Former Port Adelaide games record holder Kane Cornes has claimed that the Crows should come calling for delisted Eagle, Jarrod Brander.

While Brander was used in multiple positions throughout his 22 games across four-seasons with West Coast, Cornes believed that an agreement to join Adelaide could offer him stability.

The outspoken pundit state on SEN SA Breakfast that the 22-year-old would slot into the Crows forward line nicely, adding to their stocks as a third or fourth tall.

"The one that works for Adelaide, the best player out of the delisted market is Jarrod Brander from the Eagles," Cornes said.

“Jarrod Brander is the last first-round pick that the Eagles have had in 2017.

“He has been a victim of the Aliir Aliir syndrome, where the coach doesn’t know where to play him. He [Aliir] was a victim of his own versatility [at the Swans], Jarrod Brander is exactly that.

“He’s not a key forward, he’s not a key defender, he’s 195cm, he’s a good size, but he’s your third or fourth tall. He’s Tom Lynch."

“He is in Adelaide’s best 22 right now. He replaces Tom Lynch instantly, just go and get him for free," Cornes said.

“I think a fresh start would be perfect for him in Adelaide, he just walks into Tom Lynch’s role.”

Cornes' opinion comes in the wake of the suggestion that the Bendigo Pioneers product was keen on spending more time forward of the ball should he land at a second club.

On Monday, The West Australian indicated that there was also some interest in Brander from Carlton and Geelong during the trade period.

Standing at 195cm tall, Brander's principal downfall was West Coast's depth of key position players.

Josh Kennedy, Jack Darling, and Oscar Allen were all favoured up forward, while Bailey Williams and Nathan Vardy were often the preferred backup ruckmen to Nic Naitanui.
