I'd be reluctant to trade this years first. The only times we have had top 10 picks in the last 10 years we've picked up Macrae, Stringer, Bont, Naughton and Smith and a lot of the high profile trades haven't really met expectations. Wingard last year is a perfect example. He seemed to be exactly the type of player we needed to help balance the list but I don't think many would be advocating we trade Smith for Wingard now.

I think we should be targeting the free agents with the extra cap space. Coniglio would be the big fish but we should also throw some money at Astbury, Tomlinson, Elliot and Day as they would all fill a list need.

I'd also consider putting a reasonable offer in front of Kruezer or Goldstien for a couple of years and if we wanted to be bold we could offer NicNat a hefty contract that Westcoast might be reluctant to match with his recent injury history.

I'd have a look at trading our 3rd rounders to GWS. They have Essendons and their own first rounders and an academy kid who likely gets a bid before either pick. Then no picks till 50 plus. Our 3 thirds should hold significantly more value than GWS's first and our second and a couple of thirds would be more points than Essendons first.
I agree. If anything, I wouldn't mind trying to secure another first this year, because there's a lot of talent in the first round this year. Grabbing an extra pick in the teens could meaning getting both Kemp and Taheny. Only way I'd trade our first is if we came across an opportunity we simply couldn't pass on (Cameron for example).

More importantly, the talent seems to be the type we need (plenty of first round prospects who running types with goal sense).

Caleb Serong worth looking at.
Has a bit of a Shaun Higgins/Toby Greene type style to the look of him.
2 early goals v Allies.

I know we have biggest issues than our backline however Will Gould looks like a ready made Morris replacement with more attacking flair. Has versatility also, having played a little up forward and through midfield as well.

Reckon we are more likely to trade out next years and go heavy for second round picks/late firsts next year to make up the points for JUH and Ewan. Pretty much would get two first round picks next year for nothing.
Is Ewan really considered a 1st round chance next year? Fantastic if so.

Best news is that he is 174cm. Fits the small forward mould perfectly.
Still a bit to grow you’d think but yeah seems very small. From what I’ve heard he’s played mostly mid and half back this year so doesn’t seem like a ready made small forward but we’ll see how his draft year goes! I’d love if he could lock down a solid wing role to assist hunter. Exciting times ahead!

178cm* could have a bit more growth. Been mostly a defender though.

Joshua D'intinosante who won Northerns B&F last year is who I'd be interested at having a nibble at around the third round for us this year in that small forward mould.

Trying to work out how to get him and Luke Jackson, no 198cm guy has the right to move like he does. He is a freak.
