    The 2016 draft is here, all 18 clubs will be hoping that they can pluck champions of the future at their turn, with the 2016 All Australian U/18s sure to be in the mix for the first 2 rounds.

      Jack Graham won the Larke Medal for best player at the champs. Should be picked up in the 20-30 mark.

      Seems the late mail is on McGrath being picked #1. McCluggage still a possibility. Setterfield talk is Dodo playing silly buggers per usual.

      Bit exciting considering there's so many ways teams can go this year, it will be one of those draft where it's fun to look back on in hindsight.

      For us Supercoachers, Will Brodie is the one to look out for and hope is not called out too early. Ready for Rd1 midfielder who was talked up as a potential number 1 early on, could now go as low as North's pick @ 11-13. Every pick not taken = money saved.

      Some pithy comments would be nice Len, I don't expect interviews, but they would be nice. BTW, your boy Kennedy is watching so don't put the mockers on that friendship.

      McGrath was correct
      mClugage #3 (Lions)
      Settersfield #5 (GWS)
      Brodie at #9 to the Suns

      IMO not a bad idea if it is early picks they are burning for 2017, just in case the AFL is heavy handed over the Whitfield matter

      Graham went at Pick 53 to the Tiges, that's a fair slide although to be fair the big footy consensus phantom draft had him pegged at #37

      Based on our drafting post 20 I think we were "advised against it"

      Doesn't matter how many times I see pick 58 listed I still can't figure who was smoking what

      Brisbane smashed it, but obviously a worry as to whether they will all be there in 5 years time.

      Very happy with our English Bulldog, perfect fit for the high-speed game style that we have going.

      Think the Saints reached a bit early on Long, he wasn't as good as guys like Hrovat and Stevens when playing alongside them in the VFL, yet those two guys only netted us much lower draft picks than Pick 24.

      I'm biased but Matt De Boer goes alright. Absolutely tore up the WAFL this year. Probably should've gone to another team which needs midfielder, but GWS may want to use him in the forward line, which Freo tried and failed at.

      Luke Ryan should be a lock for SC. Maybe Thomas Stewart too. Sam Powell-Pepper from the higher ups, not sure who else outside of top 5, who'll be too expensive. Darcy Cameron will get games sometime in the year with Sydney's fragile ruck stocks so a perfect downgrade target.

      Midfield coach in our NEAFL side, we should have just hired him for the roles, not wasted the pick, different spending cap in play that way.
      I can't think of a single best 22 player he could replace, and is behind others as a backup in every role also, lunatic pick for our squad.

      Apart from Sam Hayes and James Worpel (who will play TAC Cup again in 2017) seven other players named in the TAC Cup Team of the Year were not picked up and you would think they would all be in the running for rookie spots:-
      - Sam Fowler (Fwd)
      - Brett Blair (Fwd)
      - Mason Blakey (Def)
      - Brodie Romensky (Def)
      - Taylin Duman (Def)
      - Lachlan Filipovic (Ruck)
      - Luke Bunker (IC)

      With Matt De Boer the only 2016 AFL listed player picked up in the draft you would expect several others could be rookied and there are likely to be a few mature agers from the State Leagues as well, it sounds like Brett Eddy is being talked up but I am sure a few of you may be able to suggest others.

      not at all @graeme

      breaking news on www.afl.com.au

      In the matter of the disrepute charges against Lachie Whitfield, Graeme “Gabby” Allen and Craig Lambert the AFL finds Greater Western Sydney Football Club be as guilty as hell.

      Greater Western Sydney submitted that it should be stripped of all 1st and 2nd Round draft picks for the next 10 years but after much consideration the AFL determines that a fitting and far harsher punishment is that Greater Western Sydney shall draft no fewer than 2 Fremantle Football club rejects from a motley crew comprising Mat Deboer, Tendai Mzungu and Alex Silvagni.

      Should Greater Western Sydney finish in the top 4 in 2017 (and let's be honest with all their academy talent they will be unlikely to drop a game) the AFL has determined that a further punishment shall apply in that Ross Lyon shall be appointed head coach of Greater Western Sydney on a 20 year deal from 2018-2037, with Zac Dawson tagging along on a 5 year $17 million marquee contract.
