    Eagles to load up on this year's draft is seems, hopefully they don't drop off too far in 2018.

    If the Eagles play finals next year that is a great trade by them.

    Odd, I thought it was next year that had the better WA youth.

    Probably heading to Freo for Weller if that deal gets done.

    Which bit? I don't think we'd want the Eagles pick.

    I reckon Gold Coast win this one. Helps them get Weller without giving up anything too valuable, because this year's draft doesn't took great in the 20s.Eagles better hope they make finals again.

    WCE smashed GC in this deal

    Why not? Combine it with a couple of other good picks and it's the best deal Freo can realistically get. I'd be shocked if the Suns gave up pick 2 without receiving pick 5 in return.

    Don't like it.

    Could easily be a top 10 pick next year.

    Better nail the draft this year.

    Eagles bottom 4 next year imo. Good trade for GC, and potentially, Freo, if they do indeed flip that first rounder for Weller.

    We'd want another first rounder. This and Matera won't cut it.

    If Eagles fall apart makes sense for GCS.
    If Eagles mid range then a win for them as GCS 2nd rd next year will be low.

    If WCE fall to bottom 4 it doesn't help GCS at all considering it's going to Freo.

    Professional organisations bet on themselves.

    Well done Eagles.

    Quality over quantity.

    Not too sure why West Coast would do this when it is likely they will slide down the ladder next year.

    No doubt, hence why I said it'd be combined with some other picks. How about 2, 24, West Coast's pick and Matera for Weller and 5?

    Will be a deal with a clear winner & loser in 12-24 months. Interesting stuff.

    And how fair trading should be!

    Some others should take the cue.

    Its a weird one.

    On points that is possible and clearly WC have some solid reasoning. Finishing bottom 8 will still tilt it in GC favor.

    My guess is those picks will be either on traded or have a purpose. It also might suggest WC suspect they may lose a free agent in 2018.

    Interesting one. If West Coast do well 2018 they romp it in, if not then it gets more interesting. Obviously they think they'll do better next season than many suspect (or as the poster above suggested, that Gaff could leave next year)
