AFL Draft 2012 Preview – will be a corker

Dreamteam and Supercoach coaches need to watch the draft closely

Folks there is an old saying in Fantasy Footy that I’d like you to remember.

If you’re the smartest Supercoach or Dreamteamer in the room – you’re in the wrong bloody room.

Find that bloke who seems to always win the league, rank higher than you. Learn about his methods. How does he approach his Supercoach? What players does he seem to pick? Where does he get his info?

Along these lines I would like to provide the community with a tip that could really grease the wheel of your preseason campaign in terms of the rookies to look our for in 2013. The blokes from over at Contested Footy have slapped together a sensational guide of the young prospects on the table on draft day this Thursday. These are the smart blokes in the room on draft day folks make no bones about it:

Contest Footy’s 2012 AFL Draft Guide. Top notch

Now while the contested footy lads will be all over AFL draft day like a rash you will understand that this is an extremely busy time for myself. I will be advising several clubs in a consultative capacity on the day. So I thought I’d provide a run down on a few of the top picks and then a few who will be cheap enough to consider in your Supercoach starting teams next season

#1 – Lachie Whitfield

Almost a dead set lock in as the first pick this year so will be heading off the GWS with old mate Sheeds. Lachie is a footballers footballer without a doubt – but is also a ripping athlete. I am fair dinkum shuddering at what GWS will be doing to this competition in 5 years time. This bloke is a freak.

Just to give you an idea of how he’s rated, well respected talent manager Kevin Sheehan (an eye for talent at least matching mine) reckons “He’s probably one of the best young players we’ve seen emerge in the last decade”.

Supercoach or Dreamteam wise he’ll of course come in with that big 1st draft pick premium so there will be better value elsewhere.

#10 – Joe Daniher

Smokin Joe will go to Essendon as a father son pick and could be an interesting one Supercoach and Dreamteam wise. At number 10 will not attract the hefty premium that he would otherwise have attracted being selected higher in the draft.

He is an athletic forward who might also ruck (at 201cm!) and I reckon he would have gone at between pick 2-4 if he wasn’t his fathers son.

“He could be one of the best players to ever go through the TAC Cup in the 21 years I’ve seen of it” reckons Ian Kyte from his old mob the Calder Cannons.

Will be included in a few forward and rucklines next year

Pick 27-32: Tim Broomhead

Must be seriously considered on marketability alone with this name.

May just sweep us all off our feet and get selected early. I don’t think we can brush him aside when we all sit down to pick our Supercoach and Dreamteam sides in 2013. There are some queries around his ability to effectively remove spiderwebs from eaves without leaving the webs pressed against the surface of the eaves. May be controversial if he refuses to remove his dustpan before commencement of play.

Champagne comedy from your old mate… Jock Reynolds.

Enjoy draft day folks… stick like glue to contested footy whose coverage of all things draft is second to none.

    This years SC is going to be the most difficult year in the past few for rookies just because we won't have 15-20 guys from GC or GWS to pick from (I reckon I picked 4-5 rookies from GC/GWS the past two years). Definitely going to have to keep a close eye on pre-season to get a good look at the rookies and maybe even players drafted last year who didn't get many games. I know there's a few Crows from last years draft (Kerridge, Brown, Crouch) that will be looking like possibilities for this year.

    Daniher could have extra value if he's a FWD/RUC, there's not many of those guys in SC and as seen by Higgo's suggestions last year with someone like Roughead, they can be quite valuable at times.

    • Jock says:

      Yeah bloody good call Marc mate. Sam Kerridge surely must be in the gus for some serious game time early doors this year and if young Tommy Couch doesn't become a near permanent fixture I'll be gob smacked mate.

      • Marc says:

        Sando said at the presser today that he expects Kerridge to get more games this year. Was right up the front of the pack on the track at the first training session today as well, which is surely a good sign. He showed good form last pre-season and I was honestly surprised to see him only get the 1 game (where he was the sub).

    Eating less is not the answer.You have probably already established to oneself that starvation diets are destined for failure from the start.
    This can make you exhausted really immediately and you must therefore not do physical exercise that is as well strenuous.
    The second chapter is about working with the system to
    lean the stomach as nicely as the physique.The initially
    chapter focuses on how males and females ought to create their ab muscles accurately.

    By reducing your carbs intake on some days and
    rising carb consumption on other days, your physique is better in a position to retain your existing muscle and nonetheless decrease the levels of physique fat.
    The theory right here is that you can make your body leaner by a approach termed
    carb rotation.Every year thousands of guys and women give
    their own achievement stories about employing the system.

    Who doesn’t want to have the best six pack abs?This will assist convert protein and carbs into muscle.This plan does not emphasize boring monotonous cardio routines.You will have to incorporate a nutritional component to your plan.One routine will direct you to start out a period with 4 days of lower levels of carbs taken in and then observe this routine with eight days of greater levels of carbs.Carbs will stimulate the production and release of insulin.So make confident that you drink at least two liters of water daily just before and whilst you are go on such a diet regime.
