Doubtful, more fringe depth based upon the belief that they’re not far off a GF berth. Greenwood would have met the missing piece definitionAnother missing piece?
3 draft picks - yes...
So we can sign up to 5 more contracts, ROC and Davis could be up to two of those. We can also leave some spots vacant.
We are obviously going to spend pick 4 and 33 on at least one player, could be up to 3 if we split 4.
If we want one of the DFAs we clearly have space to do so, but definitely not a necessity.
My guess is 3 draft picks (taking us up to 36 senior list players), recontract ROC as a rookie (taking us up to 5 Cat A rookies), and leave a rookie spot vacant.
Which means something other than the above scenario will happen.
Has Kane Cornes been critical of Port today and there use of the rookie list?Another missing piece?

Who has us finishing bottom?18. Adelaide
The Crows are still only 39 games into a massive club-wide rebuild.
They won only three of their last 17 games after a Taylor Walker-inspired purple patch that saw him kick bags of five, six, six and three goals in a 3-1 first month for the Crows.
They must reintegrate Walker with all the challenges that come with that after his racist slur.
And despite the acquisition of Jordan Dawson, they have lost stalwarts including Jake Kelly, Daniel Talia, David Mackay and Tom Lynch.
Adelaide knows exactly where it is at – with the right coach, the right captain (Rory Sloane) the right list strategy, the patience to build methodically.
It just might take another 24 months of pain before the on-field bounce.
Early prediction: New acquisition Josh Rachele only takes weeks before fans wonder if they should name one of the Adelaide Oval forward pockets “Josh’s pocket”.

Certainly going to be an interesting comparison with North given we’ve rebuilt at the same time. Their midfield is going to be scary.Despite a good defensive unit we still have a laborious midfield rivaled only by Hawthorn in its lack of power, pace, and precision, compared with a North side who have spent the last 3 drafts packing theirs with talent, and our forward line is built around a second year key and a first year small - bottom is a reasonable estimate. I certainly have us, Hawthorn, and Collingwood just about ironed on for bottom 4, the real question is can North leapfrog Carlton and/or Gold Coast.
