The Bulldogs have been strongly linked to giant Ethiopian sensation Khaloub Denial, Big KD who stands
at an impressive 222 cm and weighs 105 kg has impressed scouts with his control of the Sherrin. Asked
for comment Bulldogs president Peter Gordon said "We have been into Denial since the end of the 2016
season."
222 cm? I'm in denial.

8 would end up 9 after GWS takes Green, who I'm sure would go before McAsey. I think he'd be an awesome pick at 9.
Yep totally agree a 195+ cm Key defender/forward and is reportable as a doggies fan, must get.
Would be keen as for Elijah Taylor with the 2nd pick.
can do the x factor moments but not consistently across the board. Made the U/18's AA team in the fwd line.
"TIM KELLY is his mum's second cousin. The Kickett brothers – Dale and Derek – are on his dad's side of the family, while Nicky Winmar and Paddy Ryder are also in his bloodlines" per the AFL website.

Would definitely be happy with a McAsey pick up in the first round. Would take Kemp if he was still there to add some breakaway speed to our midfield, but likely he will already be gone

Josh is a solid VFL player but I think he lacks the skills and, particularly the pace for AFL. Happy to keep him on as a Footscray player.
No where near AFL quality. Would be a wasted spot , Just as the spot Hayes has taken up.
People on here were seduced by Hayes as well pre draft. Silly selection !

There is a real chance Kemp could be there and he was my original first choice, but its unknown how he come back after a ACL.
How will this affect his breakaway speed?
The highlights I have seen on McAsey are similar to Naughton/ McGovern in his marking ability and intercepts at the same age. (That's not to say he will be that good, he needs a bit of muscle like most kids), plus he's also a doggies supporter so he'll be even more invested in the club for loyalty and effort. No potential go home factor...better retension.

Could see Kemp slipping past top 6 depending on trade period.

Hes so talent that an ACL won't scare clubs imo

Would McAsey still be there with our pick?

And if we do for Martin, how do we land him? Our 2020 pick?
Martin for our 2nd, sign me up.
Martin for our 1st, that's too much, we need KPP more than Martin. McAsey is that good, and can be really good with experience.
2nd may work as he has just been dropped. Which also scares me off...how bad do you have to be to be dropped by GC, Damn!!

McAsey is my preferred pick for our first pick. But given the lack of talls in this draft, and the fact many teams need some, I doubt he will slide to us unless we slide up. De Koning, is another option in the second round, but once again likely rising than sliding, still a little raw. Day is shorter, only 187cm, but is creative off half back, can kick start rebounding chains and capable of a shut down role.

Is Day different enough to someone like Lachie Young? Just feel like I'd be hesitant to grab any mids or back flankers too early considering we have too many as it is

What's your view on Josh Worrell also with the Dragons?
Cal Twomey has him at 11... 195cm/74kg Key defender/forward.

The WA ruck could be a shout to play KPD at Afl. Not sure he’s tall enough for an afl ruck.

Honestly would be happy with either believe Kemp is a Bendigo boy so go home is a non factor with Kemp. Also could have a very good spine long term with McAsey AS KPD

Given Cordy, Wood and Williams have a terrible win rate in one on one contests, we will need a medium type that is solid at that, plus decent at the other aspects of a modern day defender. Feel we could do with a genuine medium to compliment the talls

Both he and McAsey have both played forward and defence, both showing capabilities at both ends which Bevo will love. Worrell is more experienced as a defender, but I prefer McAsey as he is 12kg heavier and strong in contests and packs, which is what we lack. McAsey will be more ready made for AFL. Hence I said prefer him as our first pick. Mentioned the other two as they could be around in the 20's, Worrell wont slide that far back. Would like to see us go a 1-2 punch with defenders if we have both our first two round picks available. Worrell will likely take a couple or so years longer before he can compete with the big forwards

What pick are we looking at if we finish 7 or 8? Does that make McAsey very unlikely now?
Haven’t followed this thread as much this year but looking forward to it getting going.
* Hopefully finish a bit higher than or 8 after finals play out.

McAsey must be the only Bulldogs supporter who is hoping we miss out on the finals.

If we make finals, I reckon we miss out on McAsey. Which sucks because I feel he is perfectly what we need, tall defender who is already built. Will likely have to suss off him which clubs are hot on him, and trading up ahead of them pre draft or on draft day

TBH I think we miss anyway. Sammy Power has been vocal about us needing to spend our cap and bring experienced players into the side.
There are some decent tall options who might slide late if we want to go down that path. I suspect we trade two players in at least, a KPD and an outside runner.

Josh has shown significant performance improvement since being given the captaincy responsibility during Pruden's injury. Scott is another who could come under rooky consideration.
