AFL draft analysis: Fremantle Dockers

    An eleventh-hour trade that saw Fremantle secure pick 2 from the Gold Coast Suns for Lachie Weller has the Dockers come into the 2017 AFL draft with two selections in the top five.

    A hand of cards like that, if played right, gives them the chance to set up their future for a generation to come, and makes them one of the most intriguing clubs to consider on Friday.

    Draft picks: 2, 5, 42, 60, 66, 70

    Trade period wrap
    Out: Lachie Weller, Hayden Crozier, Harley Balic
    In: Nathan Wilson, Brandon Matera

    Click here to see the rest of Maddy’s draft analyses.

    Losing Lachie Weller was a blow, as his form over the past few seasons has improved to the point where he looks likely to become one of the competition’s best midfielders. However, getting pick two for him was an absolute coup, providing their strongest draft hand for many years.

    Harley Balic struggled with homesickness during his two years at the club, and while he has the potential to develop into a good player, there was no point keeping him. Hayden Crozier likewise had talent but was at times inconsistent, and his departure isn’t a huge loss.

    Adding Nathan Wilson and Brandon Matera was shrewd – playing Wilson off half-back potentially frees up the likes of Darcy Tucker to play more in the midfield, while Matera will be a good replacement for Hayden Ballantyne, who is nearing the end of his career.

    Wilson is a genuine gun, and the Dockers will be rapt to have given up only a second-round pick for him. Matera has been plagued by injury and inconsistency over his career so far but may flourish in a new environment. Importantly, both players hail from Western Australia, so there won’t be any risk of the ‘go home’ factor.

    What they need
    With Weller’s departure they could do with some more midfield class, and likewise more developing ruckmen given Jonathan Griffin’s retirement and Zac Clarke’s delisting. They’ve bolstered their forward line in recent years, but it’s still an area that could do with work, particularly in the mid-sized forward area. Running defenders would also be good additions to the list.

    Who they might consider
    At picks two and five, Freo have the luxury of taking the best available player. That’s likely to be a midfielder, and any of Cam Rayner, Adam Cerra, Paddy Dow, Luke Davies-Uniacke or Andrew Brayshaw would be worthy additions. They might also look at someone like Hunter Clark or Darcy Fogarty here, but despite Western Australia natives Oscar Allen and Aaron Naughton being available here, I don’t see Fremantle taking either.

    Pick 42 will likely be too late for ruckman Sam Hayes, but there are a few others in the mix. They may also look to some local talent, such as midfielder Brandon Starcevich, or to the WAFL. They have shown in recent years a penchant for drafting mature-aged players – Luke Ryan last year, Lee Spur and Michael Barlow previously – so it wouldn’t surprise if they looked at one or two to bolster their list.

    Draft and trade strategy
    I haven’t listed all Fremantle’s picks here, but they are likely to take seven, which would be a massive haul. Given that and where their picks sit, they’re well placed to take a pair of future stars with their first two selections and then look to address needs later on. Whoever they get at picks two and five are likely to be able to play next year, as might some mature-aged talent, which would be a definite benefit for their developing team.

    This looms as another important draft for a side in a rebuilding phase, but with their trade period additions, they are building a nicely balanced list. It’s not often that a team outside of the expansion clubs has two top-five draft picks, and the Dockers need to make the most of it.

    In a few years, we may well look back on this draft as being the most formative in Fremantle’s development.

      Thanks for the article Maddy. You’ve provided a pretty good summary.

      I think Freo could happily use the first two picks to focus on their midfield options, with a bit of their potential future in this area was lost in Weller, Balic and even Crozier. Pace and foot skills would be first amongst considerations for me. I also think adding in players with attacking flair won’t hurt and provide better forward options in lieu of any top 5 key forwards.

      I’m really interested in who’s on offer at 42 and 60. They’ve had a pretty good strike rate in the lower ranges in recent times. Hopefully Liam Ryan is still on offer, otherwise someone like Nathan Kreuger as a development project.

          They should be thinking very long and hard about Liam Ryan. While they’ve got Matera in, they’ve also lost a few small forward type options in the past year or two, with Yarran, Balic and Crozier all going. I reckon they would’ve rookied Ryan last year if the Yarran situation had played out before the draft.

          The funny thing I see about Ryan is that although he won’t go in the first round and could possibly be a very late selection ,he could possibly be the best player in this draft. A real wild card in that regard if I’ve ever seen one.
          For those unaware of who he is I recommend a quick look at this.

              He’s also excellent at ground level AD with exceptional disposal and pace to burn. Certainly knows where the goals are while also being very creative.
              His marking though will certainly bring people through the gates if he can make it at AFL level.

      Anything that looks, smells or sounds like a key forward is something that we should be throwing the kitchen sink at. McCarthy can still go either way but Kersten is WAFL fodder.

        With the structure of this draft, Freo is probably best off keeping their powder dry on the key forward front until the later picks and try for some speculators.

        dontknowmuchaboutfootball said | November 20th 2017 @ 4:11pm | ! Report

        It’s interesting that everyone has written off Kersten. He’s generally regarded as having been next to useless, but he came 10th in the Doig this year.

        Sure, 10th is hardly elite, and it speaks to the number of injuries across the season. But, given that the nine names above his are all undisputed best 22, it does suggest that of all the also-rans, the coaches rated Kersten (20 games) the best over the whole season. McCarthy (19 games) didn’t make top 10, neither did Tucker (19 games). Or Weller (22 games), for that matter.

        I’m expecting more of Freo’s forward line this season, even without a KPF: Mundy playing forward even more than last season, and Bennell added to midfield/forward rotation mix, and Matera competing with Ballantyne and Grey for a spot. If we happen to pick up Liam Ryan (#daretodream), then who needs a KPF?

