    Golden State Warriors type approach. With Lynch, Dusty, Kelly could pretty much fill in the gaps with minimum wage guys and be competitive. The salary cap will rise too - could be a masterstroke. Wouldn't surprise me with the form the Tigers are in on and off the field

    We rated Sam Walsh very highly.

    Jye Caldwell looks a great talent, but he has had soft tissue issues.

    Walsh projects to be 250 gamer (if not much more) and a future club captain.

    Question for the non Carlton & Richmond people here that followed the draft

    Would the trade with the crows have been less critical if after doing the trade Carlton had selected Riley Collier-Dawkins who slipped to #20 but most draft watchers had him pinned for picks #10-#15

    Are we trying to start a debate now, who's better RCD or Stocker. FYI Carlton didn't want RCD they wanted Stocker.

    Not at all if that was the intention a new thread with RCD v Stocker would be more appropriate and im sure it wont be long before it is created.

    My intention was to see if it was only the trade of trading out potentially #4/#5 for #13/#15 or the player they rated at #6 not being rated as highly by other clubs recruiters or people who follow the draft.

    But with a player like RCD which was rated by some as a top 10 may have been less controversial

    No. Draft watchers fantasy lists mean nothing. No reason to doubt Stocker over RCD. Richmond might have taken him too if available for all people know. Every club got their man so take whatever is said after the fact with a grain of salt too. Also Stocker is AFL ready much, much sooner than RCD I think it’s fair to say. This fits with the decision to pay overs to get an extra year into a young fella too.

    If it wasn’t clear, I’m not critical of them taking Stocker in the first place.

    You are quite correct.

    In fact Oliver was quite pudgy and carried a lot of "puppy fat" in his TAC year, his overall improvement onfield at senior level had a lot to do with his improvement in body shape & fitness level.

    From various reports it appears we rated Stocker in our top 8 players but there we only 6 players we were prepared to trade down for. We were obviously after midfield types and Lukosius and Rankine would have been included. Top 8 is still pretty high.

    You've got a good eye for talent because IMHO the kid going to be a ripper, just a gut feel but presents well no worries at all with this lad. Just needs some time to settle and conditioning upgrade programe to get a look in.
    There's a very good reason Silvagni went out on limb to get his man.

    Teens pick... getting abit ahead of yourself could just as likely be a top 10.

    Betting odds are largely based on where the punters (read biased fans in many many cases) put their money as opposed to how the bookies think clubs will perform. It's more about exploiting the market than crystal balling team performances...

    Are you hoping for Adelaide to play finals.
    Would’nt get my hopes up , IMHO they’ll get close but a few other teams are ahead.
    Crows will be best of the teams that just miss out.

    I didn't have either in my top 15, yet had Stocker slightly ahead of RCD, which means little in the scheme of things.

    Most people are getting too caught up in possible pick differential, which again is meaningless, as we know you can find quality players anywhere in the 1st round

    No one says he is. But he’s reported he was at six on your board on draft night. Not sure why it’s such a sticking point for some.

    Carlton supporters should be happy they got a player they rated at 6 with pick 19.
