Which players look likely to be taken in the main draft?

Andrew and Motlop probably get taken before respective bid matching rights kick in.

So far I have seen Owens and Windhager to the Saints & Raak to the Bulldogs
From memory Freo had some prospects that were mentioned as likely - although it could be Motlop I am remembering.

Is there anyone else?

Further, who is likely to be taken as a Cat B Rookie?

I think Carlton takes Akuei as a Cat B.
Is Jack Peris a chance at the Saints here too?

Ethan Regan hasn't done much wrong for West Coast.

How the f$&k is the nephew of Jeff Farmer an NGA? Isn't the purpose of academies to uncover and nurture talent that wouldn't otherwise play AFL??
The rules just read funny when they discussed indigenous lads but included the following;

"excluding the nephew of Jeff Farmer"

so they deleted it.

Benning is a likely pickup for Freo. Freo can match after 20, although I doubt he’d go anywhere 50-60. Most likely cat-b.
Freo will be lucky to get Motlop after 40.

Hope we car-b Bartlett or Haddow.

None of Farmers sons have panned out, so a nephew will be a chance. Doubt he’ll be in the talks for cat-b though.

I dislike the different set of rules. Motlop/Nasiah Wanganeen is the example. Both Metro kids NW not eligible in SA but Motlop yes but after pick 40. Vic kids doesn't matter if rural or metro kids.

The whole system's an inconsistent mess - a few clubs got to milk it, the rest have been stuffed about

I’ve put my thoughts out on those boys already but Eyre who I haven’t seen but the best person to ask for a different opinion would be foj1
