    Judging by what's on FB, Will Gould is going to quickly become a cult hero. He might even get his own clothing line like great Dane!

    The pundits at the Roar think we had the best result at the draft given the picks we had and highlighted the thinking behind our draft process
    Bolters, sliders, and everything in between: a conversation about the 2019 AFL draft

    Who's set to rise and fall in the AFL next season?

    We always win at the draft table... even when we are restricted.
    Wild speculation, unsubstantiated rumours, silly jokes and opposition delight in another's failures is what makes an internet forum fun.
    Blessed are the cracked for they are the ones who let in the light.

    I expect 37 to be kept vacant next year. 40 could go to Rowles, a rookie.

    The other players needing numbers: Gould, Stephens, Elijah Taylor, Lewis Taylor, Warner. (Remember, we acquired two Taylors during the trading and draft period.)

    Possible numbers:
    1 = Warner
    2 = L. Taylor
    3 = Stephens (obvious choice)
    10 = Gould
    17 = E. Taylor (close enough to 19)
    What will be will be.

    Out of school and apparently bored, he slid in the draft (calling Jed Lamb) as he liked a bit of a drink and wasn’t seen as professional as could be.

    But once he got into the right environment at an AFL club, was good to go
    What do they expect. The week before he had just won a premiership with Glenelg.

    15, 28, 39, 40 and 47 are also available. Swans historically announced the numbers much later than most clubs. In practice, the numbers should have been assigned early for logistic reasons. Records and files have to be created and lockers have to be assigned when they start training... Anyway my guess will be #1 = Gould (Roos, Hall); #2= Gray (Davis,Shaw); #3 = Stevens (McVeigh) ;#10 = Warner (Jones); #15 = ET (Jack); #17= BOC (Tadhg); #28 =Taylor (his old number!); #39 = Brand (Grundy); #40= Rowles (Smith)

    You have outlined logical choices Aaron unless personal preferences come into it.

    According to the AFL site, we have the second least experienced list, with an average tally of games played of 55.6. Age wise, we are equal second youngest. Strangely, Brisbane, Fremantle and us, all have an average age of 23.54. In both cases, Gold Coast were the youngest/least experienced.

    Also, according to their table, we have 45 players on our list.

    Whoops, that should be; third least experienced, not second.

    Averages can be deceiving but we do now have a very young list with only Buddy 33 this year and JPK 31 this year over 30. We are entering an exciting period.
