    Not necessarily, I'm all for trading up to get one, not both though.

    Rankine and Rozee would be insane in our team.

    All four of them would be in 2-3 years. One of the best development clubs in the game with kids oozing with talent. It's a match made in heaven should they manage to avoid being crippled by injuries.

    Ranko is the best in this draft. The advantage Luko has at his age group is his tank. Poor mark overhead and not a contested player. Also not a quick turn of pace .... Lynch type footballer or the Giraffe from Port Adelaide

    I just keep picturing Rankine in Crows colours turning it on and exciting the crowd with freakish Betts like moves. He would look fantastic in Crows jumper.

    I would still like to have 3 picks in this draft inside 25 but Rankine first up would be exceptional. Even if we stay with current selections I still think we are in great position. With the track record that our club has in recruiting and player development, this draft could set us up for years to come.

    If we keep 4 picks I would not be surprised if we pick a tall with one of the picks.

    Mate I’m an Eagles supporter. Have you watched him play????He’s going to be solid but in my opinion not a stand out like people are professing. In the mould of Justin Westoff

    I've seen him play plenty of times, more than you by the sounds.

    Hes a skinny kid playing against men, and holding his end of the bargain.

    So you've seen a tall physically under developed 17/18 year old playing against men, it's not all about the present in drafting talls it's the future projection that recruiters see, obviously you've missed his dominance against his peers in his age group.

    Sneaky chance we look at athletic high leaping tall forward/ruck Bailey Williams IMO.

    I’ve seen him plenty of times and he’s good but at AFL level it’s a different kettle of fish... there is no guarantee. You need to have lateral speed, a good overhead mark or pack mark as a tall to excel. Schacke, Weitering, Boyd, McArtin all had massive wraps toooo!!!!!

    And those kids will all be very good players. Tom Boyd won his side a GF, Weitering has been stunted at a rubbish club and McCartin has been ruined by concussion.

    Luko is great overhead and has great lateral movement for a guy his size. Add to that his field kicking is Walker-esq.

    I will be amazed if he doesn't become a very very good AFL player.

    And please tell me which one has a similar game style, endurance and athleticism along with elite foot skills in the players you named. I'll give you a tip, none of them. The 3 forwards are stay at home forwards with questionable athleticism and Weitering is a defender that has been absolutely butchered by Carlton.

    I know but the constant contract distractions that comes with them is ridiculous.. The rumours, the innuendo, the Vic media lighting fires... we don’t need that

    Hamish has always picked the best player regardless. The only caveat is if theres 2 guys at a similar talent level you go home grown.

    If its Rozee or Smith, you then pick Smith.
