Coffield can play mid. Is genuinely quick and clean.
Can win his own ball.

Hardly.

His contested footy & tackling is extremely poor. He’s a legit one-way player. However he’s got weapons; beautiful skills & lighting quick. He’s also unproven in the midfield.

I’d still be stoked to get him. He’s what we need.

Leadership potential also and his composure is unreal

And just to be clear, this is a predictions thread for pick 7 & 8, not a who do I like/want... plenty of threads on the board to discuss the prospects.

Putting my money where my mouth is, I think it goes like this...

St. Kilda. Pick 7 - Jaidyn Stephenson
St. Kilda. Pick 8 - Nicholas Coffield

Not in line with my preferences as I have my doubts on Stephenson but Coffield in particular just keeps coming up again and again


I'll let you know Saturday morning who we draft, it's too close now to be bothering with speculation. We need facts, they don't bullshite. :o

I love your optimism but there is no way Dow is slipping down to 7. Brayshaw may even go as #1

2 underwhelming half backs???
Yipeeeeeee
Ffs. Top ten picks should be forwards and players with the real skill

Binar Stephenson DFogarty

3 guns - 2 of em will be there at the very least. JUST GET EM.


Really!!!

You'd risk 2 picks inside the top 10 on 2 kids who've already had serious medical problems, f*** I'm glad you not sitting at our draft table.

Fogarty if he's there, then he certainly come into calculations.

Changed. Looks like Stephenson may slide to the teens (now have him going at 12 - Croweaters) - had him going at 5 - Dockers.
Now I think Dockers might take Cerra

7-8
Coffield, Clark

Clarke

I am guessing now that there is NO WAY brayshaw will be available.

So in order I want 2 of:

1) Cerra
2) Coffield
3) Clark
4) Higgins

We have enough health concerns on our list already!

If two of picks 4-6 aren't mids, then somebody drops to our pick. Something like this:

1. Rayner
2. Cerra
3. Dow
4. LDU
5. Naughton
6. Fogarty

It seems really unlikely at this point though.

I reckon Naughton is the key... with Stephenson seemingly out, he’s about the only player not consistently in the top 6 that could climb in.

If that’s the case, it’ll be either Brayshaw or Cerra that slips... my gut however says Fogarty goes at 5 and our boy goes at 6.

The Age, Herald Sun and Cal Twomey all have us taking Clark and Coffield....better get used to it.
Nee!

I still wouldn't rule out anything. Twomey's already revised his order from yesterday. He's reporting that Freo go Cerra at 2 and North go best mid available at 4. That makes sense, but it also suggests that Twomey's Freo and North sources might not be that great, which makes you wonder about 5. And 4. And 2. And are we really sure Brisbane is taking Rayner? Heck - I'm questioning my own existence if clubs still rate Fogarty a top-ten pick.

I could definitely see Freo going tall at 5 and there's some suggestion Collingwood need another tall. I'm just not sure anyone has a feel for what Collingwood's going to do. I'm also not sure that multiple sources reporting Clark and Coffield to us aren't just copying each other's homework. At this point, I think the consensus top-8 is Rayner, Cerra, Dow, LDU, Brayshaw, Fogarty (???), Clark, Coffield. It'll be interesting to see how many, if any, of those are right.

Ok my last change! I just don't want to go past Higgins!!!! Love everything about him and 178cm isn't too small.

1. Cerra / Brayshaw or any top 5 midfield slider
2. Higgins (sorry I love him)
3. Coffield
4. Clark

Massive whisper is that we will take Coffield and Clark but if someone slips down (which could easily happen) then we will nab that player with pick 7.
