Port posters think this deal is about Jackson Mead. There won't be a bid on Mead before 16, so Port get to use that on another player. But there could be a bid before 29, and if that happened they'd have to use 29 to match. If they haven't got 29, they match with points from the lower picks, possibly going into deficit for 2020 by a small amount.

So they get a player at 16 + Mead instead of having to use 29 on Mead. Which makes sense. Of course the value of that depends on where their 2020 1st lands.

There's some talk they are trying to 'worm' their way into the top-10 by packaging up 2 of 12/16/18. Maybe targetting Dees' pick 8 or Carlton's pick 9?

The success of this trade is in Port's hand. If they have a shocker next season, then the Lions will be gifted a very nice early pick.

Using 29 on Mead is irrelevant.

They either were using that pick to match the bid, or trading it. Either way it wasn't a live pick for Port.

The big question is why did they spend their 2020 first to upgrade pick 29?

Their 2020 1st alone will likely be worth MORE than they received for the entire deal. Then they gave 29 on top of that!

Usually you give up two later picks to move up the order. Not a pick ahead of the pick you get back

They are trying to trade into the top 10

Ports trade means it would be good for us to get another first rounder for next year, no SA competition for what's on offer, so would be good to have a couple of goes at it.

Depends on where our father/son and academy players are tipped to go. It would need to be high end first rounders, or we might be better off trading out of the first round completely.

Are you effectively saying they could already get Mead by going into deficit, so in reality all they’ve done is swap 2020 first for 16? In which case, assuming even draft years, they’d need to finish pretty high to be worthwhile. How does paying back the deficit incurred work?

Next years draft is the most compromised draft ever. The 2020 draft is riddled with father/sons or academy players. Will be interesting how we go next year and were it puts us.

Let's assume Mead gets bid on the very next pick after their current 18. So pick 19.

That's worth 948 points. With a 20% discount, Port are on the hook for 758 points. Pick 29 is worth 653, add in their picks 67 and 68 and suddenly they have enough to pay for him.

So even if they received a bid as early as 19 they would have been able to match with pick 29 and two picks in the 60s.

The entire value of the trade hinges on Port valuing pick 16 more than their 2020 1st

It might not be as bad as many think it will be.

Normally, with a few FSs/Academy tied players (FSAs) , if clubs bid on them at the appropriate picks, the pool of players available to other clubs remain the same and the order of picks is still just as valuable as if there were no FSA players.

For instance this year, if Green is bid on at pick 3 and is where he's rated - and if GWS is forced to match, the players available at 4,5, 6, ... are still available to other clubs - and it takes GWS out of the picture in r1. It's only if GWS manage to get an extra player before Green (by trading in pick 3) that it then compromises it for other clubs.

So normally, if clubs keep clubs with FSAs honest, the compromising shouldn't be too bad.

In addition, clubs having FSAs could also bid on other clubs with FSAs - say we have Edwards as a FS candidate next but we have a pick before WB so we make a bid on their Ugle-Hagan player, WB would match and this would chew up their r1 pick. Ugle-Hagan was never going to be available to other clubs anyway and this takes out WB in r1 - again leaving other players in the available pool still there.

But... if there are too many clubs with FSAs like next year is looking like, the chance of them getting to double dip increases and so compromise the draft.

So the draft next year might not be as compromised and many are fretting as it will be.

The way I see it - and maybe I've missed something:

Before the trade, Port had 12+18+29+scraps. A bid on Mead between 19 and 28 forces them to use 29 (plus some scraps) on Mead.

After, they have 12+16+18+scraps. They get a player, plus they can match a bid on Mead with scraps, admittedly going into a small deficit on 2020. Basically a bonus player at the high end in 2019, on top of Mead.

Now of course if they crash and burn in 2020 that would be costly. But I disagree that "the whole value of the trade" depends on their 2020 first. IMO it's a fair gamble, given they get a guaranteed extra pick on top of Mead in 2019.

The bonus player at the high end in 2019 has directly cost them their 2020 first

How did they upgrade from 29 to 16? It cost them that 2020 1st.

It's not a bonus pick given they had a 2020 1st and now they don't.

Do they have a highly ranked father son next year so are trying to get rid of their 1st round pick then?

Schofield, but unless their first round pick next year is very late teens then unlikely he goes that high at this stage. Not that it matters now anyway.

I don't think they are ... they will back in their 3 picks from 12 to 18 .
They have identified that this is the sweet spot in a strong draft .
I agree it’s a good spot to be but that Carlton Cat man yesterday says they are trying to get in the top 10 and today this goes down and he reckons it’s part of the plan.

If Lukosis wants to return to SA next year, they don’t have a first round pick either.
