According to today's AFL article (link provided), we got nothing in return. If this is so, the exercise in giving up any future pick to move up 3 places seems odd unless one of the two eligible clubs in front of our 5th round pick (Ess and StKil) were known to be interested in him.

Could have sworn the graphic on screen after the trade said we traded fourth rounders next year as well as traded up this year.

Bailey Smith will be in our top 5-10 players by next year blokes a freak. Hes our fourth best mid after Bont, Macrae and Dunks. Libba and Wallis are the ones who will be playing 2s over Baz
I actually reckon Smith will kick 20+ goals next year
Might float forward a bit and be a mismatch for defenders

I'd like to see Smith get an extended run on a wing. With a full preseason, he'll have the tank to run all day and with a little time and space, his run, carry and ball use can be seriously damaging.

I seriously can't decide where I want to see Smith. I agree that he could be damaging up forward, while also thinking he has the skillset to be a very good winger. At the same time, I think his work in congestion is elite for his age, and he could really evolve into basically Dangerfield with a better kick, so I'm quite keen to see him played as an inside mid predominantly.

Can see him replacing Macrae from the current "big 3" inside mids, as I think Macrae is far better suited to an outside role where his insane workrate and often flawless delivery would really come in handy

Fair enough (assuming the article is accurate). I think I heard it via the feed or a post on draft night. In any case a 5th round pick is worth almost nothing.

In Power's post draft interview he said he thought other clubs that still had picks were keen on him. That makes sense, for the same reasons we were keen: Late pick, low risk, very good form when fit, potentially high reward.

Am I correct in assuming that we gave up next year's 4th round pick to Hawthorn to move 3 places up in this year's draft to select Garcia? If I'm incorrect could somebody clarify?
Yeah straight swap. As I read it, in the context of bidding next year - as it currently stands, worst case (we finish last) we've given up pick 58/194 points, best case (premiers) pick 73/9 points.

When looking at it from a draft points perspective we should also count our fourth this year that we didn’t use as a result of the trade.

I think this is the way to go for next year. We have a bit of a hole at the wing opposite Hunter with a mixture of players rolling through there each week.

There’s not a lot of room in our midfield so I don’t want to see him wasted as a forward for extended periods. Think the Mitch Duncan role.

So based on last year's ladder and not including bids, trades, passes etc. etc. we have 13, 45 and 49. This equates to 1846 points, enough to match from Pick 3 onwards without going into deficit. We should be good folks

Correct! But I think we still have to draft 3 people regardless on how many picks we have

What do the points work out to be when we are 2020 premiers?

We have multiple strong FS and Academy players to (likely) pick up though - not just Marra. Think we need at least another second to add to that list ideally. A trade out reasonably likely to achieve that imo
