Heard through my source that Crows looking to trade pick 4 for picks 7 and 10 (Freo) or with Geelong (14 amd 17 along with something else)...

Shiver me timbers....:oops:
Would be happy with 7 and 10 personally.

It's so hard splitting individuals from 4 to 10 that this is the best year to split back to two top 10's imo.


Would be dump truck full of pig shit time if we traded 4 for 14 and 17

It's been on the cards for awhile, I just can't see us making a selection at 4.

Keep hearing it's an even draft, this could be the year to do it!

I'd rather keep 4.

Quality over quantity every day of the week. One Red Baron or two pretty good pilots?

However, 7 and 10 I could stomach. Means we've traded 9 and 19 for 7 and 10.

14 and 17 for 9 and 19 can piss right off.
It depends on where you rate. If we rate who we take at 4 as being available at 7, then you'd look to move down and move up other picks in return. Like we did with Lever. Unfortunately for us there we didn't move quite high enough to take Maynard who we were really after.

Stephens at 7, Kemp at 10.

Hawks have brought in 3 ready made key position players. Really needed to strengthen their defence as they don't have any quality tall defenders. Frawley isn't that great & will be under pressure from Frost & Hartley. Also, allows them to play Sicily as the loose 3rd tall.
If it was another club making those moves and not Hawthorn there would be so many people bagging the club for going full Carlton.

Who said pick 4 will be better quality? Just look at any "re-done" drafts from the last 10 years. Pick 4 will be lucky to still be in the top 10 most times. Would happily swap 4 for 7 and 10 vastly improving the odds of quality
