He hasn't got the contested side to his game that Kelly has.
I see LOB as a less prolific Gaff.

LOB reminds me of Scully.
Think tigers showed having a shit ruckman doesn't matter when you have good mids that hunt the ball.and win the 50/50's.
What the what? Nank is a gun.
Nanny is better than most of the premiership rucks since Dean Cox, but it really isn't an important key to a premiership.
He is solid.

yeh, i wouldnt call Nank a gun. Good solid ruckman.
Nankervis had 18 disposals and took a couple of very important marks. He's not shit at all. Midfield depth is always awesome to have though.
Jack Graham was pick 53 last year and now has a premiership and kicked 3 goals in a grand final.
Wonder if there is a Graham-esque value pick this year...
Just read a summary of LOB. Has his inside game improved and does he still only kick off his left?
He isn't purely a left footer, think Zac Merrett he is capable on his opposite. His inside game isn't great but he can win a hard ball.
I dont know how Graham didnt go in the 20s, forgot it was that late. He played well today.
Review I read said his disposal efficiency was well down under pressure, which suggested to me there must have been moments when he was forced onto his right. Also suggested that he continues to work on improving his non-preferred side though. Do you see enough scope for improvement to play to the same standard as Zac Merrett?
Also, how likely is Charlie Constable to be available at Pick 11?
He is mostly a kicker which goes for most players that mostly kick, easier for those stats to look good when you mostly handball under pressure. Yeah for sure O'Brien reminded me of Zerrett in his under age year
Not sure but I'd say we are keen on Constable he is the right type of mid we need to cover for Watson
Ok forget the disposal count. Cotchin has 21 possies and i didn't see him all day. Jacobs killed Narvervis in the ruck gave him a bath. Nankervis has been handy around the ground this season but against a good tap ruck is exposed easily. If TBell had 49 hit outs in GF we would be calling him the best ruckman ever.
Hunter Clark, Andrew Brayshaw, Joel Garner and Jack Higgins: any of these suitable replacements? ...and how would you rank them? ...and thanks for your patience DPS.
Geez Eth-dog suspended must have had one too many mid-strengths
He's still not shit, and neither was Cotchin.
Ok fair enough not shit maybe too many jack and cokes at the time. Good solid contributor but no superstar. Like the hawks won all those flags without a gun ruckman. Think we saw the best of the crows both times we played them gave little today, tigers just to tough at the contest.
I agree, the Tiges wanted it more. Nank has a lot of upside in comparison with Jacobs. Sauce is at the top of his game, and although Nank got killed in the hit outs, he's still young. He was hard at the contested ball today which is clearly what Dimma wants from that group and he looks like he has plenty of improvement left in him, and now he has a finals series under his belt as well. I reckon they've found a player. If Dodo had found him we'd all be singing his praises.
Was excellent today, I remember last year people were saying he's too vanilla and a wasted pick. If cracking in hard all day and converting the chances you should is vanilla, I'm switching from over from chocolate.
In that order, Clark would be the perfect pick he would suit our team better than any other in this draft I reckon.
It's baffling - strong body, good kick, excellent character. Not like he went under the radar - he captained SA at the champs.
Every year there are a couple of highly rated juniors who seem obvious high picks, but the industry decides otherwise and they go late before they then go on to become good players as it always seemed they would.
It's really not. Low ceiling, but low bust potential, average athletically and only solid skills. But obviously works his arse off. A very unsexy meat and potatoes type player clubs don't really want to spend a high pick on unless they've got a 'trick'.
You see it every year, multiple times a year, blue collar types always slide, Hell, just last year it happened with Mutch and Clarke. Clarke in particular plays a similar sort of game style to Graham and had a better year at VFL level, who knows what would have happened if we actually empowered him and gave him a run.
Maybe everyone got scared off after SA made Toumpas captain a few year back
Anyway now that it seems likely we are keeping pick 11 who are the players we are likely to target?
