at Dow.
