    Your clubs rookie upgrades and draft picks?

    Who are your clubs rookie upgrades for this year and how many draft picks will you use?

    Brisbane -

    The Lions’ senior list has already been trimmed following the departures of Luke Power, Jamie Charman, Matt Austin, Xavier Clarke and Brendan Fevola, leaving five vacant spots for potential draftees or rookie elevations.


    With Clark also leaving that makes it six but we're very likely up upgrade Niel.

    So i'm guessing we'll be using picks 8, 29, 30, 34 and whatever pick we get for Clark (possibly pick 16).

    Crameri will be upgraded for us, and Williams and Daniher have both retired.

    I think we're waiting for trade week before we offload anyone else (we have to get rid of at least one more under AFL rules).

    For the rookie list, Nick Lower definitely upgraded, Sibosado and Pearce hopefully will too. Ruffles and Shepheard are goneski, and the injury-plagued Gavin Roberts gets another year.

    Delisted:

    Ben Ross
    Ed Lower
    Brayden Norris
    Marcus White (Rookie)
    Matthew Scott (Rookie)

    Retirements:
    Brady Rawlings

    Possible Upgrades: Pederson, Delaney, Mullet

    There is likely to be a few trades happening on our front as well, so we probably won't see too many ND picks. But will be a few in the rookie draft.

    Wright will be upgraded I think Callinan is as well although I haven't searched out the article.

    Wright has been upgraded and I'm sure there was another rookie listed player that was upgraded with him.

    At this stage Callinan is an unknown, he will remain on the list for the 2012 season it's just as to whether it will be on the senior or rookie list.

    Edit: Riley is the other I think.

    You'd think Pedersen is a certainty to get promoted.

    Delaney and Pederson are near certainties in my opinion to be promoted, Mullet is a possible. If they all do only leaves Daw on our rookie list.

    Re: Your clubs rookie upgrades and draft picks?

    Why did Delaney go out of the team? Injury or just better options?

    If I remember correctly it was a bit of both. First got an injury than Grima got back into the senior side.

    Re: Your clubs rookie upgrades and draft picks?

    Delaney got destroyed by Barry Hall. He was very impressive before then. He is a very strong one-on-one player and shows good composure with the footy, he just lacks a bit of pace unfortunately. Given this was his 3rd year on the rookie list a call needs to be made on him. The fact that he was sent in for surgery before the VFL finals to make sure he got himself right for 2012 suggests he'll definitely be upgraded.

    Pedersen has been/will be upgraded. He recently signed a contract to keep him at the club until the end of 2013.

    Daw will probably remain on the rookie list for his 3rd year. No need to upgrade him yet.

    Mullett is an interesting one. My guess is he'll stay on the rookie list but he'll be our nominated player to upgrade before round 1. We can do that now since Harvey is our only veteren.

    Scott and White were delisted. I really felt for Matty Scott. He has a bit of Matthew Boyd about him in my opinion. The moment he did his ACL his fate was sealed unfortunately. It would have been his 3rd year next season and he barely would have been fit for any games to prove himself.

    As Clonkers mentioned, Rawlings, Ross, Lower and Norris have been delisted. Pretty sure since Brady was outside the list he doesn't free up a senior list spot.

    During trade week I expect us to offer up Pratt, Warren, McKinley and Urquhart up for peanuts. If the first two don't find a new home they'll probably be delisted. The latter two are contracted so we'll just have to put up with them for another year if no-one wants them.

    Dahlhaus will get elevated from the rookie list this year, Panos is quite likely to get elevated too (60-70%).

    Unsure with draft picks at the moment as changes to the senior list won't occur until during or after trade week. Might depend on who is out of contract and who is still contracted as we can't really afford to get rid of players contracted for next season.

    Bit confused here now. Is this the same Delaney who was in the 2010 TAC cup team of the year?
