We need to find a way to get both Harry Sheezel and Brayden George. All of a sudden our forward line looks and dangerously dynamic!
BG seems to be shaping up as a real challenger for the top 10 which is a bit of a shame.
Would be great if we could somehow nab him with a second rounder.

Not sure if this has been mentioned - but footy IQ and character is high up on the watchlist and apparently Sheezel has those qualities in spades.

Also FYI - apparently Sheezel & Ashcroft will be on AFL360 tonight- so will be interesting to see...

They showed two great photos, one of Harry Sheezel with Buddy as a young boy, and one with Sam Mitchell.

Robbo: 'Imagine if you end up at the Hawks, eh!'
Harry: (Massive grin on his face) 'Yeah, that would be awesome.'

Gerard mentioned that the photo with Sam would be a feature on draft night if we did draft him.

Will Ashcroft descriped Harry as a player similar to Rachele, just with a bigger frame. He has spent a lot of his playing time so far in the forward line, but is aiming to play more in the midfield this year.

Boys, l'm all in on the Sheezel train!

Hearing Ashcroft doesn't wanna leave Melbourne.

Odd then that he would describe himself as a “Queenslander at heart” on 360 tonight, let alone spend multiple pre seasons here and weeks at a time playing for us in the VFL.

Only highlights but from what I saw you would take either and be very happy

Ashcroft looks a ridiculous talent though , where would he likely go if he wasnt F/S ?

Number 1. Being hyped like Daicos was last season. Although he ultimately fell to 4 in the end.

Would increase the likelihood of us getting Sheezal I'd say!
Surely would be a surprise if he wasn't available at our first pick...WC would have to be taking a local talent (Buslinger or Hewitt) or the best pure mid, North would have to take the best tall given their list, Crows just took Rachele so would be unlikely to take another forward, Bombers need talls and will get Davey. Giants are the smokey, think they'd take a mid-fwd hybrid given their list profile, but think they'll finish above us in any case. Sheezal is def an intriguing pick.. I'm on board.
