    Lukosius, Rankine and Hill is enough reason for me not to want to part with our 2018 first. That is without knowing much of what else is available. Unless we improve A LOT we are a reasonable chance of picks 1-3 next year.

    If you watched Rankine or Hill you would see it too and as for Lukosius - he is getting compared to N Riewoldt. I know the "next year's draft" crap gets trotted out every year but this is the first time I have believed it might be true. At least at the pointy end. Then there is King and O'Reilly giving us a decent chance at a KPF since we look likely to miss them this year.

    Keep it IMO - except for the very unlikely event that Hogan wants to come home. Also would mean we couldn't trade our 2018 2nd for Wilson.

    Hill is an absolute gun. He will go first pick at this stage.

    Ahh Sibo - actually had ability and his name has a ring to it as well but just about the worst work ethic ever for a draftee.

    Really not sure what will happen next year with our ladder position - we could easily bomb or seriously climb the ladder. Either way the prospects next year (O'Reilly another?) look very good and taking another next year keeps spreading our ages.

    I'm in the trade out our 1st pick for a player and later round picks every year camp

    Admittedly I'm here by myself......except for a shitload of midgies so getting extra 1st round picks isn't really something I would support unless it was to get a gun player in

    Honestly, there is not much i wouldnt do to get a hold of top 3 pick in next years draft. Lukosious is a certain superstar. This was his league debut in the SANFL, in a final, as a 16/17 year old...

    Doubt that, he is not ahead of Lukosius or Rankine and would have to fight it out with King and no doubt a few others I don't know so well.

    Looks like a comfortable top 10 though.

    Not with a spine of JJK and JGov.

    If they went full rebuild then maybe but they won't. More likely to try and top up for another amusing mid table finish or 1-2 week finals campaign.

    It was actually good trade for us, McPharlin was worth pick 1 on his own. It's not our fault that Hawthorn got Mitchell with 36, 17 other teams passed him up twice too.

    I've got a feeling you'll need a pick in the top 1 to get Lukosius.

    He looks good but no one is worth tanking and wasting a year over. How I see it - 2017 was our last chance to "tank" for a higher draft pick if we're serious about improving.

    Not to mention Lachie Weller's full time move into the midfield. Outstanding season, robbed of the norm smith.

    This isn't a strong draft. But I'll trade it for Hogan...

    Ahh but you see if Brisbane are last they probably take Rankine since they are stacked for talls (especially acter they take Ballenden this year) and Carlton likely take King or another mid. I am way to invested in next years draft already...

    I have him top 5 atm because we've yet to see some of the other highly rated draft prospects for next year in the u18s (eg the King brothers). Thought Hill would have come close to u18s AA as a bottom ager. Other than Lukosius, Rankine, and possibly the King twins, who else do you have a ahead of him?

    I rate him just for the single passage of play at 50s mark of the video below.

    "How deep does this draft go?

    Most years, recruiters will have a draft board of 50 players they would feel satisfied with selecting in the national draft or as rookies. This year that number may be closer to 40 for some clubs, with the depth considered below average this year."

    It's dire this year. Callum Twomey only has 25 on his board.

    *** yeah I know he always has 25 on his board.

    Very bad trading. Could have used the Pre season draft threat to get Mcpharlin for pick 20.

    I agree pick 36 was very lucky for the Hawks.

    Geez, hadn't seen that highlights package, only his U18s stuff (which was already more than enough). What an absolute gun.
