Laird would be exciting, but we have much squeakier wheels than our backline. If we are going to throw the house at someone, you would think Jeremy Cameron is a better option.
Cameron, Darcy Fogarty and Riley O'Brien would be the three I'd be throwing the house at. All young, all fill exact needs that we have.

We will not know ..unless we tried something different ..Bews is certainly no worse than Wojo Henry not a great kick yes.. Kolo can kick it ok ..he makes poor choices at time ..its the system that kills him imo.

No I can’t have that at all, Bews is both a bad decision maker and technically a bad kick. We’ll have to agree to disagree here.

disposal efficiency means little, just watch the games

Stewart is the only one who can kick when it comes to defenders

getting Laird would be another stupid decision

the best we can hope for is we trade players out and not trade players in

Jake Riccardi - apparently we were interested mid-season, wonder if there's still any interest come the end of season?

Riccardi's rapid improvement in his first full VFL season, in addition to his natural physical attributes, saw him rocket into contention to be picked up by a club in this year's return of the mid-season draft.
North Melbourne and Geelong were believed to be among the sides with the most interest in the high-leaping forward, while Sydney led a cluster of other clubs closely monitoring his development.

He would be similar to say Kreuger in terms of development and similar in size, probably a few more Kgs and perhaps slightly more ready than Kreuger was... I'd fully endorse this selection at the right price, and you'd probably say he'd be in the Pick 30-50 range on draft day if you use the Kreuger pick as a guide. But I think clubs are looking more closely at mature (State League) talent given the success of recent years, so who knows, he may go earlier as the Key Position stocks are a bit thin in this draft. I am not sure NM needs another tall forward, unless they offload Mason Wood, or they see Jake as a defender potential. Swans on the other hand are looking for Forwards.

So I stand by these guys for our picks and go for youth:

Sam Flanders - Midfiedler/Forward (Pick 8-12) -> From TK trade
Dylan Stephens - Outside Midfielder (Pick 12-16) -> From TK trade or our first pick
Cameron Taheny - Medium Forward (Pick 18-30) -> From TK trade or our first pick
Jake Riccardi - Key Position (Pick 36) - Our 2nd round pick
Jeremy Sharp or Cooper Stephens - Running defender/Winger vs General Midfielder - Whatever picks left... I think Stephens will be gone in Top 40 though, Sharp won't though, and Sharp would be ideal for Clark.

** Then I'd try get Meek from Fremantle with a Late Pick as a development ruck as he's already been in the system and looks a crash and bash type, 4th rounder this year or next. We could probably procure that from any trade on Buzza, or Abbott, or Smith...

Forget Jack Steven, and any other old players, unless its FA!
