Much like the Mock Top 20 thread but power rankings instead.

Should be completely subjective, it's your own personal wishlist.

Should also be Bulldogs-focussed, about our needs. Eg. I think Naughton is a top 16 player but I don't think we need him so he's not on my list.

Also capped it at 16 because there's no point including players after our picks. To that end it might be worth leaving out Naish or anyone else who you think will have bids matched on them.

Anyway here's mine:
  1. Luke Davies-Uniacke
  2. Paddy Dow
  3. Adam Cerra
  4. Nick Coffield
  5. Jaidyn Stephenson
  6. Cameron Rayner
  7. Andrew Brayshaw
  8. Aiden Bonar
  9. Ed Richards
  10. Nathan Murphy
  11. Darcy Fogarty
  12. Charlie Constable
  13. Jack Higgins
  14. Hunter Clark
  15. Oscar Allen
  16. Zac Bailey
Changes constantly though.

------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: And here's the meta rankings as of 01/11

1. Luke Davies-Uniacke
2. Paddy Dow
3. Jaidyn Stephenson
4. Adam Cerra
5. Nick Coffield

7. Andrew Brayshaw

Ballard very close for me.

Also interesting to see everyone's happy to take Richards at 9, I thought I'd be alone there.

Had to put Ballard in at the end. He has one of the highest ceilings of anyone left, actually could have one of the highest ceilings in the draft.

Not sure whether to make heads or tails of D.Fogarty given his obvious lack of endurance. Screams Aaron Francis to me.

O'brien is way too outside and that really hurts him in my rankings. I'd have him closer to 30 than 20.

And Higgins has already got close to his ceiling already what you see now is what you'll get. Also his lack of speed and agility for a smaller player makes me go off him. If we go for a small in this draft I want someone with obvious wheels.

Nice
We both rate Stephenson highly

Have Dow below a couple, Rayner down compared to everyone else

I think taking Rayner with the intention of turning him into a midfielder would be almost silly, but definitely think he is one of the best small/medium forwards in this years draft pool

I usually hate to say the phrase "could be anything" but I think for once it applies with Ballard.

I think Fogarty's injury has hampered him this year, which is not something that could be said for Francis in his draft year. Rayner similarly has a rubbish tank. Can understand why it would scare people off though.

Agree on O'Brien but I've still got him hovering around 20, which might say more about my lack of excitement about others.

Also agree with the "has hit his ceiling" as a knock on Higgins, but just think he'd provide something we don't already have. I like the idea of drafting a small forward and I think he does enough good work there to justify a pick at 16.

I'm not a huuuuuuge fan, but I think things are being twisted to suit agendas with Higgins.

I've seen it bandied about that he has hit his ceiling because of his professionalism. With pretty much anybody else it would be a positive: "Outstanding work ethic and approach to training, will get the best out of himself."

I get the concerns and criticisms but think that one is stretching it.

I think, absolutely, Rayner is the most talented medium forward in the pool, but his poor endurance, inconsistent production and lack of defensive workrate makes me quite concerned that he won't reach anything near his ceiling. Dow I have issues with simply because he's played so little above school level. Only three games at TAC Cup level, where only one of them was very good, and the short U18 Champs means I see him as quite a risk to take as a top 5 pick. i see him as talented and having really damaging traits, but that bit below Stephenson and Cerra, in my opinion.

Leave f/s off if you think they would match.
