    Okay: two games till season's end and barring a miracle by GC, our ladder position is set - so assuming we lose our next two (...today's perfomance makes it likely... ugh!) and assuming we don't trade up or down pre-draft, then pick five is ours.

    So: the immortal question - in everyone's opinion, what position do we need to fill most, and whom do we pick to fill it?

    All thoughts welcome.

    Are there any teams with two picks in the top 20 through other trades or compo picks? I wouldn't mind trading pick 5 for two picks in the top 20 and using one of these to trade for McGovern while keeping the other one to use for ourselves.

    The best midfielder we can get. Preferably someone who is comfortable inside and outside similar to treloar or along those lines.

    Not sure we need a seperate thread for this, that said external noise puts Brander on top of the KPF prospects and in the top 7ish picks so he'd be odds on favourite as long as we stay below Collingwood. If we get ahead of Collingwood or someone unexpected goes early on Brander then I'd then say the priority would be fwd>mid. I'm pretty happy with where 5ish of our best under the age of S Hill 22 lines are

    HB Hughes Hamling Ryan
    C B Hill Neale S Hill
    R Darcy Fyfe Blakely
    HF Bennell Cox McCarthy
    FF Walters ???? ????
    I/C Tucker Langdon Crozier ????

    Goal kickers are the clear priority for me

    Go best available. Always go best available early in the draft.

    A fair point - I started the thread because personally I'm in the big KPF camp and I haven't seen any possible trading suggsstions that are going to land us a top five pick forward (Pav iirc went at no. 4) so personally I'd like us to use the pic, not trade it.

    I was happy for us to trade our top pick last year given the way things went, but I'm not sure that kind lightning can strike twice.

    Some folks say small forward, some say swingman, some say inside mid... for my money however we need a pack-crashing monster with permanent stigmata that constantly weep super-glue. ...I was wondering what the consensus was.

    Why?

    Look at the wafl, no young midfielders developing there.

    This. Best available (excluding those who are likely to **** off after their first contract) is the best option, particularly given where we are. We need more midfield depth and as we all know we need someone resembling a forward as well. Not against picking a back man either, though doesn't appear at this stage if any will be up at our pick

    In order of preference: Hogan, Brander then if neither pan out, best available.

    Blakely and Langdon both out with season ending injuries. Both Mids. Weller is a midfielder playing in the defence. Harley Bennell is also a player that will be spending time midfield.

    Darcy wasn't best available - he was drafted to fill a need and we surprised a few with that pic... turned out to be a steal. Best available might get us another skinny flanker. Cant see Bennell spending lots of time in the midfield frankly.

    I think it has to be Brander, but the risk is he will go home after 2 seasons. He's from GWS academy and they'd love payback.

    Reasonable noise for Hogan.

    Mitch McGovern with a downgrade.

    Even take 2 of Richmonds first in exchange.

    Fair few options.

    GWS is nowhere near his home, it was a farce that he was in their zone in the first place

    Meant more he has done all his training with them since he was 12.

    I suppose that's fair, unlikely that GWS are going to need a tall forward in the next 6 years, so I don't think they'd want to pay big for him
