IN: Dayne Beams, Pick 41 (round 3), Pick 44 (round 3)
OUT: Pick 18 (round 1), Pick 56 (round 3), 2019 round 1 Selection

Did we overpay?

Too early to say imo. If we finish top 4 next year and get Kelly and Quaynor in the draft I think the deal is okay.

No.

The closest comparison is Bryce Gibbs. Essentially 2 firsts for him including a top 10 pick.

Beams is significantly better than Gibbs, and when you calculate points for picks we essentially gave just our 2019 first rounder.

It's really a no brainer. Pick 18 was probably going to be wasted anyway.

Marginal overpayment.
We needed a 2nd round back + 3rd round back, instead of two 3rd rounders.

However if we get Quaynor and Kelly without going into deficit, it will be a win-win.

The Sam Murray trade stuffed us. Regardless of his drug suspension, which obviously made thing worse.

For a rookie listed player, who never played an AFL game, we should of never swapped our 2nd round pick out.

Im no academy point guru but I assume two picks in the 40s are close to pick 18

So no, we didnt overpay. Hes easily worth a future first rounder, especially one that should be 14+. It was a fair deal.

In 2009 we gave up our first second and third to get Jolly and Ball.

Neither here or there IMO.
We got a gun player into our club- one who is a premiership favourite son.
A player who wants to be here.

Secondly- we got points for our academy players.

The Sam Murray trade was a 12 point giveup in the draft order. He was showing every sign of it being a good trade.

We'll soon see.

For now, maybe a little but not a lot. We're right in the premiership hunt and now we've added Beams. No complaints here.

Im excited to see how we get Roughead up and going as well.

Bid comes for IQ before 18 - we did well.

Bid comes after - time will tell with on field performance.

Yes, we overpaid. Two first rounders for a player who has likely already peaked, and may only have a couple of seasons left, is not good value. It won’t likely be felt too much this year, but entering the draft in the 30’s next year will be a blow.

Having said that, if Kelly and/or Quaynor become very good players, or we win a flag with Beams, no-one will likely care.
