CATS SPRING A SURPRISE
Geelong have overlooked the highly fancied Brodie Kemp and Deven Robertson, selecting Geelong Falcon Cooper Stephens with pick No.16.

A nasty leg break kept him sidelined for most of the 2019 season, but a beast of a performance at the Draft Combine impressed the Cats.

"It's a brave pick," says Riley Beveridge.

Pick 17: Brodie Kemp (Carlton)

The Blues finally take a bid and have landed Bendigo Pioneer Brodie Kemp.
Kemp is a 192cm defender/midfielder who suffered a knee injury this season.

What Bucky says: Kemp ruptured his ACL late this year, which could see him be one of the sliders on draft night. If that does happen, he’d prove to be a bargain for the club that selects him.
What Sheehan says: He reads the play exceptionally well in either role with his overhead marking elite.

GEORGIADES BOLTS UP THE ORDER
The tall forward didn't play at all this year after three surgeries but has been picked by Port Adelaide at pick 18.

Pick 18: Mitchell Georgiades (Port Adelaide)

Well, that's one from left field!
Mitch Georgiades didn't play this year due to a quad injury which required several surgeries but is a forward who was expected to still be a second -round contender.
His dad John Georgiades played 15 games for Footscray and booted 8.4 on debut against Carlton.

DE KONING TO THE CATTERY
Sam De Koning is headed down the highway, Geelong selecting him with pick No.19.


Pick 19: Sam De Koning (Geelong)

The brother of Carlton ruckman Tom De Koning, Sam is a key defender who stands 201cm.
De Koning is a versatile tall hailing from Dandenong Stingrays.

What Bucky says: De Koning is like his brother, Carlton’s Tom De Koning, and will take time to fully develop and make his mark. Players like him, however, are very hard to find and although it will take time, if you can develop them, they become very valuable players
What Sheehan says: Tall defender who is athletic, mobile and can move forward to impact the game. His intercept marking a feature of his game down back where he also shows plenty of dash.

Pick 20: Sam Philp (Carlton)

The Blues have engineered a trade to get back to pick 20 and have taken speedster Sam Philp from Northern Knights.
Philp is a bolter of the highest order considering he didn't even make the Vic Metro squad at the start of the campaign.
He was the quickest player over 20m at the draft combine at 2.87secs.

If this was us, would anybody be happy with this trade? I say no, I think is a square up for letting Martin get to them in the PSD.
I think very good for Carlton. A Points gain of 450 or so. Pick 11 is probably about 40% chance of a good player, 17 30 %, 22 25%. So 0.4 good players for 0.55 good players, that is a win for Carlton.

How many more players will we take. Is it 3 more in the draft, picks about 70-72 or so.
Our next pick's currently are 73 and above

The GIANTS now hold picks 73, 85, 87, 89 and 90


Talking points for today will be ;

Do they move higher up or be content where they are

Pick up a un-listed player tonight late or wait till Friday's Rookie Draft

Except.... you just made up those numbers didn’t you
It is approximate, an indication of what the points system stands for. In gold coasts case, they didn't really need pick 22 anyway.
It also explains why nobody sensible would ever trade say pick 8,9,10 for pick 3. 8,9,10 probably represent on average 1.35 good players with pick 3 about .75 good players.

We only have to take 1 more player; could take 4 more. They could include Tommy Sheridan, Zach Sproule & Jake Stein (who are all now delisted & up for anyone to grab). We can match a bid for academy kids without incurring any further deficit from pick 55, but given the relatively small deficit for Green, could elect to match an earlier bid and take a larger deficit. I don't think any of our remaining academy kids are certs in the main draft - Liam Delahunty the highest rated but the chatter indicated we wouldn't take him. We might just watch and see what unfolds, and potentially see if anyone they like is still there where a future pick could be used to buy in.

Two trades drop

Port Adelaide has traded the first pick tonight to the Brisbane Lions.
Port had pick 22 and the Lions pick 23 – they have now swapped, with some later picks also changing hands.
Meanwhile, Port Adelaide and Sydney have also reportedly completed a trade in the fourth round. The Swans have handed over picks 65 and 68 and received pick 61 in return.
Let the fun and games begin!

Away we go for the 2nd night !!


Pick 22: Deven Robertson (Brisbane)

The nephew of former West Coast skipper Darren Glass, the West Australian can play through the midfield and in defence and captained his state at the under-18 national championships.
Bucky says: Robertson has really improved his athletic ability and makes things happen when he gets the ball because he’s a smart player who makes really good decisions. If there’s a knock on him, it’s his pace but, over the years, we’ve seen players make up for that by using their footy smarts.
Sheehan says: He is a creative player, with clean hands and vision. He plays with a team first attitude and consistently won the ball throughout the Under-18 Championships.
