So essentially, once FA etc opens officially, we can sign him as a Cat B before the draft.

He would essentially replace Red Og and not absorb any main or Cat A rookie list spaces.

Thanks for that Pykie, I think it would be poor list management to not pick him up as a Cat B rookie.

It would be ridiculous. We literally have nothing to lose.

If anything, our VFL side needs more 6”4 defenders anyway.

He’s definitely gotten a fair bit better than last year, he was almost drafted last year in a stronger draft.

I’d be snaffling up as many kids from the 2018 draft as possible.

Would probably worth asking Rhyan Mansell if he was interested in playing for our VFL side next year too.

He’s on the TAS combine list, but not listed under our academy.

I hope we haven’t f’ed this up somehow, I.e releasing him from the academy...

One you’ve been through a draft and not selected aren’t you out of content for academy and FS.

I was hopeful Cody Weightman might get to our 2nd but but reports that both St Kilda and Melb are looking at using their first on him counts us out.

Watched the Sandy Vs Cannons game today.

Don’t know how Ryan Byrnes isn’t in the conversation as a top 20-30 pick. Sandy captain, good explosiveness from the stoppages, really clean and had good vision. Lachie Neale clone. Had 32 disposals and 10 inside 50’s. Not a fluke either he is averaging 26 touches and 6 inside 50’s per game along with 4 tackles. If he is there in the 3rd round he’ll be a steal.

Finn Maginness will be a good pick up as a FS for Hawks too. He also had 32. Didn’t stand out as much as Byrnes though.

Daniel Mott was really impressive for Calder, has really good hands in close and tackles hard.

You think Mott will get picked up?

Not sure, haven’t seen his name mentioned too much, other than in the bests for Calder (which is pretty regularly). He played a couple of metro games this year but didn’t get much of a run in his preferred position (centre).

His stats in the nab league are more than handy averaging 26 touches and 4.5 tackles per game.

He also has an invite to the combine and was apart of the AIS Academy. So he had a decent resume!
