Redden


Has dropped off a bit at West Coast but yes at Lions he was a "tackling machine" with his seasons averages ranging from 6 to mid 7's. Not too far off Priddis who would generally average mid 6 to 8.

And I think that has been mainly because he has been in and out of the team and has been in the same team as Priddis. When on his own has been pretty good and with more surety of role next year could re-visit his Brisbane numbers.
2017 sponsor of #5 - Brad (Mr Reliable) Sheppard. 25yo, 100+ games and counting.
2017 sponsor of #6 - Elliot (how good could he be) Yeo. Only 23 and looking to hit 100 career games in 2017.
2017 sponsor of #23 - Lewis (we need this excitement) Jetta. 27yo and heading for 150 career games.
2017 sponsor of #30 - Jackson (he's too good to be only 21) Nelson. 21yo, pick #51 in 2014, a bonus pickup.

Agreed. He hasn't been playing his usual role and has struggled to come to terms with the new role. Will be interesting to see how he and the team go with Priddis retiring now.

Already have Venables who fits that category. More inside mids than you can poke a stick at and not enough outside run.

1st round I'd be looking at a bigger bodied mid like Nicholas Coffield, Charlie Constable or Jaidyn Stephenson.
2nd Round I'd be looking at another tallish player such as Nathan Krueger, Aiden Bonar or Jackson Ross.
I'd also like for us to trade Tom Lamb and our 3rd round pick to Gold Coast for another 2nd Round pick and pick up Charlie Spargo, Dylan Moore or James Worpel.
Next 3 picks would be used on Lachlan Pascoe, Hugh Dixon and Brandon Starcevich.

I'd then Rookie Aaron Redhead, Tim Kelly, Liam Ryan and Tyler Keitel.

Venables is an inside/outside line-breaker mid (in the Shuey mould).

We can replace Priddis with Redden or Mutimer. Change a few roles in the team and see if we can unearth an unlikely star. Swap Waterman and Darling through the middle?

There has been some talk about Hunter Clark and a few phantom drafts have him as our first pick.

POS: Half-back/midfielder, Ht 186cm, Wt 79kg, DOB 26/3/1999
From Dandenong Stingrays/Vic Country

Two years ago, most recruiters would have said that as a 16-year-old Clark was the leading candidate for the No.1 pick come his draft year. He probably isn't in that mix now, however his second half of the season in particular has been superb and elevated his stocks. A standout game was Clark's 29-disposal and two-goal performance for the Stingrays against Sandringham late in the season. Clark is brave and strong, loves to tackle and can kick nicely on both feet.

Is it possible that Starcevich could go father/son to either Collingwood or Brisbane ?

So the official draft order has been released. We have picks 13, 30, 48, 67, 85.

For the first time in history, GWS don't have a pick inside the top ten. They don't even have a 1st rounder. They coped a big points penalty for the Lachie Whitfield drugs.

Their academy players could be fair go this year.

GWS are trading out Nathan Wilson, Devon Smith and Matthew Kennedy, they're bound to pick up enough points or even a 1st round pick from those trades. Be interesting to see what the muppets pay for Wilson.

Top 30 look pretty good this year. Enough talent there for us to get at least two good picks. Hopefully we don't trade out any of our first two picks and try and pick up another 2nd rounder from Gold Coast.

SO who do people think is most likely to be picked up by the Eagles in round 1 (assuming that we not move up from pick 13 ) ?

Cal Twomey has Hunter Clark at pick 13 which would be a good fit for us. I can't see us moving up in the trade period but even if we did Clark would still be about as good as we could get but then again we already have Venables who is very similar. Personally I'd like Coffield who is more of an outside mid and has Scott Pendlebury type traits. Another I'd like who wont be around at our 2nd pick would be Pettrucelle.

There will be a lot of interest in Coffield because of his range of traits. The Northern Knights captain can play all over the ground, but has tended to spend most of his time as a general type of defender who, at his size, can match up on different types of opponents. He has a turn of pace and can be a ball-carrier out of defence and through the midfield, he is a reliable kick, and in time would be expected to be in the midfield. Was a shining light for the Knights in their TAC Cup finals loss with 25 disposals and six clearances, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in the top-10 on draft night.

POS: Half-back/half-forward, Ht 184cm, Wt 73kg, DOB 12/4/1999
From Northern Knights/Vic Metro
August ranking: 21

Petruccelle's lightning pace makes him fun to watch. His trick is his speed, and it's a major plus in his favour. He runs a 2.82-second 20-metre sprint and clearly can get out of trouble and into space in no time. He has some things to work on, like getting more involved in games and his kicking, but he has a point of difference which should appeal. Athletically he's very strong, and as a former star junior basketballer, he has a great leap.

Yeah I was thinking Hunter Clark.

Good pace, good on both feet. Supposedly is the most classy player of the draft.

Pettrucelle is also a good fit. They have surprised us the past few years. Duggan and Venables were not who we thought we would take.
