I know this is already being discussed in another thread but that thread does not have a poll and I am very interested to see what the overall consensus is on the Swans board on who we all want the Swans to take with pick 3.

Now, for this question a couple of caveats. This is not a question of who do you think is the best player in the draft. So for instance you may think McDonald is the best player in the draft, but if you also think that Adelaide will take McDonald with pick 1 and he will not be available at pick 3 then don't select McDonald. This poll is about who you think will realistically be available and also the player that you want.

However, if you want McDonald and think Adelaide will go with Tilthrope and North will go with Hollands then vote away for McDonald.

The Swans pull a surprise, trading Pick 3 to Essendon for 7&8.

The surprises don’t stop there though, as the Hawks, Roos & Essendon all go with bizarre reaches, allowing the Swans to take DGB at 6 & Phillips at 7

Campbell then doesn’t attract a bid until Port enter in the mid-30’s, which is promptly matched.

The Swans close out the draft taking Gulden at 51.

My vote for Holland’s for the following reasons:
1- type of player only ever available in top 5 of a draft.
2- mids are safest (no project fees please)
3- Phillips (IMO ONLY) is a handball centric mid, similar to Cunnington where he would absolutely add to the team and solid 200 gamer, but not the superstar Holland’s could be)
.....sadly I seem to be the only one.

Hollands is a bit of a risk with his knee injury though.

My mum is 62 years old and 155cm. She might not be the best choice.

I don't watch football with her as she yells at the TV for the players to jump higher. The Swans would be an amazing team if, according to her, each of our players were able to jump a little higher.

Obviously McDonald, but will not be available.

So would be Hollands, DGB and Phillips.

Really interesting to see if we go tall as next years draft is stacked with midfield talent - eyes on Sonsie and Chesser.

Also if we need tall fwd Van Rooyen would be ideal

I havent seen draftees live, thats not the impression ive seen from others, but bloody hell if we draft Cunningham 2.0 at pick 3 I'm going to be intollerable on here for supporters that only handle positive vibes.

Who was the last AA ruckman to win a flag the year they were at least in the squad? Genuinely don't know
my guess will be cox but dont know if he did, guy was a bloody phenom.

Just checked, Cox didnt, broke his collarbone mid year but check out his AA years he did make it. Arguably on track to win it in 06 too.

One of the defining memory of my childhood is my mother yelling at Greg Stafford to jump more.
