Richmonds current picks:-

An early look at who is likely to be in the mix


Hopefully we are active in the trade market and offload a few underperforming players too.

Said it in another thread, pending our own picks depending on where we finish, we should be trying to offload a couple guys with currency to get an additional 2 picks inside the top 30.

Regardless of the results this year, it's still rebuild time on the cards, and adding in another 4-5 top 30 picks on top of those from last year would mean close to 10 top 30 picks in 2 years. That's a great building block to add to Balta, Bolton, Baker and some of the other under 25 players on the list for the future.

Looks like another F/S pick will be nudging everybody else down the order again this year.

Who would you offload that has any sort of decent currency?

We do not have a round 3 pick next year - that went to Collingwood

Before someone says I'm destroying our list, it would only be 1-2 of these, and currency is the key.

Short
Vlastuin
Nankervis
Soldo
Graham
Broad

Every other player young enough to have currency, would be worth keeping.
Take Nankervis and Vlastuin off and I think it's pretty reasonable. I'd be weary about trading Soldo unless Colina and Samson come on quicker than expected. Dogs would probably be keen. If it meant getting Dunkley I'd take that risk.

We'd need to trade for picks imo.
Gotta build the next young core to come along together. I'd be trying to get picks even if we have to pick + player to move up the draft.

Not sure. We can still contend next year without Jack and Cotchin. We'll be still be strong forward and back. Bring in Dunkley and a free agent mid or KPF and still take a decent hand to the draft.

Let it go.

The eras over.

It's gonna get worse before it gets better.

If Geelong can contend most years we can too.

We still have vlastuin prestia nank short lynch dusty graham balta gibcus sonsie kmac ralphsmith baker bolton brown broad etc etc are a very good core group for a few more years yet.
Geelong dont contend. They do well in the H&A because no one can win against them in Geelong, then get towelled in finals.

That list you quoted there isn't all that impressive anymore. We need more elite talent and we need it from the draft.

You're in for a hard realisation if you still think this core can win a flag. We've had our era mate, it's over.

I wouldn't trade Vlastuin, but if we did I would expect a first rounder in the vicinity of 8~12.

28 year old (next April) medium intercept defenders don't get that.
He's a gun, but no one's paying that.

I agree to trade for picks, but also be careful not to trade out all of our older players. We need to get the balance right between getting quality young players and giving them experience, but also having enough quality older players to learn from.

Agree. I'd only trade off 1 or 2.
Riewoldt, Cotchin, Edwards will retire.
