He may be talking about the Academy kids next year.

There’s going to be more matched bids in the first round than the likely 2 this year, 1 of which Essendons pick avoids anyway.
Academy players and strength of draft definitly needs to be taken into consideration

Although i always feel academy guys are hyped for everyone 12 months out. A real fascination amongst fans

I am told we are very keen and have spoken with him several times including last few days. More rank on talent than need. I still think it will be Hollands but it's a tight choice.

Comment to me was Hollands will be a very very good consistent 200 game player and is a great kid. Allan is raw but has lots of upside and could be anything.
I’d rather pull the trigger on a better prospect if we have the opportunity to bring in multiple players.

Hollands looks like a solid prospect, but it’s looking like a few decent players are going to slip through.

Not a major Allan fan, but I understand the thinking if we do take him.

If Sydney are keen on Allen and trade to 10, it could see WC pick him up and Ginbey fall outside the top 10. WC have spent a lot of time on both, would be a tough call at 9 for them.

If we trade up to 10 and Ginbey is there I’d expect us to pounce.

Terrible comparison. Screams of someone who hasn't watched him play.
Look I've seen the following full games with Ashcroft participating and I've watched him very closely:
1. Vic Metro v Vic Country;
2. Vic Metro v WA;
3. Vic Metro v SA;
4. Vic Metro v Allies;
5. NAB League GF;
6. NAB League PF;
7. NAB League EF;
8. NAB League R10 v Jets (his 51 disposal game);
9. NAB League R1 v Chargers;
10. AFL Academy v Collingwood VFL.

I'm sorry if you don't like my position, but that doesn't mean I haven't watched enough of him this year to form an opinion.

These are the players taken directly before and after those three:
Ben McEvoy (Danger) Patrick Veszpremi
Ben Lennon (Cripps) Cam McCarthy
Ben Griffiths (Fyfe) Ryan Bastinac

You'd need to pick the eyes out of the draft like Legolas and Hawkeye had a lovechild.
Ben McEvoy won more cups than Danger
