    That passage of play late in the 3rd where Florent and Hayward were involved is something we will see a hell of lot of IMO.
    Both look genuine contenders for better than average.
    Aliir , that candy that he sold was just a small sign of what he is capable of. Players that can make time for themselves are rare.

    Florent, Hayward, Aliir- 200+ games
    Naismith looks another go getter but has injury issues that will hold him back. - 150 games

    Foote, Rose, Marsh, Dawson and Fox will be moved on at some point. Too vanilla. - < 50 games

    Newman is the interesting one. Looks like the type that will flourish the more senior footy he plays. - 150+ games

    James Rose - Spud soon to be delisted.
    Jordan Foote - Spud soon to be delisted.
    Will Hayward - STAR and stay at Sydney.
    Oliver Florent - Average player, will be traded, meh.
    Nic Newman - Average player will be the next Marsh/Laidler honest type.
    Harrison Marsh - Average, will be traded for opportunity elsewhere.
    Jordan Dawson - Spud soon to be delisted.
    Sam Naismith - Honest average player, stays with Swans. Staffordesque.
    Aliir Aliir - STAR and stays at sydney. Makes AA team.
    Robbie Fox - Spud soon to be delisted.

    stiff on these imo
    Rose - think he can play, just been sporadic/inaccurate
    Florent - think he's shown chunks justifying why we picked him + why he can be a very good player, consistency will come with time (i hope)

    Some are so harsh on Florent, don't get it. Such a smooth mover. Just needs to build his tank, being played early out of necessity really.

    Rose won't get another game.

    Aliir, Florent, Newman and Naismith seem the most likely.

    The others will fall by the wayside.

    Too early to call. Damien Cupido was suppose to be a star. Played 53 AFL games.

    James Rose - doubt we'll see him again. Doesn't look up to it. 7-15 games.
    Jordan Foote - not an AFL standard mid. Only chance of making it is as a Nick Smith-esque small defender. 20-30 games.
    Will Hayward - will be quality. Not quite AA level but a key player for a number of years. 225-275 games.
    Oliver Florent - as long as he builds up a tank he'll be quality. Again will be a key player without being truly elite. 225-275 games.
    Nic Newman - should be a good player. Looks to have most of the skills. Age will keep his games played tally down. 150-175 games.
    Harrison Marsh - decent foot solider but not much more. Will carve out a solid career as a fringe player but won't dominate. 80-120 games.
    Jordan Dawson - tough to gague. Think his fitness will let him down and turn him into wasted potential. 20-30 games.
    Sam Naismith - will be a solid component to our Best 22 for a number of years, but injuries will keep his games played tally down. 120-150 games.
    Aliir Aliir - will be top-class, possibly pushing AA honors. 200-250 games.
    Robbie Fox - will struggle to crack Best 22 for most of his career. Might crack it temporarily but will get overtaken by better, younger players. 50-70 games.

    There was a play in the last quarter where Florent trapped the ball on the boundary and near evaded two opponents that left no doubt in my mind that he'll be a special player.

    Rose has far more football talent than Foote .100 plus games.

    I predict that Fox will be an automatic selection in the midfield by the half way mark of the season. 100 plus games.

    Dawson is a talent. 100 plus games.

    Marsh is a journeyman, he'll be lucky to crack 100. If Johnson ever gets back, there's no way he stays.
    Florent I don't know yet, he's capable of some really good moments, a bit of a highlight player.
    Hayward has looked OK in his games so far
    Aliir and Naismith should each crack at least 150.

    Newman & Fox would be lucky to make 100 AFL games, already over the age of 23.

    Didn't realise Newman and Fox were mature. I stick by my assessment of everyone else.

    Wow! You're all pretty serious... I thought the object was to have a stab at it, then look back in 10 years and laugh at ourselves :D Have a go...