          Coming 10th is a lot to do with how many players missed most of the season. Plenty of tall keys to return. No need to go there.

          Freo will draft mobile but should take Naughton at #5 just so no one else gets him. He’ll be elite in very few years.

            Sandi, Walters, Bennell, Blakely, Langdon, Pearce, Apeness all return from long term injury. Fyfe, McCarthy, Ballas game time in their legs again. Wilson to give run. 11 pretty good additions.

                Sandi’s probably past his best, yes, and Danyle Pearce (who is 31, unless you mean Alex Pearce, who is 22) has never been a star player, but he does his role well.

                Walters is twenty-six. 26. Not 32. He was brilliant at stages last year, and I’m excited for his season next year. Hopefully he’ll keep that great form up.

                Fyfe, though, isn’t past his best. That’s ridiculous. Perhaps you meant he’s building towards his best. Because that’s a much more plausable statement than “Fyfe is past his best”.

            You are right on two points Harry, The harsh truth is if Lyon can not get freo in the 8 next year he should be moved on. If he continues to play old has beens and not play Matera and the new draftees in front of Ballantyne ,D.Pearce,Sheridan and Suttcliffe they will not make the 8. Will the leopard change his spots.Second point is Don Freos predictictions are generally proven wrong……The best one he said is Ballantyne is a better player than Betts…..his latest Ballantyne will kick 35 goals for Freo this year.

                15 Brownlow votes in a year where he was returning from injury throughout. His last 10 games were back to his brilliant best.

        “They aren’t building”

        What a strange comment about a side that will have in two years turned over 50% of their list.

        They have some outstanding young prospects in Logue, Darcy, Tucker, Ryan, Cox, Blakely, Langdon and Pearce and are about to add 7 players including two top 5’s to that group.

        plus an excellent trade haul of Hamling, Hill, Wilson, Matera, McCarthy and Kersten.

        How anyone can look at a lit with Fyfe, Neale, Walters, 2 Hills, Bennell, Sandi, Blakely etc and come up with the “its a nothing list” is beyond me.

      Dow,Naughton and Ryan would all be healthy inclusions to the Dockers list and I’d imagine that’s how they go. I think the Dockers taking Naughton means they’ll simply move Pearce forward where he has shown some promise when he’s gotten on the the park. Kelly will probably come down to which Perth club selects him first,although a club outside of Perth might also show some interest.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if the Dockers reach for a key forward at 5 though,slightly risky but we’ve seen clubs do that kind of thing before.

            I also didnt know of any handshake agreement with Collingwood but I am aware of another VFL club that’s very interested in Lyon,so it seems he’s heavily sought after which is understandable given his record. His contract at the Dockers is long term so both he and the club seem pretty committed though.

              I’d say anon (hth) needs to tell Rossy about this one. He’ll be surprised.

        I’d be disappointed if Freo picked Naughton. Have heard is kicking is a bit off, and the last thing Freo needs is a KPD who can’t kick, given they’ve had one only just leave. Already got class and depth in the back line. Alex Pearce belongs done back, not forward.

        Apparently Geelong are interested in Kelly. He’ll got to WC or a Victorian club. Don’t see Freo picking him.

          From what I’ve seen of Naughton his kicking accuracy is perfectly fine,in fact very good but like I said it can be a bit up and under or loopy if you like.
          Agree Kelly is more of a chance to go to WC and Geelong would make sense also. I could actually see quite a few WAFL players lining up in the AFL next year and the transition record of WAFL recruits has been pretty good recently which will help I’d think.

            It was a throwaway comment by one of those draft “experts”. You know how everyone repeats stuff they read or hear because very few have seen him?

            Peel and Freo fans have seen him. We’ve seen him kick two bomb goals from outside the 50 metre arc. He’ll do.

              Kicking certainly isn’t a natural strength for Naughton. He’s worked hard over the past year on it apparently and come a long way. Whether he’s got much more improvement, I guess remains to be seen.

              Either way, he’ll likely need to keep working hard on it over his career, which means he’ll probably always need to be careful with his kicks (often resulting in fruity loopy trajectory) and find it may slip under pressure or duress more than someone who has a more natural kicking talent.

          His coach says he is the most AFL ready prospect he has ever seen from the West since Glen Jakovich.

      Thanks for the article, Maddy. Great, succinct summary of where Freo’s at.

      I agree with you and other commenters: midfielders with our top five picks, before picking up a developing ruckman (potentially) or whoever the list management team see as the best avaliable talents with our later picks.

      Seven total picks would be a great haul, and hopefully an influx of raw, young talent would be beneficial to the club!

        If we want another ruck…which we don’t, Jones from East Perth should fall to the 60s. 203cm…24yo. The best ruck in the WAFL after Darcy.

          And Blakely, Langdon, Apeness. Ballas will burn again with pre-season in his legs.

          Apeness is my biggy.

              I just love the fact that the Eastern pundits (along with JonBoy) know so little about Freo. There is so much to come back even without recruits.

              Granted, they have to come back at least showing what they did before they went down but if they do we’ll have 35 players vying for best 22.

              Langdon will have a Blakely year, Blakely will have a Mundy year, Neale will have a Neale year, Bennell will have a Fyfe year, Apeness will have a Ben Brown year and Fyfe and Sunny (don’t forget Sunny) will be better than all. Then we have the Hills and the Brownlow medalist, Tucker. Well, he’ll be prominent in the Doig.

              ?Oh, happy days.?

                Tucker will be an interesting one to watch. Same with Hughes. Do they grow, or do they plateau? There’ll be no shortage of young fringe players who’ve had limited exposure who will be competing for sports: Ryan, Nyhuis, plus picks 2 and 5.

                I’m also expecting a genuine leap from Langdon.
