Pick 48


#1

I’m sure this will be just as busy as the pick 1 thread last year…right?

So most phantom drafts only go to 30 because this low down it gets tougher to predict.

Cal twomey article today suggesting the following kids are likely;
Tom North
James Worpel
Will Walker
Brayden Ainsworth

Worpel seems to be in the top 20 in a lit of phantom drafts, even if he pulled a charlie curnow i doubt he’d fall to our pick. Otherthing of note here is they are all mids. What of the others, any thoughts TAC watchers?


#2

If the talk of this draft being very weak are accurate I would hope we are looking outside the box a lot more to try to uncover a hidden gem from somewhere.


#3

Im hoping Cassidy Parish falls to us if we miss out on Worpel.

i think someone rated top 30 will fall to our pick, but Dodoro will pick someone from left field we havent heard of.


#4

I want Cassidy Parish.

Speculative pick, but no better environment to thrive than at bomberland with his brother.

Check out his TAC stats - 19 games, 14 times in the best.


#5

is ainsworth related to ben ainsworth


#6

Need a Barlow type in a state league.

Let’s top off a great trade week by plucking a 20-24yr big bodied mid from the VFL/WAFL/SANFL that goes on to be a gun.

BANG!!!


#7

I made it a bit clearer for Cassidy’s stats in terms of disposals and disposal efficiency…

Has anyone seen much of Cassidy?


#8

I really hope we take parish too, doesn’t sound like he will be hot property though so probably a reasonable chance to be available with our 2nd pick. Those KIE are probably what has hurt his currency but obviously wins a lot of the ball.


#9

his disposal is awful. those stats don’t align with what ive seen, you’d want hardy on his opposite foot.


#10

Butch.


#11

Are we talking Dylan Clarke type bad disposal where it’s just terrible action?

Or are we talking about terrible disposal ala Jobe Watson first few years?


#12

Given that we’ve already turned our first two picks into three best 22 players, I hope that we role the dice on a long shot with a huge upside.


#13

Worpel looks to be a great option if he slides, Tom North has a nice highlight from last year at 1:10 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKnJsahWhx8&feature=youtu.be. Haven’t seen much other vision of him.

Are there any reasonable KPF or KPD prospects that might be around the mark with 48?


#14

both, bad action, terrible results.

I should add, i’m all for getting him, but i think he slides back to rookie which would be a terrific pick up then. can then spend a couple years fixing his skills, and with a horrible action a nice simple mechanical action could see him improve a lot.


#15

They should sell the list spot to the highest bidder. I will mortgage my house! I am not sure I could compete with Paul Little. What would he pay for a year on the list. Would be a nuggetty little goal sneak as well.


#16

Would rather someone we’ve never heard of than a vanilla type who lasts late because he’s a forgazi.


#17

Little should provide exceptional delivery…


#18

I think we should be looking at best available inside mid or best available key forward with this pick and next pick.

I reckon someone in the top 20 will slide to our pick, we won’t pick him up, and blitz will melt a little bit.


#19

We need to play this for giggles. It’s pick 48

  • Give it to whoever wins the Tiwi BnF
  • Bring Dane Swan out of retirement
  • Let @benfti have the pick
  • Bring back Dean Rioli

#20

Best inside mid available for mine.

Any chance the cricketer Ed Newman from the Dragons could slip that low? Pretty much an inside mid who loves a clearance, but missed the TAC granny with suspension.
