15 seems a bit high to me. I know we often overrated draft picks, but while he's got good pace and can find the footy, he hasn't seemed overly damaging from the games I've seen.

I would take Langdon over all if them except Jones.
15 is probably unders

I’m sure I can find 6 guns taken after pick 50 in the draft too.

Not sure that alone is a great indication of his trade value.

Let's talk about picks because neither SPS nor Fisher are likely to be going anywhere.

Both are part of our core group and seen as significant players for us going forward, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
Well in the unliklihood he chose to go back home and even unliklier event to go to Carlton draftpicks wouldn’t cut it .

Our club wouldn’t be interested in accumulating draft picks like SOS does, especially for an up and coming established talent such as Langdon- his output would need to be replaced somewhat like for like immediately otherwise your team just ends up in a perpetual state of rebuilding

That said , in this instance, I could see Carlton having the same philosophy -no point trading out a young known quantity for another of similar ability

Can't see Ed Langdon being a good fit at Collingwood besides having his brother play alongside him. He's much like Phillips in being able to run all game but not exactly having a great deal of pace. He's also great in the air like Phillips. We still have Sidebottom and Mayne who are wingmen in the best 22 with Aish, Daicos and such pushing. He's a really good player but he's not going to offer a whole lot that we don't already have.

Depend both Mayne and Sidebottom are near 30 . No guarantee a player in second Rd pick going to be better than Aish/Daico .
