I reckon we won’t be seeing much broom action for a while.
As it stands we have 4 picks in what is supposedly a weak draft. We’ll be looking to add players via trade, but until we’ve done that we won’t know which areas we’ve been successful in filling, and which are still outstanding.
There are a whole lot of guys who you’d think would depend on what happens at trade. Bird, Dea, Howlett, Morgan, Jackson Merrett, Long, McKernan, etc.
Then there are the guys that might be tradeable(eg one of Brown and Hartley if we decide Francis is a key back or we get a Schache to provide depth forward and potentially free up Hooker if required), but who we’d happily keep.
It’s pretty possible that we could free up 10+ spots on the main list. And it’s also certain that we wouldn’t take 10 picks to this draft. So we have to wait and see. What can we get in trade, will we upgrade Draper and/or Long, how many picks do we really want, will we add a DFA or 2?
Time will tell.
