Players must be under 21 on 1 January and played 10 matches or less.

Carlton players eligible for nomination for the 2020 award (as at the end of the ND):

- Tom De Koning (TDK)
- Liam Stocker
- Finbar O’Dwyer (FO’D)
- Ben Silvagni (BSOS)
- Brodie Kemp
- Sam Philp
- Sam Ramsay

I think Stocker and TDK are our best chances for nominations in Season 2020, with Kemp likely to feature in 2021.

Macreadie only the 9 games so far but has turned 21.

(Found last year’s thread near ... Bluemour Melting Pot XIX - Give Me Ed Baby - Return of the Prodigal Son)

OP from last year’s thread ...
POST 2018 AFL DRAFT UPDATE

Players must be under 21 on 1 January and played 10 matches or less.

Carlton players eligible for nomination for the 2019 award (as at the end of the October 2018 trade period):

- Tom De Koning
- Angus Schumacher
- Harrison Macreadie
- Pat Kerr
- Will Setterfield

... and our new batch of draftees ...

- Sam Walsh
- Liam Stocker
- Finbar O’Dwyer (FO’D)
- Ben Silvagni (BSOS)


I think Sam Walsh and Will Setterfield will go alright.

Stocker is the logical choice here IMO.

Reckon he's the only one likely to play more than a handful of games, though TDK could get an extended run at it if our key forwards are struggling with injury.

Stocker you'd think.

In fact I think Stocker will be better than anyone we drafted this year.
I like Kemp a lot, but I like what I think Stocker will bring to the team more.

Who knows or really cares about the RS, but this guy is a brute that will make others around him walk taller......I predict.

Love Stocker, but in my opinion Philp will catch the eye most. He'll get 7+ tackles a few games in a row, and he'll be big and quick and strong the whole time.

Would love for Finbar to get a gig and smash it, become a cult hero off the HFF/Forward pocket.

I’m happy to make the case for TDK.

Third year in the system as a tall is about when they start to show something (see Harry McKay). He has an opening with injuries to Charlie and Harry. Plus, Matty K is vulnerable to injury, and the competition as a backup is between TDK and a former Hawk who hasn’t played many games.

Contrast with Stocker, who is up against others who can play in his position. He also needs to build a tank. The consensus when he came onboard was that this was a 2-3 year project. He might come ahead in leaps and bounds, but still struggle to be in that top echelon after only one full preseason.

TDK it is!

Don't forget Matty Cottrell!

If Cottrell is our highest rated RS nominee in 2020, we're playing finals.

All we need is a few small forwards and incremental improvement from the mids. If any of these draftees are a bolter/ready to go, and Cottrell outdoes them, look out.
