Time for everyone to put their money where their endless melting is. This thread exists purely so we can all point fingers and laugh at each other when Jackson turns out to be either a good pick or a bust, either for us or elsewhere.

put your predictions below

I’m gonna say good pick

I'm gunna say he will be another Hogan and we are going to get annoying comments from his beloved Freo before he finally returns there in 3 years. Belly shafts us for a future 2nd and 3rd the year they win the premiership. We lose.

Except we are using pick 3 instead of pick 50. So instead of being a cult hero he will be the next Jack Watts.






Tom Boyd and Patty McCartin will look like recruiting masterminds compared to this. At least Boyd won a premiership and McCartin looked somewhat like a forward as a junior.






At least we will still get to watch Hayden Young tear it up on the MCG on grand final day.







Okay, Im done

Multiple votes allowed, so I voted for every option. Looks like I'm right, again.

He could turn out to be the next Buddy Franklin, or he's more likely to be a Jared Brennan type showing flashes of potential well into his late 20s. He could also be rubbish, or run away home at the earliest convenience. Would've thought we'd go with a safer option than a tall project player.

Shocked that you've made it so you can't be wrong ... so out of character

Nah but seriously, I don't see how we develop him into the player he might be able to become.

The veil of negativity will come crashing down around him after he fails to make an immediate impact at Casey, where he has the ball dumped on his head consistently by the Wagner brothers. Expectations grow too much for the pick 3 bolter, he has a Tom Boyd-esque falling out of love for the game and retires early to play basketball back in WA. His love for the game rekindles in a Mitch Clark type scenario, where WCE pick him up for free after Nic Nat retires.

WCE then go on to win the flag, where he claims AA honours. Deven Robertson wins the Norm Smith that year, after we had to trade him back to his home state due to home sickness. We received the ghost of Steven Armstrong in return for the promising young midfielder. At this point it becomes clear that the 2019 Draft for the Demons was a calamity.

I am warming to the idea of Jackson, tall players AFL ability is even harder to predict at 18 than midfielders. Can we have an option that is "Don't care so long as we don't draft Ash"? Good with any two of the other options talked about in that range
