Adelaide

With the Crows out of the premiership picture, the club would be best served chasing draft picks and maximising the value of experienced campaigners. Eddie Betts, Josh Jenkins, Alex Keath, Hugh Greenwood and Sam Jacobs have all been linked with other clubs and Adelaide should take advantage of this situation and improve their draft position and salary cap.

With Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy linked with a move back home, the Crows should look at securing the 25-year-old’s services, but only if it doesn’t massively compromise their position in the draft.

The Crows are already armed with pick four and two second-round picks and should look to lock-in South Australian talent to avoid the go-home factor which has plagued them in recent years. Norwood’s Dylan Stephens and Glenelg’s Will Gould have already emerged as potential first-round talents and will be on Adelaide’s radar heading into the draft.
