Would Crows do 24&25 for 48 or 62 and our 2020 first?

We would then have 24, 25 and 35 that we could use on Georgiades, Riccardi and Bianco?

Fair to say that Knightmare selecting a ruck with our first selection in his mock draft is a serious head scratcher for me.

I would have thought that was the least of our list needs this draft after trading in Cameron and re-signing Lynch.

I'm hoping that Hindsight prevails this year.

Sorry Knightmare.

I can understand we don't need to take a Purer Ruckman with Lynch Pretty much being our 4th Pick but We still should look for a Forward/Ruck IF Possible in Draft with 1 of 3 Picks

He is really a KPP more than a ruck, he has a lot of upside, but I wouldn't take him with our first pick, maybe our second

All you need do is to take a look at Knightmare's historical selection track record
You might want to try watching Under 18s. I've got absolutely no idea how anyone can get draft picks right. I watched a few games a few years ago and to me it's so far off the intensity level that I had no idea who was AFL relevant. Basically, Joel Selwood would smash in and win every bloody contest. How the hell can they tell if the blokes winning them in Under 18s will improve enough to win contests in the AFL? Seriously tough gig.

Sorry Knightmare.

Especially reaching for him when others don't rate him and in the process passing on a number of players he does rate a bt ahead of Bryan (Ned Cahill, Cooper Sharman, Dylan Williams, etc).

I also don't think we're in a position to take a young ruckman this year from a list standpoint - we're overstocked with talls as it is at VFL level so we'd be looking at a situation where our first pick in the draft wouldn't be getting much game time at VFL level (not ideal for his development).

Why's he anglicised his name, without anglicising it. If he's Greek, surely he should be Jorgiades.
Huh? In Greek it pronounced Yeoh-yee-ar-thees . No juh sound in Greek.

It’s definitely anglicized seeing as George is the anglicized version of Yee-or-gos. Giorgos - Γιώργος
