    Disregarding the annual event of Pies supporters offloading their "dud" Queenslanders, I'd have signed Josh Thomas. Has recontracted with the Pies apparently but he'd have been an ok addition to our midfield depth.

    Noble has stated 'inside mids' as well so he could be a very big possibility. See Brendan Ah Chee is most probably on the move and Ben Kennedy has been delisted. I'm all for bringing in more mids just don't want to be using anything more than third rounders from this years draft and fourth rounders from next years.

    Picks 1, 12, 18, 41

    FA Loss: Rockliff = Pick 19.

    Brisbane:
    In:
    2, 20, 23, 25(5000)
    Out:1,18,19(4933)

    Gold Coast:
    In:
    1,18,19 (4933)
    Out: 2, 20,23,25 (5000)

    2, 12, 20,23,25,41

    Perhaps Gold Coast need something extra? Gives us the flexibility to grab two players in that 22-25(Cameron and Miles) range that Noble mentioned, match a bid for Ballenden and still have picks 2 and 12.

    I like it but would prefer someone else at pick 23. Any chance Bonar is at 23? Talk of him top 10 but I just can't see a club taking that risk especially after 2 knee recos altough admittedly the second operation wasn't a 'fresh' injury it would have still been operated on.

    Bonar is hard to place. 50/50 at being available at that pick. Went with Worpel as a slider as I think he'll end up being one of the top players from this years draft.

    Looks good to me. That's 7 players in... so we would also have to delist/trade Close and C Beams (or someone else) to make it possible, and not upgrade Hammelmann. I like the draft selections though from what I've seen, I'd prefer Hunter Clark to Andrew Brayshaw, if he was still available at 12. Would Gold Coast trade 4 picks for 3 though, what do they really gain, unless there's only one of the top 4 that they really want and we're likely to take him? And we only really need to do it if Cameron says he wants to be traded, otherwise we might as well stick with 1, 12, 18, 19.

    Rumour is that Essendon are majorly in to Andrew Brayshaw, to the point that their pick 11 is practically off the table for a trade.

    If we went for Dow at pick 2, I'd seriously consider Bonar at pick 12 depending on his medical at the combine. Would happy with Hunter Clark or O'Brien.

    Rockliff leaving and us receiving pick 19 in compo is one of those some else "outs".

    I'm with you Cotter101 on J Worpel - of the few times I have seen him play, he has a real hardness about him. Has leadership qualities and is an inside mid/contested ball beast.

    Seen miles play on numerous occasions and is a GOOD VFL /NEAFL player. Has only got one gear and is a depth player.....not a starting 22 player. Ben Kennedy is similar thus delisted.

    I haven't seen anything of Miles in the VFL this year but his exposed form at senior level in prior years is reasonable. A fourth and a sixth in B&F counting in 2015/16 suggests that his form was a bit better than VFL/NEAFL level. The guy also polled 9 Brownlow votes one year too which is an OK effort.

    I'm not desperate to sign him but he'd add something to our list IMO.

    I would be against O'Brien with a top 20 pick personally.

    Rockliff would make 5 out from primary list. We only delisted 4 from primary list plus Grewar. Hence the need for 2 more. I counted Rocky.

    Nah, Ballenden situation means we won't do this.

    He probably doesn't get a top 18 pick at this stage which means we can use both 18 & 19 on other players, but will go before 25.

    Say Ballenden gets bid on at 22, we essentially turn 1, 18, 19, Ballenden with a later pick and some easy cheap points into 2, 20, Ballenden, 25. We lose out.

    Hopefully it's band 2 for Rocky. Then our second rounder for Cameron.

    If we don't get Cameron I wonder if we'd look at trading the band 2 pick for an early second round pick in next years draft.

    Maybe Carlton will need it this year for Kennedy?

    Really? I though Bonar was a definite first rounder, I'd like to get that kid in Lions colours, Worpel would be gold though too

    Would rather keep Rocky compo and take it to the draft... Bonar has some serious athletic potential and should be there at pick 18/19.

    Pick 7 + Pick 8 + blank = Pick 1
