Hi Folks,

Was interested to see if there was interest in a draft game with the saints fans on bigfooty being assigned a team and selecting on their behalf. I organised a draft game a few years back (I believe in 2017). It was good fun but was put off at the time by an annoying poster, who shall remain nameless but think he's been largely moved on thanks to all your good work. This poster would DM me to push posters to hurry up their selections and also be pushy in the thread. Note that if said person messages me after this you will be blocked.

I digress but if you're interested reach out and I will assign you a team. Teams will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If you have any suggestions on how this should be run I'm all ears. I will tag posters to the teams they've been assigned to.

Last time I took the saints and from memory I selected Clark, Bonar and Clavarino. Try not to hold Bonar and Clavarino against me. This time I'll be the recruiter for the tigers based on their draft haul.

With pick 20 Brisbane selects...

Mitchito Owens

We thought long and hard about his pick.

While there are options to invest in a long term ruck (Conway) or develop another KPP at either end, the temptation to pick this rapidly rising prospect was just too great.

He will probably start at half back & the push through the midfield as he develops but he could be a massive spark of excitement and is well worth rolling the dice on given our list profile and current premiership push.

Mitchito Owens
Midfielder
190cm/85kg
24/9/03
Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro

Owens was a late call-up to Vic Metro's under-19 championships clash with Vic Country in July but he made a statement with a 29-disposal and seven-mark game that put him on the map as a possible top-30 pick. The St Kilda Next Generation Academy player is a hard-running option who is relentless with his work ethic from end to end. His last three games for the Dragons saw him average 23 disposals.
Et tu, Brute?

A guy I really like Sydney select , Lewis Rayson.
great accumulator.Glides across the ground, improved through the year. Reminds me of Kade Simpson. Think he could push up the ground too.

There’s a sense of emptiness in the Adelaide war room.
Jordan Dawson in trade and Ben Hobbs with our first pick.
Then we sit and watch Matthew Roberts slide down the board.
Incredibly, he is still unselected just four picks before our second round.
Hang on Matthew, slide another four picks and the AFC will have had the perfect draft/trade.
But then the intern delivers our coffees to the war room and remarks how Matthew is still unselected and only four picks away from us.
All our heads dropped as this is the draft equivalent of using the “percentage” word during a game.
Sure enough, next pick and Matthew gets called.
So close yet so far…..
The intern has been banned from the war room forever.

Time to suck it up, and use Plan B.

AFC choose Jack Williams, a 195cm key forward from East Fremantle, to partner Riley Thilthorpe as our KPF’s for the next decade.

Geelong select Shay Linke from Central Districts.

190cm midfielder , really like this player has that rare trait of time in traffic uses the ball well but will need to add some weight.

West Coast select Corey Warner

Weight 74kg

East Fremantle, Western Australia

POSITION: Balanced Midfielder

SNAPSHOT: “Warner is a hard running midfielder who can play both inside and out, breaking forward with purpose and a penetrating left-foot kick.”

Phoenix Suns
Melbourne select: Kai Lohmann

A Medium Fwd to develop next to Fritsch and provide depth and replacement for Melksham and Neal-Bullen

Lohmann is a player who can be a marking option or crumbing option inside 50, and he often plays as that high half-forward who can sniff out a goal. He has clean hands and can dish off the quick hands to teammates when in close, or receive on the outside and go for a run. Given time and space, Lohmann has the potential to do a lot of damage, and his aerial and ground work can be equally impactful. If he continues to build on his areas of improvement and can convert his chances in front of goal, he is a player to watch in the future.

Isn't Jesse Motlop part of Freo's academy?

I noticed he went to North at 22
He is, however there are tiers/levels to the NGA system in WA. Because Motlop is metro based Freo can only match a bid after pick 40.

This stops the WA teams from grabbing every talented indigenous boy and claiming 'NGA' to circumvent the draft.

With pick 41 the Brisbane Lions select...

Sam Banks

Height
187cm

Weight
73kg

Current Team
Tasmania Devils

Birthday
April 2, 2003

POSITION: Midfielder/Defender

SNAPSHOT: “A smooth-moving half-back who can roll through the midfield, Banks is a great decision maker with pinpoint kicking.”

STRENGTHS:
Kicking
Decision making
Athleticism
Upside
Rebounding

IMPROVEMENTS:
Inside game
Defensive pressure

With the retirement of Grant Birchall, and Daniel Rich not getting any younger, it's worth looking at what Banks can offer. If he can get up and running quickly he could be playing sooner, rather than later.

With three picks we've collected options to play all three areas of the field and help provide depth to the squad.

goodie23 you are on the clock!
