The former is an explosive and versatile midfielder, while Nyuon, a member of St Kilda’s academy, shapes as a key defender but could also play in the ruck or up forward. Carlton - Sam Ramsay (inside midfielder, Calder Cannons/Vic Metro)3. North Melbourne slumped to an eighth consecutive AFL defeat but Rhyce Shaw was happy with an improved showing against West Coast in their last-round fixture. FREMANTLE gains Picks 52 and 55.9. These two South Australians bring the number of Croweaters on the Cats’ list to eight, after they took six last year.Crocker I’m less sold on – they probably didn’t need a small forward having Shane McAdam, Tyson Stengle, and Ned McHenry on the list already, but he might play a more defensive role than those players. The Dogs seem to be one club fairly unconcerned with the size of players, instead focusing on their strengths, which has worked out well for them with Caleb Daniel in particular, so it’s good to see Garcia get a chance.I was glad to see them take a punt on Rowles as a rookie – he’s an exciting, quick midfielder who played two games for Vic Country this year.But they took inside bull Ely Smith with their first pick last year, and have Corey Lyons on their list struggling to get a game, and signed inside midfielder Cam Ellis-Yolmen last month as a free agent. Richmond - Thomson Dow (inside midfielder, Bendigo Pioneers/Vic Country)37. Friday night forecast: St Kilda vs GWS They addressed their need for a key forward by taking Jones, a lifelong Bombers fan. COLLINGWOOD gains Pick 43. HAWTHORN gains a future third-round pick.2. 9.

He’s an elite kick, but slide down the order mostly likely due to his size (178cm). Adelaide Crows - Lachlan Gollant (wing, Calder Cannons)See every pick of the 2019 AFL national draft. Richmond (bid not matched by Brisbane) - Noah Cumberland (medium utility, Brisbane Lions Academy/Allies)18. Port Adelaide - Dylan Williams (general forward, Oakleigh Chargers/Vic Metro)5. The Swans have managed to get a good mix of players here. Hutchesson is a speculative selection, but the Giants wanted to round out their draft with someone who can play next year, and at 24 he fits that bill.It’s hard to do badly out of a draft where you have three top-ten picks, and Freo’s haul this year was no exception. Stephens is my favourite player in this year’s draft, and is the complete package as a balanced midfielder – quick, with elite endurance, excellent kicking, and can also win his own ball on the inside. Adelaide Crows - Josh Worrell (utility, Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro)38.
An interesting haul – the first three picks were used on talented forwards with lots of upside, but who lacked consistency this year. The AFL all-time great alphabet teams: Letter R Johnson was eligible to go to Brisbane as a father/son selection, but with the Lions only willing to offer him a rookie spot, Essendon swooped first on their NGA Academy member.The Cats really needed a key back to develop behind Harry Taylor, and got a good one in Sam de Koning. https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sportal_com_au/79/58/caleb-serong-hayden-young-liam-henry_1sp9b5b0sdlk1duxvs3n5kobi.jpg?t=-1364182794&w=500&quality=80https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sportal_com_au/ca/94/sam-flanders-matt-rowell-noah-anderson_jdzv9gpn2tfr114vhsoah0tci.jpg?t=-1364182794&w=500&quality=80 PORT ADELAIDE gains Picks 65 and 68.See every pick and trade by every club here in our 16. NORTH MELBOURNE gains Pick 35 and a future second-round pick.49. The 2020 AFL draft will consist of the various periods where the 18 clubs in the Australian Football League (AFL) can trade and recruit players following the completion of the 2020 AFL season. The Cats list manager likes drafting locals, South Australians, and is always prepared to take a smoky, and so it proved again this year. Gold Coast Suns - Matt Rowell (inside midfielder, Oakleigh Chargers/Vic Metro) 2.
WEST COAST EAGLES gain Pick 58.
There was plenty to take out of Round 16 for the class of 2019, with a bunch of up-and-comers continuing to stamp their mark on the competition. Cahill also fills a need as a tenacious small forward, and they did well to nab him this late. He’s raw, and will need time to develop, but is very talented.

League Clubs. Western Bulldogs - Riley Garcia (outside midfielder, Swan Districts/Western Australia)51. Fremantle (matched Carlton’s bid) - Liam Henry (outside midfielder/small forward, Claremont/Western Australia)42. BRISBANE gains Pick 22 and a future fourth-round pick.54. Carlton were the most active club on Thursday, placing bids on GWS and Fremantle academy players at pick 9, then trading that pick to Gold Coast for its picks 17 and 20. Worrell is a versatile tall prospect who can play at either end, but produced his best form this year as an intercept defender. It probably wasn’t intentional, but selecting two Sandy Dragons players who’ve been friends for years will likely help them settle into Adelaide life together. North Melbourne - Jack Mahony (small forward/inside midfielder, Sandringham Dragons/Vic Metro)19.
