The slime have apparently been open in saying that they are interested in getting Langdon who GWS have put up for trade so there is no way they could get both. Plus I know who i would much prefer Clark out of the two.

Indicative draft picks: 10, 28
Who they're after: Geelong speedster Jordan Clark is a player of interest for the Dockers, but they face significant hurdles in convincing the Cats to part with the contracted WA product. North Melbourne goalkicker Ben Brown has been linked to the Dockers as a key forward partner for Matt Taberner.
Who's on the table: The Dockers are open to a trade for key forward Jesse Hogan, who is contracted for 2021 with a trigger clause beyond that. Contracted inside midfielder Connor Blakely wants to stay but could also find a new home after being left on the outer in 2020. Moving both players would open up significant salary cap space for the Dockers if they can broker deals.
Who's in limbo: David Mundy is certain to play on, but the wait on list sizes has delayed him putting pen to paper. The Dockers have also been forced to hold off on offers for wingman Brett Bewley and forward Lachie Schultz, who made solid contributions in 2020. Bailey Banfield is waiting on a new contract, while the future of rookie Leno Thomas is unclear.
Who's already gone: Isaiah Butters, Jason Carter, Hugh Dixon, Brandon Matera, Cam McCarthy, Tom North, Dillon O'Reilly, Jarvis Pina
Dream trade period: It is no wonder the Dockers are monitoring the talented, home-grown Clark, who could fit onto a wing or at half-back and join a young core. Speaking of the wing, Collingwood runner Tom Phillips, who is well-known to Justin Longmuir, could be a high-value pick-up if he is gettable. After his recent on an off-field challenges, getting a return for Hogan in the second or third round and off-loading a large portion of his salary would be fair. – Nathan Schmook
West Coast Eagles
Indicative draft picks: 30, 49, 54, 85
Who they're after: Small forward Zac Langdon will request a trade to the Eagles after kicking 23 goals from 31 games in three seasons at GWS. The mature-age recruit from Claremont will help the Eagles address their ongoing half forward issues.
Who's on the table: The Eagles have not placed any players on the trade table officially. They have a stockpile of ruckmen behind superstar Nic Naitanui, with rivals lodging enquiries about contracted big man Tom Hickey and premiership ruckman Nathan Vardy.
Who's in limbo: Brendon Ah Chee and Brayden Ainsworth have shown enough to earn new contracts, while premiership tagger Mark Hutchings remains an asset. Defender Lewis Jetta fell out of favour this season and remains uncontracted at 31. The future of premiership forward Daniel Venables would appear to rest on medical outcomes, with the Eagles exploring alternative ways to keep him on their list. Jamaine Jones and Nathan Vardy are yet to received new deals.
Who's already gone: Hamish Brayshaw, Mitch O'Neill, Nic Reid, Will Schofield, Anthony Treacy, Francis Watson
Dream trade period: Like Fremantle, the Eagles would be thrilled to land WA speedster Jordan Clark from Geelong. The Eagles don't have draft assets, but they have a highly-rated key position player in Jarrod Brander who they haven't been able to fit into the 22 in his natural role. Brander to Geelong for Clark could be a winning move if all parties agreed. Hickey is contracted and required if Naitanui suffers injury, but a strong offer could help the Eagles get back into the Draft, knowing Bailey Williams is developing. – Nathan Schmook
Jared Brander is nearly 22 played 11 games for a return of 0 goals ,hasn’t done anything to justify a straight swap with Clarke..... Geelong needs draft picks especially if they going to get Cameron of GWS
