Looking through a few phantoms including the bigfooty one that's all but concluded, doesn't seem CJ is all that highly rated.

Bittersweet as it's good he might be flying under the radar but also a decent sign that he may not be all that good.
Not good as in bad feedback, or not good as there isn’t much said about him?

it's right
by nominating him as a Next Gen Academy player we get him as a Cat B Rookie if nobody picks him up in either the national or rookie drafts, if the bid we can match at a discount
Glad you added that last bit, as I’m sure I’ve read people post things that imply that we can’t match any national draft bids.

for added fun and accuracy

if we don't have the points to match with picks available this year, we can go into point debt next year to get him if we so choose

The points come off the top of our first pick next year so the club would have to think he is pretty special to do that, meaning if we did watch out

What if nobody takes him in the ND, but someone grabs him as a Rookie, before we can?

Can we trump their Rookie Pick using ours, or is there a Rookie Pick Points System as well?

If he isn’t taken in the draft he’s automatically our rookie.

Be interesting if someone does try and get him before pick 43. Not sure Hawthorn wants to compromise on next year but we can compromise on our next this year but not the one after ...I’m pretty sure. The next pick gets us bugger all points though

Looks like he is skillful from the little i know.. although no-one in terms of mock drafters think he is much. Hope we give him a crack

We obviously see something worth investing in and the academy gives us plenty of time to assess compared to watching from afar

My word from Xavier College (an assistant coach) says the boy can play - I was asking about the younger Langford - my sauce said he was OK but CJ is the one that he would be getting excited with if he was a hawks fan
It's interesting that there isn't a lot of hype around him going high in the draft but coaches and academy insights suggest he's someone to get a little excited about.

If he goes to the rookie draft(likely) and a club tries to take him then I believe we can just match it with our next rookie pick and he becomes a Cat A rookie. If no one selects him in ND or RD then he automatically becomes a Cat B Rookie
