I heard over the weekend Collingwood have this kid in their sights. They will try and package up this years and next years first round pick for Norths first round pick.
I seriously doubt North are that stupid to take it.
I hope they do that and then Adelaide take him at no.1

Here is Knigtmare's two round phantom draft, has us matching Carton's bid for MJR at 43, a double knee reconstruction guy at # 41 and a 180cm 73kg midfielder at #21

I presume that would have to be both of this year’s firsts (14 & 16) and next year’s first, making him more expensive than Jeremy Cameron (3 firsts, with no second rounders coming back). Still doubt North would do it, they really need an iconic young player, which McDonald has the potential to be, whereas those Collingwood picks would probably just get them three more Taylor Garners.

Knightmare's most recent phantom draft didn't include Gold Coast academy prospects (Davies, Jeffrey & Lake) in the national draft labelling them as "pre draft". Does anyone know if this will happen come draft period? If so does this would mean my estimate of our first pick (17) landing at 24 would push one back to 23 not that it changes anything

when Gold Coast finished last again in 2019, the AFL gave them a host of concessions, including extra rookie list spots ( they may have as many as 10 rookie spots?? - although they should be called Richmond Rookery spots, really) and the ability to pre-list Academy players.

I think they last until at least 2022.

A bit more info on Powell Ezy:

3.04 for 20m sprint a bit average but a ball magnet by the sounds of it.

Growing on me. Dual sided, side step, time and weighted kicks. And a blood line.

With a year of experience and exposure, he has the tools to have improved into top 10.

Would be a steal at 17. I have Finley and Chapman my two wants. Just get one.

Would be happy with either of those but maybe a slight reach, would need to slide on current projections but if ever there was a year for surprise selections it could be this year, some might gamble on players sight unseen this year?

I watched Chapmans video earlier. I love the way that immediately he looks to play on. The one thing I didn't see to much of him was man on man, tended to be a lot of intercept marking floating across (which is fine), I was just hoping to see a bit more of Grimes / Rance defensively, but really liked what I saw.

Very nice highlight package that kid. Great skills and gets his own ball.

why does Macrae look like a Footscray player to me?

Slowish but as a first touch inside mid he looks alright. A good footballer

that 3.04 was a preseason measure and didnt test at the SA combine (calf)

but yeah we are pretty sorted for slowish inside mids with graham and ross and RCD for a few years

and with our game plan, we dont really need accumulators?

If Adelaide dont take Logan McDonald, they are mental

huge fast goal kicker with mitts and a tank proven against men.

a rare beast.

Didn't pick up that it was a preseason time and RCD has explosive speed so a slip of your pen in pegging him as slow.

Yep on Adelaide, the key forwards are back, everyone needs one.
