We don't even need a forward like that as we have Hayward. In fact we don't need to draft a forward at all.

I thought he more or less got the top 20 exactly right every year.
He got 8 of the top 20 right, though the first 7 were fairly predictable with the top 3 being ahead of the rest, Smith not wanting to leave Vic, and the King twins basically being linked to their clubs from early on. He didn't predict Collier-Dawkins or Bobby Hill sliding seven spots, or Chayce Jones rising five spots, or Zak Butters rising four spots.

Super-drafts are also easier to predict because it's usually a lot easier to group the players into tiers. A much more open draft, like this year, is a lot harder to anticipate. Take 2017 for example. You could argue Twomey had a shocker. He only got five players correct. He got Richards and Higgins wrong by six spots, Brander and L. Fogarty wrong by seven spots, Oscar Allen and D. Fogarty wrong by eight spots, Stephenson wrong by 11 spots, and Nathan Murphy and Charlie Ballard wrong by 23 spots. When the draft is open and clubs have less 'obvious' picks to choose from, it means they have so many more options, and less chance of Twomey getting the right one. I believe him in his reporting of who clubs are interested in, but it tells you SFA in terms of what the final decisions will be.

Interesting with Stephenson as well that he was expected to slide because of his minor heart issues, but was taken inside the top 10. Journos and pundits are rarely willing to report the risks and bold moves that the recruiters are willing to take.

p5 = 1878, p32 = 584, p44 = 362
p13= 1212, p17= 1025 (afl.com)

to move up the draft, you always pay overs
p5 = p13 + p17 that's about right
Fiddlesticks - that's too much of a gap. Maybe 13 and 20 might be about evens.
If Kemp is gone at 13 (agree Hawks would be a chance) perhaps Robertson would be there to go with Cooper Stephens at 20. I'd be pretty happy with that and then wouldn't mind a flyer later on a higher risk type.

Biggie Nyuon reckons he's a chance in the second round now btw.

Waste of time giving a pick up when we can just bid at 5/6.
There is 0% chance that gws dont match a green bid at pick 5. I will apologise to you every round of the 2020 season if they dont.

He is the mid we need.
Not going to pretend it's not an incredibly outside chance, but I think they would consider not matching at 3

So be it. Don’t need to sell our entire resources just for a Hail Mary that won’t work anyway. Every chance Flanders, etc will be just as good as Green.

Won't happen.

As much as they could be into Jackson, Ash or Young, there's no way they would turn down an academy product who is rated as highly as Green.

To be Robertson seems like the better choice over Flanders. Robertson is a midfielder and nothing but a midfielder while Flanders is a forward who can play in the midfield. We need a genuine midfielder.

I agree. I posted this potential trade on the Drafts thread exploring how it *could* happen :

I'd like to see Sydney offer 5 + 32 + 2020 1st for Melbourne's 3 and 10.

5 (1878) + 32 (584) = 2462.
3 (2234) + 10 (1395) = 3629

That leaves a 1167 points deficit to be paid for by our 2020 1st. 1167 is about pick 14. In other words, as long as Sydney finish outside the top 4, Dees would end up ahead. If we finish bottom 4 like this year, Dees make out like bandits.

If we got those picks, I'd like to see us bid on Green, force GWS to match, and then take Flanders/Kemp at 4 and Robertson(/Serong/Stephens) at 10. Would solve our midfield issues. We could get Green if GWS didn't match, but i'd see that as unlikely. But if we don't, we have 5 (will probably still get Kemp/Flanders) and then 25, where who knows what we get? The only way to get two good mids is to trade up. The good thing is if the Dees want Young/Jackson, i can't see us going after either. They're just not what we need right now, so Dees would still get one player they want at 5.

Giving up next years first is ok, as we have Campbell and Gulden coming through, so we have priority on two good talents. Would rather get an extra year into two mids, than wait for a first rounder next year.

(added Kemp as an option after hearing Dalrymple speak)
