I liked this but I tend to read reviews of music i already like. Do you have a link for last year's or the years before? To see how accurate the predictions are?

We seem to be getting heavily linked to Ed Allen.

Not a bad pick, can certainly see us taking him at 12. Well built, tall, agile and has pace.

I had turned my attention to this year's draft, who is available and who we may select.

I listened to the road to the draft mock draft and they have Ginbey going to gold coast and WCE taking Jhye Clark and Matthew Jefferson. it's kinda boring having to wait. I had a look at last year predictions and they had the Eagles Taking Erasmus, who was taken by freo and Campbell Chesser was expected to be taken at 23 by Geelong. Port were predicted to take Josh Sinn, who they did take. So I wonder if we got their 2 round pick essentially for nothing.

Ginbey to Gold Coast has been thrown around a lot.

Geelong will take Clark.

Phillipou, McKenzie and Busslinger would be on our radar if Ginbey is off the board. Tsatas might be there if he slides, but interstate clubs are wary of him as a go-home player.

I can see us grabbing Ed Allen at 12.

I wouldn't be surprised if we bid on Fletcher at either pick.

We seem to be after speed and power.

It sounds like we are giving Western, ex Freo, a train-on. If someone has wheels, we are interested in them.

Other than Judd, who only left after things went south, and even then he made sure West Coast go compensated, the club doesn't have a terrible retention problem. Other than players who want to go to Port Adelaide? Tsatas actually sounds like Judd, elite clearance player with speed. Very little defensive pressure. He may complain and want to go home, but a few games of NicNat tapping to him, and he may enjoy himself.

Don't forget Fraser Gehrig was pretty much a star - all Australian - when he left after 6 years, though had had a bad injury run for a while, still 115 games and 159 goals; not bad for his development years and he played swing man or even the wing. Then he grew into a real beast of a player at St Kilda 145 games and 390 goals! One of the best.

We did get the brother of the best female soccer player in the world out of the trade; so a win / win in the end. :lol:

Gavin Bell has said we are looking at mids in the top end of the draft.

“We’re looking for midfielders, I don’t think there’s any secret there so we’re looking in that space,” Bell told SEN WA.

“And generally at the top of the draft, that’s where the best mids are.”

I would be happy with Ginbey, Allan, Barnett and Hotton/Darcy/Burgeil.

If Ginbey is gone by pick 9then there is still plenty of talent to choose from. Phillipou and Mackenzie look great also. Jefferson would be a good selection too as we need another key forward on the list - JD is 31 next year and Allan needs substantial assistance. I'm not sure how Williams will play out for us.

Even Isaac Keeler who plays as a genuine forward with strong ruck capabilities.

From what little I know I don’t like the sound and vision of Ginbey as a pick 8. He looks like he gets to dominate solely because he’s bigger than everyone else he plays against.

Logic also says that if the WA midfielders were so good surely we would have done better in the state matches?

Allen strikes me as a gamble but happy to take that gamble if we get a more proven kid at 8. He could be Brander or he could be a gun - the future mid/ruck tall ala what Freo want to do with Jackson. Also happy with a few other names that might be there so pick 12 can be a bit of a wildcard for us.

I hope GC take ginbey as is being reported as it takes the decision out of our hands and means one of the other ‘ proven’ mids are available.

From then I have no idea, but a KPP will be needed. Do not want busslinger at 8 or 12!

I've not been following it too closely I admit, no doubt will really get into it all this week. From the limited videos I've watched on the WA players and that I always like the idea of picking up strong goal kicking mids with footy smarts - not half back flankers who could be mids - there look to be three WA boys who tick all the boxes. If we can pick up two of these three with our first two picks I'd be very happy;

Elijah Hewett - ready to play many games next year, goal kicking, footy smarts, fast and strong. And interviews really very well on AFL.com and the WAFL.com showing real confidence and intelligence.
Reuben Ginbey - looks ready to play some games next year, footy smarts, strong powerhouse and goal kicking. What's not to like in the long term, though I've not seen an interview. I don't share CP's concern that he just plays well because he is bigger than his opponents, he is not that big at 188cm and 81kg and you can only beat who you play against.
Ed Allen - I reckon he'll need building up a season or two or three at his size, maybe a few games next year to give hm a taste or what's required, but a tall strong mid like him will be on every clubs long term wish list. Bound to have great footy smarts from his fathers guidance and interviews like he does.

And with much talk of Jedd Busslinger I do like the looks of him heaps, footy smart athletic defender in the style we love but I'm just not sure we need him like we do the above mids but if he unlikely slips to pick 20 then yes.

Darcy Jones, please if he is available at 20 or 26 lets pick him up! Super fast and agile with footy smarts and goal licking sense. Interviews well. We'll be saying Junior who? Might take a few years to build up but the wait will be worth it.

Cal Twomey has us taking:
9. Reuben Ginbey
POS: Midfielder/defender
Ht 189cm, Wt 82kg, DOB 10/9/04
From East Perth/Western Australia

It has been an amazing rise throughout this year for Ginbey, who has pushed up and up the board with his recent run of form. He played at senior level in the WAFL early in the season for East Perth as a defender before moving into the midfield, where he made his mark. He has power and strength and is part of the group of players at the top of the draft pool with explosiveness. The Eagles moved down the order in the Trade Period to grab two picks within the top 12 and Ginbey would be a great result if he's still available at pick 9.


12. Ed Allan
POS: Midfielder
Ht 194cm, Wt 83kg, DOB 26/5/04
From Claremont/Western Australia

The son of Fremantle's first captain playing for West Coast? It's in contention for Allan, who has come from the clouds to be a genuine late-season draft bolter. The son of former Hawthorn and Dockers star Ben, Ed is not eligible as a father-son at either club but he has rocketed up the draft boards with an excellent finish to the season. He's got the 'could be anything' factor about him: he's tall, quick, athletic and versatile and has plenty of upside too.


23. Elijah Hewett (a big slider)
POS: Midfielder
Ht 185cm, Wt 85kg, DOB 27/5/04
From Swan Districts/Western Australia

There is a chance Hewett is still available by the Eagles' third pick. He has been a game-breaker at stages throughout this season as another midfielder in the pool with strength, speed and an explosive streak. He spent time playing for Swan Districts' senior WAFL team and enjoys busting out of a stoppage and also pushing forward. Clubs inside the top 10, such as Geelong and St Kilda, have put time into him but he could also get through a few more positions and be available later on.


29. Cody Burgiel
POS: Midfielder/forward
Ht 183cm, Wt 80kg, DOB 9/9/04
From Gippsland Power/Vic Country

The Eagles have put in some time on Burgiel and he shapes as a second-round selection. A ball-winner who has shown he can play in multiple positions and have an impact. He averaged 22 disposals for Gippsland in the NAB League and has shown across the season that he can also drift forward and hit the scoreboard. His speed is his biggest asset and he ran a 2.88-second 20-metre sprint at the Draft Combine.


I would be over joyed with this.

Chesser, Culey, Ginbey, Allan, Hewett as our staring mids. :shock:
