What's our draft hand for 2022 currently? Have we traded away or received any future picks?

Adam D'Aloia from Woodville - West Torrens. Captain of the SA U17 team, best on ground in the State Game v WA. Best on ground in the SANFL U18 Grand Final. 184 cm and 84Kg. Great kick. Very accurate over short distances and a really long kick on the run. Pronounced as "da lawyer". BT will have some fun with that.

i put out a top 50 for 2022 back in july, ive added about half a dozen since then, its early days but this is where i rank them based on the u17 championships and other games i have seen them play like Colts, NAB League or SANFL u18 and the various state games that were not u17 champs.....

now that the drafts are all done and dusted, i will throw out some early names to look out for, obviously things change in their draft years, some jump up the order based on performance/potential/athletic abilities and some fall from injuries/poor form/red flags ect so this is just an early ranking at this stage

We need KPD depth and Jedd Busslinger sounds like he has come straight out of the Wild West!

(I've been playing a lot of Red Dead 2 so that could also be having an influence)

Which top 2 pick do the Dogs get next year?
Not since the Cats father son days of Porkins and Godly Junior has a team been so kissed on the dick as the throw dogs. If they don't win a flag in the next 5 years they should be banished from the comp

Cat b rookie it is then
You laugh. But I heard on a podcast that he is already scoping it. Needs to be unaligned for three years and then bang! Cat b to a WA club. Do the college b-ball thing and a nice plan B after your degree if you don't make the b-ball big time
