It's not the Kennedy and Honey elevations which effect our numbers (they've already been nominated and contracted), it's more the commitment to re-rookie LOB and Cottrell.Jones's spot doesn't need to be freed up now for us to take 2 picks in the draft, as Kennedy was placed on the rookie list last year and Honey has only been a rookie for 2 years, so they don't need to be upgraded
Any players in their third season as a Category A or B rookie will be eligible to spend another season as a rookie in 2022www.afl.com.au
My understanding, is that rookie nominations aren't binding, but I could be wrong
With the 2 elevations, and Jones still on the list, we're at 35-4-1, meaning we have 3 list spots available.
We could choose to add 3 senior players, before Jones goes on the Inactive list.
It seems that we will only take 1 senior player, rookie LOB and Cottrell, and then add a player in the SSP, however, given our list numbers we could take 2 in the draft (currently #25 and #63), take LOB in the rookie draft, then add Cottrell back to the rookie list in the SSP in another 2ish weeks.
