Like Taylor from WA, really like him
Yep, same here. He strikes me as a potential topliner. Didn't quite happen for him yesterday, but it nearly did quite often. The kind of player where your eyes widen whenever he enters the frame(as a viewer, and i sense as a defender lol).

As a recruiter, you would hope he falls to something beyond your 1st pick because he could make you or break you, but someone will probably take the leap.

I'll certainly follow his backend of the year. He's one who could leap right up the order if it comes together even a bit this year.

Agreed, has real point of difference, speed and vision

As a safe, no fuss, old fashion player, I like Rivers, reads the play like a veteran

Casboult and 1st rounder for Papley and I am very happy.
Wishful thinking. Let me dream though.

Ditto. Quite a few of the W.A. boys were impressive. Suma had them set-up and ready to play.

What do you think of Robertson?
Robertson is merely an accumulator, although a very good one, but with little hurt factor. What impresses me about Robertson is what he does without the ball.

Mid to latish 1st range in this draft

Edited: Luke Jackson is one that I rated highly from last year, continues to improve for a big guy

I'd like to see a bit more of him, but i sense something about him. Yes he is an accumulator and yes he has rather little hurt factor but i think he has the knack of getting the important possession or the important hand in or the important tackle or the important holdup. And yes he works without the ball too.

I dunno, i guess i'm kinda saying he is a leader style player week to week. Kinda thinkin Sloane style or Ward. Scrappyish but bloody good. Bosses the game. And with smarts and intent, not brawn yet.

Why all the love for Papley and paying a 1st round pick for him as well?

Feels like massive overs to give up Levi and a first round pick for him.

Tom Mitchell went for pick 10, I know which player I would have preferred.

Good analysis and comparisons, also agree regarding leadership qualities

Pick #14 actually, but you can't look at it that way.

Papley is contracted and Sydney would have every right to demand our first, if it does indeed sit in the 12 - 16 range.
Hard to say for sure but if it was a 10, we may even get a little back.

If we want Papley we'll just have to pay and shut up.

Chasing needs more than value. I think Langdon will turn out to be the best value player who is likely to be traded.

Help wanted. Last year WA had an underager off half back. Very poised and skilled. Had a private school/surfer look.
Told myself to keep an eye out for him this year. Name escaped me and I have been too busy to watch any of the champs.

Any idea who it may be and if so how did he go?

Not sure I would be targeting players like Papley, given the cost, when there are so many FA/OOC who could do play similar roles
What quality small forwards are FA/OOC? FA aren't necessarily going to choose us and OOC still have to be traded for.

Cameron went for about pick 12 and is a better trade comparison than Mitchell who at the time I thought went for unders.

I would have had Tom for this too.

Watch him play, there is your answer,

That would be Jeremy Sharp. Was AA last year i think.

He has polarised opinion this year a bit i think, but haven't been following the opinions that closely as yet. Plenty of class not a lot of grunt would be fair i think from my viewing.

Thanks TW. That sounds right. Looked very good last year in a vintage draft class.
Interesting player.

Who though and how does more mean better?

If Papley did come at that say #14, aren't we better off than fishing around for bargains that may not work...or worse...players we don't need.
So we go to the draft. Then what? Do we just take the best player regardless of the 'type' or do we look for a specific 'type' that may have well been sitting there much later in the draft?

I think it would make for a terrible idea to go to the draft and pick-up let's say another midfielder and then only to have to try and manufacture another role for him, because we're already running quite deep in this department and we didn't get that ready-to-go 24-26 year old premium mid.

Again, I feel it was clear that when we took Stocker, that Adelaides pick was already earmarked for a player. Let's see how that pans out.
