If the draft was today Jamara would go pick 1 and should still be in a years time

Dogs got real lucky, they will be looking to trade their first round pick to match the bid with later picks I assume as they won’t be able to get inside the bid

If GC don’t bid on him they have rocks in their heads

Dogs won’t let him slip out of their hands
I would love to see a club bid pick 1 on him. And force the dogs to match. I hate them pricks. And I feel like there is a genuine rivalry there. They are a bunch of smug campaigners full of arrogance. And unlike Essendon. We will be competing with them for a flag in a couple years time.

Dogs will end up using a lot of picks to match Jamarra. pick 1-3 would end up probably equating to their first 3 picks next year

They will have Jamarra Bruce Naughton and Schache up forward so will be interesting to see who misses out you would assume schache

serious marking power up front for them for awhile to come

I saw some footage on the Adelaide board’s draft thread of that Baldwin kid. He’s definitely not eligible to the crows, but was part of their academy like O’neil was in ours.

Missed the 2019 season with an ACL so will hopefully be ready to go round 1 in 2020. The kid has amazing hands, launches at the footy and looks like he moves really well (pre knee injury). 194 cms earlier this year.

This draft looks like it might have some decent KPP options.

Hollands, whose father Ben played eight games for Richmond in 1999, is a powerful forward and midfielder who boasts strength, a booming kick and smarts around goal.

He showed on Grand Final day in the NAB All Stars 'Futures' clash that he can also take those traits into the midfield, when he had 24 disposals, five clearances and kicked two goals.

Crikey, Ben Hollands has a kid in the draft?

The draft kids are having draft kids.

Around September very pessimistic outlook for his knee will circulate in the press.

In October phantom drafts will drift him out to 30+.

On draft day Hawthorn or Collingwood will mysteriously take him in the 1st round.
Seems to be a favoured tactic of our recruiters. Picking highly rated players who slide down the order due to injuries. Comben, Mahoney, and Flynn all fit that description.

Maybe we'll keep our two first rounders and pick top 5 injured sliders around 8-16?
