To be fair to Twomey, he hasn't done a phantom draft yet. He's provided top 30 lists based on the kids talent and performance to that point in the year. A phantom draft has to take into account where clubs have picks as they will have different ratings and preferences for types of players etc. Academy bids, father sons, picking locally, replacing needs and so many more factors come into things so it's far simpler for him to provide a top 30 list of the kids than a phantom draft.

Henry is a top 10 pick for mine both in terms of talent and where I think he'll be drafted. He's easily the best small forward available and there are a lot of teams who need that sort of player. personally, I'd have Robertson in the early/mid teens but as a WA kid, he probably rises in our estimations to be a solid pick at 10.

Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

Do you honestly think clubs and recruiters pay attention to phantom draft lists on the AFL website?. I would envisage the recruiters/clubs would have their targets way in advance of the draft, they would have already interviewed their potential draftees, compiled their lists of targets and also have contingency plans available. I really struggle to see how hypothetical media articles promoting certain players would sway their decision making process.

I think they would. The good journalists put them together after talking to people in the industry, including recruiters and football managers to get an idea of what they're thinking and what their intentions are. Clubs don't give that information to other clubs.

They're not going to base their decisions on it but they'd have a good look and see if there was something they could use.

I reckon Melbourne will be all out after this bloke. They've been crying out for a decent Jackson... afterall, it's never been the same down at Dee land since this Jackson left...

Correct, Shane, all clubs will be checking the AFL news all year to make sure they don't miss any snippet that has slipped through to a journo by mistake. Except the WA sporting "media" of course.

Jackson rips Mike Sheahan to shreds in this interview... let's hope young Jacko lives up to the old boy.

Getting back to the young Jackson, the fact that we rookie listed our only young key forward prospect in Dixon, has me thinking we would be going after Jackson in the draft.
Not that I know anything about it really. Just a hunch.

But you watched it, right? Not sure who is more cringeworthy, Jacko or Mike.

Come on. Flash Gordon and Jacko touring America, solving crimes and going antiquing in their Winnebago. You'd watch it.

Twomey and Kevin Sheehan have put out a top 30 mock draft.
They’ve got us taking Jackson at 7, matching a bid for Henry with our 10, then taking Elijah Taylor with our round 2 pick.
Would anyone be unhappy with that result?
