The Age is reporting you're chasing Ryder.I'd offer, even with Draper staying.
Draper is unlikely to get on an AFL park in 2020. Will need recovery time (proper recovery time Essendon), and then will need a good chunk of VFL to regain touch.
Could be a late season debut at best.
In the meantime another season relying on TBC's body is a big risk
2020 - Goldy - TBC - Draper recovers
2021 - Goldy - Draper - TBC
2022 - Draper - see where Goldy & TBC are at...may need to draft in some more depth by then
AgreeThe Age is reporting you're chasing Ryder.
Goldy would be a much better option - a better ruckman and more durable.
Player ratings have Goldy as number 1 player in the AFL from rounds 15-22. He is back to his best.
Guaranteed base money is a key component in calculation then you get addition value if 25.. at 31 that will not happen. .. Add up all the players 25 and older in order .. Dangerfield , Franklin etc in order ..and where does GSt contract fit?. ..If he does go, the contract value will be a good test of the FA system given his age and quality.
He will be 31, but you'd think his contract's likely to be $700k+.
It probably hasn't happened before from memory?
Wells may be the closest example as a second rounder compo, but I think Todds contract is likely to eclipse it by a fair bit (Wells was $500k).
