I look at Steph as a big midfielder who can ruck and Big O as a ruck who can go forward and take a contested mark. Grundy at the Pies is a better version of Steph but doesn't have the back up of Big O. Gawn is a bit of both but another who plays like an extra mid fielder. Lyccett at Port signed for 5 years but is on the outer and more the tap ruckman. Goldstein, Ryder, and McEvoy are too old, Witts would be ok but locked to the Suns as Captain, I take Hickey from the Eagles but if they didn't ditch him this year he is within their salary cap expectations. Nankervis from Richmond not happening nor Lobb from Freemantle although he is more the sort. Sinclare from the Swans would fit by injury prone so there is Marshall from S tKilda. Jacobs, Kreuzer and Nic Nat too old. Ceglar from Hawthorn - a chance but English from the Bulldogs would be lovely but not happening. Its pretty tight as you can see but if Archie does leave as we are thinking he might even though under contract I think it might surprise us all and one of the last first rounders may get it done but it's a hole we have to plug.
At the Draft, I’d be tempted by Nick Bryan from the Oakleigh Chargers at our third pick. Heck, I’d even have him in consideration at our second pick.

Sort of a mini English. But he’s a long term prospect.

If we have a couple of safe picks like Rivers and Rantall I’d be onboard for more of a speculative/project pick like Sharman, Jeka or Bryan.

I’ll wait until the draft pick trade deadline has passed before posting my thoughts in the draft thread, but we’ll be lucky to get one of most people’s preferred targets. The draft would have to go drastically different to most draft watchers rankings for us to get two at our first two picks.

I think your right that they may take on a 'project' young ruckman. I think there is every chance this is Steph's last year. Fagan seem to stick with players playing their roles. If Steph retires the new ruck has to walk right in or we change game style. I would have thought, like big O they already had their eye on a ruckman with a more mature body and bring them to the rookie list but there seems no space. Maybe they rate Eagles highly as the backup now and you call is right, we draft one and build our own, so to speak. I just cant see us doing nothing this year to sure up the ruck division unless they have a trade they think is a done deal for next season.

Just some clarity from those in the know - how do recently delisted Lions players get picked up by other clubs from now on - what are the options?
For example, NRobbo, Archie Smith, Walker?

When/how does this now happen?
There’s a period after the draft that clubs can use to finalise their lists. It’s not uncommon for clubs to wait until this period to add delisted free agents. Allows them to assess spots with the draft completed knowing what young talent they have added. Provides flexibility going into the draft.

I think if they nominate, they can actually get picked up in the National or Rookie draft also.
There is also the pre-season and mid season trade period as well.
Correct they can. Reading between the lines it appears the club expects Smith to nominate for the draft and get picked up by another club.

How do we find a list of players like Archie who have nominated - all I can locate is the "top" 101 young draftees, not established players or mature age hopefuls.

From memory there was some random who had never played footy who nominated either last year or the year before?

Be hilarious if they got the number mixed up and drafted an overweight unfit 50 year old who put their name in on a lark.

*puts in application at work for 2 years special leave without pay*
*gets asked on what basis*
*advises been drafted by Collingwood*
*Ok - why are you *really* wanting time off / you realise there are penalties for lying on government leave application forms right?*
